Half-vampire Darren Shan, Mr. Crepsley and three of Mr. Tiny’s Little People leave the Cirque Du Freak. They journey to the Vampire Mountain. Gavner Paul, a friend Mr. Crepsley also travels with them. One of the little people reveals his real name as, Harkat Mulds, and he has a message to deliver from Mr. Tiny to the Vampire Princes.

Many dangers confront them on their way. The purple-skinned Vampaneze are close by.

The Vampire Mountain is a network of tunnels and caves where the vampires live. Darren makes friends with several of the other vampires.

The Princes and Generals weren’t impressed with Darren. They thought he was too young. Now Darren must prove himself to them.

I found the fourth book in the series to be boring and not enough action.
