I love this book, but it was too short. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books by Darren Shan.
I saw the movie first and really enjoyed it, but now that I read the book, I can see why it was not popular, the book is way better!

I started this series when I was 10 years old. I had acquired a love for horror novels and vampires. I actually stopped reading them at the 9th book. 6 years later I returned to reading it and I found that yes Darren Shan does have a spectacular talent for creating a fast paced book that is nothing but intense however, at the end of each exciting chapter he uses a "!" which I found annoying and he also uses both dialogue in order to describe a scene and at times dialogue isn't really necessary which annoyed the crap out of me. I don't see this suitable for anyone over the age of 15. But it's a great read for younger ducks who like violence, vampires without love interests.

I guess it's pretty good. Fast-paced and intriguing but short.

Good series. It is a fast paced story. Each page will want to make you read more.

This is a good book to read there is also a movie on the first book but I wish they would make a sequel but due to the movie not being popular the sequels have not been made.

I already finished the book in less than a week. I can't remember the last reading a book that is as good as this. Book ever! I read it before I sleep and the moment I wake up.

A compelling book of noble sacrifice

This sounds silly, but is this the first book in the series? I want to start reading the series but not sure what order their in... :)
