Allies of the Night
Darren, Harkat, and Mr. Crepsley (Vancha going back to Vampire Mountain to inform the other Princes and Generals of their encounter with the Vampaneze Lord) go to Mr. Crepsley's hometown once again to investigate if the Vampaneze had set up territories there.
But soon after their arrival Darren is discovered by the police and forced to attend school. He has trouble with most of his subjects as he only has a middle school education, but luckily ...more
The hunt for the Vampaneze Lord continues.
Darren and his team of Vampaneze hunters return to Larten Crepsley's home town when they learn that murder victims with all the blood drained from them are piling up. Suddenly, an inspector shows up at their hotel wondering why, after they had enrolled Darren in school, he is not attending and that if he does not begin at once the police would have to get involved. So not only does Darren have to hunt vampaneze, he's got to finish his homework firs
The last few books were so mentally and physically grueling Darren that I couldn't wait for book 8. I was tired of reading what this poor kid got up to. Finally, some lighthearted adventures.
This one has a somewhat similar feel for Tunnels of Blood - a bit of mystery, a bit of whodunit combined with Darren (the character, not the writer) having to deal with (dun dun dunnnn) high school.
I honestly wish more of the series had this feel ...more
Let’s be real: the plot is being drawn out and spread too thin. The whole vampire/vampaneze war is interesting. So is the quest to find and kill the Lord of the Vam ...more
Darren Shan, Mr. Crepsley, and Harket Mulds travel to Crepsely's home town where they hope to find the Lord of the Vampaneze. To their surprise, they learn that Darren has been enrolled at some prep school. Sensing a trap, they decide to spring it by having Darren attend. While there, he discovers that his teacher is none other than Debbie Hemlock, his girlfriend from the third book, who is all grown up now. This isn't the only blast from the past, howeve ...more
Continuing on with their mission against the Vampaneze, more twists occur which leave you wanting more. Another action packed book in the series, leaving you on the edge of your seat and unable to put the book down.
Whilst the ...more
This one focuses more on a mystery of who lied to the school and forced Darren to school, and which Vampaneze is attacking people again.
We get to revisit the character of Debbie, who I really enjoyed in her first appearance in the third book. This time, she's quite a bit older and is actually Darren's teacher!! But he is quite ...more
Overall a strong volume with some twists that I did see coming, and others I didn't. This series has exceeded my expectations. ...more
This was one of my two least favorite books in the series. While it tried to return to the old theme of not fitting in while keeping the fee ...more
However, as it managed to progress the story line, ill be the first to admit that it worked, not as exciting as a vampire prince travelling the world and seeing new things but given how the story line panne ...more
I think it is a great fantasy book.
I recommend it. I also recommend the other parts of the series.
