      Lord Loss by Darren Shan is a great book. It is about a boy named Grubs. He is part of a magical family, but he never knew.

      There is also a family curse that he know nothing about, but some of the kids in the family turn into werewolves. There is no way to cure them other than to get the demon master Lord Loss to stop the change.

      Lord loss is all red with very fragile skin which cracks when he moves and the cracks bleed. He has

      six arms and a hole where his heart is suppose to be, which is full of snakes.

      He feeds not off the flesh of humans but there sorrow. The only way he will stop the change is by playing him in chess.

      He is obsessed with chess. The rules are that there must be three people present, the kid changing, a person to play Lord Loss and a person to defend the other while they play.

      They will have to defend there partner from Lord Loss’s two favorite familiars,

      • Artery a green creature the size of a baby, with balls of fire for eyes and hair that is either lice, roaches, or maggots. There is also Artery which is a dog with the head of crocodile.

        Lord Loss and the other person will play five games of chess and if they win the child will be changed to normal and they will be able to leave. But if they lose they are all killed.

        Grubs’s sister turns out to be changing. The family doesn’t tell Grubs and

        tries leave him at relatives house while they play Lord Loss.

        But he ends up knowing something is wrong and sneaks back to the house. As he enters his parents room just as his father loses and witnesses the horror of his parents being murdered.

        He escapes and end up on an epic journey to save his step brother who is changing as well. The book was amazing and it will make you look forward to the rest of the series.

        It is adventurous, gruesome, and very suspense full. I recommend this book.
