Tunnels of Blood
Darren and Evra the Snakeboy join Mr. Crepsley (Darren's guardian/vampire sire) as he tries to suss out who is going on a murder-spree in town. We are introduced to the Vampaneze - semi-evil vampires (they are only semi-evil based on their philosophy on killing humans).
Note series is geared towards boys - action, adventure, blood, guts and gore. Which, I found equally enjoyable when I was a middle school girl first reading this series. However, during my rerea ...more
Tunnels of Blood is the third novel of twelve in The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan. In this book, the history of the vampires is explained to a small bit, and introduces the clan of the Vampaneze, which will become one of the major focuses of the story. This is also the final book of the Vampire Blood trilogy and where Darren's loyalty and trust in Mr. Crepsley is put to the test.

The best in the series so far.
If you're a teenager and you haven't read these books you really should. There are no sparkling vampires, no boys and girls staring at each other across the school cafeteria. It’s just a book about blood sucking vampires. Just the way it should be!
To read my review of the other books in this series, use the links below:
Book One: A Living Nightmare
Book Two: The Vampire's Assistant
Book Four: Vampire Mountain
Book Five: Trials of Death
Book Six: The Vampire
This one was written better (slightly), not as predictable, and all around more interesting. I'm pleased.
Seriously though, this is the third book in the Saga Of Darren Shan and I absolutely LOVE these books. They are so fast-paced and so entertaining. I could not put this book down. Amazing plot, amazing characters (Mr Crepsley and Evra are so amazing just ahdshfsdghdsdasja) and amazingly written. Fans of the Percy Jackson series need to read these books NOW!
When I compare this series to Demonata, I can see while both of them have so many flaws, Demonata was so much better than this one. It had a solid story behind all the books and each character had a single book devoted to him/her so I could actually feel something for them when one of them died.
The story goes on so slowly whil ...more
Era verdad lo que decían, la obra se va poniendo mejor a medida que avanza la saga.
Darren nuestro protagonista, el chico semi-vampiro conoce a Debbie, una chica humana de la que se enamora y la historia da un giro bastante interesante, en donde Shan (el autor) se muestra un poco más generoso para con sus lectores que buscan conocer algunos detalles plus de los protagonistas.
Tengo que admitir algo, antes que nada…

About a year and a half has passed since Darren's last adventure. This time a Vampire General has made contact with Mr. Crepsley. After the meeting, Crepsley, Darren, and Evra leave the Cirque. In the city they inhabit, Crepsley ends up going off by himself at night without explanation. Evra and Darren think nothing of this until they see the news: six bodies have been found drained of their blood. So the two boys start to follow Crepsley to whether he is the villain.

Měním názor. Krvavé chodby jsou rozhodně lepší než takový Upírův pomocník. Debbie sice nesnáším, ale Sam je na tom u mě o fous hůř. Murlough je nepochopený génius a Evru bych si z fleku vzala (promiň, Kurdo, jsi až v dalším díle). A GAVNER!!!
Jeden ze slabších dílů série - Murlough je sice skvělý a chytrý chlapec, no ne, ale oproti ostatním tomu maličko chybělo. Asi se už moc těším na Upíří horu. Evruška byl roztomilý jako obvykle a to jeho mučení se mi moc nelíbilo :/ A Debbi ...more
Darren e Mr. Crepsley hanno fatto del Cirque du Freak la loro casa, per il momento. Tutto scorre normalmente: Darren ed Evra danno mangiare la Piccolo Popolo, ci sono vari spettacoli, Mr. Crepsley addestra Darren alla vie dei Vampiri... Ma quando un Generale dei Vampiri viene a parlare con Mr. Crepsley, lui e Darren sono costretti a lasciare il circo e viaggiare. Darren non sa di cosa si tratta, ma è determinato a scoprirlo.
Questo terzo libro è, a mio parere, un po' al di ...more

Darren is starting to get used to life as a half-vampire and spending his time with Mr Crepsley and the Cirque, but something comes up that draws them away from the troupe and back into a busy city. Once there Mr Crepsley starts to disappear more often and Darren wants to know why, then there is news of human killings and he starts to worry about Crepsley's movements.

It's hard for me to find certain books in English that I can enjoy with my current skills because my reading skills are not the same as my reading abilities in Japanese. So, when I found the book series, I was very happy. The books are written for children, but yo ...more

We move forward again, on from the Cirque and into the city. Here Darren continues to grow as a character and the evil within the series is really uncovered. A lot is found out or hinted at about the characters and the book universe meaning you will be picking up the next book in next to no time at all to see exactly what happens next.
