Summary

In the fourth book of the best-selling Cirque du Freakseries, Darren Shan begins a grueling, three-part adventure....

Darren has settled into life as a vampire's assistant and feels at home in the Cirque du Freak. But now he must leave the freak show and his friends behind. With Mr. Crepsley as a traveling companion, he embarks on a dangerous trek to the very heart of the vampire world. But they face more than the cold on Vampire Mountain - the vampaneze have been there before them.

Will a meeting with the Vampire Princes restore Darren's human side or turn him further toward the darkness? Only one thing is certain: Darren's initiation into the vampire clan is more deadly than he can ever have imagined.

Sweet BUT short

These books are expensive! The story is great but for the length they just aren’t worth it. You pay about 17.00£ or 1 credit for about 4 to 5 hours of audio. That’s just too much!
Why not give the first three books as one package? As the story for those are timeline wise one story.

Good Series, but value for money is bad.

Decided not to continue since each book is only 4.5hrs. 10-15hrs books cost the same.

Marvelous!

Loved it, gripped me from start to finish! Wish more of his work was available, such as his Demonata series! Great series nonetheless

Nothing really happens

There is no action in this book. They travel to vampire mountain and then they are just there. There are maybe two action scenes that feel forced. And I hate that Darren has to pay for Crepsley’s mistake. What sense does that make? Overall, the performance is good but this book is really only a set up for the books to come. There’s no character progression, hardly any action, and some of the decisions feel forced. Not a fan of this one.

Trek worthy

The story continues and the heat is on. But not the weather outside. Traveling to the homeland of Vampires didn't sound easy. Mysteries unravel when blood of Vampires are spilled. Who would be next? What will become of Darren in the council? Will he be welcomed? Or he and his friends have to suffer the same fate as those before him?

3½ Stars

I have been binging on this series and grown a bit tired of it. I am enjoying it and will continue on with book 5 but will be ready for a break after that. I do plan to finish all the series but at the moment finding it a bit tedious.
