There Be Demons is the first book in the Andor Demon Wars Series by M.K Theodoratus is a really great YA urban fantasy- with an action-packed adventure woven through it. There is lots of danger, demons, gargoyle guardians, discoveries, mayhem, drama, mystery, magic, battles, and so much more…. As with my previous read from Ms. Theodoratus, this story made for great reading, with an intriguing plot, well written story, fantastic world building, and interesting characters who swept me along with them as their adventure unfolded, engaging my attention right till the very end.
This is a very different world to ‘ours’- where the city of Trebridge has been invaded by Demons from Gehenathh. The only thing standing in the demon’s way are four gargoyle guardians who are tasked with protecting the city. When Gillen, the leader of the gargoyles sends for reinforcements, the commanders (Angeli) send four inexperienced teenagers to help battle the demons.
Britt Kelly is one of the teens who were drafted by the Angeli commanders and sent to fight beside the gargoyle guardians in The Demon Wars. There is a lot to learn, especially if they hope to win. As these unlikely heroes hold the fate of Trebridge and all humankind in their hands. .
This has a definite good vs evil theme to it that had me cheering the band of misfits on- anxiously reading to find out how the story plays out. Again, Ms. Theodoratus has created wonderful characters who have their own, somewhat quirky, and very individual personalities- who continued to develop and grow over the course of the story. Brit and her friends definitely discover a lot, not only about the world (of demons) but also about themselves.
Thank you, Ms. Theodoratus!
