In the tradition of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, New York Times bestseller Cirque du Freak is the first title in the popular Saga of Darren Shan.
Darren Shan and his best friend, Steve, get tickets to the
Cirque du Freak, a wonderfully gothic freak show featuring weird, frightening
half human / half animals who interact terrifyingly with the audience. In the
midst of the excitement, true terror raises its head when Steve recognizes that
one of the performers—Mr. Crepsley—is a vampire!
Steve confronts the vampire after the show finishes—but his
motives are surprising! In the shadows of a crumbling theater, a horrified
Darren eavesdrops on his friend and the vampire, and is witness to a monstrous,
disturbing plea. As if by destiny, Darren is pulled to Mr. Crepsley, and what
follows is his horrifying descent into the dark and bloody world of vampires.
This is Darren’s story.
