Heartwarming / The Saga of Darren Shan

Go To

  • Darren's friendship with Kurda: In the end of book 6, just after Kurda is executed and then again when Darren becomes a Vampire Prince, and he sees shades of his dead friends, he shows that he still thinks of Kurda as a friend after all that's happened.
    • Then later, in the end of book 10, the whole explanation regarding why Kurda was made into Harkat: in order to protect and support Darren, even by masterminding his own downfall.
      • That explanation being Kurda's extreme impulse to protect Darren at all costs. All of the times Kurda/Harkat saved Darren... which is, pretty much any time he was around when Darren was in danger. Including the many times he tried to talk Darren out of getting himself into danger in the first place.

    • And finally, in the manga adaptation of book 12, when Darren is in the Lake of Souls, and he feels himself being pulled out but he doesn't want to go, and he resists... but then Kurda pushes him out. A last act of motivation from a lifelong friend.
