Cirque Du Freak #4: Vampire Mountain: Book 4 in the Saga of Darren Shan
You have been warned. I know, I was pretty devastated too...
It's not a bad book. Darren has settled into vampire life somewhat well but upon summons by the Vampire Council, both he and Mr. Crepsley have to trek to Vampire Mountain to plead their case.
Throughout the book, we are given snitches and tidbits of what vampire society is like - harsh, cruel and noble. The author has no qualms about depicting gruesome detail ...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.

Not to mention a terribly sexist remark at one point: "There aren't many vampire women because we can't have children" Obviously, when a w ...more
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! ...more
