TENTH GRADE BLEEDS by Heather Brewer

It's another sucky year at Bathory High for Vladimir Tod. The evil vampire D'Ablo is hunting for the ritual that could steal Vlad's powers. His best friend Henry doesn't want to be his drudge anymore. And as if all that weren't enough, it's getting harder for Vlad to resist feeding on the people around him. When months go by with no word from Uncle Otis and D'Ablo shows up demanding Vlad's father's journal, Vlad realizes that having a normal high school year is the least of his concerns. Vlad needs to act fast, and even his status as the Pravus won't save him this time...

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

Vlad is now in the tenth grade, and it looks like things are finally starting to go his way. The bullies seem to be staying away, his dream girl is now his girlfriend, and his uncle has stayed all summer.

However, all good things come to an end. After his uncle leaves, Vlad can't get in touch with him when he needs him the most. He finds out most kids still think he's a loser--even though he's with Meredith. Eddie Poe keeps following him around with a camera, obsessed with revealing his secret to the world. And someone else is stalking him--again. He's also having a hard time controlling his bloodthirst. Oh, and then there's the fact his best friend no longer wants to be his drudge...

Yeah, things aren't going too well. And they get worse, before they get any better!

I really like this series! I always have such an awesome time reading these books. Though I have to admit that although there's still plenty of fun, the older Vlad gets, the darker he seems to become in his thoughts and actions. He's also maturing a lot, and making some sacrifices along the way. As well as keeping some very dark secrets.

I can't wait to follow him into the end of his story. I have two more books to go. Thanks to the local library, they're waiting on my TBR pile!
