Synopsis

The Demon's Watch Tales of Fayt, Book 1 by Conrad Mason

'We're the Demon's Watch, son. Protectors of Port Fayt. Scourge of all sea scum. Don't tell me you've never heard of us?' Half-goblin boy Joseph Grubb lives in Fayt, a bustling trading port where elves, trolls, fairies and humans live side by side. Fed up of working at the Legless Mermaid tavern, Grubb dreams of escape - until a whirlwind encounter with a smuggler plunges him into Fayt's criminal underworld. There he meets the Demon's Watch and learns of their mission to save the port from a mysterious and deadly threat. Can Grubb and his new allies uncover the dark plot in time, or will they end up as fish food in Harry's Shark Pit?

Reviews

This book is a great family read; it has some of the best pirate banter that you will find...written with oodles of imagination, humour and wit...Conrad has created a fantastic start to an amazing adventure - I loved every minute embroiled in this story. Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books

This book is fantasy at its very best. A brilliant story, matched with amazing writing and characters you want to grab from the page and give a huge hug, makes a book that is just un-put-downable! Readaraptor

Conrad Mason's descriptions of life in Port Fayt, his humour and his turn of phrase make The Demon's Watch a complete joy to read. Babbleabout

This can only be described as a rip roaring adventure - you get sad moments, followed by laughs, mixed in with fighting and gore. This book really does offer something for everyone and should be enjoyed by all!!! If you are a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean or the works of Terry Pratchett, I think this book is made for YOU!!! District YA

Amid the swashbuckling and shoot-outs, the ethos and humour recall the straighter-faced Discworld books. SFX
