#5 Cirque Du Freak #5: Trials of Death by Darren Shan

My Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

In this installment, Darren is put to the Vampires' Trials of Initiation to prove his worth as a vampire. There are five tests, and failure of any one of them will result in certain death, whether at the hands of the lethal test itself, or by being dropped onto the stakes in the Hall of Death.

So far, he's had to swim through the Aquatic Maze, struggle through the Path of Needles—a cave filled with super sharp stalagmites and stalagtites, and fight fire in the Hall of Flames. But can he make it through all the trials set forth ahead of him?

As usual, this book leaves off on an exciting cliffhanger, causing me to immediately want to pick up book 6. Since I borrowed both this one and The Vampire Prince from the library, I have it here waiting for me and think I'll start on it next, right after the Patriots kick some Charger butt!! :D
