    Dark and Wonderfully Intoxicating - A must read!

    I stumbled upon this book by chance, and was shocked by the story I had discovered. I had first assumed that this was book that really wasn't my type, but I was pleasantly surprised! What I found was a story about a city full of seedy gangsters, mysterious crime bosses, and ancient magic all coming together with colorful, brooding characters in a dark and twisting plot.I greedily spent every spare minute I could reading this book, hardly able to keep it out of my hands until it was finished. Wonderfully written, masterfully plotted, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat with every thrilling turn from beginning to blazing end. This was my first time reading anything from Darren Shan, and I feel he has shown to be a wonderfully talented writer. I can't wait to see what he brings to the table next. This is one author who's gripping stories will long have a place on my bookshelves. An absolute must-read.

    Great book - lots of twists

    Not sure how I would classify this - it's a mix of mystery, sci fi and suspense with a bit of history and romance thrown it. Well written and quick to read, while leaving the reader guessing until the end about the truth behind who (or what) the main character truly is.

    procession of the dead

    PROCESSION OF THE DEAD is a fantastic book. Darren Shan always creates wonderful life-like characters that change the world. This book is full of action, romance, and gangster violence. The City is a futuristic city full of all types of sin. The main character of this book is hard to pin down. Sometimes you want to hate him for his evil ways, but you still want him to win in the end. Capac Raimi came to The City to make his way as a gangster, but quickly he's on his way to ruling The City. But first he must solve the mystery of his missing past.

    Not Shan's best work

    Darren Shan is one of my favorite authors, but I feel like he missed the mark on this series.
    As always, I did enjoy Shan's way of wording sentences, twisting the plot, and tying up every lose end.
    But readers want a main character they can relate to, and this series lacks one. The main character in book 1 and part of book 3 is difficult to like or understand on an emotional level. The "other" main character, if you will, in book 2 and most of 3 is easier to like, but not on a personal level.
