In the final installment of the terrifying, gory Demonata series, Kernal and Grubbs discover that the Shadow is back in a new host: Bec. The Kah-Gash will have to find a way to defeat Death once and for all without sacrificing the universe.
"I was born in London in 1972 and moved to Ireland when I was 6 years old, where I've lived ever since. I always wanted to be a writer - I've loved telling stories since I was a child. I started out writing books for adults, and managed to get a couple published. One day, on a whim, I decided to try a book for children. The result was Cirque Du Freak. Much to my surprise, it took off, and I became a de facto children's author! Since then I've used my ill-gotten gains to buy lots of comic-strip art and travel the world. When I'm not working or traveling, I like watching movies. I've even been known to read the odd book or two."
Darren is working on his first standalone, the Thin Executioner, coming August 2010 as well as a new four-book Cirque Du Freak spin off series, the Saga of Larten Crepsley, pubbing Fall 2010.
