Cirque Du Freak
“…fast-paced and compelling book which leaves the reader hungry for more.” JK Rowling
"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

~ Calum Fairweather (Darren Shan fan)
During the first book, Cirque Du Freak, Darren Shan becomes a half vampire to save his friends life.
During the second, Darren Joins the Cirque Du Freak and tries to save his friend Sam from a Dangerous Wolf Man
During the Third, Darren and Mr. Crespley leave Cirque Du Freak and go to a city where Mr. Crespley tries to hunt down a vampaneze, a vampire who kills to drink blood. (Vampires just drink enough for them to survive and do not kill the person by draining all their blood)
The Darren Shan Trilogy 1, THe Vampire Blood Trilogy is a good buy and is a bargain, considering the price and the fact that in one book it has the first three Darren Shan Stories.
The saga of Darren Shan book review
My first review is on `cirque du freak' where Darren Shan, an ordinary school boy goes to watch a freak show called cirque du freak, but ends up changing his life forever. Which is more than what he wanted.
In this book Darrens best friends all put their money together to get tickets to see a circus, but you needed to have a flyer to buy tickets. There was a catch though, for each flyer only 2 tickets could be bought. So since his mate Steve bought the tickets he was allowed to go but the others had to try and catch the ticket whilst it was amongst similar shaped bits of paper.
When Steve was at the freak show he saw a familiar face that belonged to a man called, Larten Crepsley, who he had seen in a comic book. At the end of the show Steve stuck around to see Mr. Crepsley and told Darren to go back to his home. After he thought Darren had left he asked Larten a question that made him mad when he received the answer.
Also in the book, Darren Shan tries to steal a special spider and ends up paying for it. A threat also comes in chapter 32, and shock will strike the characters and you when and if you read it.
I say this book is great for ages 11+ and I give this book 5 stars because it includes all the qualities a book should has: Pain, shock, horror and everything else.
