This is the third installment of the Cirque de Freak series. If you have read the first two books of the vampire’s apprentice then you’ll enjoy this brief read. Darren is bumbling through his role as best he can when he finds out that there is more to the vampire world than he thought. Including a society that is fractured. It will be interesting how the author takes this as we move forward through the series. I am looking forward to a deepening world as we learn more and more about this secret society.
