Another exciting tale of adventure and mayhem. There is a dash of a Buffy quality to these books. Not just because this one is mostly about fighting a vampire, but in the dark nature of the story and in the mixed up group of kids who are fighting evil and trying to grow up at the same time. Plus the sense of humor along side the violence and terror gives it a young Buffy quality for me.

The books would be best for older pre-teens and young teenagers who aren't easily upset by edge of your seat adventures with vivid scenes of violence and gore. It's good for both girls and boys. The easy read and fast pace would make it a good choice for reluctant readers.
