There Be Demons...or Maybe Not

TITLE: There Be Demons
AUTHOR: M.K. Theodoratus
PUBLISHER: Wooden Pants Publishing
PUBLISHING DATE: September 26, 2017

FROM GOODREADS: When demons overrun the city, Gillen, the leader of the Gargoyle Guardians, requests reinforcements. His commanders send four untrained teens from the projects. Not only does Britt Kelly discover she must cope with a new high school but demons truly exist.


MY THOUGHTS:  I tried, I really tried.  I made it about 50 pages in and I just couldn't finish this book.  I feel badly because I think it's a case of "it's not you it's me."  I loved that one of the main characters, Gillen, is a gargoyle.  And I love the concept of Gargoyle Guardians.  However, neither the gargoyles or the book ever really took off for me.  

I read some of the reviews of "There Be Demons" and it seems to be a pretty well-loved book.  I think if the synopsis interests you, you shouldn't hesitate to pick it up just because I DNF'ed it.  In fact, I haven't even totally written the book off as I hope to give it another chance one day.

Many thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for my copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

MY RATING: DFN

  1. Ooh a gargoyle! I've read one book about gargoyles, but it wasn't very good, and I've been wanting to try some more. I might give this one a try.

  2. There need to be more gargoyle books. I liked the first of Lisa Blackwood's Gargoyle & Sorceress series. Really must read the rest of it!

  4. Such a bummer you didn't like the book. I hate not finishing a book but sometimes it has to be done.
