Tunnels of Blood (Cirque du Freak #3)
More lists with this book...
The best in the series so far.
If you're a teenager and you haven't read these books you really should. There are no sparkling vampires, no boys and girls staring at each other across the school cafeteria. It’s just a book about blood sucking vampires. Just the way it should be!

Book Five: Trials of Death

What gets annoying with most vampire-based novels/series is the lack of originality, the repetition of the same few facts over and over again (cough cough...Anita Blake...cough!), and the unnecessary long-windedness of the story. But this ...more
About a year and a half has passed since Darren's last adventure. This time a Vampire General has made contact with Mr. Crepsley. After the meeting, Crepsley, Darren, and Evra leave the Cirque. In the city they inhabit, Crepsley ends up going off by himself at night without explanation. Evra and Darren think nothing of this until they see the news: six bodies have been found drained of their blood. So the two boys start to follow Crepsley to whether he is the villain.

Seriously though, this is the third book in the Saga Of Darren Shan and I absolutely LOVE these books. They are so fast-paced and so entertaining. I could not put this book down. Amazing plot, amazing characters (Mr Crepsley and Evra are so amazing just ahdshfsdghdsdasja) and amazingly written. Fans of the Percy Jackson series need to read these books NOW!
When I compare this series to Demonata, I can see while both of them have so many flaws, Demonata was so much better than this one. It had a solid story behind all the books and each character had a single book devoted to him/her so I could actually feel something for them when one of them died.
The story goes on so slowly whil ...more
Era verdad lo que decían, la obra se va poniendo mejor a medida que avanza la saga.
Darren nuestro protagonista, el chico semi-vampiro conoce a Debbie, una chica humana de la que se enamora y la historia da un giro bastante interesante, en donde Shan (el autor) se muestra un poco más generoso para con sus lectores que buscan conocer algunos detalles plus de los protagonistas.
Tengo que admitir algo, antes que nada…

Exposition (4-6 sentences)
Darren has to go on an adventure with Mr. Crepsley. Mr Crepsley has business to do in a small town. Darren did not want to go because he did not want to leave the circus and his best friend Evra, the Snake Boy. Mr. Crepsley said that Evra can come to accompany Darren. Darren was so excited he went to ask Evra. Evra wanted to go, but he had ...more

Darren is starting to get used to life as a half-vampire and spending his time with Mr Crepsley and the Cirque, but something comes up that draws them away from the troupe and back into a busy city. Once there Mr Crepsley starts to disappear more often and Darren wants to know why, then there is news of human killings and he starts to worry about Crepsley's movements. With Evra the snake boys ...more
First of all I adore Debbie and I'm said it ended like it did, but they're so CUTE! OMG I WANT MORE! (and that wish is sorta granted but MORE OF THAT LATER) Seriously, I sh ...more
It's hard for me to find certain books in English that I can enjoy with my current skills because my reading skills are not the same as my reading abilities in Japanese. So, when I found the book series, I was very happy. The books are written for children, but yo ...more
Gorier than the other books, Tunnel of Blood also incorporates a love interest for Darren. Fans of vampi ...more
This book takes us away from Cirque Du Freak to the city. Snake boy comes along for the ride and keeps Darren company during the day. We meet the vampaneze and Darren gets himself a girlfriend. Not very wise as she is human and we know what happened last time!
I can see why this series is so popular and I can't wait to read the rest of them!
We move forward again, on from the Cirque and into the city. Here Darren continues to grow as a character and the evil within the series is really uncovered. A lot is found out or hinted at about the characters and the book universe meaning you will be picking up the next book in next to no time at all to see exactly what happens next.
One night, Darren and Evra are disturbed by a news report saying that human bodies were found in a basement, drained of blood. Darren and Evra fear that it may be Mr. Crepsley, and de ...more
