The Saga of Darren Shan: Vampire Mountain

“Mr Crepsley and me are making the long and dangerous trek to Vampire Mountain, the very heart of the vampire world. Even if we survive the journey, there’s no guarantee we’ll be welcome. And already we’ve found that we’re not the only creatures of the night on this cold, blood-drenched path…”

Darren makes an arduous journey to the vampires’ stronghold: a test of endurance that sees his vampire nature develop. Will meeting the Vampire Princes restore Darren’s human nature, or turn him further towards the darkness?
