Pandora Just finished Ninth Grade Slays. It seems to me that this book is awfully close to Darren Shan's Cirque Du Freak but, without the great characters or terrfic vampire culture.

Like Darren from Cirque Du Freak Tod slowly discover he is the fulfillment of a dark prophecy in which he will rule the vampire world and take over the world. Like Darren Tod does not what to do this. Unlike Darren Tod's vampire world is not as intresting. I'm also so far not convinced Tod's fate is as doom as Darren's.


Brooklyn Jones i love this book!!

If you aren't convinced, read the rest of the books! they are friggin' awesome!


Holly I have not read the Cirque Du Freak series, but I assure you that these are great books!!! I'm not normally a fan of vampire books myself, but I made an exception for this series. They were well worth reading!!!


Dai-chan I never looked at it that way but now that you pointed it out they are quite similar.


Yasmeen i should give Cirque Du Freak a try..VladTod was really cool and even the last book was sort of a cliffhanger..it'll be explained in her new series..First Kill is the first book i think..its about Joss..


Gloria love these series!!!

T_T

YOU ARE:
a bad book reviewer
Completely biased and/or prejudiced
and
insulting The Minion Horde, true Vladimir Tod fans.

(If you're not a minion(fan on Auntie Heather's(Heather Brewer)blog) Go joi already.)


Bookworm12 P.S. no offense.
=)


Chris ↛ Not really, but hey, I can't say anything seeing I haven't read the Vampire's Assistant due to the reason that I totally dread the way of writing of the author... Its too fast paced for my taste. And I love The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod =b


Annie even if it was similar, doesn't kill to read it. if you enjoyed cirque du freak, won't you enjoy vladimir tod? haha.

Bookworm007 To me, Vlad Tod is a modern version of Cirque du Freak; I love both series so, sooo much. ♥


 Lissa Smith Reads'~Bookaholics Bookshelf Reviews I must weigh in on the great Vladimir Todd debate. I discovered the series about eleven months ago. It was on display at my local library and the cover art caught my attention. (I’m a sucker for cover art). Being it was YA, I almost didn’t check it out. But the cover art won and I got my read on.

I try my hardest never to compare one book to another simply because it doesn’t matter what I am reading I can find similarities that always remind me of another book I have read in the past; that is one of the things I enjoy about reading.

I myself enjoyed the entire series and was disappointed that it ended so soon. However, I was pleased that she announced a spin- off series from the hunter’s point of view.

In a nut shell….. I’m not ashamed to say I loved The Vladimir Todd Series.

As far as the cirque du freak, I saw the movie before I discovered it was a book and was turned off by it.

I KNOW---- HARSH JUDGMENT—Screen writers tend to kill a great stories—JUST LOOK at
LJ SMITH’s The Secret Circle on CW, as one example or CH’s Southern Vampire Series (Sookie) on HBO.

So maybe I should give it a read.

There are many books out there that have the main characters fate being doom, or taking over the world, or just the fact that they live causes catastraphe. (I(know the spelling is wrong there, I just don't know how to spell it.)


MizziQ I couldn't keep it straight and I couldn't remember which stories applied to both and what I was supposed to remember from Vlad's 1st book.
