I have to press the issue again regarding books that really not scary but they are considered as horror.

Title: El tenebroso cirque du freak

Darren Shan was born in in London. Darren Shan is such a cool and likeable character.

That ending really hit hard as an “adult” now much more than it did as a kid when death meant little to me. I might have to see where this all leads to. Blood, vampire, freaks, and even a taste of death! Regardless of the shallow plot it still made me wonder what could happen next now that view spoiler [ Darren has been turned into a vampire tehebroso spoiler ] I would recommend this to the younger audience, or someone who really wants a fast read that would neither leave you with satisfaction nor hate.

I thought Darren had a very good relationship with his family, and I really liked how he was so close and loving with his younger sister, Annie.

El Tenebroso Cirque Du Freak

What was that too much for the kids? In the tradition of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot, Cirque Du Freak is the frightening saga of a young boy whose visit to a mysterious freak show leads him on a journey into a dark world of vampires. Breanna It depends on the edition you have. Do NOT judge a series by its first book. Upon rereading inI give the first one 4 stars.


The most amazing spider in the world and there was just one, all-consuming thought to run through Darren’s head, I must have her. However, I can see children and some adults who like eerie, yet fun little vampire suspense tales targeted towards older children, really getting a kick out this story.

When Darren shows Steve the spider, the spider bites Steve and only Mr.

Just pointing it out. What is it about?

Darren, being the ever inquisitive boy, lingers in the shadows to listen to the exchange, where he hears Steve lay out his life story and beg the vampire to change him into one of them. Easy to read and engrossing.

El Tenebroso Cirque Du Freak : Darren Shan :

An extreme freak show. The vampire refuses, for rather interesting reasons, and Steve makes a vow to destroy him one day. Although it was never fream, he found himself focusing more on novels than on short stories. Here’s my take on things: I thought I would get a slightly scary story, but the Series of Unfortunate Events was much more bang for my buck on the creepiness scale, and at least if things didn’t make sense in that series, that’s because it wasn’t supposed to.


Crepsley and his amazing spider, are what really gets the story going. I have read so many great reviews, and it was even endorsed by my favorite author, JK Rowling. This book was sinister, dark, evil and at times quite funny. It was like this whole thing was planned from the beginning, but even Mr Crepsley admitted that he hadn’t considered anything special about Darren until after he had stolen the spider The writing was really good.

His books have been children’s bestsellers in America, Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and other countries. I don’t even like cirvo I went to a few as young child, but they are scary and sad to me.

There’s also a scene in the beginning that doesn’t get explained and I’m curious to see where things go with that. I was waiting for dinner and I actually groaned on a part that was pretty shocking and outrageous. That being said it does have faults one of which is maybe I’m a bit out of the age range for this book.

So I am not trying to sound judgmental or snooty. It may deal with blood but its well freaak it. As of Octoberthe book has been published in 33 countries around the world, in 30 different languages.
