5.0 out of 5 stars Full of mystery, mayhem, and betrayal Sept. 17 2004
By KidsReads - Published on Amazon.com
Forget the mad animals that want to trample Darren Shan. Forget fires and life as a Vampire Prince. In the latest installment of Darren's quest to find and kill the Lord of the Vampaneze, he has to face his most frightening challenge yet: algebra.

Darren, Mr. Crepsley, and Harkat Mulds have returned to the city they first visited while hunting the mad vampaneze Murlough in TUNNELS OF BLOOD. They hunt vampaneze at night and sleep during the day --- until a school inspector visits Darren and tells him that if he doesn't enroll immediately at the Mahler School, the police will come after him!

Just in case going to school wasn't unnerving enough, Darren encounters two very important people from his past. They join him in his hunt for the Lord of the Vampaneze, and with Vancha March --- an unconventional but fiercely loyal Vampire Prince --- their small army heads for the sewers to stop a series of human murders. In the course of their fight, Darren discovers that someone he thought was a friend is in league with the enemy, and he has to think fast --- and act faster --- in order to save himself and those who are helping to save the fate of the vampires.

Mystery, mayhem and betrayal form the latest high-speed chapter in Darren Shan's vampire saga. Darren Shan isn't known for sparing the gory details, so for fans of a good thrill, this book is for you. Not recommended reading before bedtime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Darren Goes Back to School Jan. 25 2005
By Jarrod T Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Darren Shan writes another great book in the series of wonderfully interesting Cirque Du Freak books. Allies of the Night satisfies fans of the series, yet once again leaves the reader wanting more, more, more.

Shan presents his young protagonist with another twist. Darren and Mr. Crepsley go back to Mr. Crepsley's hometown, and Darren has to go to school. There are lots of fishy circumstances that require the vampaneze hunter to go to school, and he runs into too many familiar faces, but that is all part of the genius of Darren Shan.

For those who claim the author is without skill, I say Charna's guts! You just don't get it. This series continues to be all readers can think about until. . .

the next installment--Killers of the Dawn

I read all 12 books in this series and actually ordered the last 4 from England because I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.

Shan's unique perspective on vampires makes this series fun for those who like vampire stories and those who do not. Shan is truly talented.

My 12 year old son is not an one who reads for the general pleasure of reading. However, he loves this series! He discovered the series when there were only 4 books. Since then we have waited eagerly for each new book. I have ordered each from Amazon so it can be delivered as soon as it is available. I hope the author keeps writing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! May 26 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Darren, Mr. Crepsley and Hakart return to Mr. Crepsley's hometown, first seen in the Tunnels of Blood. Strange bizarre death have occurred their. They fear the vampaneze are there.

Late one night a man shows up at their hotel room wondering why Darren is isn't in school. Someone had forged their signatures and enrolled him into school. Mr. Crepsley warns Darren that this is a trap, but Darren goes back to school to find out what is going on.

Darren gets a shock of his life when one of his teacher is Debbie Hemlock, his girlfriend in Tunnels of Blood. She recognizes him and demands to know what is going on. He lies to her several times, covering up that he is a half-vampire.

As Darren tries to fight the vampanese, a even bigger enemy is in the city, his childhood friend, Steve - all grown up and wanting revenge!

This is an exiting installment in the series. I couldn't put it down. In my opinion the best book in the series was the third book, Tunnels of Blood, because the emotional connection between Darren and Debbie. It was a smart idea of the author to bring Debbie and Steve back.

I wasn't crazy about this one. I did not like the whole Debbie thing, I don't get why bring her back, makes the story so cheesy (sp?).
