Release Date: February 9, 2010
Can Heather get any better? Well, probably, there's one more book yet. I've been a huge fan of the Vladimir Tod series since the first book came out and none of the books have disappointed me. With each new book Vlad gets better and the action gets more intense. As with every other Vladimir Tod story I flew through the pages because I didn't want to walk away from Bathory and the world Heather Brewer has created.
What really gets to me is the depth of the characters; the vampires may be the focus of the story but they aren't purely good, and the slayers are the "enemies" but at least one isn't purely bad. They are all people living their lives the best way they can. In Eleventh Grade Burns we see a new side of everyone, Vlad, Joss, Otis. Everyone continues to grow and change, which should happen in any good story.
I'm both excited for the release of Twelfth Grade Kills and sad to see it get here because I know that's the end of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. I'm anxious to see it arrive, (and once you finish Eleventh Grade Burns you'll know why) and sad to see Vlad go. The good news is that I own all of the books so I can revisit Vlad over and over again, and I'm definitely looking forward to doing exactly that.
