The Demonata Slawter is a book about mystery and adventure. Slawter is about demons that jump out of manholes and grab you. It all happens in a blur, and is so fast, so violently shocking, that several people in the crowd cry out with alarm. The demon has fierce yellow eyes, four long arms with claws at the ends, a mouth full of fangs. Bill-E, Juni, and I thought that demons are creatures of myth, that's the phantasmagorical creations of primitive superstition. The three of us had a miraculous encounter with a demonata. We walked into the room having a gut feeling that something wasn't right. We walked and we could tell that some of the bodies had been there for awhile. We had barely made it in the room and we heard a scratching noise behind a rock. A annoying sniffing sound, followed by a raspy chuckling. The demon began to study us and before we even thought of what it was we began to run. A voice within me says Not yet, you cannot let it attack you from behind. You will die if you turn your back on it. The demon comes charging but my feet will not move.


The Demonata Slawter is a good book if you like adventure or horror. I didn't want to put it down; it left me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. I especially got nervous when the demon smelled them all in the room and then they started running and the demon almost killed them. The book was an amazing book that I enjoyed reading. I would like to read more books like this and hope that they have as much action like this book did.
