Series: The Saga of Larten Crepsley Author: Darren Shan Publisher: Harper Collins Children's Books Publication Date: 28 April 2011
Synopsis: From Amazon
The epic tale of the vampire LartenCrepsley continues. The question is – how far can Larten go… alone?
Free from their mentor Seba Nile, LartenCrepsley and Wester Flack join the Cubs – wild young vampires with little respect for human life, and a taste for mindless enjoyment.
For the Cubs, everything is easy. But nothing has ever been easy for Larten, and soon fate throws his life into another spin. With dark paths to travel, Larten finds himself far from the Vampire Mountain and its rules. A long way from home, sick and alone, he must decide what kind of vampire he will be. Whether he will stand firm, be true to his master and his princples – or whether he will lose himself in blood…
This is such a fun idea I had to share it. Here is the press release from Harper Collins:
