Once they're hooked, kids tend to rip into the flesh of these books, quickly draining them of their life blood. The covers, with images of ghouls, creeping hands and dripping fangs are terrifying alone. ' Metro Life, Evening Standard

Darren Shan tells of a girl named Koyasan who has to cross the river into a graveyard and save her younger sister, except for one thing. She is horrified at even the idea of going into the graveyard where ghosts come out of at night. Along the way we meet some interesting ghosts and each one is one more step to rescueing her sister.
I loved this! It was such a scary, creepy story yet with some valuable morals, great lessons on bravery and family ties and such a wonderful ending. I guess I was expecting something blunt at the end, but this was perfect. I loved Koyasan, and such a beautiful name! Would totally call my kid that if I had one lol
I'm totally going out of my way to read one of Darren's zombie books now. I've missed his writing. I know this is 8 years after it's release, but well played Mr Shan, well played!
