Vampire assistant 2 movie release date
The Vampires Assistant (Cirque du Freak #2) by Darren ShanI didnt know what to read next, even though Blood Song was already on my currently reading list, so I decided to rearrange a part of my bookshelf. I noticed book 3 lying around with a couple of other random books. I then had a slight feeling of wanting to continue on with the series. I heard nothing but great things, but book 1 managed to disappoint me. Setting the bad past experience of book 1 aside, I decided to read the book 2 and decide after if I would finish the series or not. Despite the 3 star rating I gave this, I have to admit that I cant wait to finish all of the books in the series.
This can be considered one of those YA-horror books that you shouldve read when you were actually a young-adult. Im turning 20 this year, so I didnt find anything creepy about this novel. What I liked though would be the coming-of-age feeling it had. I like reading about an adventure of a kid growing up, so this series might be the thing to read, and hopefully resurrect the YA genre for me. Ive given up on the genre way too long ago, but I still try to read a few of them once in a while and see if something floats my boat. This is one of those boat floaters, and Im glad I continued on.
This second novel was way superior to the first one. All introductions aside, it was a great novel of adventure. The writing was okay for me, it didnt have any major issue so I dont have much to complain about. The plot was also consistent, and the latter parts had a good amount of action. I liked reading about how the main character had to make important life decisions. Hopefully he grows older in the next novels, because I would like to see the possible development of the main character.
While reading this, I remembered an episode from Fairly Odd Parents wherein Timmy Turner joined the circus for a day, but ended up missing his family so he decided to go home. This series seems like that at first, but the main character didnt go back, he became a full member of the circus. I would love to read more about his adventures with Cirque Du Freak, and thankfully there are 10 more books in the series.
3/5 stars. Nothing spectacular, but its one of the few YA series that managed to catch my attention. Im sure the author has more tricks up his sleeves in the next novels.
Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
The film industry is tough. Everyone who has ever tried to have a successful career in film knows that it involves a lot of self-hustle, determination, confidence and most importantly a backup plan. Getting a film made can require you to have to jump through hoops, compromise your values and in some cases, leave behind everything you know.
Studios love franchises — if the first film does well, any further films come with a ready-made fandom and a solid chance of success. Franchises based on books are even better — they proven, successful concepts and complete storylines ready and waiting to make money. Franchises also have so much more scope to them — characters can be developed and introduced over multiple films, plotlines can build slowly to a climax, and there is space to really explore different ideas. In short, franchises are fantastic for everyone… as long as they take off. One of the most frustrating things that can happen with a franchise is seeing it end before its time. For many book-based franchises, it can be heartbreaking to see your favorite characters put to rest before their stories reach the end.
He had liked books that scared him, but found his choices limited and often ended up with authors like Stephen King, who were hard to read. The story is narrated by Darren Shan, who is living a fairly contented and ordinary life until a visit to the strange and wonderful Cirque Du Freak brings him face to face with a supernatural world. From then onwards, vampires and assorted strange beings make regular appearances: parents in South Carolina are going to have a field day! Nasty things cannot be shut back into the coffin at the end of the episode. In real life bad things happen. Cirque Du Freak is the first of a series, but the author has already written the next eight books and plans to write 24 books or so in all.
The film received mixed reviews and was a commercial failure. During the performance, Steve recognizes one of the troupe's members, Larten Crepsley, as a vampire, prompting him to try to find Crepsley after the show. Simultaneously, Darren, fascinated by Crepsley's spider, Madam Octa, impulsively steals her. Before he can leave, he is forced to hide as Crepsley returns to his room. Steve arrives, begging to be made into a vampire, but Crepsley refuses after tasting Steve's blood, which he says "tastes of evil". When Crepsley realizes that Madam Octa has been stolen, Darren flees from the theater with Crepsley hot on his trail. He gets away only when the mysterious Mr.
