The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fantastic finale to a fantastic series but most definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Other masters of the macabre for teenagers include Charlie Higson (The Enemy series), Darren Shan (Demonata series) and Michael Grant (Gone series).

Synopsis

American Monsters by Derek Landy

The epic conclusion in the mind-blowing supernatural thriller from bestselling author Derek Landy, creator of international sensation Skulduggery Pleasant. Bigger, meaner, stronger, Amber closes in on her murderous parents as they make one last desperate play for power. Her own last hopes of salvation, however, rest beyond vengeance, beyond the abominable killers - living and dead - that she and Milo will have to face. For Amber's future lies in her family's past, in the brother and sister she never knew, and the horrors beyond imagining that befell them.

About the Author

Derek Landy

Derek Landy is far too modest to talk about any awards or accolades his books may have won. He will not, for instance, mention the fact that his first book, Skulduggery Pleasant, won the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book of the Decade Award AND the Red House Children's Book Award, or that his second, Playing With Fire, won an Irish Book Award for Children's Book of the Year, or that his third, The Faceless Ones, is his mother's personal favourite. He could go on, all the way to The End of the World, which is the title of the story he wrote for World Book Day 2012, but he won’t.

He lives in Ireland with a variety of cats, a German Shepherd, and two geriatric Staffordshire Bull Terriers who keep peeing on his kitchen floor because they think it's funny.
