"I read Cirque Du Freak last week. I loved it. I love the way you manage to juggle the funny with the unpleasant, the affection with the hurt. It's
great story-telling."

Format: Paperback
'' According to the mysterious and powerful Mr. Tiny, only three vampires stood a chance of stopping the Vampeneze Lord. They were the Prince, Vancha March, Larten Crepsly, and a half-vampire-me-Darren Shan." Vancha March is a vampire who had been living in the wild for a very long time and is a vampire Prince. Darren Shan is a half-vampire and also is a vampire Prince. Larten Crepsly is a full-vampire and was the one who had blooded Darren first making Darren a half-vampire. Larten and Darren are so close together, you call them "father & son." The three vampires are on a quest to vanquish the Vampire Lord to win the War of the Scors. The vampires are enemies of the Vampeneze. (The vampires only feed on a little bit of blood, but the Vampeneze suck the victim dry. In this action, the Vampeneze are really killing when they feed.) Only these three vampires may help. A school inspector came to their hotel one day and said Darren should be in school. Since Darren has very little experience in English, math, and science, he agrees to have a private tutor, Debbie. One night when Darren was walking home from his tutoring session, a Vampeneze attacked Darren! Darren is weaponless! What will happen to Darren Shan? Read this book to find out.
My favorite part of the story is when Darren took on a big bully all by himself. Darren just picked him up by the collar. The bully's voice got all shaky. Darren wasn't doing it for fun, he had to save a kid named Richard from being killed by the Vampeneze. A girl next to Darren, Tara, already got killed. Even though Darren is a half-vampire, he still has a kind heart. In book 1, "Cirque de Freak," Darren gives up his humanity and becomes a half-vampire just to save a poisoned friend, Steve Leonard from dying.

I bought this book for my boyfriends 12 year old son and he hasn't put it down. Darren Shan is a fantastic author and I would recommend these books for any young teens.

My boyfriends son is not normally a good reader but cant seem to put these books down.

Format: Paperback
Darren Shan, half-vampire and Vampire prince, continues his quest to hunt down and kill the vampaneze Lord. Darren and the Allies journey to Mr Cresley's home town after they hear about a series of killings sounding all too familiar; humans drained of blood!
This book is written in a similiar style to the first trilogy with all of the excitment and suspense, and more. However, because there are many old faces from the first three books, it is probably not a good idea to read this book without reading the preceding books in the series first, as you will not experience the pleasure of coming across some of Darren's old friends (and enemies) once again. Allies is a fantastic read for anyone who has read the other Shan books and also a fine read for anyone who loves action,suspense and most importantly Vampires!It starts with a huge twist and ends with another,and the cliffhanger at the end is sure to leave you biting your nails until the next book comes out. Roll on book 9!

When I read the synopsis of this book I groaned a little, in the middle of a vampire war, Shan is sent to school? Surely not, but I'm so far into this series I did not want to give up, so I put my hesitations to one side and dived in. And I'm glad I did because it actually works quite well, it opens the way for some old characters to make a re-appearance.

As dead bodies keep turning up in Crepsley's old home town, the group head back there to try and catch the Vampaneze responsible but they run into bigger trouble than they imagined.

Since the first book I have waited for Steve Leopard to turn up again, each time a 'familiar' face was spotted throughout the series I always wondered if it would be him, and finally this time it was. And it's good! Not what I expected but I liked the way he was re-introduced and the following events were awesome.

We also see Debbie, Darren's first girlfriend re-appear, obviously older and hopefully wiser but she plays a big part which was fun and not what I expected.

This book had quite a lot of surprises in it and I read it so fast, I couldn't wait to know what happened.

The series just keeps getting better and better. I <3 Darren Shan!

Darren Shan is a wonderful author. With each new book he publishes a whole new story of courage, excitement, and enjoyment. Each Cirque Du Freak book is wonderful, and keeps you reading and guessing till the very end. Allies of the Night is no different. I will not spoil the story by telling what it is about, because I could reveal too much. Lets just say there might be a surprise character... For a first time buyer of this series, you must have this book. You must have read all the other books too, or you might get a bit lost. So lose yourself in the world of Darren Shan's Cirque Du Freak, Allies of the Night specifically, and let it brighten your day.

As you all know, I am th famous Italian-Canadian gamecube game critic. But I also love to read. This series I thought I woulldn't like, but I did love it, and still do. The thing about this author ( Darren Shan) is that he makes vampires seem so real. If this series was not so well written,it would be a terrible series. The storie is told from Darren Shans view, for most of the series he is a young half-vampire. He tells about his life as a vampire. How he has to keep moving around with the Cirque du Freak and his mentor, Mr. Crepsely. In my expert opinion this is one of my favorite series of books next to A Series of Unfortunate Events, Lemony Snicket, and Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer.
