Darren Shan's Demonata series continues with more shocks, demons and thrilling twists in the chilling, Bec. "I'm almost through the door when something breathes behind me, 'Beccccc...' I turn.
I can't see anything but I know I'm not alone. I want to call for help but I can't. Then, in a blur, claws dart out of the darkness...a twisted face...fiery eyes...rows of teeth...the demon grabs me!" As a baby, Bec fought for her life.
As a trainee priestess, she fights to fit in to a tribe that needs her skills but fears her powers. And when the demons come, the fight becomes a war. Bec's magic is weak and untrained, until she meets the druid Drust.
