This is the second book in the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series. And it was a lot of fun!

Vlad is now in the ninth grade, which means he's attending Bathory High School. However, some things don't change. He's still getting bullied, continues to be tongue-tied around the girl he likes, one of his classmates suspects he's some sort of monster, and he's become the target of a slayer. He's also developed a good friendship with his best friend's cousin, who's come to stay for a while.

At least he's now got a vampire uncle willing to teach him the ways of the vampire. Which includes taking him to Siberia so he can meet a very old vamp and start his training on how to read and control minds. Only, danger is always a lot closer than he expects...

Just like the first installment, I had an awesome time reading this book. It was a lot of fun, and introduced some seriously dangerous consequences for Vlad. I still reckon he's a sweet, nice boy. No matter what any prophecy states. ;)

Oh, and one seriously awesome vampire reference was the place where Joss is from, Santa Carla. I loved it! Very cool.

Here's a quote from one of my favourite movies, The Lost Boys: "One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach...all the damn vampires". ;)
