Nat has a very special ability; he is one of a very few individuals who can actually see demons. Of course most of the demons aren't made up of pure evil; they are simply very mischievous. Orphaned at the age of 12, Nat was rescued from the foster system by his demon keeper mentor, Dhaliwahl. Dhaliwahl trained Nat in the art of keeping demons and keeping humans safe from demons. Demons are meant to be kept, not destroyed! But now Dhalwahl has disappeared and it’s up to Nat and his minions (isn’t it great to be able to use the word minion in the literal sense?) to rescue the world from the worst demon of all, the Beast, which has managed to escape from the basement of Nat’s demon house.
Nat gets helps along the way from his potential love interest/junior assistant librarian, Sandy, and a runaway named Richie. Boys will really love the crazy antics of the gross and ridiculous demons. The ick factor is certainly high with fish guts, slime, blood and gore prevalent throughout the story. Demon Keeper is a fun, lighthearted read with definite potential for sequels!
