Allies of the Night (Cirque du Freak #8)
The hunt for the Vampaneze Lord continues.
Darren and his team of Vampaneze hunters return to Larten Crepsley's home town when they learn that murder victims with all the blood drained from them are piling up. Suddenly, an inspector shows up at their hotel wondering why, after they had enrolled Darren in school, he is not attending and that if he does not begin at once the police would have to get involved. So not only does Darren have to hunt vampaneze, he's got to finish his homework first. T
I'm also really irritated with how all plot holes get plugged by "Mr. Tiny did that. God knows why he did it. He just did ... because he is destiny and he can." I realize that world-building on such a large scale must make for complex plots, which are hard to hand ...more
حقیقتاً مشخصه ک ارباب کیه. یه مشت خر دور هم جمع شدن:|

از پیشگفتار های دارن خوشم نمیاد

Let’s be real: the plot is being drawn out and spread too thin. The whole vampire/vampaneze war is interesting. So is the quest to find and kill the Lord of the Vam ...more
Continuing on with their mission against the Vampaneze, more twists occur which leave you wanting more. Another action packed book in the series, leaving you on the edge of your seat and unable to put the book down.
I have to say that this book was kind of disappointing. It was too much like all of the other stories in the series, and to tell the truth, I think it's getting too repetitive. As always, there's evil Vampanese and Darren the Vampire has to defeat them to save the day, as usual. This series seems to just go on and on and on without any point after a while.
I can't say I don't like the writing style though. I love the way Darren Shan (the author) writes about his characters and the way t ...more
This was one of my two least favorite books in the series. While it tried to return to the old theme of not fitting in while keeping the fee ...more
Darren Shan, Mr. Crepsley, and Harket Mulds travel to Crepsely's home town where they hope to find the Lord of the Vampaneze. To their surprise, they learn that Darren has been enrolled at some prep school. Sensing a trap, they decide to spring it by having Darren attend. While there, he discovers that his teacher is none other than Debbie Hemlock, his girlfriend from the third book, who is all grown up now. This isn't the only blast from the past, howeve ...more
So we learn who the Lord of the Vampaneze is, but that's pretty much all. :/
I just don't think anything happened in most of this book. Darren wasted so much time in school. What was the point of that, even? Who cares? He's in the middle of a war for his species! He's their prince! And he has to sit through school? What? That's just dumb. And Debbie. Groan. I never liked her. She's a waste of time. And she just butted into their attack then ruined it for them because she was too weak. Never going ...more
However, as it managed to progress the story line, ill be the first to admit that it worked, not as exciting as a vampire prince travelling the world and seeing new things but given how the story line panne ...more
I think it is a great fantasy book.
I recommend it. I also recommend the other parts of the series.
Imagine you are a vampire, and you can't give your true identity to anyone. Now add school on top of that, in which you don't know a single thing anyone is talking about. You haven't been to school in 13 years! Everyone is making fun of you because you are weird. But that is just the start of it, you are in a cold-blooded with evil vampires known only as, the Vampaneze! You are on the search for one known as the Vampaneze Lord. There is only a lim ...more
Allies of the Night is full of twists, turns, doubt and confusion; all blended together to make a phenomenal imagination soup. It's also the entry of reunions, and trust me, they're awesome! The blurb came at me from the side. Darren, back at school? It filled me with both anticipation, and hesitation. The latter because plunging the story back into a normalised setting could slow down the pace, and the former because, if it works, it could be a cutting contrast ...more
Jadi, kayaknya aku bakal melanggar niat buat baca box 3 Darren Shan akhir taun depan aja. Aku menikmati baca seri ini, tapi nggak segitu ngebetnya buat tau akhir cerita. Box 1 (buku #1-#4) aku baca akhir tahun lalu, dan box 2 (#5-#8) akhir tahun ini. Sebenernya novel ini enak banget ya buat menuh-menuhin reading challenge kalo lagi ketinggalan banyak di akhir tahun *licik* tapi ternyata aku nyerah deh. Ending Allies of the Night ini ngegan ...more
But I still continued to the next book, and as am I said, still greatly entertained.
