Seattle’s demons are scared and wreaking havoc in the rainy city. They’ve burned their way through the Seattle underground, threatened to topple the Space Needle, and sent a twenty foot statue rampaging downtown.
It’s up to Nathaniel Grimlock, the teenage Demonkeeper, to control them, but when he discovers what’s stirring them up—a legendary monster known as the Demoneater—he finds that he’s in over his head yet again!Loved this one, finished it in one day! Buckingham did an amazing job. I loved how he worked his demons into the modern world, even including real world land marks. The troll under the bridge is an awesome example! Plus there are pictures at the end of some of the places in the book!
I have to admit I haven't read the first book in the series. After having read this one it has definitely made me want to get a copy of Demonkeeper. But even though it is the second book in the series, I think it is capable of standing on it's own. I don't feel as if I was missing any important information and I wasn't at any point.
I really liked his characters too. Sandy and Ritchie were both smart and funny. I wasn't too sure about Nat at the beginning. Sorry I think the way he treats Sandy is kinda toolish, I did start to like him in the end though. I really liked the different demons and their different personalities as well.
I kinda figured out who the villain was early on in the story, but it really didn't take away from my enjoyment. In fact I couldn't wait to get to the part when the heroes finally figured it out.
Over all I think this book was awesome! I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an awesome new read. I can't wait to get to the third book which is quietly waiting on my Kindle. (thank you Melissa!!) and I plan on picking up a copy of the first book asap. Also I think it is readable for both younger readers as well as adult readers. There's nothing inappropriate for younger teens/pre-teens and there's lots of action. But there is also a lot that would interest us older kids as well.
Til Next Time!
