Read in August, 2003

Newly endorsed by J.K. Rowling, this third book in the Cirque du Freak series follows the vampire's assistant Darren Shan and his Master Mr. Crepsley in an adventure under the streets of a nameless city that turns out to be Mr. Crepsley's old stomping grounds. An altercation with an old nemesis follows when Darren's friend and traveling companion Evra the snake boy is kidnapped by a vampanese.

Gorier than the other books, Tunnel of Blood also incorporates a love interest for Darren. Fans of vampire lore will enjoy the debunking of some traditional myths and the creation of new. Darren makes an intriguingly sympathetic half vampire; readers will be pleased to discover the saga continues with a fourth title, especially since there are still loose ends from the first two books. I can't keep these on my library shelves, the entire series is very popular with middle schoolers.
