The Crepsley saga is an excellent set of books, and does help to understand the characteristics of the old vampire. It also gives an insight to the people you read about in the Darren Shan saga and helps to build the relationships further then that of acquaintances.
The first 2 books are incredibly good, with a lot of back story and many twists (egging you on to continue reading). The unfortunate things about the saga are that the last 2 books seem rather rushed and are considerably shorter then the first 2. The plot is rather transparent in the final books and the narrative devices Darren uses in order to ostensibly fool and deceive the reader are rather obvious and predictable. You find yourself predicting names on the next page and the climax can be anticipated before reaching the middle of the book.
There is room for improvement on the 4th book, and had Darren not been set to such restrained deadlines the finale may have been more cryptic.
Overall, the books are still a good read and are still useful for passing the time.
