Hidden in the Shelves is a feature where I show off a discovery (or rediscovery) that I came across while shelving books for work.
Cirque Du Freak: A Living Nightmare by Darren Shan
In the tradition of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot, Cirque Du Freak is the frightening saga of a young boy whose visit to a mysterious freak show leads him on a journey into a dark world of vampires. Filled with grotesque creatures, murderous vampires, and a petrifying ending, Cirque Du Freak will chill, thrill, and leave readers begging for more.
Summary from Goodreads. I read this a long time ago. I think it appealed to me because I was still into Goosebumps and Fear Street books. Whatever the case, I picked up and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I must have read this shortly after it was published because I remember wanting to read more but the other books weren’t out yet. My tween self couldn’t handle that wait so I lost interest in the series. I’d probably read another book or two in the series if I didn’t have hundreds of other books I want to read.
