Book 1 - Cirque Du Freak
Are we using rifles or machine guns, sir?
Do you think they sell popcorn?
Steve, what's wrong?
Mr Crepsley? What's so great about him? All he did was play the flute.
I swear on my eyes, may rats gnaw them out if I'm telling a lie.
- [to Madame Octa] My name's Darren Shan. I've told you that before but i don't know if you heard. I'm not even sure if you can hear it now.
You bloody monster! You ungrateful creep!
It's not morning, it's the middle of the night.
You want me!
Do I have to become a vampire?
I don't like it, but my hands are tied. I just want you to know this: if I ever get the chance to betray you, I will. If the opportunity arises to pay you back, I'll take it. You'll never be able to trust me.
Am I a half-vampire now?
How did you do that?
I am the vampire lord! I am the king of the undead! I will suck the blood from all of you!
I sucked blood from one of my friends, and I almost bit my younger sister.
You're sure this will work?
I feel dead tired
To kill me? For heaven's sake, why?
Darren! Hey, Darren! have you fallen in or what?
Give my boots a polish while you're down there
You'd have to be really twisted to want to go to one of those sir, *to Darren* We're going!
It's only stealing if you don't put it back.
It's easy to say you would buy something if you know you can't
What's in your hands, Darren?
See that hill?
And if we're taken, save the last bullet for yourself.
You may have taken my leg, and you may take my life, but you'll never take my country!
We're here to see the Cirque Du Freak
How did you know my friend's name?
How much is the glass statue?
I just hope he doesn't know I know. If he does, we might never make it out of here alive...
Your real name is Vur Horston, You're a vampire
I want to join you
One day, Vur Horston, I'll track you down and kill you for rejecting me!
Why have you been avoiding me?
Then how did you know I was talking about Mr Crepsley?
I'm not evil!
Take that back or so help me, I'll jerk your head off and-
You ...you ... You imbecile! You lunatic! You moron! Idiot! Dumbo! Cretin! Do you realize what you've done? Do you have any idea what kind of trouble you are in?
You stole a vampire's spider! You stole from a member of the undead! What do you think he's going to do when he catches up with you, Darren? Spank your bottom and scold you? Tell your parents and make them ground you? We're talking about a vampire! He'll rip out your throat and been you to the spider! He'll tear you to pieces and- To think I used to believe you were my friend.
I'm going to hunt you down and kill you
On this blood, I swear it!
It is not true that all tarantulas are poisonous
I have one such spider
Do not move! Remember your earlier warning: a sudden noise could mean death!
Delicious. Nothing tastier than fresh spider webs. They are a treat where I come from.
Are you looking for me?
I cannot turn a child into a vampire
You have bad blood!
Good morning, Master Shan
You know what I love? I love people who watch lots of horror movies and read horror books. Because they believe what they read and hear, and come packing silly things like crosses and holy water, instead of weapons which could do some damage, like guns and hand grenades.
Get used to the pain. Much of it lies ahead.
