Another thing I liked creosley the ‘cameo’ of a famous author from history, and the actual writing style itself. This time, I’m having trouble thinking anything up besides: Arra Sails, Larten’s future vampire lover, makes a brief appearance, and she’s human!

Ocean Of Blood – Darren Shan – Author

It just feels more like an empty cash grab than anything else, like Shan was trying too hard to write something more gruesome and “adult” for more grown-up Cirque du Freak fans. A long way from home, sick and alone, he must decide what kind of vampire he will be, and whether he will stand firm, and be true to his master and his principlesor whether he will lose himself in blood.

When it is time to test themselves at Vampire Mountain and find their calling, Larten has a crisis of confidence and decides to strike out on his own. The concept of vampires being fanged and live forever doesnt make any sense and neither does the feeding method of older vampire tales.

This time, I’m hav I’ve been an almost life-long fan of Darren Shan’s books. I didn’t like how aimless Crepsley was. I’ll be waiting for book three with bated breath and a weather eye on things that go bump in the night.

The consequences of a vampire without direction or purpose are dire. I didn’t like this one as much I as I liked the first one.

Firstly, Malora, because oh, my, God! After that first encounter with the wonderful world of vampires that would live for centuries but were more like warriors than the aristocrats most books make them out to be, I was smitten with his writing.
