A funny, light teen vampire novel for all ages!

If you are looking for a funny, light teen vampire novel that has a bit of suspense, then you might want to check out The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites.

Normally shelved in the young adult section, you will find that the writing is better suited for young teens and tweens, and that the plot is pretty standard and easy to follow. Perfect for young ones just becoming interested in vampire fiction. With that said, the book is highly enjoyable for people of all ages and once you finish it, you’ll be eager to check out the rest in the series.

The first part of the story deals mostly with usual teen angst, yet it ushers you smoothly into Vlad’s unusual world. What can be worse than being in Junior High and having a crush on a girl who has a crush on your best friend? Being a half vampire in Junior High and trying to drink blood while looking normal. You soon learn that Vlad’s parents (a father who was a vampire and a mother who was human) were killed while he was still young and a friend of his mother’s took over raising him as they wished: like a human. Now that Vlad is getting older though, his vampire side begins to show its fangs and he has more questions than answers about his life and who he is.

In addition to an entertaining read, author Heather Brewer has created a great supporting web page where you can find all things Vlad; even the free Minion Bling!
