This is the eighth title in the compelling and chilling saga of Darren Shan - the second part of the new 'Hunters' trilogy.
Maturing at one fifth the rate of a normal human, Darren has the looks of a fifteen year old, even though he is very much older. Vampire Prince and vampaneze killer he may be, but someone has shopped him to the authorities and it's time for Darren to go back to school.
But school is not the only thing Darren has to come to terms with: a surprise meeting with an old girlfriend, the death of one of the Vampire Princes, a vampire hunter with a very familiar face and a vampaneze who's not what he seems mean Darren's past is catching up with him - fast.
When the vampaneze start a killing spree Debbie Hemlock, Steve Leopard, Harkat Mulds, Vancha Marsh, Mr Crepsley and Darren Shan join forces as allies of the night. The hunt is on . . .
