Review - Darren Shan has created yet another gory tale, but this time he added in a dash of romance to Darren Shan has created yet another gory tale, but this time he added in a dash of romance.
Tunnels of Blood was, in my opinion, the best so far in the series. It introduced some new characters into the story. Murlough was one of those new characters. And the best character of this book I think. Murlough is the villain on this book, but he is the good kind of villain. Debbie is the other new character and the love interest of Darren. She was the missing piece to the puzzle. She is the reason this book was better than the others.
This book had just enough romance to even out the gross-out factors. In the other books it was really lacking in the romance factor.
Darren Shan keeps his story's fresh and fast paced. A wonderful read.
