Synopsis

Ocean of Blood by Darren Shan

The epic tale of the vampire Larten Crepsley continues. The question is - how far can Larten go... alone? Free from their mentor Seba Nile, Larten Crepsley 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...

Reviews

Praise for the Larten Crepsley Series:

His writing is slick, his dialogue sharp and clever, his plotting immaculate. His books ooze with the kind of creepy, dark atmosphere and powerful characters that young teenage readers lap up. Shan is honing his craft with every book, and I look forward to the next gore-fest with relish. Irish Independent

Forget Stephen King, this author's the master of scaring children. The Big Issue in Scotland

A tantalising start to the series and a must-read for Darren Shan fans. Books Quarterly
