This is what she thinks is happening after she hears things, sees things, and begins having ghoulish nightmares. In order to regain a sense of normalcy, Nora agrees to a weekend away from it all with a bunch of her friends. The getaway is at Aidan's house - the guy she can sense from across a room and kind of creeps her out.
When they go into the old Victorian home, Aidan has pretty strict rules about not going up any higher than the second floor. When questioned, he doesn't really have an answer but insists that his late grandfather indicated that it's unsafe. Of course, teens will be teens and next thing you know, the whole group of them are suddenly locked in a room without a door and a demon is beckoning them to the Challenges that await just beyond his shadow.....
Are you ready to be taken on the "living nightmare" of a lifetime? That is exactly what happens as soon as you open this book. Join Nora, Aidan, and a bunch of their friends as they try to outsmart a demon in room-after-room; each containing one friend's nightmare. Only those who can survive the trials will get to escape The Demon's Grave.
What a mind bending horror story! I was hooked from the prologue. As the story progressed you can't help but become attached to the main characters. Nora has such deep seated issues pertaining to her past and she's tries not to let it affect her. Most of the time she's successful at hiding her pain but when strange things start happening, little bits of memory force themselves to the surface. Aidan is a huge mystery throughout the book. Does he know the demon, or what his familial house harbors? Can either one of them trust each other to get them out of The Demon's Grave safely?
The writing style of this book is wonderful; smooth and flows along nicely. The entire book is engaging for the reader and there aren't any dull or boring moments. I found The Demon's Grave to be a nice and easy read. It took me a couple days to finish the book but when I wasn't able to be reading it, The Demon's Grave was all I thought about. It's one of those novels that tug at you and beg to be picked back up.
Please note that this is a trilogy and as such not all in Book 1 has been wrapped up into a nice neat package.
Also, remember that there is a Content Warning for Language, Sexual Innuendos & References, Minor Gore, & Violence.

Once I got past of the giant spider on the girl's face on the cover, I dove into the book to see what the heck this was all about. Well, I can tell you that the picture on the cover is definitely pertinent to the story. At first when I started reading the book I was a little confused as to what was going on. I had to go back a couple of times and make sure that these were college kids that the author was talking about because they read like high school kids. It's almost like the author started writing it with high school kids but decided to change it to college and just went back and added "college" where the phrase "high school" was. Most college kids, even the younger ones, have some air of maturity around them. I didn't get a sense of that from anyone in the story. One of the characters name is "Read" and it perturbed me that his name was spelled this way. Was it supposed to be "Reed" or was the "Read" pronounced like the color red, as in Eric Foreman's father on That 70s Show.
There are some things in the book that don't make sense to me or that feel like they were just thrown in there to add content. There is a part in the beginning where Nora is walking with her sisters and she finds a hand mirror on someone's lawn. Something odd happens with the mirror and I can't figure out why that was put in the book because it didn't make any sense to me and it seemed really out of place. Nora, at times, was very childish and immature. I understood that she was troubled and had a horrific past, but that didn't explain her behavior.
After the group heads to Aiden's place, the book gets weirder, not necessarily scary or creepy, just weird. The group has to go through these challenges and if they die, they stay. The demon in the book is named Damian (cliche) and I can't quite figure him out. At one point, he seems attracted to Nora as a possible love interest and she actually kisses him back because he's handsome (cliche). I don't know what Damian's deal is because he seems to want to help Nora escape but keep her there at the same time.
The challenges are definitely hard and creepy and would make anyone freak the eff out. I don't know if I will finish this series because of the issues in this book that I had. I might pick it up and start it and if it's improved, then keep reading. Otherwise, I'm not in a big hurry to read it.
This book was an action packed paranormal/fantasy thrill ride. I never knew what would happen next this book had me swiping page after page not wanting to stop, and never coming up for air until i finished the very last page, and now I just want the second book now. I can't wait till I get the chance to read the next two books. This is a very amazing, and addictive series!
There was absolutely nothing that I did not like about this book; this book was 100% perfection in my eyes, and for that reason I would recommend this book to other readers that love the Fantasy/Paranormal genera, however there is some violence and other things that may not be suitable for a younger reader, so I recommend this book to adults.
