Vampire's Assistant (the Saga of Darren Shan, Book 2) by Darren Shan

Book Description

Darren Shan has been made a half-vampire by Mr Crepsley, but the Cirque Du Freak holds more unpleasant surprises for the vampire's assistant. Darren joins the vampire, Mr Crepsley, as his assistant and they return to the Cirque Du Freak. There, Darren makes friends with the snake-boy, Evra Von (who knows what Darren is) and a local boy, Sam, and RV, an eco-warrior and animal lover (who do not). Darren begins to enjoy his life among the Cirque performers as the youngest half-vampire in existence, but he defiantly refuses to drink human blood - the whole idea sickens him - and he tries desperately to cling on to the part of him which is human. Darren comes face to face with pure evil in the form of Mr Tiny, the leader of the Little People who join the Cirque Du Freak, and who eat anything - including human flesh. When he discovers animal bones, RV frees the wolf-man from his cage - and no-one could possibly guess how truly terrible the whole effect would be.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » In this next instalment of the gripping 'Saga of Darren Shan', Darren, who is now a half-vampire, starts his life without enthusiasm. He and his vampire mentor, Mr Crepsley, return to the Cirque Du Freak where Darren makes friends with Evra Von, the snake boy and a bright but verbose local boy, Sam Guest. At the Cirque we meet the Little People, dwarfs that smell awful and keep their faces hidden beneath long blue robes. Mysterious as they are, one thing is certain - it takes more than a salad to satisfy their voracious appetites. However, cannibalism is the least of Darren's worries. A friendly eco-warrior called RV (Reggie Veggie) is concerned about the Wolfman's welfare and pits himself against the Cirque, with disastrous consequences. In the midst of such high drama, things are getting desperate for Darren. He is growing weaker and faces death, unless he can swallow his revulsion and drink human blood. The Vampire's Assistant blazes a thrilling, gruesome trail through a fascinating plot. Young readers also become emotionally entangled as Mr Crepsley regrets making Darren a half-vampire. No doubt shadowy figures in bedroom doorways round the world will be telling their pre-teens to put this book down and get some sleep. Be warned: they will disobey. They are creatures of the night, compelled to glide through Shan's nocturnal world by torchlight under the covers. (Kirkus UK)
