Review: This is the fifth book in the Cirque Du Freak series. I bought all twelve of the books in the Cirque Du Freak series at a local second hand shop. These books cost 99p and come on a buy one get one free offer. This book was an excellent read and I found myself lost in this book for hours at a time. I could not bring myself to put this book down and stop reading. So far I am really enjoying this series and I am extremely excited to get through the rest of the books. I am curious to see if the book set comes to a satisfying end or whether they leave me wanting to know more. I would highly recommend this book boxset to anyone with an interest in Young Adult and Paranormal stories. In the near future I plan to invest in a brand new copy of these books and will be donating the old set back to a charity shop so that someone else gets to experience the wonders of Darren Shan. These books will always have a place on my bookshelves.
