Looks like this is turning into a nice series for those looking for action adventure with a vampire twist.
I've already read the series twice. :)

Truth be told, this novel wasn't even on my radar. I'd never heard of the series, and I wasn't looking for another vampire book to read, but a student brought this to me and begged me to read it so s/he would possibly have the opportunity to read it as part of his/her outside reading project this quarter. Out of the 200 books I listed as choices, s/he wanted something that wasn't on the list. Figures.
But, my student made a case for th ...more

Once again, Jason Henderson does not disappoint with this clean young adult adventure fit for paranormal fans of any age. This title was even better than the first, with an even scarier villain and much higher stakes. New characters are introduced, and several play bigger roles in this one. There's a bigger mystery element in Voice of the Undead, and some characters take a turn for the evil as time goes on.
Alex proves his worth by ke ...more

Voice of the Undead is a great sequel, but it’s not as great as the first book. I’m not sure what it is that made me enjoy it less, but when I finished it, I didn’t have the same feeling of excitement. I didn’t want to grab someone and shove this book in their face a ...more

I really loved the first book with it's background history on the classic horror authors. This sequel had a great storyline but le ...more
The characters are not as well developed either. I felt maybe we could get a little more about Alex or his friends. I still like the book, and felt it did a good job of being more of the classic vampire stories. But just felt kind of bland at times.
I liked it but fel ...more
Other than this, the idea of the curse on Vienna is totally unexpected, but it also makes the story cools down a little bit, if Vienna was a vampire, I think the plotline might be more attractive to me. Just saying :p
simple reads, I like that the words are not overly simplified, that there is some bigger words, the action is simple and easy to follow...some of the character development could be a little smarter... but all and all I give it four stars! GO ALEX!
