Hell's Heroes by Darren Shan

Title: Hell's Heroes

Author: Darren Shan

Published: London : HarperCollins Children's, 2009

Pages: 235

Series: Book 10, Demonata

Snippet: "I start to follow, assuming it's the demon, but when he rips the locker door off and tears open a lunchbox, I realise he's found a sandwich."

Summary: May contain spoilers! The final dramatic conclusion to Darren Shan's international phenomena, The Demonata. Expect the unexpected..."The girl gazes up at me. She's even younger than I thought, clutching a small teddy bear in one hand. 'Are you the bogey man?' she whispers, eyes round. 'Yes,' I croak, then take hold of her head with my huge, scarred, blood-soaked hands and crush..." Beranabus and Dervish are gone. Bec has formed an unholy alliance with Lord Loss. Kernel is blind, held on Earth against his will. Grubbs is mad with grief and spinning out of control. The demons are crossing. The Disciples are falling. The Shadow is waiting. Welcome to the end.

Review: Hell's Heroes, being the final book in the Demonata series, I had some expectations for it and I was a little disappointed.  The majority of the book seemed like a filler for the big event at the end.

The story was interesting enough. It wasn't anything surprising or anything like that. There was only one part at the end that I was a little surprised about.

Kernel is still my favourite character and Bec is my second favourite. I don't really like Grubb's all that much to be honest.

To be honest I felt that Hell's Heroes was just a book. It wasn't anything special at all. But if you're a fan of Darren Shan's other books then you may enjoy Hell's Heroes. But as far as endings to series' go Hell's Heroes wasn't too bad.
