I also posted this question in the forum regarding the Cirque Du Freak series. I’m new so I’m not super sure how this forum stuff works. Anyway!

Darren -

In your fourth book of the Cirque Du Freak series, Vampire Mountain, vampire Darren and Kurda encounter the Guardians of the Blood. In Trials of Death, Kurda describes them as saprotrophs, and explains that they have inhabited Vampire Mountain for over a thousand years but no one knows where they came from.

My question is, what specifically are the Guardians of the Blood - aside from saprotrophs - and where did they come from?

Thank you!
