Praise for ‘Lord Loss’:
“Utterly unputdownable” The Times
“The master of children’s horror at his bloodcurdling best” Publishing News
Praise for ‘Lord of the Shadows’:
“Stephen King for kids…Darren Shan has brought his own brand of vampire mythology into the heads and hearts of thousands of children…Once they're hooked, kids tend to rip into the flesh of these books, quickly draining them of their life blood. The covers, with images of ghouls, creeping hands and dripping fangs are terrifying alone. “ Metro Life, Evening Standard
Cirque Du Freak
“…fast-paced and compelling book which leaves the reader hungry for more.” JK Rowling
"I read Cirque Du Freak last week. I loved it. I love the way you manage to juggle the funny with the unpleasant, the affection with the hurt. It's great storytelling.” Roddy DoyleAbout the Author:
Born in London in 1972, Darren O’Shaughnessy [writing as Darren Shan] moved to Limerick with his parents and younger brother. He returned to London to study Sociology and English then worked for a TV cable company. His first adult novel, ‘Ayuamarca’, was published by Orion in 1999. In the meantime, Darren began to write ‘Cirque du Freak’ as a 'fun side-project'. It was published in 2000 and has since met with huge success in over 30 countries around the world. He is now a full-time writer of TV scripts and novels, and his writing has been likened to Clive Barker and Iain Banks.
