Second book in the Cirque du Freak series.

Darren agreed to become a half-vampire and to work as an assistant to Mr. Crepsley, a vampire, in order to save his friend's life. Basically a nice guy, Darren is revolted by the idea of feeding on human blood. He gradually learns to accept his life as a half-vampire, but draws the line at drinking human blood.

Darren and Mr. Crepsley return to Cirque du Freak after a brief time on their own and Darren is finally able to make some friends. When one of those friends is in danger, just how far will Darren go to keep him alive?

Fast-paced and gory.
