The nightmare begins . . . Join Darren Shan's descent into the darkness with this bumper edition of Shan's first three books: 'Cirque Du Freak', 'The Vampire's Assistant' and 'Tunnels Of Blood'.
'The Saga Of Darren Shan 1: Cirque Du Freak'
Darren goes to a banned freak show with his best mate Steve. It's the wonderfully gothic Cirque du Freak where weird, frightening half human/half animals appear who interact terrifyingly with the audience. Darren - a spider freak - "falls in love" with Madam Octa - an enormous tarantula owned by the circus proprietor.
Darren determines to steal the spider so that he can train it to perform amazing deeds. But his daring theft goes horribly wrong. The spider bites his best mate and Darren has to sell his soul to an evil vampire to get the antidote.
'The Saga Of Darren Shan 2: The Vampire's Assistant'
Darren Shan was just an ordinary schoolboy - until his visit to the Cirque du Freak. Now, as he struggles with his new life as a Vampire's Assistant, he tries desperately to resist the one temptation that sickens him . . . the only thing that can keep him alive . . . But when he meets the Wolf Man something quite terrible happens . . .
'The Saga Of Darren Shan 3: Tunnels Of Blood'
When Mr Crepsley is called upon by the Vampire Generals, Darren and the snake-boy, Evra Von, leave the Cirque Du Freak and travel with him to the city. Whilst there, Darren meets Debbie and his life as a Vampire's Assistant fades into the background - until corpses are found. Corpses drained of blood . . . Suspicious of Mr Crepsley's secretive behaviour, Darren and Evra shadow him across the city and confront a creature of the night who may be the end of them all . . .
Has Darren made a fatal mistake which will cost him the lives of those he cares for? And can he escape the lure of the Tunnels of Blood?
