My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Throw together a mix of deadly demons and guardians, a spunky heroine and some trusty sidekicks along with danger and action and you get: There be Demons by M.K. Theodoratus. This book was labeled fantasy but I think it could also be read by Young Adults. The story follows Britt, a 14 year old teenage girl who would love nothing more than to be a normal human, going about her day and being allowed to obsess over teenage stuff like love, who wore which clothes better and how to navigate her new school. Gillen, the leader of the gargoyles wants nothing to do with that but he is forced to help Britt come to terms with her magical powers and her importance because he needs her help, and that of her friends to defeat the demons that want to overrun their world. This book was a delightful read, the plot was great, and I did not feel as if the author was stretching the believability of her characters. I think the pace was kept well throughout the book, from action into the downtime, I never felt bored or tempted to skip ahead..
