Heather Brewer's Chronicles of Vladimir Tod

Ninth Grade Slays
(The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, Book 2 )
Author: Heather Brewer
Reviewer: Michael

If you liked the first book then get ready for twice the action! Heather Brewer has done it again in Ninth Grade Slays (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, Book 2), only better.
Vlad is finally in 9th grade with his friends. Henry’s cousin is visiting and going to the same school as them. After Vlad’s last encounter with Meredith, where he failed to kiss her, he worries if he’ll still have a chance with her. Or, will she fall in love with Henry’s cousin? Girl troubles aren’t the only thing Vlad has to worry about. He has to be careful not to let out his secret, and worry about the a vampire slayer too. Vlad has so much going on he has to be careful who he can trust.

If you read Eighth Grade Bites, this sequel is a must. If you haven’t, pick them both up you won’t be sorry.

Eighth Grade Bites
The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
Author: Heather Brewer
Reviewer: Jason

If being thirteen wasn't hard enough, Vladimir Tod has to hide his identity as a vampire while attending junior high. Eight Grade Bites is the first book in the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series. The protagonist of the story Vladimir, or Vlad, is your average teenage vampire. Still learning to control some of his powers, Vlad is able to float, read minds and has a taste for blood. The story starts out with a chilling opening, a mysterious man and murder. Vlad grows suspicious when his English teacher suddenly disappears and a new substitute teacher takes over, Mr. Otis Otis. Vlad searches for clues about the disappearance of his teacher, Mr. Craig, and makes some startling discoveries that lead to him learning about a whole other world of vampires. Eight Grade Bites is a blood-sucking good book with plenty of twists and turns that leaves you hungry for more.
