    Darren and Harkat

    Compared to the rest of the series this book is much different than the other ones. I felt like it had a different tone and the plot didn't make too much sense, but Darren really matures in this book and proves himself once again. Overall, the ending was a surprise and worth the read for any die-hard Darren Shan fan.

    Exciting!

    This series is a boy's boy reading material. Few books are written for the preteen boy and if your boy likes thrilling adventure stories about vampires this is the series to buy.

    Book Rating

    This book Cirque De Freak Lake of Souls is eighth of the series sending main character Darren Shan he is also the author, and his friend Harkat to a mythical world filled with twist and turns just to figure out what Harkat used to be. To find out both have to overcome harsh climate, and harsh landscape. The two also have to solve confusing puzzles, and face dragons, giant worms, even giant frogs! If you are into books set in different world setting, and twist in the plot I highly recommend this book. The books description on the out of this world landscape, and creatures leaves you pondering how if this was real, I highly recommend this book to fantasy readers. I rate this book four stars

    Id dip my feet in this lake!!!!!

    I read this book years ago but i remember everything cause i write a large one hundred page report about each book and this one is great too. Darren Shan's books never bore me and,well none of them do i read them then i read other books till the next darren shan novel comes out so i don't stop reading i cant wait for the next novel of his second series to come out this april. I'm just writing on how this one was really cool and i loved while reading i pictured the souls in the lake sooo many and that one dead short person named Harakat who didden't have a real body at all but wanted to find his real soul in the lake of souls. Mr. Tiny turned the little short people into slaves at first like Harakat till darren set him free.This novel is great really people are critics but lake of souls is the most known book that put me through times were i didden't even want to stop reading cause the quest that darren and harakat had to go to and the obstacles the murky waters of the dead made me speechless and how they had to fish for Harakat's soul made a OUTSTANDING ENIDNG!!!! it was great!!

    Wait...What!?

    I was kinda surprised when I figured out this book was gonna be more sci-fi than anything. But I guess its supposed to be that way seeing as how it's a glimpse into Des Tiny's mind. Reading a couple of reader reviews I see that no one likes it because its sci-fi. When really its just a more fantastical glimpse into what Mr. Tiny can and would do.

    Good

    Wondered what the Lake of Souls would look like. And imagined Harkat to look a little different. But still like this anyway. This one was weird.
