Page Turners: The Demon's Watch

I am currently reading:
The Demon's Watch by Conrad Mason
My copy has the proof cover so I don't get to look at this version which makes me a little sad. It certainly gives the impression that it's going to be an exciting "tale of magic and skulduggery" doesn't it? I'm not very far into it but so far The Demon's Watch has proven to be pretty cool and I can imagine that most small boys, and lots of small girls, would adore it. Within the first few pages we have goblins, ogres, pirates, lots of shady grog swilling characters and a fight. Fantastic! Grubb, the main character, is also instantly likely and I really want him to succeed in everything he does. So I'm looking forward to finding out!

From Amazon:
'We're the Demon's Watch, son. Protectors of Port Fayt. Scourge of all sea scum. Don't tell me you've never heard of us?'
Half-goblin boy Joseph Grubb lives in Fayt, a bustling trading port where elves, trolls, fairies and humans live side by side. Fed up of working at the Legless Mermaid tavern, Grubb dreams of escape - until a whirlwind encounter with a smuggler plunges him into Fayt's criminal underworld. There he meets the Demon's Watch and learns of their mission to save the port from a mysterious and deadly threat. Can Grubb and his new allies uncover the dark plot in time, or will they end up as fish food in Harry's Shark Pit?
