These books get better and better! There was so much action and so many surprises that I could not put this book down. I have a growing respect for the young half vampire and cannot wait to see what his future holds! What a great series this is turning out to be!! Gotta go because the next book is calling. ( )

This book is a very well-written book lots of twists and turns in the plot and it has a great ending very well done Darren Shan ( )

Since I knew he wasn't going to die, the book wasn't very interesting until the very end, and even then -since I've read a lot more adult books with political intrigue- it was too amateurish.

Overall though I can't help but wonder if Cirque has reached the point of blasé overextension. ( )

A very neatly plotted continuation of Vampire Mountain. Just when I was tiring of the Indiana Jones-esque and rather cruel 'trials of initiation' that Darren must survive to save his life, Shan rescues the story with a surprising twist involving the Vampaneze. I would have liked more interaction from Mr Crepsley, but the tender scene between him and Darren before one of the trials went some way towards making up for his background role in this sequel. ( )
