Cirque Du Freak: Saga of Darren Shan #08: Allies of the Nightby Darren Shan
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"The scenario is compelling, and the author mines the exploitative history of early 20th-century sideshows to create an artfully macabre Cirque du Freak." Publishers Weekly
"Fans of the series will enjoy this cliff-hanger and look forward to the next installment." School Library Journal
"A compelling book....A plot full of twists which leaves the reader hungry for more." J.K. Rowling
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.
