Vampire Mountain (Cirque Du Freak: The Manga #4)
Will a meeting with the Vampire Princes restore Darren's human side, or turn him further toward the darkness? Only one thing is certain-Darren's initiation into the vampire clan is mo ...more
I enjoyed the setting of the Vampire Mountain and the expansion on the vampire lore. It's an interesting and original world, and I'm looking forward to learning more about it.
The books are getting more engrossing with each installment. I love that the author doesn't ape other vampire tales but takes the time to craft a fresh one that's all his own...the author has a rich imagination! :))
Now, what I'm not so crazy about:
1. The extensive number of fight scenes. *yawn* They ...more
Good read but frustrating ending…
So great story, the plot is building, it’s really starting to get good and then, TO BE CONTINUED…
Really? The book is only 212 pages long! I get that the author is writing these for a young audience but we can sit and read a book that’s longer than 200 pages. The Harry Potter series should have proven that. If you’re going to publish a book then make it a complete story for crying out loud. Right now I just feel cheated. If the rest of the series ends up being
One of the things I like best about the Cirque Du Freak series is that the protagonist, Darren Shan (yes, also the author's name...which I thought was a pretty hilarious thing to do, thought I bet his intention was to make it more 'real' for the young adult audience), never has an easy time. Consi ...more

In this book a lot of the adults really bugged me. I feel like they thought that just because Darren Was a kid, that meant he wasn't strong or smart. Like, he can do a lot more than what these people give him credit for. I mean, he did make it al ...more
My favourite bit was when Darren got on with the Wolves and I even gave one of them a name then we got told that vampires And wolves are cousins wow

We’re once again introduced to a new set of characters, all of which you come to love. We’re also given more information about the vampire world, learning even more than we have been given in the last three books. It is here that we really start to see other vampires, coming to understand their lifestyles. Another great book in the series!
This book is way darker than the other ones. We're introduced to a whole new aspect of the vampire world and how the vampire politics works. I absolutely loved the dark tone in this book and I can't wait to read the next 8 books asdjsdgfsdjgjdsfs!
This book was good, do not get me wrong, but it was a filler book. There wasn't anything really happening. It was tense at some points and the ending was suspenseful but as a whole this book was very monotoned in action.
Vampire Mountain was a book that stood out from the previous three books in the series. The first three books were all focused on the hardships of Darren’s life. The books were about how Darren was forced to accept being a vampire. The fourth book suddenly changes the ...more
After flying through the first three books, which were addicting, I had a couple others purchased, but not this one. Since it’s inconceivable to read a series like this out of order, I waited awhile until I could own all to continue it. They’re really that addicting.
Unfortunately this fourth was a small dive down. I’m crushed at first that after taking a break from the series, when I come back they’re immediately leaving the freak show and finding new paths. Change is inevitable, but I’d associa ...more

Six years later (eight years since the initial change), we return to Darren Shan's adventure. This time Crepsley plans on bringing Darren before the Council to see what verdict will be placed due to a child being blooded. Before that though, they have to worry about making their way up the snowy mountain with no help but their own skin (and barefoot). Along the way will prove dangerous, of course, as they run into rabid bears, wolves, and even vampenze!

I should not have made the mistake of choosing a favourite, like I did with Tunnels of Blood, especially since I was only 3 books into the series. I also should have known that the series would only get better, as it has. Vampire Mountain is superb. A perfect blend of story development, character development and a definite darkening of tone. The first three entries read like children's fiction, a ...more
