Young’s Scary Book Review: Lord Loss by Darren Shan

Grubitsch Grady, one of two offspring from chess obsessed parents, had lived a normal life until one day. His parents and his sister gets him out of the house for reasons unknown, but out of curiosity, Grubitsch sneaks back into the house and meets with Lord Loss; a demon who killed his parents and sister. Months after escaping, he goes and lives with his uncle Dervish. Whilst living with his uncle, Grubitsch meets Bille-E who deemed that Dervish was a werewolf which results in Grubitsch finding out about his family timeline and lycanthrophy. When Grubitsch and Bill-E stalk Dervish in the middle of a full moon Bill-E unexpectedly turns into a werewolf. In order to turn him back both Dervish and Grubitsch compete with Lord Loss, and wins, but with the cost of Dervish’s soul. Many months later, Dervish regains conscious and reunites with Grubitsch.

I would recommend this book to kids in middle school, or ages 11 to 13, or someone who has knack for reading made-up stories. The reason being that this is an adventure/scary book with fictional characters and events for readers with free time.

Young rates this book 3/5 stars.
