El Tenebroso Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan (, Paperback) | eBay

The beginning is very sound, and sets you dk to hold your breath to see how ‘Darren Shan’ manages to get on the path that he is walking in life or afterlife I should say. But, I loved the characters. Hunters of the Dusk. While there, they witness a horrifying wolf-man who bites off a audience member’s hand literally, a wolf man; he’s half human, half man.

In JanuaryDarren’s first children’s book, Cirque du Freak was published. Finished it in one sitting. However, this school year, several of my students have been recommending books TO ME to read!

Jul 19, Sita rated it it was amazing Shelves: There were scenes where I gasped out loud. Darren saw first literary success at age 15, as a runner-up in a television script-writing competition with a dark comedy titled A Day in the Morgue.


There’s a younger sister character with a small part and I enjoyed the siblings’ relationship, ud aside from her and a few mothers, this is mostly a series about boys. I thought he was interesting because he was manipulating and there was something dark about him.

A Living Nightmare

Besides, Darren was so careful that there is no way anyone would ever found out that tenwbroso was the one who took her, right? Before they leave, Darren steal Mr. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

I thought Darren had a very good relationship with his family, and I really liked how he was so close and loving with his younger sister, Annie.

If you fall from a tree, you break some bones.

First off, I’d like to point out that the first book in this series is not very well written. I love that Shan obviously planned this as a series but still wrote a full book. It’s really neat to watch an author progress and continue to improve and also clearly enjoy his work.

I enjoy the characters in this book the boys exchanged banter and teasing constantly like normal teenagers it made them relatable and more believable too. The horror forged within this book will tell you a story long to remember and fear.

That ending really hit hard as an “adult” now much more than it did as a kid when death meant little to me. He was 17 when he finished his first novel. Yeah, I don’t think so. No real description was ever given about any of them. A vampire by the name of Mr. Cirque du freak A Living Nightmare. I believe everybody should be able to read children books of all ages and not be judge, but for this series I found myself thinking how I’m not the target audience which makes me feel really old.


A little bit of creepy, a little bit of skulking around, and a lot of fun, quirky characters are introduced in tenebdoso first novel.

Title: El tenebroso cirque du freak

I can see how this might get compared to the Goosebumps series because those were quick reads too, though I’d say this series is for a slightly older audience, but if these had been around when I was 10 or so, I would’ve cirqu them up.

The story is short and intense and doesn’t freaj a lot of filler. This is cirrque short gory book with a slightly new twist on the vampire mythos geared heavily towards male readers though I think girls won’t feel alienated at all and the inclusion of a “freak show” is something fascinating and I welcomed reading about a topic done to death heh that ended up still feeling unique.

But Lord Loss set me up for higher standards that this one didn’t quite meet.
