In the book The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod you meet a boy named Vladimir. And although his name sounds weird, thatâ€™s not the only weird thing about him.
He himself is a half Vampire. This means his mom was a human while his dad was a vampire. I say WAS because they are both deadâ€¦ presumably killed. And now he lives with his aunt. His aunt and his best friend are also the only people that know about his secret. His survival is greatly helped by his aunt because to survive he doesnâ€™t have to kill anyone. Usually to feast and fulfill the needs of their body, a vampire would need to kill and feast on a humanâ€™s body. And the only way to feast on a body is to kill it or find it dead. But thanks to his aunt, Vlad is able to get blood bags from the hospital his aunt works in. Although what she does is illegal and risky, the aunt would do anything to help and protect her nephew. Vlad lives peacefully amongst everyone else and even has a huge crush on Meredith, a girl in his class. But after a teacher disappears, everything goes down the drain. The teacher disappears and the substitute teacher is not what he seems. Vlad is immediately precautious of him. This suspicion is further made into realistic after many deaths occur around town.
This book is one of the best books I have read. It is incredibly realistic and relatable since Vlad is in eighth grade. The book has all the thrills and spooks to keep you on the edge of your seat. I stayed up and extra hour without knowing just to read this book. It is a definite page turner and makes your brain constantly curious.
For thirteen years, Vlad, aided by his aunt and best friend, has kept secret that he is half-vampire, but when his missing teacher is replaced by a sinister substitute, he learns that there is more to being a vampire, and to his parents' deaths, than he could have guessed. Click to Search Catalog
