Allies of the Night (Cirque Du Freak #8)
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
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
It has been 20 years since Darren joined the vampires. He’s in a town called Mahler’s, it is his teachers home town ever since he was born. It is a quiet town that’s off the map with not very many people. But has a history with terrible things that go bump in the night.
He has to face many old friend/enemies. And he has to have the life of his friends and the life of his girlfriend(external). And on...more
I think it is a great fantasy book.
I recommend it. I also recommend the other parts of the series.
The book in itself is a good read, the entire series so far is great. I gave it a four because it is good andim being unbias. If i was to be bias I would give it a 3. Like Vampire mountain it goes into story building so not much happens and there is a lot of explaining to move on the story and a lot of unwanted explainign of things that happened in earlier books, which were also explained then. So it gre...more

For the first time, the difference in Darren’s age and his appearance catch up with him. By this time he’s actually about twenty-eight years old, but he only looks about fifteen. The strange thing is, I don’t notice any difference in his narration between twenty-eight year-old self and his f...more
I can relate myself to Darren. There is a lot going on in Darren's life. Its hard to think about school when his enemies could be trying to kill him. For me, it is tough to g...more
tapi kalo bisa membandingkan dengan buku serial yang lain, semisal buku trudi cannavan ato harpot ato bahkan bukunya kho ping ho (1 seri bisa 6-8 buku saku. yang saya maksud seri yg berbeda) rasanya jauh banget. Maksudnya, buku-buku tersebut tidak saya baca urut tapi feel bahwa buku yang saya baca tersebut punya crita yang bisa dibaca...more

Some points I'd like to make:
1. Harkat Mulds is by far my favorite character. He had been wise (compared to the often-reckless-in-decisi...more
