We love Derek Landy’s latest horrifying creation, Demon Road. However, the question isn’t whether it’s one of our favourites, but rather if other book bloggers and reviewers liked it just as much.
After some Internet snooping, we found that the overwhelming majority of reviewers were indeed impressed with this rip-roaring, beast of a thriller.
Charnell from Review From A Book Worm said, “Demon Road instantly appealed to me, not only because it sounded awesome but also because it reminded me quite a bit of Supernatural, which just happens to be one of my favourite TV shows.”
The similarities seem to appeal to a lot of reviewers, Cait from Paper Fury saying, “Plus you know the TV show, Supernatural? That I am a massive and wild and unabashed fan of? WELL. This totally reminded me of it!”
She also said that there was “sooo much sass and action and it’s just MIND BLOWINGLY GOOD.”
While Nigethan from the Book Bag wasn’t 100% sure this book matched its predecessor, ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’, they applauded Derek Landy’s use of action: “His action scenes are exquisitely written, as readers have come to expect, with plenty of gore that is used in such a way that it maintains shock value throughout, rather than feeling gratuitous”.
On top of that, they also said, “I’ll definitely be back for the sequel.”
