Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The Cirque Du Freak saga continues with book four, Vampire Mountain by Darren Shan. Here, fans find Darren and Mr. Crepsley on a trip to the very seat of the bloodsuckers' empire, where a meeting with the Vampire Princes puts Darren in a precarious position. Ages 10-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Darren Shan, the loquacious vampire's assistant, narrates another blood-and-guts tale. Having tracked a horror-movie-stereotype vampire in their previous adventure, Darren and his master, Larten Crepsley, take another hiatus from the bizarre circus of the series title to make a pilgrimage to the Halls of Vampire Mountain to meet with the generals and princes in charge. The peregrinators are accompanied by a pair of ugly, speechless Little People who carry an ominous message for the council from their "old as time itself" master, Mr. Tiny. The road is perilous, of course, and getting to their destination is only half of the problem. Darren's biggest challenge, following a run-in with a crazed grizzly bear and a foolhardy confrontation with a rare, Xena-like vampiress, comes in defending his maker, the one who inexplicably violated the proscription against blooding a child. While the previous trio of "Cirque du Freak" books could each relatively stand alone, this fourth entry marks a definite transition, a critical segue into adventures to come that will revolve around Mr. Tiny's foreboding and Darren's impending Trials of Initiation (book nine is already in the works in the U.K.). The book ends with a "to be continued-" teaser along with an excerpt from the next book.

This book may not live up to some people expectations after the first three instalments of "the saga of Darren shan", Being from England i have read this book (and all the saga up to book 8...) and, although most people would admit that this ks not exactly a high point for the serise, it is still a good book in its own right, and set up the next two books in the "vimpire mountain" trilogy very well, introduseing new idea and people who will become vital to how the saga pans out. If you read this book over I'm sure you will be surprised that it is not half as bad as you remember! A word of warning however... if you feel this book ends on a cliffhanger, you will not BELIVE the ending to book 5 (trials of death)! it will be a long hard wait between that and book 6 9The vampire prince.) belive me!

In this book Darren goes to be put in front of the vampire princes. When he has to make the journy to the moutain he comes face to face with a bear and wolves. He has to prove to the princes and his mentor that he can be a vampire and most imporant he has to prove to himself that he can belive in himself.
I personaly love the series. I recomand that u read them in oder startin with "Cirque Du Freak; A living nightmare". It keep me readin till late at night this isn't as action packed as some of them but it has some good parts in it.
The worst part is it leaves u just waitin for the next book so i haven't got the 5th one yet but i would oder it with the 4th one if u have read the first 3!!!!!!God Bless America!<3!!!=D

I have read all of the books in the series up to this point. Their short and pleasant, so I might keep up with them even if they are written a bit sloppily. I'm just a bit weiry of them at this point. Just about nothing ever actually happen everything is spoken of. Basically,the book plays out like this:
Darren: Mr. Crepsley, Why is the sky blue?
Mr. Crepsley: Well, Daren...
Daren: Mr. Crepsley, how come blood is thicker than water?
Mr. Crepsley: Well, Daren...
Come on! How can a book be propelled by a kid asking a bunch of questions?! You really can tell that this writer is new. He's clueless sometimes. It's like a history lesson! I'm in no hurry to read the other books in this series.

I liked this book because they put in every little detail. It also gives you little hints in each chapter that tells what is going to happen. It also has a whole series of books so you know that there is more that is going to happen.
The best part of the book was when they just arrive at vampire mountain and they meet Seba Nile. First they tell about how they caved vampire mountain. Then Seba tells how Mr. Crepsey was when he was Darren's age and Mr Crepsey denies all of it. The most vivid thing was when Darren is around you always know that your going to find out alot of stuff becuase darren asks alot of questions.

Shan continues to improve with each book in this series. In this book, Darren treks to Vampire Mountain with his vampire mentor, Mr. Crepsley. They encounter diffciulties of course, and meet some old friends. The story moves well, as do the rest in this series.
At the Vampire Mountain, Darren must face the Trials of Death. and this is my only disappointment with htis book. The book ends at the beginning of the trials. I immediately ran out and bought book 5 and am reading it now.

"Vampire Mountain" is the fourth book Darren Shan's great series, "Cirque Du Freak." This book startes six years after book four and chronicles the journey of Darren and Mr. Crepsley to Vampire Mountain. The most excitment happens near the end of the book. Since this book is the first of a three part storyline, the TO BE CONTINUED... at the end is the most cliff-hanging ending I've ever read in this series. I can not wait till April of 2003 when the next book will come out.

This book is the worst book in the Saga so far. There is none of the action and confrontations that were in the first 3 books and in the next 3. Darren journeys to Vampire Mountain with Mr. Crepsley, some wolves, Little People, and an old friend. The only good part of this book was the fight with the bear (I will say no more). If you're into this series, you must read this book to keep up, but if not STAY AWAY!!!
