’We’re masters of the macabre ...agents of mutations. Lords of the surreal.’ THE SAGA OF DARREN SHAN BOOK 2 Darren joins the vampire， Mr Crepsley， as his assistant and they return to the Cirque du Freak. There， Darren makes friends with the snake-boy， Evra Von (who knows what Darren is) and a local boy， Sam， and RV， an eco-warrior and animal lover (who do not). Darren begins to enjoy his life among the Cirque performers as the youngest half-vampire in existence， but he defiantly refuses to drink human blood -- the whole idea sickens him -- and he tries desperately to cling on to the part of him which is human. Darren comes face to face with pure evil in the form of Mr Tiny， the leader of the Little People who join the Cirque du Freak， and who eat anything -- including human flesh. When he discovers animal bones， RV frees the wolf-man from his cage -- and no-one could possibly guess how truly terrible the whole effect would be. The Vampire’s Assistant follows some of the amazing characters from Cirque du Freak， and also introduces some more who truly blow the imagination.
What if you were an unwilling vampire? You needed to drink human blood to stay alive， but you weren’t some horror-flick villain; you were you， born human--a nice person， even. Thus is the dilemma of the young narrator-protagonist， Darren Shan， in this tremendously suspenseful， oft-sickening sequel to Cirque Du Freak: The Saga of Darren Shan. In the first book， Darren becomes a vampire’s assistant to save the life of his friend Steve. In order to do so， he has to fake his death， get buried alive， and head out--half-human， homeless， and friendless--into the world. The Vampire’s Assistant chronicles his new lonely life as a half-vampire， pumped with the cursed blood of his vampire guardian， Mr. Crepsley. Darren has much to learn about his freshly supernatural state. He doesn’t grow fangs， for instance， like he thought he might. And he can’t change shape or fly. Garlic just gives vampires bad breath... And they eat bagels. Some of the hardest lessons of all come when he joins the traveling freak show Cirque Du Freak， the show that got him and Steve in trouble in the first place. Readers won’t be disappointed by this fast-paced， gory， but strangely amiable sequel. In fact， the plot is much better paced than the first and the dialogue far more natural. Deadly pythons， a snake boy， Cormac Limbs (bite off his finger and it grows back!)， and an entire cast of dreadfully creepy characters offer excitement beyond expectation. Along the way， we come to really like Darren， who will do absolutely anything for a friend. British author Darren Shan promises more adventures in 2002. (Ages 10 and older) --Karin Snelson
