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

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?

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
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!

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

"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

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

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.

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
great book but i thought it was sketchy when d'ablo came back. I was happy to find out about the Pravus too and to get to know otis better

~3.5 Stars~

Were the first two books this melodramatic? Because I don't remember them being this melodramatic.

That aside, though, this is a fun series. The main character is, if maybe not the most logical at times, fun to read about. It's one of those series that you could call a 'guilty pleasure', because even if the main character makes some stupid, stupid decisions at times, and even though the main character is hit with a large ball of teenage angst, it's still a lot of fun to read. And, okay

Having reached the third volume of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, I’m still impressed by how fun, accessible, and generally outstanding they are in the overwhelming flood of vampire stories currently available. Tenth Grade Bleeds is a solid follow through from the first two stories, showing continued growth in Vlad’s character, the vampire mythos as a whole, and the Pravus storyline. I think, more than some, this volume focuses on Vlad’s own internal character and growth since, for a good part ...more

Vladimir Tod ist zur Hälfte Vampir und zur Hälfte Mensch. Genau das ist das Problem, denn eigentlich dürfte es ihn gar nicht geben. Menschen und Vampire können zusammen keine Kinder bekommen. Eigentlich. Genau diese Einzigartigkeit wird zum Problem, denn ist Vlad nun der Pravus, der über alle Vampire herrschen und die Menschheit versklaven wird? Außerdem ist er in menschliches Mädchen verliebt und sein bester Freund möchte nicht mehr sein Lakai sein…

Well...that was certainly a thing.

It was definitely a little better than the past two. But not by much.

And one of the biggest things running through my head about Vlad is hypocrite. In huge flashing neon letters. And that he needs to wear one of these:

'10th grade bleeds' is by far the greatest book in the series or ' The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod'.
This book begins to look deeper into Vlad's personal life instead of focusing on his vampire-hood, as shown in the last couple series. It elaborates about the affect of Having Vlad's uncle, Otis having him over in order to discover Vlad's hidden abilities as a vampire. As Otis lived with him I believe he has brought the inner vampire out of Vladimir. Otis, also worried about how Vladimir's diet co

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.

Disclaimer: I have not read the first two books and had no knowledge of the plot before I found a copy of this book for two dollars and was intrigued enough by the cover to give it a try without realizing it was the third book in a series.

However, I feel that this book can pretty much be read as a stand alone because there is so much repetition in the writing. It seemed like every other page was a recap of Vlad biting Henry when they were kids, Joss staking Vlad, or D'Ablo trying to kill Vlad. I

Keeping with the year-to-year pattern, Vlad enters his sophomore year of high school...and just like before, danger awaits. Zac not only takes us deeper into the world of Bathory, but definitely isn't afraid to pull the rug out beneath our feet with the ability to take us into areas we had no idea existed. For me, upon reading, this book became a pivotal point in Vlad's world for he had to make some decisions that definitely will return later down the road. This book grows darker than the prior ...more

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.

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?

What did I think? Well, this might some it up.


These books keep getting better and better, but darker and darker! I really loved the heartwarming feel that the first book had, but I think I might like this darker tone better.


I love how Vladimir has grown and developed as a vampire and a teenager. The action was great, the slight suspense was great and everything was just
