Is it easy to read?
Easily read, good choice for boys who are finding it difficult to choose, girls will love it too>
Anything else?
The Saga moves on to the next stage of Darren's life as a Vampire's assistant, this is his last hope to ever return to humanity, or he will be pushed even further towards the dark life of the vampires. Again Shan has come up with some imaginative plots and characters, the little person for example reveals an awful secret. He just keeps writing really good stuff!

Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
Vampire Mountain is the fourth title in the gut-wrenching saga of Darren Shan. Darren Shan and Mr Crepsley make a long and dangerous trek to the vampire's stronghold in the mountains. The trek is a test of skill and endurance one which sees Darren's vampire nature develop, and a new understanding of the mysterious blue-robed servants of the sinister Mr Tiny. Gavner Purl makes a welcome return when he joins Darren and Mr Crepsley, but they face more than the cold on their way to the vampire princes - the vampaneze have been there before them... Will Darren's meeting with the Vampire Princes restore is human nature, or turn him further towards the darkness...
