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