Hunters of the Dusk

By: Darren Shan

This book was great. Despite the eyes in the background the greenish color is slightly calming in an eerie way. The book is getting a bit boring thought with the same main characters and there is not as much action as before. But I guess it’s fitting to have Mr. Crepsley and Darren and another Prince go on the hunt since the series does revolve around Darren. It’s not as fast-paced but the humor makes up for it because I cracked up several times while reading.

After six years of being a Vampire Prince, Darren begins to long for the time when Mr. Crepsley, Harkat, and him were on the run in the outside world while being cooped up in Vampire Mountain. Little does he know his wish is about to be fulfilled. Mr. Tiny, leader of the Little People, soon comes knocking on the vampires’ door with words for aiding them in their war with the vampaneze. Three hunters are chosen and have the fate of the vampires in their hands as they are given four chances to kill the Lord of the Vampaneze. Mr. Crepsley and Darren are chosen and they will meet the third on their travels to defeat the Lord. They soon find themselves in grave danger but that must mean they are getting close to finding their enemies
