Product Description

“Once I was an ordinary boy, but the Cirque Du Freak changed all that. Now I’m a vampire’s assistant. By day I help out in camp, by night I’m part of the act. Even though I hate it, I’ll have to drink blood to survive. If I don’t, Mr Crepsley says I’ll die…”

Darren has become a vampire – and a member of the Cirque Du Freak. But what does the future hold for him? Will he learn to enjoy performing as the youngest half-vampire in existence? And how long can he go on refusing to drink blood?
