This is kind of an action packed book. If you read my review from book 3 then this is the book where he rejoins one of his old friends and meets a friend from before he was a vampire. This book is not that high on my list of favorite books. My highest book that i recommend is book 5.

In the book Allies of the Night (Cirgue Du Freak Series #8), the author Darren Shan shares with us his story, through his journal. Ever since young Darren Shan had been blooded by his master Mr. Creplsey, he has become a half vampire. Troughout his years as a half vampire he has spent his time working with a traveling freak show known as the Cirque Du Freak. However the time had come for every vampire to make the treacherous and exhausting journey to vampire mountain. During Darren's stay at Vampire Mountain he had become a Vampire Prince. The most highest office to be held by a vampire. But in his case a half vampire. While all this is going on tension has built up between the vampires and their worst enemies, the vampaneze. Now they are facing one another in full out war. Going head to head in brutal, bloody battles. That unfortunately usually end with death. And Darren is in the middle of this ever raging war. Then a mysterious and troubling message has come. Only three vampires stand a chance a chance of defeating the Vampaneze Lord, who is leading the Vampaneze into battle. Those three vampires are a Vampire Prince, Vancha March, the one-time General and Darren's master, Larten Crepsley, and you guessed it, Darren Shan.

I began reading the Cirque Du Freak series about the time the movie came out, I thought a series about vampires, well can't be worst then Twilight. So I went to my local bookstore and picked up the first book, and well I thought it was one of the best vampire books I've ever read! The plot was excellent and it kept on getting better, throughout the whole story I couldn't read the books fast enough. Allies of the night has to be my favorite though. Darren is now about 35 and is in a body of a sixteen year old, after coming back to Mr. Crespsley's home town, the same place were 12 year old Darren had his first girlfriend. Strange deaths happen so they arrive to find out who's behind them, they have a hunch and day and night they wander the tunnels looking for the vampeneze lord. Then when thing are going no where they get an unexpected arrival saying Darren is suppose to be in school! That's when things start getting weirder, Darren not having been in school for over twenty years has no idea what he's learning or how to act, however he gets some help from an old friend. I think this book is my favorite in the series because of everything that's going on, the character structure and the always climaxing plot. I would recommend this book series to anyone in the last book you feel satisfied with the ending and feel that throughout the whole series the ending wasn't a let down. I think that this book is great for people between the ages of 12-50 it's just one of those books which anyone can relate to and is a fun read!!!

I have had a hard time getting my 6th grader to get in her readng minutes for school. She got into this series and she reads ALL the time and reads more than the required minutes. I thought she might be scared because it involves vampires, but she says it doesn't scare her. I would highly recommend this series!

Reading this book was like having your heart stop because of the betrayal and reunion. This book was filled with romance,horror,dark humor, and grim suprises. If you have liked all of the last seven you will like this one even better. A must read!

Darren Shan is in the Mr. Crepsley home town and Harkat came along people are dying the hunt for the Vampaneze prince continues and it¿s Mr. Crepsley Darren and Harkats job to find them. One day they get a knock at the door and Darren Shan had to go back to school. And he meets some interesting people People that would like this book would enjoy horror moves and action movies. This book is number 8 in a series of 13 books. You would defiantly have to read the rest of the books to get this one because there are so many twists in the series. That if you just picked up on of those books you would be completely lost. The last time I read one of these books was about a year ago and I totally lost when I started to read this book. This book was pretty good and I liked it a lot I liked all the action

Darren and his companions including Harkat and Mr. Creplsey are to go in search of the Vampaneze leader and elimanate him at any cost. Thus is the return of a certain activist and someone darren thought he wouldn't have seen again since the incident back in the first book.

This is the 8th book in the Cirque Du Freak Series. Darren, Harket, Mr. Crepsley and Vancha are still faced with the journey that could lead to the end of The War of Scars. Also like Mr. Tiny and Evanna said there are only 3 other chances to cross with the Vampanze Lord and only three chances to beat him! Another thing, out of Darren, Vancha and Mr.Crepsley, 2 will die and the other will stay alive and have to see the ending of the strong, good-hearted vampires. This is not all of Darren's everyday problems he has to deal with school! Come on this remarkable journey with Darren, Mr. Crepsley, Harkat, and Vancha as author, Darren Shan leads you to trouble which tags along.

This book is really good. I remeber my mom got me the first one out from the library, and I just had to find out what happened. I just finished #8, and now I have to go out and get #9, 10, and however many more are out by the time I walk myself to Borders. Or mooch a ride, it's all the same. Great series, and this one is great if you like books with plot twists and tension and threats of's so good...*goes to read the ones I already have...*

Brilliant!Magnificent!Wonduva!Sorry got a little carried away. This is probablly the most encahnting of the series I anticipated this book as I will Killers of the Dawn. But I have heard speculation over there be movies and i've always thought they would be great movies i'm just curious if they can grasp the thrilling books, and reach my expectations. If you know anything of the movies in clude it in your review for this or Killers of the Dawn.

This book is an amazing book. I have read the series and I can never put the books down. This book was a great combination between horror and action. Every time you read one of Darren Shan's books you will always be waiting for the next one. None of these books have been boring. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes that type of action, horror and magic. This book does not have magic though but the characters have special powers. Again I reccomend this book.
