This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the young adult horror novel, Hunters of the Dusk by Darren Shan. This novel was published in July 2002 by HarperCollins with a page count of 176 pages. This book is the seventh novel in the Cirque Du Freak series. The audiobook is 4 hours & 47 minutes in length and narrated by Ralph Lister. The following overview is provided from the B&N page: The pursuit beings…Darren Shan, the Vampire Prince, leaves Vampire Mountain on a life or death mission. As part of an elite force, Darren searches the world for the Vampaneze Lord. But the road ahead is long and dangerous-and lined with the bodies of the damned.

This is a phenomenal book. I love the relationship between Crepsley and Darren. I couldn’t imagine the pressure Darren has to feel. To be so young and have so much responsibility resting on you. I like all the lore that is laying the foundation for the final novels in this series. This is the perfect next book in the series. The character development never stops, we have learned new things in this novel about characters that we have known since the beginning. I appreciate it when authors don’t give us everything about a character as quickly as possible. The slow reveal is what makes characters real to the reader. It allows for an organic development of a bond between the reader and the characters. This is a well-written novel and everything you could want out of a book in this genre. I highly recommend this book series to young adult horror and fantasy fans.

I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Chad Nathan Stotz-Gomez. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the action-adventure novel, A Demon in Silver by R.S. Ford. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
