Another frustrating TO BE CONTINUED Someone needs to explain to me why I paid 8 for a book that didn t have an ending to it Honestly, it didn t have a beginning either because that was in book 4 Vampire Mountain It s just the next installment in one long book you have to read one part at a time I bitched about this when I reviewed Vampire Mountain Maybe it s just me but when I pay for a novel I think it should be a full NOVEL with a beginning, middle and an end Isn t that what I pa (((EPUB))) ↡ Trials of Death ⇬ The trials seventeen ways to die unless the luck of the vampire is with you Darren Shan must pass five fearsome Trials to prove himself to the vampires clan or face the stakes of the Hall of Death But Vampire Mountain holds hidden threats Sinister, potent forces are gathering in the darkness In this nightmarish world of bloodshed and betrayal, death may be a blessing Trials of Death Cirque du Freak 5 , Darren ShanTrials of Death is the fifth book in The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan It is part of the Vampire Rites Trilogy, consisting of books four through six in the 12 book saga It was first published by Collins in the United Kingdom in 2001, and in the United States in 2003 Darren Shan is about to take the Trials of Initiation, a series of tests that vampires were forced to take part in during years gone by, to prove himself to the Princes Curren Trials of Death Cirque du Freak 5 , Darren ShanTrials of Death is the fifth book in The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan It is part of the Vampire Rites Trilogy, consisting of books four through six in the 12 book saga It was first published by Collins in the United Kingdom in 2001, and in the United States in 2003 Darren Shan is about to take the Trials of Initiation, a series of tests that vampires were forced to take part in during years gone by, to prove himself to the Princes Currently, it is only used for vampires who want to become a general, or for those who wish to demonstrate their strength However, Darren Shan is required to endure the trials to earn the respect of the entire vampire race for his mentor Mr Crepsley s impulsive decision to turn him Darren is mostly trained by the games master of the Mountain, Vanez Blaze 2006 1394 208 9789644177590 21 WHAT..THEHELL AREYOUFUCKINGKIDDINGMEHOW THE HELL CAN A BOOK END WITH SUCH A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE CLIFFHANGER OH MY GOD JESUS LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL AND EVERYTHING NO NO NO NO I AM A MESS RIGHT NOW WHAT..THEHELL AREYOUFUCKINGKIDDINGMEHOW THE HELL CAN A BOOK END WITH SUCH A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE CLIFFHANGER OH MY GOD JESUS LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL AND EVERYTHING NO NO NO NO I AM A MESS RIGHT NOW This was an improvement over the previous book but not by much The plot is still going nowhere up until the last few pages, but at least Trials of Death was action packed I feel like the series has lost some of it s appeal with the lack of the Cirque background Not that the vampire society is not interesting, but it alone is not enough to maintain interest Maybe the next one will be better. What a great series Always fun, always a good mixed between action, storyline and characters evolution and some good twists to make it hard to predict where it goes I like every book of this series so far and this book deserve to benotice read even if I discover it years late I went back and forth with being disgusted by the storyline and riveted at the same time Yes, it was a weird experience Trials of Death wasn t filler ish, better than the fourth because the pacing and almost non stop action made it hard to put down Action scenes were excellent, nail grinding, detailed, spaced right Some disturbing stuff happened during the trails, especially the weird flame stuff Characters arefleshed out, seeming livelier and not imitations of their former selves t I went back and forth with being disgusted by the storyline and riveted at the same time Yes, it was a weird experience Trials of Death wasn t filler ish, better than the fourth because the pacing and almost non stop action made it hard to put down Action scenes were excellent, nail grinding, detailed, spaced right Some disturbing stuff happened during the trails, especially the weird flame stuff Characters arefleshed out, seeming livelier and not imitations of their former selves the fourth suffered from that a little, especially for Crepsley Arra is still irritating, as are a lot of the princes and other vampires following their rigid systems without the bend of common sense exceptions There is something that soured it for me I still think Darren shouldn t do the trails because of his age and half vampire status Letting a child go through all that, especially for some ancient and limited system, was a form of child abuse and that sickened me Yes, it s fiction, but still wrong in this fiction world There were a lot of torturous trials burning, almost drowning, cutting, fighting to the death with wild boars shudders The burning was the hardest to take because of the detail His hair will likely never grow back because of the permanent damage I mean, geez All this for that silly code Crepsley s outlook and rigid adherence was disappointing Apparently I mprotective of the protagonist than his mentor It s shown that these bizarre mindsets are how these strange creatures think I agreed with the one outcast of the group that there is no honor in losing your life so willingly If I were in Darren s shoes I would have started getting raged.The ending holds a nice surprising or so, and although I did see a betrayal brewing, it worked well for ending this book Even if I guessed a little of it, it leaves it open with no predictable start of how the next book will begin.Despite my annoyances with the plot s direction, it stayed exciting and earned a four star label Just LOVE this Series About the Book When we last left Darren, he was told that he would have to complete five deadly trials to prove himself a worthy vampire Not only are the trials themselves deadly, but if Darren fails in any way besides death, he will be executed It is actually after one of these trials that Darren learns about a treacherous plot that involves the vampaneze.Review This book was filled with action and kept me turning the page especially near the end Darren s trials were interesting and even t About the Book When we last left Darren, he was told that he would have to complete five deadly trials to prove himself a worthy vampire Not only are the trials themselves deadly, but if Darren fails in any way besides death, he will be executed It is actually after one of these trials that Darren learns about a treacherous plot that involves the vampaneze.Review This book was filled with action and kept me turning the page especially near the end Darren s trials were interesting and even though you knew he wouldn t die he is the main character and there is sevenbooks after all , Shan still managed to throw some curve balls at you Although there were parts I didn t enjoy immensely such as the Festival of the Undead , I still didn t really hate any part of the book this time Besides, I appreciated getting to see Darren inthan his role as a half vampire It is always a plus when the author lets the every day and little affairs pop through into a book as well It always makes it seemreal, and I didn t feel like I was bogged down with these kind of details either.My favourite part was definitely the climax of this book, and I found myself unable to put it down and wondering how Darren would put a stop to it Not only is he in a fix with the vampaneze at this point, but he is also in a bit of a pickle with the vampires, which may also limit his options.I do wish that Shan went intodetails about the Guardians of the Blood and their beliefsAlthough they may not be the most imaginative creature, they are still quite striking to the imagination and Shan could have introduced another culturethoroughly into his world All in all though, I really enjoyed this book and started the next one right away the cliff hanger is a suspense like no other It may have taken a while, but this series is definitely starting to take off Pretty harrowing and brutal, this macabre fifth book in the running Cirque du Freak series continues in the vein of all those that came before it with a lot of action, a lot of blood, and a lot of fun I liked this one better than the last, as I felt it got a littleinvolved But, being a fan of the entire series, I have yet to be disappointed, at all Shan delivered darkness with Trials by Death, and I would have expected nothing less.Five Stars
