This is book 10 of the Cirque Du Freak series. In this book Harkat, a Little Person created by a dead soul by Mr. Tiny, is trying to figuire out who he really is. He protected Darren in all his adventures no its Harkats turn to have one. Mr. Tiny visits the Cirque Du Freak taking Harkat with him to find his real soul.
Darren jumps in with Harkat when he was not supposed to but Mr. Tiny allows it anyways. Mr. Tiny sent Harkat and Darren to a harsh desert. After enduring a very long journey thru the desert they have to slay a panther in a jungle, will they make it and find Harkats soul? Or will they die trying?I can make a text to text connection. I can connect this to Copper Sun. Harkat is trying really hard to achieve something he wants, and in this case its his soul. In Copper Sun, Polly tried really hard to make friends with Amari even if it was hard, and from there they both tried really hard to escape to freedom.I rate this book 5 stars because Darren Shan books never seem to bore me, and I think he is really creative on how he created his own world.
Also, since it is near the end of the series I think he did a pretty good job wrapping up and closeing loose ends.
