Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Darren Shan, Vampire Prince and "vampaneze" killer, faces his worst nightmare yet — school. But homework is the least of Darren's problems. Bodies are piling up. Time is running out. And the past is catching up with the hunters fast.

Review:

"An unresolved ending will leave readers begging for more. The gripping plot moves forward at a lightning pace, and Darren's fascination with the grotesque will ring true for many." Booklist

Review:

"Darren is a likable hero, but other characters are not well developed. Gory fight and murder scenes and some profanity are included, but are in keeping with the story line. Fans of the series will enjoy this cliff-hanger and look forward to the next installment." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Vampire prince and "vampaneze" killer Darren Shan faces his worst nightmare yet — school — but homework is the least of Darren's problems. Bodies are piling up. Time is running out, and the past is catching up with the hunters fast.

Synopsis:

Algebra class, two old friends, and a creature with deadly hands test Darren's determination as he travels to Mr. Crepsley's home town to search for the murderous vampaneze.

About the Author
