Format: Hardcover
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!

This book rocks!! Nov. 12 2007
By P. Alyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
First off, I have a line of 7 students waiting for this book. The wait will be worth it!!! We're back to Grubbs, which is awesome...and he's enrolled in school, which adds a new dynamic. There are signs that point to the end, but who cares since it's such a fun read? The end is a total cliff-hanger (like always!), but there's no preview for the next book (sadness ensues...) Read, read this book. Darren Shan is the man!

Wonderful!! Sept. 3 2013
By Tyler S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an important book in the series and drops many references to the last book Bec. Shan is exceptional at making such a grisly series palatable for younger readers whilst still holding an adults attention as well.
I highly recommend the series "Zom-B" to those that enjoy this.

I have been reading this series and I absolutely love it. This book starts off a little slow but toward the end it gets so intense! I really recommend.
