About this deal

Grubbs narrowly escapes death, but suffers from PTSD and is hospitalised due to his poor mental state.

He also has the ability to feed on a persons pain, which he needs the way a human needs food and water.

The book is very well written and I was soaked into it from the very first second I started reading it. In Lord Loss, the title character is first seen killing the family of our protagonist, Grubbs, accompanied by Vein and Artery. Then afterward, at the cave, before and after Bec, Grubbs, Kernel and Beranabus time travel through the power of the Kah Gash. His speech pattern is characterised by a tone of immense sadness, coupled with the use of quite a sophisticated vocabulary; he rarely uses abbreviations, and always addresses characters by their full names as opposed to nicknames.

I know that the target audience is teenagers, and despite this, I would have given it 4 stars as it has a great storyline, however, the author was writing in first person as a teenage character. He gained an attraction to the game after seeing Drust with the Original Chess Board, a gift from the Old Creatures.But then, by the very end of the book, Grubbs has another great growth of maturity and becomes responsible and interesting again. The book repeats the formula of The Saga of Darren Shan and will no doubt be loved by Shan's many fans. They are not mouthpieces to tell kids what the author believes is wrong with the real world now, like so many YA books are right now. Lord Loss vowed to make the Gradys' deaths even more long and painful, then proceeded to kill all the people remaining in Slawter in the most painful ways he could think of. He doesn't have a heart, instead he has a hole on his left chest filled with snakes and he's got 8 hands!
