The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Tenth Grade Bleeds
by Heather Brewer
Dutton Children's (Penguin)
Well, it's another year at Bathory High School, and a whole new set of challenges for Vladimir Tod. To make matters worse his Uncle Otis is going to leave him, insisting that it's not safe to remain in one place for very long. Vlad feels there is so much more to be learned from the older vampire, but at the same time, training with Otis just keeps reminding Vlad of what a freak he is in the vampire world. Vlad is the only half-vampire, half-human in existence, something that has many believing he is the legendary Pravus. If the legends are true he will one day rule over vampires and enslave humans. As if worrying about passing his classes and the return of his middle school principal weren't bad enough.
Despite all of the craziness and the danger that Vlad has experienced in the past few years, he always knew he could depend on one person: Henry. Henry's been his best friend since childhood and through an accidental bite is also Vlad's drudge (human slave). But right when Vlad needs him the most, Henry seems to be pulling away and Vlad's not sure what to do.
Vlad's also having nightmares and he hasn't been able to reach his Uncle Otis since Otis' departure. Could the nightmares be foretelling the future? Or is something more sinister afoot?
Like I said in the beginning, Heather Brewer just keeps on getting better. I was so absorbed by Vlad's story, I just had to keep going to see what was going to happen next. I absolutely love Vladimir Tod and I'm practically drooling for the next book.
Tenth Grade Bleeds is amazing! Rush out and reserve or pre-order your copy today. If you haven't read any Vlad yet, well you've been under a rock, but we can fix that. :) While you're pre-ordering TGB, pick up Eighth Grade Bites and Ninth Grade Slays. Once you've got those two, start reading. lol Those should tide you over til Tenth Grade Bleeds releases somewhere towards the end of June, beginning of July.
Thanks again Heather for the wonderful book! And thank you readers for stopping by! Keep on reading!
