As a teenage vampire, Vlad has spent the last four years trying to handle the pressures of school while sidestepping a slayer out for his blood.

It's a senior year that totally bites.

My Review 

I know that this review is a little late, since this book was released back in April, but I finally got the book that I've wanted to read for quite a while now. And I wasn't disappointing in the slightest. 

From the start, Twelfth Grade Kills seemed exactly like the book I'd been expecting. A very interesting plot, a lot of mystery, well-paced, all-together a great book. And the book continued so right to the end. I was loving it! There were a lot of plot twists that (Trying to be vague here as to not spoil it for anyone) practically liquified my brain with the sheer confusion and awesomeness of it. Heather Brewer did an absolutely wonderful job of making this book not only enjoyable, but it also kept you wanting to know what happens next the whole way through.

This book will probably be a favorite of anyone who is in to the non-Twilightish genre of vampires. When I say non-Twilightish I mean these vampires don't sparkle. This is the more diabolical and terrifying type of vampire. The awesome kind. If this kind of vampire interests you, I would very much recommend this series to you.

I loved that "Because vampires don't sparkle" reference. 


  1. I'm a big fan of the series and loved this book. Can't wait for Slayer to come out. My only complaint is a bit of the final plot twist seemed (too) sudden, but I think Heather Brewer handled it pretty well.
    (And I nearly woke up the household laughing at the "vampires don't sparkle" bit. Bravo, Heather.)

  2. Yay! Awesome vampires! I've never actually read any of this series yet...I really need to...Looks like I've got a lot to look forward to!
