If you are looking for a book full of vampires who are playing fair and being nice while rainbows, unicorns, sunlight, and flowers flit through the background, you've come to the WRONG PLACE!! If you are the weak of heart or are scared easily, turn around, Cirque Du Freak is not the book for you at all!

Now if you want a book full of death, blood, betrayal, heartache, action, and of course vampires! Then this is teh right choise for you! Enjoy!

An excellent addition to the series. I especially liked the plot structure - not what I was expecting at all, as it got away from the episodic formula. The ending of the book wasn't an ending at all, so I can't wait to read the next. And although Darren somewhat irritated me at the beginning of the series, I'm really starting to love him as a character.
