    Darren Shan is an author of three book series and the fact that I happen to pick up one of his books, that is stand-alone, must be a sign. The Thin Executioner started off strong and, though I...

    Terrible. Stopped at 187 pages.

    You know, I love Darren Shan’s books. I fell in love with his vampire Cirque du Freak books when I was younger, and rediscovered my love for his writing with his...

    The Thin Executioner, by Darren Shan (whom happens to me one of my all time favourite authors) is a book I believe Shan released last year. It’s really strange writing about Darren Shan as an...

    I am a huge fan of Darren Shan's books and this was no exception even if I did feel like it didn't live up to his other work.

    Absolutely excellent coming of age novel. I devoured it quickly. The beginning was tough to read for me. The protagonist is completely unlikable. He was disgustingly shallow, arrogant, rude,...
