About this deal

Along with sensing powerful magic in the Original Board and unlocking its secrets, Lord Loss also liked chess simply as a means of entertainment, showing a playful side. Because of Grubbs' insults to both the game of Chess and Lord Loss himself, Lord Loss vows to make the Gradys suffer, a vow that intensifies in venom as the series progresses.

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.Dervish explains to Grubbs that using magic is possible as Grubbs himself used magic to flee from Lord Loss and his minions.

So when i started reading where i left off, i didn't feel that bothered anymore about those things that happened, i just accepted them. The only way to cure him is by winning three out of five simultaneous chess games with the powerfully magical demon master Lord Loss while another person battles his familiars.No me podía imaginar como Darren Shan podría mezclar el ajedrez con la historia, pero me sorprendió el como lo hizo. And I don't think I'd let a child under a mature for his/her age 12 (and that's being generous) read this book.

If you don't like the ideas of demons, magic, and walking, talking embodiments of evil, you shouldn't read this book.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. What was my surprise when i realized i read 80 pages non-stop and was actually enjoying this frikkin story! In Bec he kills a woman by tormenting her with zombies of dead children that resembled her children that were killed by demons. The many individual cracks in his skin, which seep blood every time he even slightly moves, give his demonic appearance a nice touch as well. While at times the first book was more focused on horror the series gradually moves more towards epic fantasy, however Shan maintains his famously brutal style throughout.
