    Excellent page turner with great twists

    Darren Shan is a vampire prince who at the time is traveling with a "freak show", the show has stopped in Darren's hometown and it brings him nothing but trouble. Several years ago, Darren faked his death to join the show so he cannot interact with his childhood friends without ruining destiny. Unfortunately, one of Darren's friends, a world famous goalkeeper, stops at the show and meets Darren. When he invites Darren to his game, a mass murder breaks out. Darren chases after the killers then is shot by their leader's son, and eventually rescued. Darren is faced with a big decision at the end of the story, will he accept the dare?

    I liked everything about this book, the twisting plot, the psychotic villains, heroic sidekicks, and the detailed setting. My favorite part was the ultimatum at the end of the book between Darren and his archenemy.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes action books, mystery books, murder novels, or even science fiction. It is a great book for any reading level or interest.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO TEENS

    I would highly recommend this series to teens who like fighting fantasy and scary stuff like vampires. This book has some cursing so littler kids wouldnt be very good and it has a lot of vilolence and blood.

    Dumb characters

    I cant believe that Steve did not realize that if he wiped ouut all humans, he would die as well as the rest of the vampaneze. Doesnt he realize that if he kills all humans they will have no source of blood to drink. The book wasgreat although the characters had no common sense.
