Comments: Before you read this book, I recommend to read a book called The Vampire Assistant Series because these books is related to this book. I thought this book was really sad because Larten lost everything he had and he became a vampire. I liked Larten when he killed Trez because Trez was the killer of Vur and I thought he shouldn’t be alive anymore. I highly recommend this book because Darren Shan Series have little different taste than other books. If you start reading it, I bet you won’t stop it.
