It's another sucky year at Bathory High for Vladimir Tod. The evil vampire D-Ablo is hunting for the ritual that could steal Vlad's powers. His best friend Henry doesn't want to be his drudge anymore. And as if all that weren't enough, it's getting harder for Vlad to resist feeding on the people around him. When months go by with no word from Uncle Otis and D'Ablo shows up ...more

Vladimir Tod has been learning a lot about his vampire abilities. Otis has spent the summer training him on extending his telepathic communication. He is also getting better at sensing when other vampires are near. Both Vlad and his Aunt Nelly have gotten used to Otis being around and hate to see him go, but since Otis is still a fugitive in the vampire community, he knows in order to keep them safe, he must leave.

Vlad’s life seems to be going great. He has the girl of his dreams by his side and

Your heart will go bleed for Vald and his family as this epic tale continues.

Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It has a fairly original or uniquely well-developed plot. The pretense and romance was well balanced and done with properly distributed amounts of hin

If you want to read a vampire book with memorable characters, good scenes filled with dread, action, and some hilarious shit, you are not allowed to overlook The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. You hear me? You are not allowed.

First off, I had put down this book a while back. Not that it got boring, I just had things to do. I felt bad, and picked it back up and got whisked off on a shit ton of stuff that all made sense and drove fun plot/subplot storylines. Let's face it, stuff making sense is becom
This has been the weakest installment so far. There's been too much melodrama and to little action for my taste. Also, Vlad has been progressively becoming a total idiot, which I don't like at all!

I'm hoping the next one will be more engaging. After all, how can a teenager's life get more boring as the guy gets older?

The third installment in this series and it's just as good as the first two. I was upset about what was happening with Henry and Vlad's friendship. It was cool to Vlad becoming more aware of his vampire powers. Also enjoyed seeing Otis and Nelly's forbidden relationship bloom. Can't wait to move on to the next book!
EDIT: Changed Brewer's name and pronouns.

Tenth Grade Bleeds is the third installment in The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. I have to admit that I am so tired of this series even though I've only got two to go. I hope to get through them quickly so I can leave Zac Brewer and Vladimir Tod behind me.

Now in tenth grade, Vladimir Tod has furthered his vampire training and come to accept the fact that he is the Pravus. But now Vlad has to deal with Otis once again disappearing with no contact and D'ablo

More of the same with book three. Doubtless, if you enjoyed the first two books, you will like this one, too. For me, the protagonist, Vlad, is not an active character; instead, he reacts to the people, actions, and events around him. He does have one significant moment with another character named Snow that changes him (and it is not exactly what you might be thinking). The same bad guy from the previous books is back making evil threats to Vlad’s life that he has a hard time delivering through ...more

Things got kicked up a notch and now I'm practically leaping for the next book in the series. I'm half tempted to go out right now (it's currently 1am) and get the next one to read at this very moment. This might be my favorite book so far in the series!

"It would be easier to be your drudge if you didn't order me around." - Henry McMillan to Vladimir Tod

Having survived a stake to the heart administered by a one-time friend, Vlad Tod finally has to admit the very real possibility that he is in fact the Pravus of vampire legend. It's not something he really wanted to face. It was bad enough when other vampires wanted to kill him when they only THOUGHT he might be the one fated to lead all vampires and enslave all humans. Now that it looks like th

Tenth Grade Bleeds was a very good book. It had a very good description of the action going on,so I was well aware of what was going on. In this book, Vladamir Tod faces his enemy once again. Eddie Poe, an unpopular kid in school, finds out Vlad's secret and continues to annoy him.
I liked this book because we can once again, experience Vlad's actions/scenarios. While I was reading this book, I felt a connection to Vlad, so when he was in pain I felt the same. I liked how The author explained h

Minions unite! Vlad is back and now in the tenth grade. Fans of this series won't be disappointed.

Vlad should be happy. The girl of his dreams, Meredith, is his girlfriend. Henry is his best friend. And Snelgrove, his middle school principal, is no longer in his life.

Well, apparently some things do change when you get older. One thing is his uncle Otis has been gone for a long time. Vlad is having terrible nightmares and Henry is acting funny by not wanting to hang with him like he used to. Plus

Tenth grade bites, but for Vladimir Tod, that's just a fact of life. Its not easy dealing with teenage angst, young love, and a failing friendship, especially when your half-vampire! Ever since Tod's "uncle" Otis showed up a year and a half ago Vlad, as he likes to be called, has had to deal with the potential reality that he may be the legendary Pravus, an immortal vampire descended to rule all vampires and enslave the human race. No pressure for Vlad, right? He's only got to

Again, I'm rounding up, because this book is a 3.5 at the very most. But since I'm scarfing this entire series up so quickly, it doesn't feel right to give it a lower rating.
I feel the need to mention something that has been bothering me since the first book, though. This kid cries. A. Lot. Like, every other page. No. I'm not talking about sniffling and holding back tears. I'm talking about sobbing. All. The. Time. Now, I'm not one of those gals that thinks boys (or men) shouldn't cry, but come

I'll admit when I started this series I was not a big fan. I thought the characters were cheesy and unrealistic and I felt like most of the things that happened in the first two books were unrealistic. I decided to give this book a chance when I saw it for very cheap at a garage sale and I'm glad I decided to continue on with this series. You can tell that Vlad did a lot of growing up during this book. He learns to solves his problems and he becomes generally just more focused. I enjoye

I like Vladmir Todd as a young vampire, but this book is better than the past two books. I greatly fond of Drudge and vampire relationship, Heather Brewer is one my favorite writer with the exemplary skills in forging words with the emotions in appropriate proportion.

If you read the past books of Chronicle series you will definitely like it better than the past two books.

The 3rd book in the Vladimir Todd series does not disappoint. Vlad struggles with his best friend Henry who no longer wants to be Vlad's drudge and his difficulty in only feeding on bagged blood. Vlad's relationship with his girlfriend Meredith also becomes increasingly difficult because he cannot reveal his true nature which is that of a half-vampire/half-human. Friendship and relationship struggles are what make this 3rd installment the best yet.

A book about a teenage vampire who lives in a city for just humans. Thinking he is one of a kind, he discovers there is a whole world of "creatures" like him. Safe and sound with his guardian for years kept him away from troubles. Shocked and sad to think that his uncle the only one of his family had abandoned him. What happened to people?

The book was going to get only three stars but since immensely enjoyed the first half of the ending, I gave it four. I don't know, but this one wasn't as epic as the first two. It was still really good, but not AMAZING. It is still definitely going on as one of my favs though. Vlad is still amazing and I have such a huge crush on him, it is absolutely ridiculous.

Vladimir is one of the best protagonists I have read in YA in awhile he is complex and down right funny.....I hope that he at least gets a supporting role or a cameo in the slayer chronicles
