I thought this book was a thriller. It kept me on the edge of my seat especially when Darren was trying to swim while the water was filling up the room. My favorite part was Darren's struggle getting to Vampire Mountain because it was scary and I enjoy reading scary stories. I liked the chapter illustrations because they look really strange. For instance, in one of the pictures a boy looked like he was trying to pull off his skin. This book is the 5th book of the Cirque du Freak series and even though I enjoyed this book, I liked the first book in the series a little better.
I recommend this book to people who like to read scary books. If you like scary books and is 9 years or older, you will enjoy this book.
