Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lights. Camera. Slawter!

Grubbs Grady and his half-brother Bill-E are thrilled to join their uncle Dervish as on-set consultants for the newest movie by cult horror producer David A Hayms. Shot in a deserted town renamed Slawter, the demon-themed movie is to be Hayms's masterpiece. But as strange incidents disrupt the set, Grubbs begins to wonder whether more than filming is afoot.

Review:

"[F]ull of page-turning adventure. Right from the start you are hooked....[A] powerfully well-written novel. The language and characterization will envelop the reader." Children's Literature

Review:

"Shan gives masters like Poe and King a run for their money with unexpected plot twists and vile descriptions that surpass the gross and rival the grisly....Best of all, Grubbs plays center stage yet again." VOYA

Review:

"A fleeting read with plenty of bloody action (and mere hints of anything else), this sequel to Lord Loss introduces promising hints of Grubbs's untapped magical potential." Horn Book

Review:

"Shan is not just a mindless purveyor of grisly thrills. Like all good fantasists, he is interested in showing the reactions of ordinary people to extraordinary events....Shan's portrayal of his troubled hero is convincing and affecting." The Telegraph (U.K.)
