Stanley gazed up at the trees but it was too dark to see. There could have been a monster the size of a car up there and he wouldn't have been able to spot it.
A hundred! A thou- Oh, that was silly. There were no monsters in the trees. Monsters didn't exist.
Everyone knew that. Monsters weren't real. It was a squirrel or an owl up there, something ordinary like that. Stanley raised a foot and began to bring it down. His foot hung in the air, midstep, and his heart pounded quickly. That was no squirrel! The sound was too sharp. Something big was up there. Something that shouldn't be up there. Something that had never been up there before. Something that - Snap!
The sound was closer this time, lower down, and suddenly Stanley could stand it no longer. He began to run. Stanley was a large man, but pretty fit for his age. Still, it had been a long time since he'd run this fast, and after a hundred yards he was out of breath and had a cramp in his side.
He slowed to a halt and bent over, gasping for air. His head shot up. There were footsteps coming toward him! Slow, heavy footsteps. Stanley listened, terrified, as they came closer and closer.
Had the monster leaped ahead of him through the trees? Had it climbed down? Was it coming to finish him off? Was it? The footsteps stopped and Stanley was able to make out a figure in the darkness.
It was smaller than he'd expected, no bigger than a boy.
He took a deep breath, straightened up, got his courage up, and stepped forward for a better look. It was only a boy! A small, frightened-looking boy, dressed in a dirty suit. Stanley smiled and shook his head. What a fool he'd been! The wife would have a field day when he told her about this. The boy didn't answer.
Stanley didn't recognize the youngster, but there were a lot of new families around these days.
He no longer knew every child in the neighborhood. There was something strange about him. Something that suddenly made Stanley feel uneasy. It might have been the effect of the darkness and the shadows The sound came from directly overhead, loud and menacing. The boy leaped back quickly, out of the way. Stanley just had time to glance up and see a huge red shape, which might have been some sort of bat, falling through the branches of the trees, almost faster than his eyes could follow.
And then the red thing was on him. Stanley opened his mouth to scream, but before he could, the monster's hands - claws? There was a brief struggle, then Stanley was sliding onto the ground, unconscious, unseeing, unknowing.
Above him, the two creatures of the night moved in for the feed. Chapter two "Imagine a man his age wearing a Scout's uniform," Mr. Crepsley snorted as he turned our victim over. He patted the man's meaty legs and grunted. I watched as Mr. Crepsley searched the leg for a vein, then cut it opena small slice-using one of his fingernails. As soon as blood oozed out, he clamped his mouth around the cut and sucked. He didn't believe in wasting any of the "precious red mercury," as he sometimes called it.
I stood uncertainly by his side as he drank. This was the third time I'd taken part in attack, but I still wasn't used to the sight of the vampire sucking blood from a helpless human being. It had been almost two months since my "death" but I was having a tough time adjusting to the change.
It was hard to believe my old way of life was finished, that I was a half-vampire and could never go back. It came out in the United Kingdom on the first of March Book 1, Birth of a Killer. Book 2, Ocean of Blood. Book 3, Palace of the Damned.
Book 4, Brothers to the Death. Zom-B[ edit ] On 12 October , it was announced that Darren Shan's next series for teenagers would focus on zombies, and that the title of the series was Zom-B. There were twelve books in total. Zom-B, released in the UK on 27 September This is officially book 6. The paperback edition is out of print, but it is available in ebook format through Kindle on Amazon stores worldwide. It has also been translated and released in several other countries. And even then, with the foreshadowing and warnings, I still wasn't prepared for the ending; it still left me shaken and upset and even surprised at how wrong things went.
I was almost left with my mouth hanging open and a few tears in my eyes when the shit hit the fan. It was intense and scary and pretty much everything you'd want in this type of book.
Cirque du Freak is turning into a great, and well, I don't want to say fun series because it's horror and that's not really fun, you know? But it's entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat and I read the third book the very next night in one sitting. The characters are well-written, the world is fascinating and strange and just terrifying enough for an adult, and the story is so different from any others I've encountered that I've actually continued reading the series instead of bouncing off to something else instead.
I rarely continue on with a series but with this one I find myself opening up the next book as soon as I finish the last because I can't wait to see what will happen.
