Demon Road is a new young adult novel from Skulduggery Pleasant author Derek Landy. Mixing horror and fantay with a touch of teenage angst, it’s a never-ending road trip of legends, monsters and yes, demons. I enjoyed it.
Amber is not having a good day. First: she’s just found out that her parents are demons, and so is she. Second: they and their friends are going to kill and devour her to absorb her demonic energy as they have been doing with all their previous children over the last century. To escape she goes on the run aided by mysterious driver Milo, who may or may not be the manifestation of an urban legend, and Glen, a talkative and slightly annoying young Irish man doomed by a death curse. Together they travel the Demon Road, a metaphysical highway linking the supernatural underworld that hides in plain sight throughout the dark heart of America. Read the rest here.
