Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–10—Vladimir Tod just wants to be a normal teen. Unfortunately that is impossible for a vampire who is the only one "living" in the small town of Bathory. Now starting 10th grade, he faces some typical teen problems. His friend Henry seems to be dumping him to hang out with the popular crowd. Pesky Eddie is determined to expose him, thinking this will bring him the popularity and fame he desires. Meredith has agreed to be his girlfriend, and he can't believe someone so perfect would want to be with him. He is troubled by terrible nightmares, and the need for human blood is growing extremely difficult to resist, putting Aunt Nelly, Henry, and Meredith at risk. The wicked vampire D'Ablo is determined to get rid of him and steal his powers for himself. Vlad needs to act fast if he is going to save himself and everything he holds dear. The plot is full of twists and turns, but the tone is darker and more intense than in the earlier books as Vlad struggles to overcome the obstacles thrown in his path and come to grips with who and what he really is. The stakes are high and the ending leaves readers dying for more.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY END

TENTH GRADE BLEEDS takes readers on the continuing adventures of a young vampire named Vladimir (Vlad) Tod.

Vlad is different than most vampires. He was born a vampire instead of created. Since the death of his parents - vampire father and human mother - he's been living with his aunt. There have been some bumpy times, but with the help of his vampire uncle and his best friend and drudge, Henry, he's survived his first year in high school and is about to begin his second.

The previous years have held some challenges for Vlad, but his tenth grade year is threatening to reveal some of the more potentially serious vampire issues. Uncle Otis headed off on his own adventures; however, Vlad wasn't really worried about his absence since the two have a mental connection that allows them to easily communicate. Otis isn't gone very long when Vlad discovers that the comforting communication seems to be missing. Now he doesn't have a clue where Otis is or how to get in touch with him.

Another new challenge is Henry. Their best friend relationship seems a bit strained. Henry finally admits his desire to be released as Vlad's drudge. First of all, is it possible? Secondly, can Vlad survive without the support and protection offered by a vampire's drudge?

The scariest change in book three is the fact that Vlad is beginning to have urges more typical of vampires. His blood supply has always come courtesy of his aunt's access to the blood bank at the hospital where she works, but he now is finding that the sweet scent of live human blood may be a temptation he might be unable to resist.

Combine these immediate concerns with continued problems from distant vampire councils, and Vlad may have more than he can handle.

As I read this book, I realized I had made a horrible mistake. I had prematurely bought the entire vladmir tod series. The more I read, the more I wondered why I kept reading. However, to just say "I don't like it" isn't fair, so I'll try to be constructive with my feedback.
vladmir needs to grow as a character. throughout these books, he stays basically the same in his thinking and actions. in fact, everyone does (until the end of the series in which everyone becomes evil for no reason). We need to learn more about the characters as time goes by, and they need to change in response to the things that happen around them and this story doesn't do that.

So far, I've been rather so-so on the Vladimir Tod Series. As an older teen, I've felt the first book was rather childish, meant for middle school and elementary kids. I never had a really strong feel for the characters or the plot, which felt lacking. I did like it enough, however, to keep reading. The second book was better, if only by a little. But this third book in the series is a vast improvement. I loved it!

In this new installment, Vlad grows as a person, changing from a naive preteen to a (at least somewhat more mature) young man. More and more problems are being thrust Vlad's way, giving the story more layers and depth. Tenth Grade Bleeds has a somewhat more darker tone to it than the previous books, especially when it comes to Vlad dealing with his growing bloodlust, but that's what I like best about the book. I also like how, for the first time, Henry didn't just follow Vlad around like a typical sidekick, and actually had his own opinion on some things. I like Vlad's relationship with Meredith, although the loser-hooking-up-with-popular-girl routine is nothing new, and Meredith seems a little too good to be true. I especially like how Vlad started hanging out with the goths at school. I couldn't help but think "it's about time!"

There were still quite a few things to keep me from giving this book five stars--the writing still seems too childish at times to be a Teen book, and there were still quite a few inconsistencies and illogical moments in the plot (especially how Vlad wound up at his final confrontation with D'Ablo). But what I like about this series is that, so far, every book has gotten better. Tenth Grade Bleeds was a great new installment in the series, and I have high hopes for the rest of the books to follow.

This Book Series by Heather Brewer is very good. You become attached to the characters. The growing relationships between Todd and his human Aunt Nellie, his guardian and his friends. His interaction with his Vamphire Uncle Otis is indearing. His close growing friendship with Joss the Vampire slayer and the Goth kids.
I would highly recommend this series to any reader from teens to the older generation who just enjoy a good read.

I have to say, this book was great! Vladimir Tod is the coolest, hottest, and most fangtastic vampire ever! Not only does Vlad have a good heart and mind, he has a sense of fear and mortality that most books can't capture. He maybe a vampire, but he is also half human, a weakness compared to other vampires. They look down on him and call him a mistake, either to his face or in their messed up head. Either way, Vlad knows what they say. He will have to face challenges for both the human world and the human world. The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod is a really great series. Every middle school to college boy or girl will have a fun time reading this awesome book. You know what they say, this book bleeds goodness!
