• Shantastic pets

    19 September 2019

    Shansters naming their pets after characters in my books is not a new phenomenon (perhaps most famously, many years ago one of Jonathan Ross's daughters named the family cats Darren and Steve!) but I think a fan of my books called Haley might have named MORE pets after Shan creations than anyone else I've heard from. In the photos below, you can see the four adorable little critters that she's named over the years. The first three are quite straightforward, and anyone who has read all of The Saga Of Darren Shan / Cirque Du Freak series will know immediately who and why they were named after. The fourth -- Kurda -- might prove a bit more elusive, until you take into account that it looks a bit like a komodo DRAGON, then recall the events of Book 10 -- The Lake Of Souls -- and put two and two together... :-)
