Hunters of the Dusk (Cirque du Freak #7)
Darren Shan, the Vampire Prince, leaves Vampire Mountain on a life or death mission.
As part of an elite force, Darren searches the world for the Vampaneze Lord. But the road ahead is long and dangerous - and lined with the bodies of the damned.
Another adventure off to a good start.
Prince Darren, along with Larten Crepsley and Harkat Mulds, are sent off on a special mission to hunt the Vampaneze Lord by Mr. Tiny.
I really enjoy Darren as a main character. It will be interesting to see where the other takes things as the story progresses. As with the other stories in the series, the book is well written, and has no ending. I'll have to read the next book in the series to continue the plot started in this book. Which is one of my bigge
Nothing like opening a book in a series and finding out it’s skipped forward…by six years. Yes, six years. Hear me sigh in irritation.
The last book left off with a stunning revelation, but we’ve skipped forward now. Once I got past that annoying development, the story continues to demand my attention.
Darren hasn’t seemed to think or tend to the views of the former traitor he was considering before (peace treaties), and while not enjoying killing, does it with more natural ease when it’s needed. ...more
So Evanna turned out to be a traitor. Kind of. :/
Pretty school character additions. Vancha is pretty badass. Feel bad for him having to battle his brother. But the whole hand to hand is pretty cool. Evanna is awesome too. Her frogs freak me out a bit, but I kinda wish I had some. Oh, and I like her back story. It would be weird being made by Mr. Tiny. Oh, and Mr. Tiny. He's so not my favorite person right now, but... he always brings big news. You know people are going to be scrambling when he's ...more
After being visited by a character from one of the past books, our main characters find themselves at the Cirque once again. Here events are not quite what they once seemed, with questionable motives in the air. Our characters find out that completing the mission that the ...more
Though I found the overall plot of Hunters of the Dusk boring, I’m glad I didn’t have to sit through the six years that Darren ...more
Hunters of the Dusk is the seventh book in Darren Shan’s CIRQUE DU FREAK series. Though Shan always does a nice job of quickly and sufficiently recapping the plot, it’d be best not to start here. Go back and begin with A Living Nightmare. And be warned that this review will contain spoilers for previous books.
It’s been six years since the events of The Vampire Prince. Young Darren Shan is now one of the leaders of t ...more
Expanding on the books before it, “ Hunters of the Dusk” might seem like a good book at first. It has action, as well as a fairly interesting plot. However, the problem in the last book has not been fixed. Darren Shan, a mere, young, half-vampire, is chosen by an agent of De ...more
It was nice to back at the Cirque Du Freak and see how they've changed. I really like how the author used Evra growing up to really show how much time has passed (view spoiler)[ He married with kids!! (hide spoiler)]
The best part of this book was the introduction of Lady ...more
I can connect this book to the world because it shows that once you have someone to guide you, you will be able to accomplish what ever you want to do. In the world there are many people who like to help others with there future.
I rate this book 4 and 1/2 s ...more
Imagine that you have been stuck in a mountain for six years serving as a vampire prince, working with generals to defeat your enemies, the vampaneze. One day, out of the blue, you have been chosen to defeat the vampaneze by taking out their lord. If you don't hunt, you and every vampire in existence will die. If you do, you risk dying, or living to see the world fall apart. Either way, each sides will shed tears an ...more
I can't stop reading unless I finish one book.
last night I stayed up late to finish this book, even though I had to study😅
This series is really really fascinating, magical, interesting, attractive,...
congrats, Mr. Shan!
we do not know who it will claim...
I'm back on the reading wagon! I hadn't realised just how long I'd gone without picking up a book, and it's shameful. Hunters of the Dusk makes that feeling worse by being so darn good. I love the kind of mini-trilogies the series contains; they're fantastic, and help keep the reader invested with the balanced myriad of plots and adventures, foreshadowed with the coming of the 'big plot'. The Vampire Prince's conclusion revealed a future ...more
I’m kind of glad they left vampire mountain. As important as it is to the setting in this world, I like it more when Darren and Crepsley are moving around in the world. And Harkat. Speaking of wh ...more
