Cirque Du Freak Book 2. The saga of darren shan. The vampire's assistant. Steve recognized one of the characters from the show. He'd seen a drawing of him in an old book and knew he was - a vampire. Steve stuck around after the show and asked the vampire to turn him into one, too! Mr. Crepsley - the vampire - would have, but he found out Steve's blood was evil, and that was the end of that. Or it would have been the end, except I stuck around, too, to see what Steve was up to.

Darren and Steve sneak out to an old theater to see a freak show and soon find themselves deeper into this mysterious world than they ever could have imagined.

Not many people know that vampires started the UFO stories. It was the perfect cover. The last two months had passed pretty quickly, because I'd been so busy learning about being a vampire's assistant. People all over the world were waking up to find strange scars on their bodies and were blaming it on imaginary aliens. Mr. Crepsley wasn't a good teacher and didn't like repeating himself, so I had to pay attention and learn fast. I was really strong now.

I remember reading this book as a child and loved it back then. I am now an instructional aide for some 6th graders. They really were not invested in reading until I gave them this book. There was one scholar in particular who would not read any book given to them because they were not "good" at reading until they picked this one up. They have read this book enthusiastically and actually want to complete their work quickly so they can get back to reading the book. Any book that can truly change a scholar's perception of reading is truly a marvelous book. I'm glad to get them for the scholars of my class.

My son was not a reader, but when he was in middle school 11 yrs ago, he read this entire series in a week! I couldn't believe it, knew it had to be awesome, so I read it also and loved it. My daughter, who is now 11, is an avid reader at an advanced level. When I suggested this series she half heartedly agreed to read it, but I got the impression she didn't feel it would be up to her standards. When she finally ran out of books and picked up the 1st book, she was riveted and couldn't put it down! Missing a few of the series, I immediately popped on Amazon to pick this one up. It arrived ASAP in the exact condition as listed. Couldn't be happier !

I had a terrible time getting my son to read. At the time, his school recommended thirty-minutes of reading at home every day and it was always a fight to get him to sit down and read. A friend of mine said her son really enjoyed these books so I ordered them in the hopes that he'd enjoy them.

Because I'm a tad overprotective, I decided to start reading the books prior to giving them to him. I was instantly hooked. I'm not a huge fan of teen books (never read the very popular Harry Potter or Twilight), but these books were fantastic. I found myself reading them very quickly and then anxious to have the next book to continue the story.

The characters are well developed and the stories were age appropriate (he was in 5th grade at the time). Eventually he ended up reading the entire series of 12 books (and so did I!). Some time later the movie came out... sadly it wasn't very good.

Since he's read these books he's developed a love of reading and devours almost everything we get him. I know that these books aren't 100% responsible for this new love of reading but I feel like they definitely got us moving in the right direction. I would definitely recommend them to any young teen or even adult!

After seeing a preview clip for the movie version, I thought it would be interesting to read this. I read the frist 5 books of the series the weekend.

This book (and series) is aimed at boys and girls in the middle school range. There are lots of icky-icky moments that kids seem to love, and the moral decisions are fairly simplistic. Having said that, these are pretty good adventures. Each one has the plotting and story trajectory of, maybe, a weekly TV program.

But these are good adventures for kids. I enjoyed them, and would recommend them (and plan to this very morning!) to any parent trying to interest their children in reading. This story of a young boy who ends up as a vampire's assistant, his further adventures, his growth in knowledge, are worthwhile.

I also liked how the author snuck in a few challenging vocabulary items (the hero wonders why his vampire master has to use such big words!).

Read and enjoy.

Love love love this vampire-based book series. I am a 58 year old female, however, I have always enjoyed "boy" type, action based fiction books as a reader. What I found about the entire Cirque Du Freak series, however, was that it was not JUST about being a vampire, or a member of a Freak Show. It teaches about loyalty and friendship; what a real 'family' is, even without the blood-relation.

In fact, I was so smitten with this series (Mr Shan, are listening?), that I made a gift of all my books to a then 11-year-old friend, because I was confident there was little to no swearing of any consequence, no real sexual content, but a good wholesome and fun teaching story definitely well-worth my time and my young friend's.

Hours and hours of good reading fun and miles of smiles afterward. I cannot wait to read more from Darren Shan.

I love this book, i rear it when i was a child and could never stop reading it, even after i finish the whole story. It get boring at the first few chapter in the first book, get better later on. Those that loves horrors or bump in the night, this book will get the mood going, it does not matter if your a child, teens, or an adult.

I recommend this book for all ages as i had bought the whole series, great book to pass down through generations.

Darren Shan wins again in the fourth installment of this addictive series. I challenge anyone who has read one of the books in the series to claim that anything else was on their mind until reading the next book in the series...and the next, next, next...

Vampire Mountain presents several new twists and pieces of information that add even more intrigue to an already addictive and entertaining series.

We learn more about little people and tons more about the ways of vampires. This book is a setup for the next in the series which occurs four hours after the end of this book.

The biggest and most important part of this piece of the series is the news of what is on the horizon of the clan's future and their biggest challenge ever--The Vampaneze...I will say no more as I do not want to spoil the experience.

This series is brilliant. What a fantastic and creative journey!
