The Lovereading4Kids comment

From its dramatic start when two boys are set on by a savage flock of ravens - with demons inhabiting the bird’s bodies - this is a thrilling and chilling adventure. Nick and Alan’s everyday life looks quite normal but the reality is very different as they are beset by the terrifying demons that can first possess and then destroy you. How they manage their scary world and keep one step ahead of the sinister magic within, is a triumph of storytelling brilliance.

Synopsis

The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

Nick and his brother Alan are on the run with their mother, who was once the lover of a powerful magician. When she left him, she stole an important charm - and he will stop at nothing to reclaim it. Now Alan has been marked with the sign of death by the magician's demon, and only Nick can save him.

But to do so he must face those he has fled from all his life - the magicians - and kill them. So the hunted becomes the hunter...but in saving his brother, Nick discovers something that will unravel his whole past...

About the Author

Sarah Rees Brennan

New York Times bestseller Sarah Rees Brennan is the author of the critically acclaimed Unspoken, a romantic Gothic mystery. The first book of her Demon's Lexicon series received three starred reviews and was an ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults.

Sarah Rees Brennan was born and raised in Ireland by the sea, where her teachers valiantly tried to make her fluent in Irish (she wants you to know it's not called Gaelic) but she chose to read books under her desk in class instead. The books most often found under her desk were Jane Austen, Margaret Mahy, Anthony Trollope, Robin McKinley and Diana Wynne Jones, and she still loves them all today.

After college she lived briefly in New York and somehow survived in spite of her habit of hitching lifts in fire engines. She began working on The Demon’s Lexicon while doing a Creative Writing MA and library work in Surrey, England. Since then she has returned to Ireland to write and use as a home base for future adventures. Her Irish is still woeful, but she feels the books under the desk were worth it. She lives in Ireland.
