Following on from the hugely successful Birth of a Killer, Darren Shan is back with the follow up novel from his four part series, The Saga of Larten Crepsley. This new four part saga brings the reader on a journey that spans centuries and continents. It follows the adventures of Seba Nile, Larten Crepsley and Wester Flack as they continue on their journey through life free from their mentor. The book is part of the ever popular vampire theme that has readers of all ages hooked. The book leaves the reader on an eerie cliff-hanger, making imaginations run into overload as Larten must decide what kind of vampire he wants to be. But fear not, you won’t be kept in suspense for long. Keep an eye out for book three in the saga, the spookily named Palace of the Dammed, coming to a shelf near you in October 2011.
