Allies of the Night by Darren Shan

Do you like stories about vampires? How about gruesome scenes? If you like these things, then you will like Allies of the Night. This book would be perfect for you. It's about a 15 year old boy who is half vampire and half human and is killing bad vampires called vampanezes. I recommend this book because it will capture your attention. The story starts with a 15 year old kid named Darren Shan who is half vampire and half human. He is a good guy trying to kill the bad guys. He and two other friend vampires are on a quest. They have to kill the Vampaneze Lord and if they do not, then all of them will die. So Darren and his friends, Mr. Crepsley, Harkat and Mr. Tiny go to this city to search for vampaneze and get clues to find the Vampaneze Lord. On his quest, Darren finds two old friends. He finds his old girlfriend, Debbie, from fifteen years ago. Darren tries to get back together with her. The second friend he finds is Steve, who promises to kill all of the vampires. But they end up teaming up to kill the Vampaneze Lord. So Darren, Steve, Harkat and Mr. Crepsley go to get a vampaneze that has been killing people in the city. They find a vampaneze but they already had a plan of getting them. Because they knew there was more than one, they had to be careful. So they attack but who won the deadly fight? Who could have died in the fight? You will know this by reading the book. I recommend this book. It's a great thriller book to read. I recommend this book to any one who likes scary and gruesome stuff. There are scenes that are very descriptive in the book. They talk about bodies in the streets that have been slaughtered and placed in the city. This would be great for a teenager to read. But I would highly recommend you read the whole series of the books, from 1-10. This is book eight so if you’re interested in the book, you should start from book one to understand the series.
