    First, let me just put it out there that Darren Shan is da man I freaking LOVE LOVE LOVE The Saga of Darren Shan.I read the books when I was 15 I think, I recall some of it made me laugh, cry, get angry and upset, while reading others I felt shocked, disgusted, horrified, and at one point I felt horribly sad and depressed because of the feels in these books Starting with the first bookIt was fun, exciting, fresh, unique So very different from the YA novels I m used to I love the charact First, let me just put it out there that Darren Shan is da man I freaking LOVE LOVE LOVE The Saga of Darren Shan.I read the books when I was 15 I think, I recall some of it made me laugh, cry, get angry and upset, while reading others I felt shocked, disgusted, horrified, and at one point I felt horribly sad and depressed because of the feels in these books Starting with the first bookIt was fun, exciting, fresh, unique So very different from the YA novels I m used to I love the characters made up of circus performers, they intrigued me and I remembered feeling jealous of Darren because I wished I could meet them too, especially the legendary Larten Crepsley who btw has his own series mind you A mentor to poor Darren, the reluctant fledgling vampire Enough about me gushing already, if you like adventure books mixed with paranormal spooky stuff, creepy vampires, sassy characters, mystery and magic, make sure to check out this series It s going to be awesome

    3.5 Stars.This was a fun, nostalgic read however there were a few things I wish I could change about it just to make it that little bit better.Darren reminded me a lot of Percy Jackson which was nice, I love and miss him which gave what was quite a dark, gruesome story a witty edge Mr Crepsley was for sure my favourite character and I m excited to readabout him, he s one of those characters that tries really hard to come across emotionless but has a huge heart and it fails them Despite 3.5 Stars.This was a fun, nostalgic read however there were a few things I wish I could change about it just to make it that little bit better.Darren reminded me a lot of Percy Jackson which was nice, I love and miss him which gave what was quite a dark, gruesome story a witty edge Mr Crepsley was for sure my favourite character and I m excited to readabout him, he s one of those characters that tries really hard to come across emotionless but has a huge heart and it fails them Despite this being a children s book, it didn t read like it Yes the plot was easy and simple but the darkness was gripping and kept me hooked.My only negative is the use of exclamation marks They were used at the end of sentences that certainly didn t need them and made the story too immature even though I suppose it would appeal to a younger audience It s just one of those small things that once I saw it I just couldn t unsee it, although I tried very hard to.I will definitly be reading the next book, I am very curious to see where the story will go

    As I read the first of these three volumes, my initial two thoughts were 1 Snakes are not slimy and 2 I don t really like Darren s character very much and this bugged me Now that I ve finished these three stories, I have to admit that I ended up liking Darren s character after all and enjoyed the story and, book 3 left me wantingIs Evra safe Will Darren see his family again Steve Debbie Does Mr Crepsley rejoin the Generals What about the Little People Is Lefty a friend Long As I read the first of these three volumes, my initial two thoughts were 1 Snakes are not slimy and 2 I don t really like Darren s character very much and this bugged me Now that I ve finished these three stories, I have to admit that I ended up liking Darren s character after all and enjoyed the story and, book 3 left me wantingIs Evra safe Will Darren see his family again Steve Debbie Does Mr Crepsley rejoin the Generals What about the Little People Is Lefty a friend Long and short I was pulled in

    I have read the first 2 books in Estonian but I remembered little, so it was nice to re read it and also to read further The story has its charm but you can never be certain that the story is happyIt isn t exactly sad or scary either and it s easy to read I like it.

    I watched the movie The Vampire s Assistant years ago And honestly, I can t remember much from it besides the bare bones However I remember finding the idea interesting and when I found the bind up of the first three books of the series at Boekenfestijn, I instantly grabbed it The overall idea of the world of Cirque Du Freak is solid It moves away from the stereotypical vampire within mainstream media without losing the essence That a vampire is a predator I also mostly enjoy the freak sho I watched the movie The Vampire s Assistant years ago And honestly, I can t remember much from it besides the bare bones However I remember finding the idea interesting and when I found the bind up of the first three books of the series at Boekenfestijn, I instantly grabbed it The overall idea of the world of Cirque Du Freak is solid It moves away from the stereotypical vampire within mainstream media without losing the essence That a vampire is a predator I also mostly enjoy the freak show, though sometimes I wishedwas done with that However there are plentybooks in this series The plot in the first book is a tad wonky, and overall the plot in the first three books do rely heavily in places on not communicating with other people If some actually talked and were honest, some of the issues would not have occurred I do appreciate how the author doesn t shy away from heavier topics, like the funeral at the end of the first book Plenty of authors would have skipped past that part, especially in middle grade I have to say that I am glad I got the bind up and that I read it all right after each other The books themselves are short I think they are ideal for the target group, middle grade I do wish that in the second book the prologue had not been such a summary of the first book and that the first chapter had not been in third point of view The rest of the book, and the other books, are in first point of view It didn t add a whole lot either The characters are okay Darren, the main character, I liked initially in the first part of the first book, but with the events in the second half of that book I lost some respect for him because of the decisions he made However it does show him as a flawed character Throughout these first three books you do see him grow This especially shows in the third book He knowsabout being a half vampire and doesn t need to rely as heavily on Mr Crepsley I have not decided how I feel about Mr Crepsley He s a bit of a grumpy vampire, and especially in the first book, not all that likeable I quite enjoy Ezra s character He evens out Darren There are plenty of characters to explore in the next few books, and I can see some possible story lines with them with the hints we ve been given so far I think this is an excellent middle grade book for children that love a bit of horror and macabre

