Review on BookLover In this second book, we see Larten and Wester staying with the Cubs, living life to the fullest before having to be part of the Clan and leave every human trait behind. We see Larten struggling with his life, a young Vampire who is not yet the Mr. Crepsley we met in the Cirque du Freak series. And we see him trying to keep at bay his mixed blood, his evil and terrible side. I finally forced myself to continue, and I did not regret it. I admit that the first few chapters were a bit slow, and nothing much happened action-wise.

There were twelve books in total. Zom-B, released in the UK on 27 September This is officially book 6. Archibald Lox[ edit ] On 2 April , Shan announced that he had silently released three books digitally, making up the first volume of the Archibald Lox series, a few days previously. It has also been translated and released in several other countries.

Inspired in part by The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and based in a brutal, fantastical world, it details the perilous quest of Jebel, the thin son of a respected executioner, to petition a fire god for invincibility, so that he can succeed his father. Shan has stated that this is his favourite out of all of the books he has written. Shan tweaked and slightly expanded it ten years later, and it was released as a book by the publishing group Barrington Stoke with illustrations by Zack McLaughlin.

Play on words of " manifesto " Unpublished books[ edit ] In July , Shan revealed that he had written first drafts of 53 books in total. Most of those have now been published, although there are several which have yet to see the light of day, which he plans to release in the future, most probably under his Darren Dash umbrella. There are also a few that will very likely never be published. The Cannibal King — This was originally going to be the 12th book of The Saga of Darren Shan — book 11 was originally meant to be much longer, including elements from the first half of what became Sons of Destiny.

The Cannibal King was never published because it was originally part of the planned book Saga. Shan had planned to write 18—24 books for The Saga, with half of them taking place in the future wasteworld shown in Book 10, The Lake of Souls. For reasons explained on his web site, Shan decided to end the series with Sons of Destiny, which was written and released instead of The Cannibal King. He never reveals anything that he wrote in this book, because there is a possibility that he might one day write a follow-up series to The Saga, which would take parts of this book as its starting point.

The original screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland but rewritten entirely by Paul Weitz.


Larten Crepsley

John C. Larten was the deuteragonist of the Saga of Darren Shan , as well as the main protagonist of the Saga of Larten Crepsley. Together Larten and Vur loosened the fibres of silkworm cocoons for repurposing, a job for which Traz daubed their heads with bright orange dye for easy identification. In , Traz murdered Vur while taking his anger out on the boy. Consumed with rage, Larten retalited, murdering Traz before running away. Seeking refuge in a local graveyard, Larten met Seba Nile , who he soon learned was a Vampire.


Ocean of Blood

Jeffrey Davis rated it did not like it Feb 01, He has also released the stand-alone crelsley, The Thin Executioner, and the stand-alone short novels, Koyasan, and Hagurosan. There are no happenings that grip you or keep you engaged. Ocean of Blood He runs around doing stuff, but almost everything is told, not shown. I really hope Shan uses him again because, despite his brief role, the way he snaps and loses his mind is perhaps the most horrific thing in the entire novel. Though the series thus far has been heavily focussed on male characters, Shan introduces several promising strong and interesting female characters, including the powerful witch, Evanna. So basically, I read this book being a fan of all Darren Shan books, and this book did not fail to impress me!
