Publisher's Summary

Time seemed to collapse…There was a sharp stabbing sensation in my stomach…Steve crowed, "Now I have you! Now you're gonna die!"

Dead if he loses - damned if he wins. The time has finally come for Darren to face his arch enemy, Steve Leopard, and fight for control of the night. One of them will die. The other will become the Lord of the Shadows …and destroy the world.

Is the future written, or can Darren trick destiny?

Ending - he must have gotten tired

What disappointed you about Sons of Destiny?

There was no real end to the story. It essentially erased everyting up to the point

What could Darren Shan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Had a real ending.

What about Ralph Lister’s performance did you like?

He was very good - all characters were real.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration and disappointment that there was no kind of wrap up - the last couple of paragraphs essentially undid the entire story.

This book is an excellent listen

I loved every minute of the story and I could not stop listening to it. I was saddened to hear when some of my favorite characters died in the books and one of my favorite things about the books is how everything was interwoven. I also loved the attention to detail in the story and the character development. Now I am saddened that the story is over, and I hope that Larten Crepsley story will make it to audible. For those who are reading this if you haven't listened to any of the other books, I urge you to listen to each book from start to finish. if these vampires were real, I would say sign me up!

faithful to itself to the end/thrilling adventure

FIRST OFF: Listen to these books, they are free with an audible subscription, otherwise you would be missing out on a marvelous adventure. This is a great send off for a great series, and is a must read after 11 others. Narrator also kept remarkable consistency in terms of remembering the tone/volume of each character's voice throughout the 12 books. Only off-putting part is when you are listening to an older man describing teenage romance, but off-putting in a funny way that doesn't take away for the story quality.

I really don't know how I feel about it

I would recommend this book series to anyone. it's a bittersweet conclusion I don't necessarily enjoy the ending but I accept it. Even in death may you be triumphant

Ralph Lister’s voice

Ralph Lister’s voice is amazing and embracing, I hope at some point he does The Saga of Larsen Crepsley at some point.

Amazing!

This book brings good closure to the amazing series of Cirque du Freak. The author Darren Shan has kept me interested through out the entire series and has definitely closed on a high note. Ralph Lister has done an outstanding job in narrating the story capturing the personality of each character with unique voicing. Absolutely entertaining and a very good listen for anyone of any age. 5 🌟
