Grubbs figures that it's better for Bill-E to believe that Dervish is his father, since his real father is dead. It's great to see a father figure who is not portrayed as either evil and sadistic or a total whiny useless Care Bear.

As far as villains go, Lord Loss is evil through and through, creepy, and even I wanted him to leave.It seems poised to snag whatever parts of the YA demographic that have not been sucked into the Twilight vortex. Grubbs has to deal with the possibility of his Uncle being secretly a werewolf, on top of dealing with the possibility that the things that killed his parents are still looming over him. He always tells at least a variation of the truth, sometimes wording it so that he can find a loophole that will work in his favour, such as when he let Davida Haym film him and his familiars but never actually agreed to let her live to complete the movie, but never flat out lying.

Darren Shan is the number-one best-selling author of the series THE SAGA OF DARREN SHAN, the DEMONATA and more recently the SAGA OF LARTEN CREPSLEY and ZOM-B. His need to drain the sorrow from humans is so strong, he has foiled past attempts the Demonata made to destroy mankind. His books have been read by millions of people around the world and translated into more than 25 languages. There’s a specific point at the end of the book that devastated me, but the humour really lifted things up, but didn’t take away the fact that something horrific just happened, it eases you into a sense of feeling safe, like you can breathe. Despite his cruel nature, Lord Loss is not entirely evil; by the standards of the Demonata he could even be considered a "good guy".I read this a long time ago, back in my early teens, and even met Darren Shan at a book signing at my school. The death of Grubb’s friend Loch around book 3 and Bill-E’s involvement was a haunting, horrifying piece of writing and Bill-E’s death several books later as a result was a brilliant example of a story tying together while also being a deeply moving moment In keeping with the traditions of epic fantasy 2 new POV characters are introduced. This is the only occasion on which he has shown genuine care for a mortal, and it is implied that the two may have shared a romantic relationship. Btw I’m an adult in my 50’s and have read a huge range of books so don’t let the fact that they are teen books put you off! In this world, Bec, a young priestess is thrust into a seemingly hopeless journey to save her people.

A suprise in a way that it was so uniquely different from everything I have ever read that I found myself reading it entirely through in the one sitting. As a massive fan of the Darren Shan saga I had high expectations for this series, I was pleased to discover that the first book - Lord Loss well and truly lived up to all of these!Fearing for Grubbs’ safety, Bill-E eventually shares his theory that Dervish is a werewolf, as many Gradys were prone to lycanthropy, which manifests itself at puberty. When Grubbs Grady first encounters Lord Loss and his evil minions, he learns three things:* the world is vicious,* magic is possible,* demons are real. Anyway I remember reading this series when I was about 13/14 and really liking it (all of the disembowelling helped :D).
