it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** Darrren Shan is now Mr Crepsley's assistant and they head of to the Cirque Du Freak.Darren is still not drinking blood which is making him weaker, but plans on never drinking human blood.Even though Mr. Crepsley says, that he needs human blood in order to live.Darren tries to forget and live his life as normally as possible at the circus.There Darren becomes friends with Evra, a snake boy.They also meet a boy named, Sam and a guy named, R.V. and they start to talk about the circus.Darren and Evra decide to get them tickets to see the show.R.V. doesn't like how they treat the wolf man a freak in the circus.On the night of the show R.V. decides to free the wolf man but the wolf man cuts off R.V.'s arms.Then the wolf man spots Sam and chaces after him, jumping right over Darren.Darren tries to run after them and defend Sam but is now to weak, because of his lack of blood.As a result Darren was unsuccessful at saving Sam and when the wolf man is about to finish Darren off, Mr crepsley comes and saves him.Mr. Crepsley tells Darren to drink Sam's blood, so that a part of Sam's spirit can live in first Darren rejects the offer but finally agrees.

The things that caught my attention in this book was how determined Darren was to not drink blood even though it could have cost him his life.When he finally did drink Sam's blood I found that also interesting, because he would go back on his choice in order to save a a part of Sam and this would finallly allow him to start to drink human blood.
