This is a book for anyone with a short attention span. It's not a great literary classic, nor is there any deep symbolism in the writing. It's just a book about a boy in a world of demons, werewolves and chess, and when it comes to providing entertainment without requiring a great deal of thought this book delivers. It follows the tale of Grubbs Grady, orphaned after an incident involving a demon lord and his lackeys (providing one of the most gruesome scenes in all of Shan's work). Living with his uncle, the charismatic Dervish Grady, he tries to live a normal life once again. However certain nocturnal events involving his friend Billy Spleen (yes, that's his real name) result in the summoning of the demon who's name is emblazoned on the front of the book for a climatic (if rather unorthodox) showdown. It moves at a quick enough pace to keep you bombarded with new events and discoveries, but not too quickly so you are able to picture all that happens, a balance which is quite hard to achieve.
I thought this book was terrific. I thought it was fast-paced without being to fast to not know what is going on in the story. It is at times gory and other humorous. I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Darren Shans other works such as The Saga of Darren Shan (Cirque Du Freak).
