Heather Brewer. ELEVENTH GRADE BURNS

By the way, This was my first full book I read on my new Kindle! I wondered how I would enjoy reading on an e-reader, but now I can't believe I waited this long to get one! It's intuitive, easy to use, and I completely adore it! Now on to Vlad...

THE CHRONICLES OF VLADIMIR TOD #4
We re-join Vlad just as he’s beginning his junior year. He’s still depressed over having to break up so suddenly with Meredith, and things aren’t looking up. Henry tells him that Joss, the slayer from freshman year, is back. In fact, he and his family are moving the Bathory permanently. Then a scary, but intriguing new vampire shows up in town  and wants something from Vlad. Plus, the trial against Otis is looming.
But there are a few positive aspects to Vlad's junior year. Otis has moved to town for good and is teaching at the high school. Vlad is spending more time with Snow at the crypt club, and he's becoming quite attached to her. Maybe things won't be so bad after all...

This was probably the most suspenseful book in the series so far! Perhaps because there was so much going on and there was so much at stake (no pun intended). I also loved the new characters. Dorian is fascinating. I wanted to know more about Snow. And the last character introduced, well, I can't even say without spoiling anything, but gah,  that's one way to make me immediately yearn for the sequel! (comes out this September!)

Check out the trailer below & Heather Brewer has an awesome website here.
