About
Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare:

In the tradition of Stephen King's
Salem's Lot, Cirque du Freak: A Living Nightmare 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. Darren and his friend Steve are mesmerized by the fantastic and disturbing Cirque du Freak show, but when they get caught up in a deadly trap, Darren must make a deal with the only person who can save him. And that person is not human and only deals in blood... A Living Nightmare is the compelling saga of a young boy's journey into a dark world of vampires. Filled with grotesque creatures, murderous vampires, and an unexpected ending, Cirque du Freak will chill, thrill and leave readers begging for more.