    Superb I totally love the first three series of The Darren Shan Saga a.k.a Vampire Blood What I like the most is that the author is Darren Shan himself Well, maybe it is the twist of his own life journal but I found it rather amusing and a bit neat.There are few interesting facts about vampires in the series.1 Vampires are immortals But they don t live forever as they will die eventually Vampire s aging 1 year in 10 years of human world So I guess if I m 100, then he s only 10 Wow Whi Superb I totally love the first three series of The Darren Shan Saga a.k.a Vampire Blood What I like the most is that the author is Darren Shan himself Well, maybe it is the twist of his own life journal but I found it rather amusing and a bit neat.There are few interesting facts about vampires in the series.1 Vampires are immortals But they don t live forever as they will die eventually Vampire s aging 1 year in 10 years of human world So I guess if I m 100, then he s only 10 Wow While half vamp is 1 in 5 human years.2 Vampire don t have fangs Face the truth people They only slit the throat open with their nail and sucked the blood in a small dose in order to survive.3 They can and they have to eat regular human food to survive A vampire that live only on blood are vampenenze and they slaughtered the victims But, they are loyal and can be trusted Keep their promisethan anything.4 Cirque Du Freak has incredible people I wish I could watch it my self That is actually some of awesome facts I found In this book, I didn t see any spectacular writing, the thing that drew me in was the plot The whole thing was near perfect However, I just love it as it is now If I were 15, this would be my best read EVER for this year I love Harry Potter and I love Darren Shan too I never read Percy Jackson yet, but i know I will collect this series I know my review doesn t give much this time because I love the book I am not a horror book fan but this one is different.I give this book 5 stars because of it s incredible imagination Also, there s some cool actions from the characters I highly recommend this book to any person who loves a good vampire story And whoever love Harry Potter, R.L Stine and Christopher Pike

    This teen book about a young English boy who visits the Cirque Du Freak and ends up a vampire s assistant was ok It was written for teens and should only be read by teens.The saga of Darren Shan is told in first person The author does a great job channeling the thoughts, logic, and behavior of a young teen boy As an adult reader, it is infuriating but as a pre teen it is probably perfect andrealistic.A quick summary Darren Shan is a middle school boy His friend finds a flyer advertisi This teen book about a young English boy who visits the Cirque Du Freak and ends up a vampire s assistant was ok It was written for teens and should only be read by teens.The saga of Darren Shan is told in first person The author does a great job channeling the thoughts, logic, and behavior of a young teen boy As an adult reader, it is infuriating but as a pre teen it is probably perfect andrealistic.A quick summary Darren Shan is a middle school boy His friend finds a flyer advertising Cirque Du Freak, an illegal freak show This show changes everyone s life His friend recognizes one of the performers as a vampire, begs to be changed to a vampire, is rejected then vows to be a vampire hunter The next thing you know, Darren becomes a vampire s assistant The end of part one has Darren leaving town and his friend Steve vowing to follow him to the end of the Earth to kill him Funny thing Steve is never, ever mentioned again So much for that threat Another thing why do we need to know that Mr Crepsley went by another name That is not explained either.Part two is about Darren making a friend Yeah for him Darren and his mentor re join the Cirque so that Darren can have a friend There is lots of talk of the Little People and Mr Tiny but no details ever emerge.Part three is about Darren, Evra, and Mr Crepsley traveling to a town, Darren getting a girlfriend, a vampaneze that is terrorizing the town no one knows it, but he is killing humans.Evra and Darren walk around town a lot Evra with his scales snake boy and Darren in his ridiculous pirate suit but don t do anything Then we meet the weird vampanese The book only gets worse Of course Darren saves everyone in the end with his quick thinking

    I read this book some years ago, but it stuck with me in the back of my mind, because it was so unlike anything I ve ever read while I was a skinny, too many limbs to count teen The beginning captures your interest, first because it is written in first perspective and secondly because it actually doesn t start with a rainy evening, a clouded day or anything remotely close to what a usual paranormal book starts with especially when it comes to vampires The world is well thought out and it is I read this book some years ago, but it stuck with me in the back of my mind, because it was so unlike anything I ve ever read while I was a skinny, too many limbs to count teen The beginning captures your interest, first because it is written in first perspective and secondly because it actually doesn t start with a rainy evening, a clouded day or anything remotely close to what a usual paranormal book starts with especially when it comes to vampires The world is well thought out and it is clear that a lot of attention has been put into the details and in how to make everything come together The idea of a circus is not one I have come across before and it breathes new life into a world which have slowly been taken over by whimpy vampires with no weaknesses who eats animal blood But, as you grow older, the books are still good and still an enjoyable read, but you ll probably notice the mistakesI haven t read them in a long time, but I probably will soon and then I ll return and edit this review to match my new look on the series As a side note At least the vampires don t sparkle Nor do they eat animal blood Or anything else They die from the sun and by getting a stake through the heart And by throwing together a new vampire world and having a side story with a circus, Darren Shan have now moved to my independent authors shelf
