5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The amazing manga retelling of Darren Shan's international best-selling vampire saga, with illustrations by Japanese artist Takahiro Arai.

Darren Shan is just an ordinary schoolboy - until he gets an invitation to visit the Cirque du Freak...until he meets Madame Octa...until he comes face-to-face with a creature of the night!

Soon Darren is caught up in a web of terror from which he cannot escape, with his best friend's life hanging by the finest of threads.

Darren must make a bargain to save Steve, but the only one that can help is not human and only deals in blood...The stunning illustrations and manga format give a new dimension to this ever-popular vampire saga, available for the first time in translation in the UK.

This will be a must-have for Shan fans and manga aficionados alike.

Review by

Cirque Du Freak is about a boy named Darren who loves and fascinates about spiders. His best friend Steve loves monsters and vampires. One day both of the boys decide to go to a freak show given to them by Mr. Tiny, and Darren steals a poisonous spider from one of the acts. The spider hated Steve so much that it bit him leaving Darren only one choice to save Steve's life. To become the vampire's assistant.I rate this book a 5 because i like books about Vampires and because I've also seen a movie about it.

Also in the The Saga of Darren Shan series   |  View all
