“…fast-paced and compelling book … full of satisfyingly macabre touches…which leaves the reader hungry for more.” JK Rowling

‘Brilliant, macabre tale.’ Guardian

"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 great story-telling." Roddy Doyle

“The Vampire’s Assistant blazes a thrilling, gruesome trail through a fascinating plot.” The Good Book Guide

About the author and series: Darren Shan also known as Darren O’Shaughnessy as his real name is an Irish author born in London, he began his early career as a typewriter with much of his interest in dark comedy. He was involved in many young adult books until January 2000 where he wrote his first children’s book Cirque du Freak. The Saga of Darren Shan is a series of books about vampires, in the books the life of Shan is narrated when he was transformed into a half human half vampire. In the beginning of the series, the story tells the reader about Shan’s experiences and how he was transformed into half vampire as he was trying to save his best friend, Steve. As the story progresses, you will experience the challenges of Shan’s new life and changes within him and how he needs to adapt to his new powers and problems as a vampire. In 2009, the series was made into a movie when it was bought by Universal Studios, though there are some differences. In the stories later in the series, it talks about several characters, vampires and how they view life and death and their various customs and beliefs. It also highlights the way of life of Vampires and shows in detail more about the lifestyle and day to day life which brings readers more into another aspect, and away from the general horrible depiction of vampires. The books has been published in more than 33 countries and in more than 30 languages as well as released as a CD recording of the books. As mentioned earlier, the vampires portrayed in the series are a little different and unique as compared to many other portrayals. These vampires are in fact alive which means just like ordinary people they can be killed as well by guns and conventional weapons. Note: there are some gruesome scenes in this set which includes chewed limbs and bloody scenes. You may also be interested in our Halloween category for several similar titles. 

The vampires in the series are much stronger than the average man and they often run at speeds too fast for people to see. They also have super senses and can feel things like a predator, seeing in darkness and track scents...
