The fourth and final instalment in the epic saga of Larten Crepsley – vampire, hero and victim of fate…
Just as Larten is finding a new place for himself in vampire society, and helping vampires escape the Nazi menace, horrifying tragedy falls on his own family thanks to the nefarious Vampaneze.
With his old friend Wester calling for war against the ancient enemies of vampires, Larten finds himself a figurehead of the campaign.
But there are more evil things than just the Vampaneze stirring. And soon, Larten might find himself grieving again – as he faces the worst and final betrayal…
Praise for the Larten Crepsley Series:
“His writing is slick, his dialogue sharp and clever, his plotting immaculate. His books ooze with the kind of creepy, dark atmosphere and powerful characters that young teenage readers lap up. Shan is honing his craft with every book, and I look forward to the next gore-fest with relish.”
“Forget Stephen King, this author's the master of scaring children.”
The Big Issue in Scotland
“A tantalising start to the series and a must-read for Darren Shan fans.”
