Author: Darren Shan

Cirque Du Freak is a series which follows young Darren Shan, a boy who makes a deal with a vampire to save the life of his best friend. This eight books series will be making its way to the big screen in 2010. The film, Cirque Du Freak will star Josh Hutcherson and Chris Massoglia. So check out the series that is creating some serious buzz!


How It All Began

When Darren's friend Steve is bitten by a vampire's deadly pet spider, the only way to save his life is for Darren to agree to become a half-vampire and assume the life of a vampire's assistant. It is in book one, simply titled Cirque Du Freak, that Darren agrees to become Mr. Crepsley's (the vampire who owned the spider) assistant. Vampire Mountain is the fourth book in this saga and finds Darren settling into his life as a half-vampire, eight years later. He's been through some pretty crazy adventures and now it's time for Darren to meet the Vampire Council - the leaders of all vampires in the world.


Vampire Mountain

Darren, Mr. Crepsley and his spider Madame Octa head for Vampire Mountain, a trek that vampires only make every twelve years. It's a long, cold road to see the Vampire Council and vampire law forbids all vampires to wear shoes or heavy clothing, as pain should be part of the experience. A new evil is said to be rising, threatening to extinguish vampires from the earth. No, it's not Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's something entirely different. Thousands of years ago, a group of vampires broke away from the rest of the race, becoming a race of their own, known as the vampaneze. The vampaneze, unlike the vampires, kill humans and love destruction. And they are now ready to destroy the vampire race.


Allies of the Night

This is the latest book in the Cirque Du Freak series. Darren has come a long way from his days of an oridnary boy, but in Allies of the Night, Darren heads back to school and tries to resume a normal life. Think he can really do that after all he's been through? Find out by reading this spooky series!


The Bottom Line

Vampire Mountain is a must-read for all you fans of the dark and mysterious. The Cirque Du Freak series sheds a whole new light on vampires, their traditions and might even have you wishing you could be a vampire assistant like Darren Shan!

I've proved through real evidence and facts that the earth is indeed flat.  Yes, it had indents and high elevation, such as mountains, but overall, it's flat. If you need an example, think of a pancake. The pancake itself is flat, but it can have bubbles (mountains) and indents (such as valleys).    I'm not here to try and change anyone's opinion, only to state my own. This isn't about opinions the earth is spherical and that's a fact. Countless evidence proves this and if you don't believe that evidence then you your self should leave your home and travel as far in one direction as you can go you will not meet a end. I said opinion so I didn't get attacked. I know the earth is flat. All the 'evidence' comes from NASA and the government, both of which have lied to us countless times. Just because the earth is flat doesn't mean there has to be an edge. Go drive to a beach or look up 'ocean' on google.  The horizon is flat and doesn't bend at all. How is that possible on a ball earth? Have you ever travelled in plane? The horizon is a little curved. So the reason you gave is obviously not true.  Also, why would the government and NASA lie about the shape if the earth? What would it give them?
