Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Before Madame Octa...<br> <br> Before the Cirque...<br> <br> Before Darren Shan...<br> <br> Larten Crepsley was a young man.<br> <br> After failing his mentor and killing the entire crew of a ship in a bout of revenge for the death of his assistant, Larten is bereft with guilt. He no longer has the drive to live the vampiric life, and hides out in Paris, masquerading as a human. There, he finds some happiness, even falling in love with a girl. But the darkness inside him is too great for humanity, and he is forced to make a choice: hide in the shadows of the human world, or take his place among the vampire clan and protect those weaker than himself. But enemies are waiting, traps are laid, and Larten's path is bound to be strewn with bodies.<br> <br> This is his story.

Having received a sign that he is not meant to die, young vampire Larten tries to live in the human world, raising the infant who survived his veangeful killing of a ship's crew and falling in love with a human girl, but the darkness inside him forces him back to Vampire Mountain.
