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!

    -=Chapter 1=- Uninvited Enemies My alarm went beeping off. God, why did I have to wake up at 7 AM? I was Faith Baxter. Baxters shouldn't wake at 7.  Anyways, let's say some envied me, Kitty, Garroth, Lynn, Jay, Malia, Dom, and Xylia. Thanks to them, my parents were killed, I was almost killed, Jayla turned on us, and I fell into a river and gorge and broke my arm.  I love those guys.  Other than that, we are kind of heroes. We killed the government, NOW AMERICA IS IN CHAOS! YAY TO US! Well, I'm getting off track. Back to the day... I got up and got ready, putting my hair in my normal bun as always. Damn, I looked good. I stretched and got changed, opening my dorm door to the fresh, popcorn smelling scent of the hallway. My boyfriend, Garroth, was apparently still sleeping.  That lazy guy. Oh well. I stretched my large angel wings.  Oh yea. I'm a freak.  I flew up at the high ceiling and flew to my class. It really avoids the crowds, and you can high five any other bird like freaks flying bye. I landed at combat class. I took the class because of what happened with the government.  After classes finished, I decided to go to the city. I snuck to the portal and entered, walking along the sidewalk. Once I made it, I sat down on a bench until something moved on the corner of my eye.  When I saw who it was, I immediately texted on the group text.  "GUYS, THE GOVERNMENT IS BACK!"
