Wisecracks, gadgets and fast-paced action sequences abound in the second book about Alex Van Helsing, a 14-year-old boy with a supernatural gift for sensing evil.... humorous dialogue and harrowing escapes will keep action-oriented readers entertained.

Format: Hardcover
There are quite a few things I love about this series:

Vampires are freaking scary and very evil.
Alex is a guy's, guy. He loves tech and badassery.
Most things are easy for Alex due to his heightened Van Helsing senses, but getting girls is still hard.
The mentor in the story isn't your atypical yodaesque character. He has flaws as well.
Alex has a merry band of friends who are all well thought out and fantastically executed.
Voice of the Undead shows us that Alex does have flaws, he can make stupid decisions and bad mistakes just like any other fourteen year old boy. I love the bits of the story where Sid gets to shine and the ones where Alex realizes his spidey senses can't save him every time. We are introduced to a few new characters and I enjoyed Alex's interaction with them as well.

Alex Van Helsing is one kid I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley if I were a vampire, but he is a heck of a lot of fun to read.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By SciFiChick VINE VOICE on July 29, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Alex Van Helsing is the descendant of the legendary vampire slayer himself. Only fourteen, Alex attends school full time and works for the Polidorium tracking and taking down vampires. After an attack, Alex has to deal with the outcome of a fire at the boarding school, and being forced to move in to the neighboring girls' school. Meanwhile, the vampire Elle is back, and wants revenge. And the Polidorium discovers that a powerful vampire named Ultravox is coming to town, with his own deadly agenda.

Alex Van Helsing carries on his ancestor's legacy in a new fashion with high tech gadgets, talented friends, and an uncanny ability to sense the undead around him. Henderson's characters are vivid and intriguing. After the events in the previous novel, Alex's friends now know about the vampire situation. And a developing relationship between two of them leads to some jealousy. While Elle is fairly straight-forward and bent on revenge, Ultravox is a unique villain with a dangerous ability.

As the complex story unfolds, the intensity increases. Fast-paced and action-packed, this sequel is completely engaging. There are plenty of surprises and twists leading to a climactic and dramatic ending. A few mysteries still linger that will leave readers wanting more. Full of mystery, adventure, and teenage angst, this fantasy series for young adults is exceptional.

By A Book Vacation on July 15, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
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 fourth 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 the book, and to be quite honest, I’ve never seen this student quite as excited about any reading material this entire year; I mean, s/he was only on page 11 and was gushing about how good it was. And the whole purpose of my outside reading project is to get kids interested in reading, right? So I read it. In one sitting. And it was good. Now I need book one.

Yes, this is the second book in the series, and I was a little worried that I’d have no idea what was going on, and in the beginning, I was a little confused–but I read the synopsis for book one and that pretty much put everything in perspective for me, AND, Henderson also does a great job bringing the reader up to speed, rehashing some events from book one without going overboard or info dumping.

And I really liked this story. It’s definitely a novel geared towards males, which is great since I tend to gravitate to books with females leads, and it does indeed blend a bit of James Bond with the whole vampire spectrum. While we don’t really see much in terms of vampires in this novel, they’re alluded to, and the mysterious and ever awful Elle does make a play for power in her attempts to end Alex Van Helsing, so there is that.

But this novel really revolves around young Alex playing spy while also attempting to attend school with the elite.

My review of Book 1, Vampire Rising, can be found here: [...]

The gang is all back together in Book 2: Alex, Paul, Sid, Minhi, Sangster, the rest of the Polidorium, and Alex's nemesis, Elle the vampire.

After being attacked by Elle on his way back to school, Alex accidentally burns down the school. This forces the entire Glenarvon’s Boarding School for Boys to move into an all girls' school, LaLaurie School for Girls, while the situation is assessed. This school just happens to be the one Minhi attends and is the sister school to Glenarvon. Here, we are introduced to Vienna, who has captivated Alex.

While at the school, the boys learn of a tradition where there is a talent show. Sid is encouraged to write and read his vampire stories to the school for the competition. While at the library seeking material/books to use, Vienna thrusts a book at Sid to use. After a while of reading and writing from the book, the girls in the school are summoned forth into the night by an unknown entity. Elle is the leader of the group but she is assisted by the recording from a sinister new player on the scene named Ultravox. He has his target set on someone or something in the city but neither Alex nor the Polidorium can figure out who or what.

Will Alex and the Polidorium figure out what's going on before anyone ends of dead?

I wasn't nearly as excited about Book 2 as I was about Book 1. Voice of the Undead seemed to be written at a much slower pace than Vampire Rising. I didn't find myself engaged in the plot of the story and as such it took me quite a long time (and two library renewals) to get it read. It just didn't pull me into the story as much as I had hoped it would.

The story line itself was great.
