They get attacked by a bear and find the trail left by some vampaneze on the mountain. They must stay clear of the vampaneze, deal with the bear, and survive the cold in order to make it to vampire mountain where Mr. Crepsley will explain to the vampire princes why he blooded someone so young. Will they survive their journey to Vampire Mountain without meeting any of the vampaneze and what will happen to Darren if they make it? Read Cirque du Freak: Vampire Mountain (book 4) by Darren Shan.
