The penultimate chapter in the thrilling vampire series!
Things have taken a darker turn for the half-human teenager with an appetite for blood. Joss, a vampire slayer and Vlad’s former friend, has moved back to Bathory. A mysterious and powerful new vampire, Dorian, appears with a shocking secret and an overwhelming desire to drink Vlad’s blood. And Vlad’s arch enemy, D’Ablo, has a sinister plan to eliminate Vlad once and for all. With death threatening from every angle, Vlad will have to use every ounce of his skill and training to survive, but nothing can prepare him for what awaits him in the end.

This is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series.

Vlad is in year eleven and life isn't any easier. Actually, he's still suffering the heartbreak of having to break up with Meredith to keep her safe, and can't let go of the friendship he shared with the vampire slayer, Joss. And when Joss and his family comes to Bathory, it's clear that he's there to finish what he started--and failed--after staking Vlad.

At least his uncle is now living nearby, and his other vampire mentor is also going to stay in Bathory. Not to mention the new and very creepy Dorian, who is obsessed with tasting Vlad's blood. Or the annoying D'Ablo who is still determined to steal the Pravus power from Vlad. If only school was easier, but it's not. The pesky Eddie is still determined to reveal to the world that Vlad is a vampire, Meredith is seeing Joss, and Vlad is now using the nice girl Snow as his happy meal.

Looks like life is never going to get easier--or better--for Vlad. Not after the shocking last chapter. Wow!

I'm still really enjoying this series, though I have to admit that I started having some mixed feelings about Vlad's behaviour. Especially the way he treats poor Snow, and refises to let go of the idea of Meredith during most of this book. He's maturing into a vampire more than a human now, so it's interesting to see how his thoughts and actions are slowly changing. This series is very well written, that's for sure!

I have one more book to go, and I just can't imagine how Vlad's story is going to end... Can't wait to find out, though. :)
