The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod #2: Ninth Grade Slays by Heaher Brewer

Ninth Grade Slays (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, #2)This book is the second in the series, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. Vlad enters high school, and he still has a crush on Meredth and is still getting bullied. However, he gets word that a vampire slayer is in town, and Vlad is the target. In addition, an outcast at the high school sees Vlad floating down from the top of the school, and he's determined to expose Vlad's secret in the school newspaper. Vlad's uncle returns and takes him to Siberia for some vampire training. He also learns a great deal about his dead father, and a powerful secret is revealed to him. Vlad may be fulfilling a vampire prophecy about a vampire born to lead all vampirekind against the humans. It's a lot of heavy stuff for a high school freshman to deal with.

If you enjoyed Eighth Grade Bites then you'll love this book. It contains the fun character interactions from the first book, but the suspense is amped up a bit. Henry's cousin joins the cast and becomes one of Vlad's best friends. Vlad's thirst for blood is increasing, a slayer is hunting him down, and he is learning new vampire powers. Good times for Vlad!
