Wolf Island by Darren Shan

As the mysterious Shadow builds an army of demons, Grubbs Grady and his team search desperately for answers. But when they follow up a new lead, it takes them to an old, unexpected foe - the Lambs.

"We spot the werewolves as we skim the treetops. Mutated, vicious, hairy monstrosities, all fangs, claws and muscles. The beast within me tries to force its way to the surface, howling silently at its warped brethren. I've never rid myself of the wolf..."

The curse of the Gradys has returned with a vengeance. Werewolves are on the loose. And they're hungry! (Book description).

My Thoughts:

Wolf Island is the 8th book in Darren Shan's book series The Demonata. Told from the POV of Grubbs Grady, this book coincides with the events in book 7 (and as well as book 9 (Dark Calling), which comes out November this year).

Action packed and fast paced, do not let the size of it fool you! Events that had you guessing in book 7 come clear and explanations are given where they weren't in the past. You learn a lot of new things about our hero, Grubbs. In the past, we have known Grubbs to be many things: Unsure, funny, cowardly... but beastly?? Lets just say in Wolf Island, things (and people!) get monstrous. I really enjoyed the fact that Darren Shan went more into the Werewolf perspective. We also learned a lot more about the Lambs, which I wouldn't have expected since they didn't necessarily have a huge part in previous novels. Darren Shan delved us deeper into Grubb's world... one which I hope to never live in. All together a great book. Now what I want to know is... What's Kernel up to?!

Rating: 4.5/5.0
