The Demon's Lexicon af Sarah Rees Brennan (2009)

  1. 30
    Guardian of the Dead af Karen Healey (midnightbex)
    midnightbex: As richly told as the Demon's Lexicon, 'Guardian of the Dead' incorporates Maori lore and Greek legends into a well written and engaging fantasy.
  2. 52
    Dæmonernes by af Cassandra Clare (stephxsu)
    stephxsu: Lots of action, richly described alt. world setting, and Nick and Jace are similarly attractive bad boys
  3. 00
    Prom Dates from Hell af Rosemary Clement-Moore (KATandHEN)
    KATandHEN: Supernatural shenanegans with snappy dialogue.

    Nightlife af Rob Thurman (Anonym bruger, lquilter)
    lquilter: Readers of either the Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman, and the Demon's Lexicon trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan, will find much to enjoy in both series -- both of which likely would appeal to fans of "Supernatural". Both series of books feature a pair of brothers, essentially orphaned, with traumatic parental relationships, and one especially sought after by a demonic race; and a lot of angst and sarcastic quippiness. Of the two series, the Brennan series has a much more YA vibe, albeit an older YA vibe; and the Thurman series has a more urban fantasy for adults vibe.… (mere)

Well now, that was just plain fascinating, and even with a trope set I usually can't stand, I found myself moved by it. ( )

wow. just. wow. ( )

A near-perfect YA fantasy whose only shortcoming is the forced "witty" dialogue which is bad enough to throw the reader out of the book enough times to subtract a star. The book's biggest strengths are its complex and very well thought-out relationships between the characters and the powerful, stunning surprise ending. Definitely worth a read.

The American edition has an unfortunate cover indeed, all pouty lipglossy angst-muffin. I like the UK one much better. ( )

A very good, surprisingly different urban fantasy. I really like Brennan's boldness in so many aspects of this story; it's unusual to see an author take so many metaphorical "risks" in writing.

Nick and his brother Alan never get any rest. They move incessantly from one place to the next, on the run from the demons and magicians who relentlessly pursue them and their insane mother. But Alan and Nick couldn't be more different. The former is compassionate, sensitive, and bookish, the latter cold, dangerous, and angry. And when the plight of brother and sister Jamie and Mae ends up in their hands, the two brothers find their already dangerous life is about to get downright deadly.

While demons and magicians are a staple of dark fantasy, I personally have never seen them done quite this way before, which is no mean feat. I found the demon marking and demon dancing elements of the story especially fascinating. But better even than the concept are the characters. Each of the four main characters comes vibrantly alive, even the hard-to-like Nick, whose perspective runs the story. Jamie is funny and likable (I laughed several times at his comments), Mae is fiery and independant, and Alan is hands-down one of the absolute nicest, sweetest, most selfless people I have ever met between pages. The entire book I was torn between giving him a high-five and a huge hug. But it is with Nick's character that the author really shines, using him to pull off one of the most strikingly brilliant twists I've ever seen, and definitely did not see coming because it was hiding behind another twist. Wow. I won't spoil, but it's one of those twists that makes you mentally review the entire novel and gasp when you realize where all the clues were planted. And it makes you realize how good an author Brennan has to be to write an entire novel the way she did.

Extra points for having a climax arc that had me holding my breath and made my eyes mist up. Definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for something different.

I thought I was easily predicting the plot of the book as I was reading along. It was still an interesting read and I was enjoying the characters. Then the author threw a curve ball I was not expecting out of nowhere. I was glued until the last page when that one hit me on the head. Not my typical genre, but I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. ( )

For Mum and Dad - I've always thought that raising a child must be one of the scariest things in the world. You never know when they're going to live on ketchup, run away to America, or badmouth you on television. Well, in case I ever try that last one, you can display this to the world: I'm happy, I'm healthy, and I love you. I wrote a book!

You didn't do so badly. (And the ketchup was delicious.)

The pipe under the sink was leaking again. It wouldn't have been so bad, except that Nick kept his favorite sword under the sink.
