Slawter by Darren Shan Review

Onto the third book in the series, I am sort of invested in this series now as I am interested in the magic system and the new world so had to get onto the next book we go.

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

So we are back with having Grubbs as the main character and I am not going to lie I missed him in the second book, he brings back the humour that I personally think was missed in the second book.

Story wise this is a weird one as the guys are going onto the set of a horror movie and for me I found it to be both confusing and enjoyable at the same time. This is because you do find yourself wondering what is true and what is just a movie prop and I loved it.

It was great seeing Grubbs progress as a character more in this book as he gets older and more powerful when he discovers new abilities about himself and I actually can’t wait to see more from this progression. He has slowly become my favourite character over the book even if it has only been 3 of them in a 10 book series.

This for me is the best book in the series currently and I am interested to see what else the series has got to bring to the table. However, I did find myself enjoying the Saga of Larten Crepsley more.
