Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Time seemed to collapse...There was a sharp stabbing sensation in my stomach...Steve crowed, "Now I have you! Now you're gonna die!"

Dead if he loses — damned if he wins. The time has finally come for Darren to face his archenemy, Steve Leopard. One of them will die. The other will become the Lord of the Shadows — and destroy the world.

Is the future written, or can Darren trick destiny?

Review:

"With an ending that brings many surprises, Shan brings his life and series full circle....A fantasy-horror series not to be missed, Cirque du Freak, and especially this volume, ends in a satisfyingly cyclical way." Children's Literature

Review:

"You might think that, at this point, there’s nothing new to find out about the various characters. You would be very wrong! The finale is just as exciting and unexpected as everything that went before it....For young adult readers (and plain old adult readers) who enjoy horror, this is an exceptional series and a great addition to vampire literature." CA Reviews
