The world is dominated by monsters called "flesh demons." Most human tribes appease the flesh demon "gods" by offering them human sacrifices. But a small hope for humanity exists in a technologically advanced city called Haven. It has survived and thrived by staying isolated on a small, bleak island in the middle of a vast ocean, hidden for hundreds of years from the flesh demons and aggressive human city-states.
Wodan, a gifted teenage boy from Haven, finds himself mysteriously exiled from his home for no reason he can comprehend. Wodan has to battle flesh demons, their twisted minions, and humans just as warped and evil as the demons, to return home to Haven and discover who kidnapped him and dropped him into the middle of the wasteland.
Demonworld was a book of extremes for me.
Many times I was floored by beautiful prose or a brilliant plot twist. The story and setting were intriguing and kept me turning the pages. I was also impressed with the editing, since I didn't find one typo or grammar mistake.
But the next moment, I was jarred out of the fantasy world by 21st century American slang uttered by supposedly primitive tribesmen (I saw "ding-bat," "nit-wit," and "weirdo;" one primitive referred to his biceps as "cannons"). The events in the book were far removed from our own time, so I would liked to have seen dialogue with slang and speech patterns that evolved from this strange world, not our present day.

The journey is an amazing and imaginative exploration of the psyches of characters taken from civilization and dumped in one of the most hostile terrains in the world unprepared. The journey home is fraught with peril and tests the limits of the characters sanity and explores the hidden savage hidden within humanity.
The book also details the intrigue and politics of a democratic political system and some of the men caught up within it who find their ability to function becoming more and more constrained while they attempt to do what they believe to be necessary in order save humanity.
Pros: Fantastic characterizations, excellent setting, and good pacing, excellent editing.
Cons: The cover art is weak, the book title fails to do its contents justice. This book is for a mature audience, I would highly suggest pre-reading this book before allowing anyone under fifteen to read it.
I highly recommend the read, it's absolutely worth the time. The second book can't come quick enough!
There's a lot of cool creative stuff going on here. Some other review mentions that it's like Tolkien meets Mad Max and I see where they're going with that, but I think it's more than that.Read more ›

This book was quite interesting in that it took me a few hours to finish it, reading non-stop. Can't wait for the next installment.Published on March 6, 2014 by alex a
