Following the massive success that began with Cirque du Freak, Darren Shan is back where it all started - telling the life story of the vampire Larten Crepsley. For every vampire, the end ...is just the beginning. When terrible events force young Larten Crepsley to flee his home he finds himself alone in the world. Then he meets the mysterious Seba Nile, who introduces him to the ways of the vampire clan. But will Larten turn his back on humanity and join a world from which there can be no return? So begins the blood-soaked tale of a vampire who starts out a nobody - but will change the world forever...'Cirque Du Freak is a thrill ride that will keep even the most reluctant readers turning pages'. Amazon (US) 'The gripping plot moves forward at a lightning pace, and Darren's fascination with the grotesque will ring true for many'. Booklist '...compelling...[T]he author mines the exploitative history of early 20th century sideshows to create an artfully macabre cirque du freak.' Publishers Weekly 'Entertaining story', writes The Examiner.
