MY thought, was really this
okay, so this RANDOM AS HELL charictar kinda just seems to show up and i forget who this guy is- i don't remember him from the other books
(he is most likely some charictar who was really importent from the before hand in eather the first, second or third book and have no idea.
im kinda stupid when it comes to charictar that only showed up in the first or second books of a series. deal with it) A

This book is very interesting because I love how Darren and his friends work together to overcome the problems that they were having trouble dealing with. I also loved how Darren's friends helped Darren to deal with the enemies that they have trouble fighting. My favorite part is when his best friend from school as known as Steve Leopard saved Darren from one of the vampaneze. Which were the bad guys, my favorite part is when Debbie Hemlock which is Darren's girlfriend helped Darren catching up ...more

Liking the art more as the series goes on. I wasn't sure about it at first, but its good. Not great but good.
This book is about Darren Shan going to Mr. Crepsleys's home town once again to hunt down vampaneze. Strangely the principal of a high school says that Darren hasn't been to school in a long time so he has to come back to school, and one of his teachers is his old girlfriend. At night Mr. Crepsley and Darren hunt down vampaneze. When they are hunting them down they find out that R.V. is now a vampaneze!!!(R.V. is from book 2.)I would recommend this book to all boys and girls that like vampires a ...more

there were certain parts in the book that i felt like Takahiro Arai did great in to fully add dramatic effect, however the way he portrayed two certain characters i have problems with. first is Darrens estranged girlfriend Debbie. I do not have a real problem with her skin color (in the original book she was described to have dark skin) but i am confused to which why the author decided to make her the same skin color of Darren. my second problem is Steve to which i feel is a bigger problem. i fe ...more

I just got this app but I'm actually unsure of how to work it, if someone could give me some tips that's would be great
After putting the series down after a while, I found it surprisingly easy to get back into it. Some of the details were foggy (who is this "x" character you speak of?) but it didn't hinder me so much.

This volume was cute. A bit cheesy, but cute. Okay, describing a "Cirque du Freak" book as cute is wrong on all levels. But the romance in this volume was so hard to ignore and me being a girl, that's what I remember the most from this. Although, it's as action packed as it usually is! Just... Chees
The story started shaky at first. Darren, Larten and Harakat went back to larten's hometown after crimes of sucked blood spread out. So they went to a hotel and someone knocked and said that they got all Darren Shan papers and he's prepared to go to school..... When that happened I was like OH SNAP.
But the story evolves in every chapter and many characters that we missed came back again (that's the best part) unlike the 7th this book had to be continue ending just like the other books.

Really good, some old characters came back. Was a nice story in the middle, then fights at the end. Can't wait to read next one!
