REview of Ninth Grade Slays by Heather Brewer:
Vladimir Tod recently realized being a teenage vampire isn't easy. In the 2nd book of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, we follow Vlad through many hardship including girls, morals and of course evil vampires.
I really liked this book. This series is shaping up to be great. There is a lot of relationships and caring going around, which many vampire stories lack. Vlad's uncle Otis cares deeply for Vlad. My favorite scene in the whole book is when Otis admits to Vlad that he did not support Tomas(Vlad's father)'s decision of falling in love, and having a child with a human. The characters feel real and act real. They make mistakes but that have a motive. They say things the way real people do, not with fancy wording and big words no one uses in conversation.
Once again. Ms. Brewer's writing was as wonderful as ever.She is very talented and as I said, is able to capture the essence of being a teenaged out-cast. I very much enjoy her writing.
Also Once again, Vlad is a character you are meant to sympathize with. In the end you will start to empathize with him and honestly feel how hard it is to be him.
In conclusion, I once said this series had the possibilty of becoming one of the best vampire series out there. Ninth Grade Slay's does not disappoint nor disprove in anyway this statement
