Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Trials: seventeen ways to die unless the luck of the vampires is with you. Darren Shan must pass five fearsome Trials to prove himself to the vampire clan — or face the stakes in the Hall of Death. But Vampire Mountain holds hidden threats. Sinister, potent forces are gathering in the darkness. In this nightmarish world of bloodshed and betrayal, death may be a blessing.

Review:

"Darren begins to grow a bit as a person...making this book as interesting to read as the first installment....This series, although grisly in detail, is still appropriate for the younger fans of the vampire genre." Teri Lesesne, VOYA

Review:

"Characters are mostly one-dimensional, and the plot plods along until the final conflict heats up the action. Although the story stands on its own, there isn't much reason to read this one aside from following the series." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Now in mass market paperback — the fifth installment of the bestselling horror series featuring Darren Shan, the Vampire Prince, who's on a life-or-death mission.

About the Author

Darren Shan grew up watching old Dracula movies and reading spooky comics, which were the inspirations for this series.
