This book is one of the best I have read Darren Shan added so much details and surprises in this book that it will keep you begging for more but some parts are sketchy most part it's the ending it is confusing and hard to follow but the book was overall one of my favorite books by Darren Shan. I would recommend this book for readers who love suspense and surprises but I would skip the last few chapters if you like the series as much as I did. I would also suggest that you read other series by Darren Shan.

I'm disappointed personally in the series. come on first off the ending is totally unbelievable and stupid. It's a total cop out he not only killed off all the best characters he made the entire story completely irrelevant. Especially since the series started off with some much promise with its engaging characters and twisting plot line. I felt both shocked and disgusted at the end much as one would feel watching a cute child suddenly walking off a cliff and as you edge closer barely able to look at the mutilated body lying below. I mean come on are you afraid of putting happy ending or are you just incapable of writing one. To anyone one who has had the luck of not finishing the series yet I suggest strongly that you put it down unless your mind enjoys such a twisted horrible ending; in that case enjoy yourself because that's exactly what this is.

    Only so-so

    I felt so cheated at the end of this book. It was as if the rest of the series (which I LOVED) was a complete waste of my time. I would recommend the series to others, but almost feel as if I should also recommend skipping the last book and make up your own ending to the story!

    Love the series, but that ending, just, huh, wasn't sure what I was expecting but I don't know, was a little disappointed. Still, the series was really good and still recommend it.

    Not a great ending

    Well I will start by saying I did love the other 11 books in the series, this book however was a little disappointing to me. You read the whole series thinking the end will be a good one and then it is like "BAM" you just read 12 books for nothing. Well I did enjoy the other books so I will recommend them to others but I will tell them that they probably are going to be upset about the ending, I just hate how you get involved in some characters and at the end you never find out what happens to some of them.

    interesting...

    This book was pretty cool, but COMPLETELY different from the rest of the series (except for the Lake of Souls). It was really bizarre and i didnt really like the turn the series took. I cant help but relate this book to a tangled web... i must give Shan credit for thinking up this wacked plot, though. It's kinda weird that the series is really over...oh well, i enjoyed it while it lasted.
