The pursuit begins...
Darren Shan, the Vampire Prince, leaves Vampire Mountain on a life-or-death mission. As part of an elite force, Darren searches for the Vampaneze Lord. But the road ahead is long and dangerous -- and lined with the bodies of the damned.
This is reserved for CdnBlueRose, who originally took Tunnels of Blood (book 3) from the Paranormal VBB, but then received the first 6 books of this series in the series swap. Since she no longer needed Tunnels, I sent it to Shaunie instead, and offered her book 7, Hunters of the Dusk instead. (And plan to send Allies of the Night (book 8) as an RABCK along with it.)
But now Mr. Tiny has informed them that was simply the most likely outcome. For it now appears that there are four chances for the vampires to avert the course of destiny and save their race, three of which will occur within the next twelve months. Three vampire hunters have been named as the only ones who can hunt the Lord of the Vampaneze and take responsibility for the future of the vampire clan. Darren Shan and Larten Crepsley are two of those three, the third of whom they are to meet on the road. So after spending the last six years inside Vampire Mountain, Darren and Mr. Crepsley hit the road again, accompanied by Little Person Harkat Mulds, to hunt down the Vampaneze Lord and save the vampires.
This was another fast-paced and quick read in the Saga of Darren Shan. I love how the author always includes a prologue at the start of each book to bring you back up to speed with past events. This is particularly useful if, like me, you've gone several months or even a year since reading the previous book. So after that quick little refresher, I was off and running with another great Darren Shan story. Book 8 seems to pick up right where this one left off so I'll be diving right into that one now too. :-)
This is now reserved for CdnBlueRose.
