Onto the book, it was definitely action packed all the way until the end. Darren Shan is a half vampire and half human. He is fast, strong and tougher than you or I. Somebody sets him up to go to school at Mahlers and a counselor comes and asks to talk to his parents. Since he’s been taken into a clan of vampires, he does not live with his family. He lives with Mr. Crepsley,a smart professor-like man, and Harkat, a grey-skinned tiny man who is very foolish. Darren went to school and found an old friend named Debbie Hemlocks. They were once dating before Darren was part vampire. Back then, he had to drop out of school and battle vampanezee. Now, he has a class with her, but not like your thinking. She’s the teacher!

He had figured his life was at the stop sign, when before he knew it again something had scared the vampaneze off of him. Bows were laying where the vampaneze was. Tall man walked over to him and put the bow to Darren’s chest. Then, he recognized the man. He found out that it was an old bud of his. Steve took him to his hotel and cleaned him up. When they were finally relaxed, Steve told him to call Debbie and tell her to get out of those apartments. After a long debate she agreed. The next morning new reports saying her apartment neighbors were all killed and drained of blood.
