Darren Shan is the author of the twelve book series 'The Saga of Darren Shan'. His adventures have been read by millions of people around the world in several different languages, yet much of his life remains shrouded in mystery. He lives in seclusion in the depths of Ireland. And he never drinks blood. Or so he claims.
Gr 7Up-Kernel is a teenager with an odd talent-he sees pieces of colored light floating in the air, and if he concentrates he can put them together like a jigsaw puzzle into a window shape. But everything goes horribly wrong when a demonic face jumps out of one of the windows and draws the boy into another dimension. When Kernel reappears in his own world, he doesn't quite remember all that happened, but figures out that his baby brother was also kidnapped by the demon. The family moves to a new town, but there is no escape from the horror that has entered their lives. Demon Thief follows Lord Loss (Little, Brown, 2005), the first volume in this grim and very gory series from the author of the "Cirque du Freak" books (Little, Brown). Readers who love the ghastly and demand a fast pace will be asking for more.-Walter Minkel, New York Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
