Plot summary

The book carries on from when Darren Shan was falling down a huge waterfall in "Trials of Death", and he must make his way back to Vampire Mountain, while avoiding Kurda Smahlt and his accomplices. He runs into a pack of wolves, Streak and Rudi the two wolves he knows from an earlier encounter. These wolves help him make his way back to Vampire Mountain safely. He must find a way to inform the vampire princes (the leaders of the vampires) of Kurda's treachery before they crown him a fellow prince. Kurda's treason includes hiding vampaneze inside the mountain, preparing to murder the princes and gain control of the Stone of Blood (a powerful stone that can be used to locate any vampire who has touched it) with which he would force the vampires to join the vampaneze and become a single clan once more. However, with Seba Nile's help, Darren reveals Kurda to the Princes in the nick of time. The vampaneze are found and savagely murdered. Arra Sails is badly wounded during the fight with the vampaneze and dies. Vanez Blane loses his other eye, and Darren kills two vampaneze, but is sickened by his own battle lust. Even though Kurda's intentions were pure, the Princes give him the most terrible punishment possible: execution by impalement of stakes in the Hall of Death in the manner of a traitor and shameful cremation, so that he may not reach paradise. During his trial, Kurda explains his plans to the vampires, and they see that he wasn't selfish, so they no longer hate him. Darren is supposed to be executed for fleeing the Princes judgment, but after he revealed Kurda's treachery no one wants to kill him. The only way there is for Darren to live is if he is placed above the rules, so he is made a Vampire Prince.
