Trials of Death (Cirque du Freak #5)

Another frustrating TO BE CONTINUED...
Someone needs to explain to me why I paid $8 for a book that didn't have an ending to it. Honestly, it didn't have a beginning either because that was in book 4 Vampire Mountain. It's just the next installment in one long book you have to read one part at a time. I bitched about this when I reviewed Vampire Mountain. Maybe it's just me but when I pay for a novel I think it should be a full NOVEL with a beginning, middle and an end. Isn't that what I paid f
HOW THE HELL CAN A BOOK END WITH SUCH A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE CLIFFHANGER OH MY GOD JESUS LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL AND EVERYTHING NO NO NO NO
I AM A MESS RIGHT NOW!
I went back and forth with being disgusted by the storyline and riveted at the same time. Yes, it was a weird experience.
‘Trials of Death’ wasn’t filler-ish, better than the fourth because the pacing and almost non-stop action made it hard to put down. Action scenes were excellent, nail-grinding, detailed, spaced right. Some disturbing stuff happened during the trails, especially the weird flame stuff.
Characters are more fleshed out, seeming livelier and not imitations of their former selves (t ...more
I've noticed that Shan tends to end his books with a big TO BE CONTINUED ... but there's a difference between ending the book with a bit of a cliff hanger...versus literally stopping in the middle of a story. This is a case of the latter.
In this novel, we find Darren competing in the Vampire Trials. Either he manages to prove himself worthy of becoming a full vampire or his life will be cut extremely short.

Nakonec se mi to líbilo ještě více než předchozí díly. Hezky to uteklo a zkoušky byly fakt vymakaný nápad. Bohužel ten konec... Ach! To mi Shan neměl dělat...
When we last left Darren, he was told that he would have to complete five deadly trials to prove himself a worthy vampire. Not only are the trials themselves deadly, but if Darren fails in any way besides death, he will be executed. It is actually after one of these trials that Darren learns about a treacherous plot that involves the vampaneze.
This book was filled with action and kept me turning the page (especially near the end). Darren's trials were interesting and even t ...more

I was kind of bored during the first half of the book. I have read several books with trials a lot like these, so I thought that this was going to be one of the more predictable books in the series (Darren almost dies a few times but in the end he will probably succeeds in the trials, then i can move on to ...more

Failure isn't an option...
That was awesome; Trials of Death, is awesome! As I progress, each new entry pushes its predecessor out of the way to become my favourite. Spine-tingling action balanced with a fantastic plot and a cast of characters who are unique and utterly encapsulating. Trials of Death does a helluva lot: a stellar story which pushes forward an overarching plot; cast development that deepens the depth of already nicely fleshed ch ...more

In this book, Darren must face five horrific trials by order of the Vampire Council to see if he is worthy enough to join them. If not, he will die - if the trials don't kill him first.
This was a brilliant book! Shan's writing flows so perfectly, it's hard not to be dragged into the story. His words kept me hooked on every single page, and I could not stop turning the pages until I had no more to read. The desc ...more
The book overall was amazing. It included so much action that I could barely stop myself from reading it. Each chapter just made the reader wonder more and more if Darren would be able to survive the trials. As the reader continues the book ...more
