Allies of the Night (Cirque du Freak #8)
by Darren Shan
What is it about:
Darren Shan, Vampire Prince and "vampaneze" killer, faces his worst nightmare yet--school. But homework is the least of Darren's problems. Bodies are piling up. Time is running out. And the past is catching up with the hunters fast.
What did I think of it:
This series continues to entertain.
Darren is forced to go back to school. He has to be careful to not give his secrets away. I've often grumbled about the many books where for some stupid reason vampires who are ages old, voluntarily go back to school, so I really liked how this book takes the trope of a vampire going to school and makes it ridiculous.
Old friends and old enemies turn up and make Darren's life even more difficult. Someone is trying to set Darren up, but is it who you think?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and raced through it. There's a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the book,so I will probably pick up the next book soon.
Why should you read it:
It's a fun vampire read.
