    Well, this was good, interesting. And Steve kind of reminded me of Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians for some reason. Must be the hair. If you like the book series, then you might like this.

    Reviewed by Randstostipher "tallnlankyrn" Nguyen for TeensReadToo.com

    Relive the first novel in the most action-packed, fast-paced thriller of a series ever to rule the human and vampire world with this newly published CIRQUE DU FREAK manga.

    The story surrounds Darren Shan, the infamous spider lover. On his way home one night he is given a flyer to a circus. Not just any other regular circus, however - this is the circus of freaks. Accompanied by his friend, Steve, Darren witnesses the most peculiar and amazing acts that no other circus has to offer.

    Among these acts are Larten Crepsley and his spider, Madam Octa. It was like love at first sight for Darren as the hypnotic and magnificent spider did her act. Little did Darren know that Madam Octa and the brash decisions Darren himself would be making shortly would change his life forever.

    Darren's world goes from circus of freaks to the underworld of vampires in a flash.

    Takahiro Arai's art is extremely mesmerizing and helps the reader picture what the characters look like, or how they should look in the upcoming Cirque du Freak movie. Each manga will mirror each novel, and the manga is read in a true right-to-left fashion and even incorporates some Japanese, such as gokuku = gulp or hena = flop.

    The story itself may be old, but seeing it in this new light is refreshing and brings back memories of when I first read it in 7th grade.

    Open up your wallet, because once you read the manga, you are going to want to read the novel itself!
