I'm disappointed in the very anti-climactic way this book ended. Although the title doesn't bury the lead (the boy does indeed kill demons) it was not until the final few chapters; and even then I was expecting an EPIC battle! Out of the supposed 40-some demons that the protagonist knew of, he was only able to kill a fraction of that, and only one or two were written about in detail. The backstory about him and Sally made no sense and you learn that the demons could easily relocate to another city and start over again.

The book jacket boasts that Stephen King fans will love this story. I think Stephen King fans will yawn.
