In agreeing to undergo the Trials of Initiation in order to restore Mr. Crepsley's honor, Darren may have bitten off more than a half-vampire can chew. Each trial is taxing than the last, and despite his resolve, Darren simply may not be up to the task! In the depths of Vampire Mountain, though, a threat even deadlier than the Trials is stirring...


  1. Hi, great job with the scanlations! I read all 12 books and i loved them, and the manga is a great adaptation, staying very true to the books.

    Just one question, whats the timeframe between releases? It's one chapter a week? One volume every month?

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Hello Erik, thanks for viewing this site!
    Well for the timeframe between releases it is not set, but most probably one chapter a week that if I have the volume of that book. Eg: I have volume 5 now, I'll scan it every week one chapter. After finish scanning volume 5, we'll have to wait for volume 6 to release, then when I get hold of it, I'll scan it every week one chapter, but it is not set. Thanks for commenting, hope this helps!

  3. Thanks for the answer! Now i can ease the anticipation a little.

    Would be cool if they made a manga adaptation of the Demonata books too.

    Thanks again.

  4. Max, I love you for putting up these scans, thank you for all the hard work. <3

    I do have one question though, would you ever consider putting up the volume 5 scans on another manga site aside from this one ?

    I know that the people who read the Darren Shan scans on mangafox have been waiting for volume 5 for quite awhile. Alas though, no one has been either translating or putting up the scans.
    Also it is against the forum rules for me to link them to other scans sites such as this one though I have wanted to. :<

    Thanks again for putting all this work into scanning everything for us ! :>

    Stay groovy. <3
