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. Now he's a senior, and in this final, action-packed book in the series, Vlad must confront the secrets of the past, unravel the mystery of who he really is, make decisions about his future, and face his greatest enemy. It's a senior year that totally bites.
About the Author
Heather is the author of the bestselling The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, which has been described as 'deliciously gory'. She was not your typical teen growing up, and she's certainly not your typical adult now. Her favourite colours are black and black. She believes it's quite possible that vampires are running our world's governments. And she begrudges the fact that it's not socially acceptable for people to sleep in coffins. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two children.
As "The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod" comes to an end, Twelfth Grade Kills returns readers to Vlad's story just as he is seeing a vision of his father while fighting the Slayer Joss. Temporarily distracted by the vision, he is able to get his anger under control. Vlad escapes one fight, just in time to find another waiting for him at home; he is to stand trial and be executed for his father's crimes. Vlad reveals the vision of his father and is given until the end of the year to find his father or die for his crimes. When Tomas, Vlad's father, finally reveals himself to Vlad he has mixed emotions—anger for abandonment, relief that he is not crazy, and excitement that he has his father back after eight years of mourning him. Vlad has only a few months to figure out how to save his own life or come to terms with the fact that he must die to save the ones he loves. Everything comes to an emotional and heated end when Vlad learns about his father's intentions. Twelfth Grade Kills is a thrilling and dramatic story that will keep readers guessing until the end whether or not Vlad will save the day and send them racing to the finish to find out. Brewer has written a satisfying conclusion to the series and extols the importance of family and love. Reviewer: Kirsten Shaw
