Product Description

From Amazon

Following his blood-curdling adventures in A Living Nightmare and The Vampire's Assistant, half-vampire Darren Shan is settling into his day-to-day life at Cirque Du Freak, the traveling freak show he has joined. But before he can get too cozy, his vampire master, Mr. Crepsley, whisks him off to the big city for a mysterious mission. Soon, Crepsley, Darren, and Evra the snake-boy are embroiled in a bloody battle of wits between the vampire community and a mad, "vampaneze," a creature from a separate, more murderous race of vampires. Along the way, Darren meets his first girlfriend, and winds up putting her life, as well as everyone else's, in grave danger.

The latest installment of Darren Shan's bestselling saga will surely satiate his legions of bloodthirsty fans. As fast-paced and thrilling as ever, his writing will encourage even reluctant readers to devour the series. Luckily for all, it looks as though we haven't seen the last of this appealing, well-meaning (if occasionally bumbling) half-vampire. (Ages 10 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

A visit to the city leads Darren and Evra, the snake boy, to a startling discovery (blood drained corpses) and sends them on a mission to discover the foul creature responsible, in Darren Shan's Tunnels of Blood, the third installment in the Saga of Darren Shan, that began with Cirque Du Freak.

Format: Hardcover
The third installation of Darren Shan's Cirque du Freak series takes us to an unnamed city plagued by an elusive killer. Darren and his mentor, Larten Crepsley, are paid a visit from an old friend of Mr. Crepsley's named Gavner Purl, a Vampire General. After a clandestine conversation with Gavner, Mr. Crepsley announces that he must leave the Cirque for a while and go live in the city, and Darren as his assistant has to go with him. Dismayed at the idea of having to be alone all the time in a strange place, Darren convinces his best friend Evra Von to join him.
While Mr. Crepsley is away or sleeping, Darren and Evra spend time enjoying themselves in the city, going to zoos and other interesting places. Darren even meets a girl, Debbie Hemlock, who adores the fact that he's just a little strange and that his best friend is a snake-boy. Coming home from Debbie's one night just before Christmas, Darren finds Evra transfixed by a TV news show that is reporting the finding of six dead humans, all drained of their blood. Evra and Darren argue as to who the culprit is, and Darren immediately suspects Mr. Crepsley, who is never home at night. He tracks Mr. Crepsley to a slaughterhouse, prepared to kill his master, but finds out that he's fighting an enemy he never could have dreamed about. It will take every wit Darren and Mr. Crepsley have to conquer the mad murderer, as well as a lot of luck.
Darren Shan has created yet another spellbinding volume in the story of a young boy's training as a vampire's assistant. This book gets four stars instead of five because the trademark suspense and thrills usually present throughout the books is left until the end. It seems that this books serves as more of a vehicle to show Darren's growth and knowledge of humanity, rather than scare the readers.

The boys want to go so they save up their money and decide to go. Steve is Darren's best friend and he is also the one that goes and buys the ticket. They find out that they can only buy two tickets per customer. Steve buys two and throws them in the air and Darren gets one of them. They go to the freak show and in one of the acts, Darren saw a spider and wanted it so badly, but Steve was amazed about something else. Steve knew a secret about the freak that was performing with the spider. Afar the show, Steve told Darren to go without him. Darren thought about that and decided to stay and watch him from a balcony where Steve wouldn't be able to see him. He heard Steve talk to the man who performed with the spider and said that he knew that he was a vampire with the name of Mr. Crepsley. Steve asks to become a vampire, which Mr. Crepsley refuses to. Darren runs out and acts like he never heard what Steve asked for. For the next few days, he acts like he never heard of what Steve says and tries to hide from him. One day, Darren decides that he must risk his life and steal the spider. He steals it and shows it to Steve who thinks it is amazing.

After the doctors say they can't heal him, Darren decides to go talk to the vampire. The vampire says he will help if Darren becomes a vampire assistant. Darren accepts and heals his friend.

While at their stay Darren gets a girlfriend named Debbie. Darren has loads of fun with Debbie an Evra until one night, while watching TV, the police found dead people with all their blood drained from them. Evra and Darren search for the one who did it. In the Tunnels of Blood they find a new Evil that is more dangerous then they can possibly imagine. Will they live or will they die and have their blood drained like the rest?
