Vampire Blood Trilogy (Saga of Darren Shan)
Ahhh my childhood, Darren Shan is the gasoline to a newly bought chainsaw, with blood guts and gore on one side and compelling, grips of nature in which us readers call the story the other.
The series is a fascinating read with immediately recognisable characters which are thought of with respect, hatred or passion just as Darren plays them to you.
If he wants you to imagine the skin of the vampaneze with it's purple pools and potholes he takes you there and forces you to breath it in. He's got bucketloads of talent and creates a cracking story bordering on immense and never falling short of epic.
Buy it and relish in a series which will last you a lifetime, while not in reading material (unless it takes you your entire life to read 12 books) most definately in memories. This is a series you will definately read over and over again throughout the years of your life.
Adult or not BUY THIS and I won't need to ask you twice to buy the rest...
