One of Lord Loss' most notable traits, which confirms that he does have some sense of honour, is that he never lies and whenever he makes a promise he would stick to it. No matter what age this book will be scary, mainly because Darren Shan doesn't shy away from topics that others might not deem appropriate for children. Meera Flame, a friend of Dervish, who is knocked out while trying to restrain a transformed Bill-E, was supposed to help battle the demons. Darren was seventeen when he finished his first (unpublished) novel, and wrote lots more unpublished novels over the next several years. Bill-E tells Grubbs of his belief that Dervish may actually be his father, given how close they were before then, but tells Grubbs to keep it a secret from him, which he agrees.

Lord Loss battles Kirilli, Shark and Moe but is described as 'playfully slapping them away' and seen to be toying with them, as he is too powerful on his home world. However, he shows no fear when confronted with all the pieces of the Kah-Gash, who had just destroyed all the other Demon Masters, because he trusted Bec and believed that she would keep her word and protect him. It’s been over twelve years since I last read this book, coming back to it, I’m filled with so much nostalgia.I know that the target audience is teenagers, and despite this, I would have given it 4 stars as it has a great storyline, however, the author was writing in first person as a teenage character. He loves to cause as much pain, both mental and physical, as he can and needs pain the way a human needs food and drink. His Darren Dash books span many different genres -- to date has has tackled horror, science-fiction, thrillers, and even a Shakespearean-inspired Comedy!

Lord Loss masterminded the cruel plot to slowly drag Kernel towards him and, using the First Board stolen from the Druid Drust in Bec, let him realize the truth about Art. The Ka-Gash then wipes out all the demon masters but upon arriving at Lord Loss, they learn of the deal struck with Bec, that is to spare his life if he agrees to help her concuct her plan. As the book goes on the tension and sense of desperation builds to a fever-pitch, culminating in a shocking betrayal and a deadly final confrontation.Again unlike any of his demonic fellows, Lord Loss is greatly intelligent, and has mastered the use of human languages. He had a fight with Dervish and Grubbs, but eventually they escaped with the 34 survivors of the cast and crew. His sadistic side is arguably caused by his biology and unique appetite rather than his actual personality. Then afterward, at the cave, before and after Bec, Grubbs, Kernel and Beranabus time travel through the power of the Kah Gash.

While at times the first book was more focused on horror the series gradually moves more towards epic fantasy, however Shan maintains his famously brutal style throughout.

Kernel was responsible for turning Lord Loss's familiar (Artery) into a human (Art), which led to Kernel discovering his powers. His speech pattern is characterised by a tone of immense sadness, coupled with the use of quite a sophisticated vocabulary; he rarely uses abbreviations, and always addresses characters by their full names as opposed to nicknames.
