Tenth Grade Bleeds by Heather Brewer [Review]


BookCoverofTenthGradeBleedsbyHeatherBrewer_thumb[1] The Vampire smilie is back! :)

Tenth Grade Bleeds is the third volume of The Chronicles of Vladmir Todd by Heather Brewer. You can see my thoughts on the first two, Eighth Grade Bites & Ninth Grade Slays by clicking on the links.

This is an incredibly fun series, as we follow Vlad Tod through his many adventures, but things for Vlad take a slightly darker turn this year.

The year starts out well enough, he has an amazing girlfriend in long’-term crush Meredith, and his uncle is around to help guide Vlad through his vampiric training.

But soon, his uncle needs to leave town for a while, and the ever annoying Eddie Poe is still hanging round like a bad smell, but now with an even better camera and a promise to expose Todd for what he is.

Even worse, his best friend and drudge, Henry, is acting oddly, and it becomes clears he is questioning whether or not he wants to remain Todd’s drudge any more. Todd could really do, with being able to speak to his uncle, but he has disappeared off the face of the earth and even their mental connection, which normally allows them to communicate isn’t working.

What really worries Vlad though his vampiric urges are becoming stronger, and the sweet smell of human blood, especially that of his girlfriend Meredith, is becoming more and more tempting and with everything else that is going on in his life Todd doesn’t know how long he can resist.

In Tenth Grade Bleeds, Heather Brewer nicely blends the trials and tribulations of being a typical teenage high school boy, with some fun and original vampire lore, and a fantastic and likable hero in Vladimir Tod.

Teenage urges are hard enough to deal with, but when you mix in the vampire ones as well… *shudders* ;)
