Didn't think it could get any better than the first one. Well, I was wrong.
This is a great follow up to Eighth Grade Bites.
He's in high school now, but that is not the only thing that has changed for Vladimir.

Another great addition to the series. I'm really enjoying the characters, but I keep finding myself urging them to do things. At times the story line sort of drags and you just wish they'd do whatever it is they need to do and move on.

The Vladimir Tod series is probibly the best series I have ever read ! This book is funny , awsome , and totally relatable ... well most of it anyway. Mostly about vampire troubles mixed with high school delema but still an amazing book ! Cannot wait until the final book "Twelve grade kills" comes out !

This is a pretty big step down from the first Chronicles of Vladimir Tod book. It wasn't as absorbing. It kept going and going. If the 2nd book was the 1st, I wouldn't continue reading the series. I'm just hoping it gets better after this.

I liked how Vlad met with a teacher in Siberia. It shows us how Vlad's progressing and learning as a teenage half-vampire. I'm interested in what other abilities Vlad will develop as the books continue, and what else he'll learn from his uncle.

High school totally bites when youre half human, half vampire. Freshman year sucks for Vlad Tod. Bullies still harass him. The photographer from the school newspaper is tailing him. And failing his studies could be deadly. A trip to Siberia gives study abroad a whole new meaning as Vlad connects with other vampires and advances his mind-control abilities, but will he return home with the skills to recognize a vampire slayer when he sees one? In this thrilling sequel to Eighth Grade Bites, Vlad must confront the secrets of the past and battle forces that once again threaten his life. Find out why author D. J. MacHale calls The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod Gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding.



What can I say but I love Vlad? Heather Brewer has created such a wonderful character. Vlad captured my heart in The Chronicles of Vlaimir Tod and he achieved hunk status again. I find his little love affair with Meredith so adorable! Hopefully in the next book he actually gets to be with her. Otis, also another favorite, is front and center in this installment. They way he loves on Nelly...CUTE! Henry stills seems a little 2 dimensional to me but he has the whole vampire sidekick act down to an art.



Heather kept me guessing with each turn of the page. Who was the slayer? Was Vlad really a super vampire who will someday enslave the whole human race? Would he ever ask Meredith out? I couldn't put it down. Vlad's awkward charm totally won me over and his sense of loyalty seemed to know no limits.
