Darren Shan's Demonata #7: Death's Shadow

“I’m a human sponge – I soak up memories. I feel like a thief, stealing secrets with a touch. I don’t like this gift. It’s intrusive and sneaky. I think it’s harmless, but I can’t be sure.”

The apocalypse came and the world burned, but it wasn’t the end. From the destruction, new life has emerged. After centuries of imprisonment, Bec is back to face the Demonata, more powerful than ever. But the demons no longer stand alone. Something else has crawled out of the darkness with Bec. The hellish world of the Demonata has spawned a brand new nightmare… something even more cruel and vicious than Lord Loss!
