Book 8 of the Cirque Du Freak series
by Darren Shan F S (6th+)
Darren, Mr. Crepsley, and Vancha March on still on their journey to find the vampaneze lord. They have used up some of their foretold chances at killing him. Now through the news they hear that people in Mr. Crepsley’s hometown are being murdered and it sounds like it could be a group of vampaneze who are doing the killing. The three vampires take a break from their hunt and go to find out what is happening. While in town, school officials find out that Darren is not enrolled (he looks 15 but is actually more than 20 years old) and he is forced to go to school while they try to hunt vampaneze at night. As it turns out his teacher ends up being Debbie Hemlock, his old girlfriend, all grown up. Darrren also runs into his old friend Steve who went to the very first Cirque du Freak show with him. Debbie and Steve end up joining the search and the fight against the vampaneze. When something goes wrong, Debbie is kidnapped and Steve’s motives for helping the group are looked at very closely. What will happen next? Will Debbie be saved and if so, will she stick around on this adventure? What about Steve? Why is he along for the ride? Gather all of the answers when you read Allies of the Night, book 8 in Darren Shan’s series-Cirque du Freak.
