All of Darren Shans books are amazing, and this ones just as fun as the other ones in the Demonata series!
Sebastian Davies (Amazon.com)
I thought that Blood Beat was an improvement on Bec, but didn't enjoy it as much as Lord Loss, Demon Thief and Slawter.
This book returns to the character of Grubbs Grady (along with Dervish, Bill-E and Juni). Grubbs has been getting ill and feeling an odd change beginning to occur around a full moon...will he fall prey to his werewolf genes or can Dervish and Juni save him from the curse before it is too late...?
Unlike the first three books in the series, this book is quite slow paced and takes a long time for the actions to begin. However, this is because the next book in the series continues directly after the cliffhanger ending of this one, do it is only really the first half of a book. The first three quarters are quite slow but it really picks up in the last 60 or 70 pages and the last chapter is amazing, its the best chapter from any Darren Shan book ever, its BRILLIANT and totally worth reading through the less-exciting chapters during the first part of the book.
From J. Kaye's Book Blog
Grubbs is affected by the family curse, a wolfen gene, causing with to gradually turn into a werewolf. Earlier on in the Demonata series, Bill-E was affected by this curse, and Grubbs and Dervish had to fight Lord Loss to free him. This time though, Lord Loss won't be generous and help Grubbs. Grubbs has to fight it because if the werewolf in him comes out, it will fuse with his magic and because nearly unstoppable.
Months after the demon attack at Slawter, Juni comes to Carcery Vale and starts working as a school guidance counselor. She starts helping Grubbs with the nightmares he has been having about his dead sister, Gret and about being a werewolf. She also is helping him cope with another one of his friends dying.
Out of all of the Demonata series thus far, this one has been the most rewarding. It's hard to believe this series keeps getting better and better, but it does.

After four thrilling novels featuring Grubbs Grady and his adventures with his crazy but caring uncle, his half-brother, Bill-E, and all the demons and monsters he's had to face (especially the one who took his parents away from him), Grubbs is back.
And this time he discovers that the only monster he has to face is himself.
Grubbs begins to have nightmares, ones with him covered in blood and being attacked by his late sister. But whenever he wakes up, he shrugs them aside, not thinking twice about them, most likely because he just doesn't want to know what they mean.
Aside from his sudden attraction to the moon and the need to howl, Grubbs has other problems on his mind. Like the differences between his new best friend, Loch, and his old good friend, now turned brother, Bill-E. Once Loch entered the picture, Grubbs just doesn't seem to have time for his first true friend and it's killing him inside, ironically. And the horrifying issues that attending school brings just don't make it any better.
Grubbs needs to get his priorities straight, especially the one dealing with him turning into a vicious monster, before it takes over and makes everything much worse.
With this fifth installment of THE DEMONATA series, fans will not be disappointed in this very thrilling, freaky, and funny novel about everyone's favorite character, Grubbs. With an ending that will drive you crazy, we can all say that Darren Shan has done it again!

book keeps the reader interested
when i started reading the first book of this series i could not put it down and ended up reading it by the end of the day. i am usually interested in these types of books where there is magic demons and other types of fighting and horror. when i finished reading this one i was very anxious to go on and read the next one. my favorite aspect of the book is the authors way of writing the scene in a way that puts the image in your head of what you just read.
i recommend this book for readers 12 and older who are interested in fantasy and horror.
