From the Master of Horror comes the first gripping book in the twelve book
New York Times bestselling Saga of Darren Shan. Start the tale from the
beginning in the book that inspired the feature film The Vampire's
Assistant and petrified devoted fans worldwide. A young boy named 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! Stever remains after the show
finishes to confront the vampire-- 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 the
beginning of Darren's story.
