Junior High is not going so well for Thirteen year old Vladimir Tod. The bullies love picking on him, the principal doesn't like him and the girl he is love with likes his best friend more. If being a teenager wasn't bad enough it is even harder for Vlad because Vlad is a vampire.

His mother was human and his dad was a vampire. He has no idea what powers he could have or how to use them. He manages his blood cravings with the help of blood taken from the local hospital. Hiding the real Vlad isn't that easy but he is getting by.

Then a strange substitute teacher arrives at his school. Mr Otis is asking Vlad some strange questions and Vlad starts to worry that his secret is about to be let out of the bag. It works out that this is the least of his worries in this first part in 'The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod'.

This has everything you could possibly want from a vampire novel. Dark secrets, mysterious signs and wonderful powers. This read is of course aimed at younger readers but I found it to be refreshing and fun. I can't wait to read the next part and follow Vlad's growing pains and the teenage problems of being different to the others.

Something for everyone to relate to in this one and with great characters and a fascinating storyline this is worth reading if you love vamps! Oh and I love the name 'Tod' which means 'Death' in German.

This sounds like a good one to check out. So many of the YA titles are great for both teens and adults. :)

That's the thing...it isn't easy to catch all of them! At least you found it, and had I not seen the review I wouldn't have been curious. :)
