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:

"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

Review:

"Fans of the series will enjoy this cliff-hanger and look forward to the next installment." School Library Journal

Review:

"A compelling book....A plot full of twists which leaves the reader hungry for more." J.K. Rowling

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.
