"Bad Movie, Great Book!"
5 stars"

Don't let the bad movie adaptation put you off of getting this series! They tried to combine the first three books (which is what is here) into one movie but they missed out all of the good parts! With the books there is more detail about the characters and how they came to be. (there is also a separate series that looks into the life of Larten Crepsley)

Overall a very great read. Would recommend for teens.

"great beginning to a fabulous series!"
5 stars"

WARNING: this book contains blood, spiders, and vampires. But that's why we love it! Darren Shan has to be the master of young-adult horror fiction, and this book, containing the first three volumes of his worldwide phenominon known as The Saga of Darren Shan, is a tried and true testament to his legacy. Such a good read!

"great book loved it"
5 stars"

Once you start reading there's no stopping. Hide yourself in a quiet place and take yourself away to a world full of vampires, the good ones Be beside Darren Shan as he learns all about vampires and never look back. Every thing is about to change.

This is only the beginning. Once you've read this trilogy, make sure you have some pocket money spare because you'll soon want to read them all.

The nightmare begins! Vampire Blood trilogy comprising: Cirque Du Freak, The Vampire's Assistant and Tunnels of Blood. Join Darren Shan's descent into the darkness.

CIRQUE DU FREAK Darren goes to a banned freak show with his best mate Steve. It's the wonderfully gothic Cirque Du Freak where weird, frightening half human/half animals appear who interact terrifyingly with the audience. After he sees the amazing performing spider, Madam Octa, Darren is determined to steal her. But his daring theft goes horribly wrong. The spider bites Steve and Darren has to sell his soul to an evil vampire to get the antidote.

THE VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT Darren joins the vampire, Mr Crepsley, as his assistant and they return to the Cirque Du Freak. There, Darren makes friends with the snake-boy, Evra Von (who knows what Darren is) and a local boy, Sam, and RV, an eco-warrior and animal lover (who do not). Darren begins to enjoy his life among the Cirque performers as the youngest half-vampire in existence, but he defiantly refuses to drink human blood -- the whole idea sickens him -- and he tries desperately to cling on to the part of him which is human.

TUNNELS OF BLOOD When Mr Crepsley is called upon by the Vampire Generals, Darren and the snake-boy, Evra Von, leave the Cirque Du Freak and travel with him to the city. Whilst there, Darren meets Debbie and his life as a Vampire's Assistant fades into the background -- until corpes are found. Corpses drained of blood! Suspicious of Mr Crepsley's secretive bahaviour, Darren and Evra shadow him across the city and confront a creature of the night who may be the end of them all!
