If you like fiction, Vampiers and all type of creature you should really read this then. This is about 2 Best friends were they have found 2 ticket to the Cirque Du Freak. So They Found out that all the creaters they see in the place are real. So theres a vampire and one of the friends wants to be like him but he says that his blood is to evil when his other friends blood is pure. So they deside to take the vampires pet spider and one of the friends get bite so the other on had become a vampire assistant to save his Life. The Book was okay at first its boring but then the more deepper you get into it the more it gets better.

My son started reading these books through the school library. I ended up buying him the entire series as a christmas gift. He told me to read the first two or three books because he knew I would like them. He was right! Great series!!

Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan is an excellent book. i enjoyed this second one too. very glamourous and excellent. now im into more books about spiders, vampires, blood, and freak shows. but come on you guys, do you believe that the first one is real? do you? thats crazy. hmm well maybe its real, but i dont believe it is. and guess what people, the third one is coming out and its gonna be called, 'Tunnels Of Blood'. i dont know the fourth one yet, but i will get the title pretty soon.

   Cirque du Freak is about a 12 year old boy name Darren that is half human,and half vampire. Darren has this problem because he tried to save his friend Stevens life. Mr.Crepsley the teacher of Darren tried to help with his vampire abilities. Darren cant hang out with his friends because of his ability to break bones. Mr.Crepsley has an idea of take him to Cirque du Freak because Darren can find his age that have this problem.Cirque du Freak is a travelling freak show that contains snakes,wolfs,spiders,and more. When Darren arrived there Mr.Tall the manager of Cirque du Freak decides to put him with Evra. Evra is a snake boy perfromer and does chores for Cirque du Freak. Darren see the skills that he represents so he decides to be friends with him.    I like this book better than the first because it elaborates more on Darrens vampire life. In book one Darren was all human and live a normal life. While in book 2 Darren faced his problems with being a vampire. It also shows alot of potential throughout this book. I recommend this book because of the genera it represents. It contains horror and suspense. Not all people will like it because it might spooked the reader out.

One of my favorites in the series thus far. Loving the journey Darren is taking while he learns his new life as a vampire and even makes some friends good and well bad. Love the old covers. The new ones are also good too.
