If you loved the razor-sharp wit and supernatural action that made ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ the must-buy series it was, then prepare to get sucked into another Derek Landy creation: ‘Demon Road‘.
MP!er Ekta applied to our YouReview and received a free copy of ‘Demon Road’ in exchange for an honest review.
What first attracted you to ‘Demon Road’? I don’t typically read horror books, but I read a sampler I picked up at YALC and immediately wanted to read more and find out what happened to Amber and why her parents wanted to kill her.
Fave character? Definitely Milo. He’s got a very interesting past, and even now in the present he’s still a bit of a mystery.
‘Demon Road’ is quite episodic. Did you enjoy all the different stops along ‘Demon Road’ or was it a little drawn out?
I think the episodic structure suited the style of this story and I liked how there was a new sub-story at each stop, introducing the different types of monsters in this world that Amber, Milo and Glen meet along their road-trip.
Better than Skulduggery Pleasant?/If you haven’t read Skulduggery Pleasant, would you now consider it? I haven’t read Skulduggery Pleasant but I’d definitely be interested in checking it out now after reading this.
Excited for the next book in this killer series? Yes! I can’t to find out what Amber and Milo do next.
