Praise for the Larten Crepsley Series:
“His writing is slick, his dialogue sharp and clever, his plotting immaculate. His books ooze with the kind of creepy, dark atmosphere and powerful characters that young teenage readers lap up. Shan is honing his craft with every book, and I look forward to the next gore-fest with relish.”
“Forget Stephen King, this author's the master of scaring children.”
The Big Issue in Scotland
“A tantalising start to the series and a must-read for Darren Shan fans.”

That is, until this book: "Brothers to the Death", the conclusion to Larten Crepsley's life before he met Darren Shan.
Unlike the previous three books, this book has a very strong continuing theme. I won't spoil what that theme is, because it is one of the turning points in the story and in Larten's life, but it gives the story a stronger and more appealing motive. Larten's motive-driven intentions lead him through this final part of the series, meaning that this story has less of the "wandering" that was prevalent in the previous.
Even for Darren Shan, the quality of writing style is excellent. I have always enjoyed the way that Mr. Shan writes, and I can't deny that this is certainly some of his best work. Even though the book is written in third person, you get fantastic insight into each characters thoughts, and each character's way of thinking is unique. Rather than letting the third person narrative restrict his ability to explain emotion, Darren uses it as an opportunity to lock-on to each character and "zoom in" on their thoughts. It's a fantastic way of writing that gives the story a great level of depth.Read more ›
Certainly a series not to be missed.All 4 are unputdownable.
I did wondered what happened to Larten at the end of Brothers to Death, but then I remembered he rejoined Cirque du Freak yet again, with his giant
spider Madame Orca and made Darren Shan his assistant.
So far have enjoyed all Darrens books, and believe or not, have just started the Demonata series.
Will give my review on them when I have read all ten. So far Lord Los has gained all my attention.
This in my opinion is the best book out of the four but also the saddest as it's the last. Let's hope Darren Shan's future series ZOM-B will be almost as good as this Saga and the Darren Shan Saga.
This Is a long way in to the saga of laten crepsly books so if you havent read any upto now pick up birth of a killer and work your way through you wont be disapointed.
I'm not going to spoil any of the plots so i will shut up now, but like all he wrights this is a winner. Ps sorry about the spelling The Saga of Larten Crepsley (1) - Birth of a Killer
