Darren Shan's Demonata #2: Demon Thief
“A huge, jagged patch of light forms at the foot of my bed. Then a shape presses through. I’m too horrified to scream. It’s a monster from my very worst nightmare – pale red skin; dark red eyes; no nose; and sharp, grey teeth. As it leans further forward I see a hole in the left side of its chest, and inside – dozens of tiny, hissing snakes. The monster frowns and stretches a hand towards me!”
