Darren Shan writes another great book in the series of wonderfully interesting Cirque Du Freak books. Allies of the Night satisfies fans of the series, yet once again leaves the reader wanting more, more, more.
Shan presents his young protagonist with another twist. Darren and Mr. Crepsley go back to Mr. Crepsley's hometown, and Darren has to go to school. There are lots of fishy circumstances that require the vampaneze hunter to go to school, and he runs into too many familiar faces, but that is all part of the genius of Darren Shan.
For those who claim the author is without skill, I say Charna's guts! You just don't get it. This series continues to be all readers can think about until. . .
the next installment--Killers of the Dawn
I read all 12 books in this series and actually ordered the last 4 from England because I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
Shan's unique perspective on vampires makes this series fun for those who like vampire stories and those who do not. Shan is truly talented.
