About this deal

There was a very successful manga adaptation of Shan's Cirque Du Freak series, drawn by the Japanese artist, Takahiro Arai. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. Fourteen months later Grubbs has been caring for Dervish in his zombie-like state, also dealing with the fear that he'll turn into a werewolf. Lord Loss purposefully assisted in stopping the demon attacks on Ireland, due to the fact that the human world was where he got his power from, through misery and sorrow. Dervish confirms to Grubbs that the Gradys are indeed cursed, only that it has been going on for centuries.

These are children who can be rude and are boisterous, they can be annoying and selfish, but they are all relatable. The story begins with Grubbs and although later many other characters are added to the series, he remains my favorite. In Bec he kills a woman by tormenting her with zombies of dead children that resembled her children that were killed by demons.

A big film buff, with a collection of more than four thousand movies at home, Darren also reads lots of comics and books, and likes to study and collect original artwork, especially comic art and impressionist and post-impressionist art.

This disturbing tale in the supernatural, zombie/horror genre has a refreshingly inventive storyline and credible and likeable protagonists the reader can really root for. When he mentally heals enough to cope, he finds himself sheltered by his long-lost uncle, a man who knows more than he's telling, but who is willing to tell it as soon as Grubbs wants to listen. Though he does have a natural sadistic streak that is ingrained in his personality, his cruelty largely comes from the fact that he literally feeds on suffering.Because of Grubbs' insults to both the game of Chess and Lord Loss himself, Lord Loss vows to make the Gradys suffer, a vow that intensifies in venom as the series progresses.

I won't spoil anymore and just say that the last half of the book is as good as the first half, and the climax is delightfully unique. The opening book in a twelve book series about vampires (titled The Cirque du Freak series in the USA, but known as The Saga of Darren Shan in the UK and the rest of the world), it attracted rave reviews and an ever-growing army of fans known as the Shansters! Grubbs figures that it's better for Bill-E to believe that Dervish is his father, since his real father is dead. This gives the book an amateurish feel, not found in the books of other authors writing fantasy for teenagers (eg.
