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.
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 Heather 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 threatening to kill him. And Vlad now

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
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

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:

Also, I'm of two minds about him and Meredith breaking up. On the one hand it's to protect her and that's noble/valiant of a very knightly kind of sense. On the other hand it's a very shitty thing to

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.

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?
Autumn Taylor
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

I love mostly everything about this series and these books are just getting better. I can't wait to read the next one, I heard from friends that the next book is better.

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 but Otis is still up welcomed in the vampire com

In this book "Tenth Grade Bleeds" its yet another terrible for our main character Vladamir. Before his main concern was jut to fit in in Bathory high, now he's on the look out for his biggest enemy, D'Ablo, is on the verge of figuring out a way to steal Vlad's status as Pravus witch involves killing him.

But this isn't the only problem for Vlad, now his best friend Henry doesn't want to be his drudge anymore and now his hunger is almost uncontrollable, he hasn't heard from his uncle Otis in a mon

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
