May 14, Totoro rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oct 15, Miss Ryoko rated it liked it Shelves: Oooh, the action heats up in the second volume of Cirque du Freak the manga! I'm really enjoying reading the story as a manga and enjoy the great illustrations. Still, Mr. Crepsley looks awesome! I really like the way Takahiro-san imagined him and drew him! Poor Darren is going through a lot, and starts to see a new beginning as a half vampire in this volume, but quickly, heartbreak is waiting for him at the end.
And will he ever agree to drink human blood? The best part about this I finished Oooh, the action heats up in the second volume of Cirque du Freak the manga! I finished reading it while waiting in line to get into the Miley Cyrus concert! There were a lot of emotions in this volume, and I definitely teared up. I really am enjoying the characters and the story. I think this story is most likely best told in graphic novel format. I like that Takahiro-san is not afraid to get a little gory with his artwork, and I definitely like the creep factor he brings to it.
It's a shame I was excited about Miley Cyrus Like what my heart. How dare you. That was incredible. I can vaguely remember where it altered from the book but it was done perfectly. It was just so true to the book, in essence and in content.
Yes like I said there were a couple of changes but it was in beautiful. No the art isn't my favourite but it's growing on me. I really like how they did the Larten and Darren scenes and Sam Grest is a precious child that needs saving. But oops too late. Dec 07, Viridiana Ruiz added it.

In this book, Darren, being a half-vampire, has trouble making friends, with his powers always negatively impacting the situation. Because of this, Larten gets the idea to go back to the Cirque.
Here, Darren meets Evra Von, the snake boy, and becomes friends with him. I believe this book also introduces Desmond Tiny, but I'm not really sure. Anyway, we also meet two new humans, Sam Grest, a kid, and R. Reggie Veggie, A eco warrior. Because Sam was excited about the circus, Darren gave h In this book, Darren, being a half-vampire, has trouble making friends, with his powers always negatively impacting the situation. Because Sam was excited about the circus, Darren gave him tickets for him and R.
However, Sam wants to be part of the circus now, so Darren says to him he can't, so he wouldn't become a half vampire like he was. Then we see R. Because of this, Darren drinks his blood to preserve his spirit, but wouldn't do it before because he didn't like human blood.
Anyway, the book was quite nice. Mar 03, Cassey rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Tinny, es un personaje muy misterioso que parece estar al tanto de los movimientos y la vida de Darren, y aparece ocasionalmente en el cirque du freak. I definitely recommend reading the books before the manga series, there's a lot of info you don't get but my brain just filled in the blanks because of my knowledge of the books.
Like any adaption, some of the characters I really liked the look of and others felt way off base I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Mr Crepsley that looks right in terms of how I've pictured him since a child Darren and Evra don't necessarily look how I picture them, but I really like the way they've been broug I definitely recommend reading the books before the manga series, there's a lot of info you don't get but my brain just filled in the blanks because of my knowledge of the books.

The gruesome scenes haven't been watered down, which I very much appreciate Mar 05, Evelyn rated it really liked it Shelves: That was awful!
But I can see why this had to be a point in the story. A couple of the plot holes I pointed out earlier were filled in too.
As for Steve, no appearance. This series has 12 volumes and is based on the Darren Shan novel series Cirque du Freak. Feb 23, Christina rated it it was amazing.
I personally really enjoyed reading the book. There were a lot of exciting and scary parts in the book. The Cirque was always travailing and they met a lot of different people wherever they went. I really enjoy the authors style of writing, Darren writes a lot of good books.
I'm looking forward to another great book by Darren. Mar 09, Hannah Belyea rated it really liked it Shelves: Darren is back, and this time his choices while living amongst Cirque Du Freak could mean life and death for those he cares most about.
Be prepared for more suspense and surprises as the world of monsters come calling! Nov 02, Ethan Garcia rated it it was amazing. Cirque Du Freak By: Darren Shan was extremely well. This volume was very dark and grim compared to the first. I love how they implemented the way of being a vampire and the introducing of lots of new characters.
I love ending and how being a vampire isn't so bad. I would recommend this book to the people that like horror and twist. This book was definatly one of my favorites. Jul 15, Kayla Hays rated it really liked it. I liked this book better than the first one. The one thing that drives me crazy about the author, is he uses the word "poisonous" where he should be using the word "venomous". Nothing irritates me more than when an author doesn't do their research beforehand.
Jul 28, Sam Chapman rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a great reread of the story. The last of the mangas I could find and that's ok. I loved the story but same as the last one, the art was too cartoon-y. If I can find the rest of the series on manga at my library I will pick them up. Mar 29, Mari rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was great to see the more emotional moments reproduced.

Dalton then tacks it to the schoolboard and starts explaining to the class at large about the concepts of freak shows and how horrible and evil these fake circuses run by con men were. Darren then asks him if he thinks it is real and he is told by Mr. Dalton it most likely is a kind of hoax, but that he hopes that nobody in the class is interested in going there. Steve adds to this that somebody must be really twisted to want to go to a freak show. But mouths to Darren: We're going.
