Hunters of the Dusk (Cirque du Freak #7)
My name's Darren Shan. I'm a half-vampire."
Darren Shan leaves Vampire Mountain as part of an elite force on a life-and-death mission to find the newly-risen Vampaneze Lord, who is set to lead the vampaneze into war against the v ...more
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
With each installment, this series keeps getting better. The vampire lore spun by the author is fresh and original...and getting very intricate and complicated. I really like the world-building. It's believable and always has a new facet for the reader to explore. (It's pure fantasy, but also believable, and that's a tough line to walk!)
I can't recommend this series enough. It's a great read, especially for kids (ages 12+).
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
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
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
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
when I read this book I think about how appearences can really change how someone thinks about someone, like evanna when darren first meets her he thinks she is a witch because of how she looks but she is actually a very nice person.people all the time worry about how they look, when someone looks at you and classifies you on how you look because thats the only part of you that they will be able to see. if you are ugly then people will pr ...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
I was pleasantly surprised that a) the plot is easy enough to pick up at this point without having read the 6 previous books and b) that I quite enjoyed it despite being a bit fed up with the vampire genre.
This is aimed at ...more
I have to say, this series was not about what I thought it was. I was expecting books set in and around and with the circus. I was not expecting prophesies and epic questing to stop the killer vampires from destroying the good vampires.
Not what I'm interested in reading, but I'm sure they will be appreciated by someone else.
My love of reading star ...more

I just couldn't put the book away!
