Ocean of Blood

Okay, so if you have ever read my blog before, you know I love Darren Shan, he's a great author so I was super exited when this one came out.
Summary:Before Larten Crepsley was a vampire general...

Before he was Darren Shan's master...

Before the War of Scars...

Larten Crepsley was a teenager. And he was sick of the pomp and circumstance of fusty old vampires telling him what to do. Taking off on his own with his blood brother, Wester, Larten takes off into the world to see what his newly blooded vampire status can get him in the human world. Sucking all he can out of humanity, Larten stumbles into a violent, hedonistic lifestyle, where cheats beckon, power corrupts, and enemies are waiting. This is his story.

Okay so like I've said a million times and I'll say it a million more, I love Darren Shan. He's a great author. This book was an absolute masterpiece, from beginning to end. I really love the new characters, especially Malora, who really livens up the book [literally, she's one of the only non-vampire characters]. Shan's writing style is amazing and very vivid. I liked the way the action was described in a very calm way [just a note, this book is very gruesome].A faced paced, gritty, and epic novel, definitely one of Darren Shan's best books!
