LoveReading View on The Demon's Lexicon

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.

The Demon's Lexicon Synopsis

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...
