    I LOVED the end of this book It wasn t at all expected, and as soon as I finished it I wanted Vladimir really matures throughout the course of the story, and I think his character becomes a lot complex At the beggining I was a little unsure, but by the end I cared for him so deeply.Vlad matures a lot during the course of the story, mostly emotionally Although he s a half vampire, he s also a teenage boy He has a lot to deal with even excluding his vampire issues.I guess every high schooler faces simmilar issues, but it s hard to understand without reading about it When Vlad is upset, I really empathize with him, and I can t help but feel his pain I ve never been in love, but seeing him having to hurt Meredith I feel almost like I have.I feel like love is an important theme in this book There s one line at the end Like Meredith Like Henry Like Joss Like Otis Like Nelly Everything Everything. Vlad is listing all of the things he loves It seems weird out of context, but it s actually very meaningful He loves all of those people, but each in a different way.I understand that, and there are many types of love I love my sister and my dad both in different ways Although niether of those relationships are perfect, I couldn t live without either of them Love and hate are close emotions, and I don t always love my family But I do know that they ll always be there for me.I think that Vlad feels simmilarly for Otis, and maybe even Joss The author seems to want you to feel that Joss and Vlad can get along Although it does confuse me that at the end Joss tries to kill Vlad I know the character s motives, but not the author s What message was she trying to convey The author obviously meant to inflict some theme I m not sure exactly what that is, but it must have to do with how relationships aren t always crystal clear They re always complicated, and a lot of times don t work out the way you expect them to This actually applies to life in general Things never go exactly as planned, and you have to live with them the way they are.This may be a hard concept to accept, but it s true Vlad seems to be just getting to this toward the end of the story He s starting to just let things happen, and I think that that is the primary change in his character It strengthens him as not only a character, but as a person.I think that most people in the real world realize this to, and that is one of the main differences between a kid and an adult Children want things to go their way and who could blame them Adults on the other hand are better at just letting things happen Whether anyone ever truly realizes the extent of this is hard to say But life is full if you think you are controling it.

    As always this book was amazing, I mean what else should you expect from Heather Brewer and her series of Vladmir Tod If you thought book number 3 was action packed and amazing, then you really should brace yourself for book number 4 The blurb to this book explains eveything that happens in a nut shell Eleventh grade at Bathory High is draining Vladimir Tod Joss, a professional vampire slayer and Vlad s former friend, has moved back to town The powerful vampire Dorian has an overwhelming desire to drink Vlad s blood And his arch enemy, D Ablo, has brought Vlad s Uncle Otis to trial for crimes against vampires So much for dating When the tables turn on Vlad, he has just enough time to return to Bathory for his final good byes I always feel bad for Vlad because his life is so difficult and unfair His only father figure Otis is being put on trial for the killing of Ignatius the vampire, and trial is another word for Killing while dealing with sad thoughts of his uncle dying Vlad also has to deal with a lot of Drama between his 2 drudge snow, and Henry Vlad finds out about himself and what future awaits him as the beloved, and hated Praves ruler of vampires, and master of all humans We meet new and old people here Vikas an Joss the mean vampire slayer comes back for a visit Also a new comer Dorine who wants badly to drink vlads blood This book is all about the problems that vlad has been facing ever since 8th grade, and the problems that he soon has to fsce in the future I really liked this book and would read it over and over again I was sad to hear that the next book, Twelfth Grade Kills, is the last book in the seirs I will miss Vlad and all the charcters, and I will also miss Heathers heavenly writting.

    Why haven t I been reading this series already Vladimir Tod s story is a great vampire story nothing sparkles, but Tod s half human, half vampire nature leads him to claim to prefer to not drink human blood so kind of a vegetarian The Slayer vampire conflict will resonate with any Buffy Angel fan, but the bromance sorry, I just couldn t help myself there will really appeal to male readers In this episode, Vlad s struggle with his junior year in high school and the heartbreak he feels over breaking up with Meredith and the confusion over his feelings for Snow, as well as his sense of loss over his friendship with Joss are normal, everyboy things The vampire parts just add to the teen angst, and the drama There s the Parvus prophecy, vampires who want to kill him, his uncle dating his aunt gross, right and above all, the Slayer s back Now I have to go read about eighth through tenth grade if you like vampire books that aren t too gory and don t sparkle , you should, too.ARC provided by publisher.

    I really loved this book, probably than all the others so far There were so many romantic aspects There were so many moments that were mysterious There were so many moments of power Moments of greed Bloodlust Death But most of all, caring And that is what I love so much about this series There is pain, death and betrayal But in these books, it all comes down to relationships Loving ones, hating ones, and ones of friendship and family Vlad is not so much a vampire, as he is a human He is caring and does his best to save people around him, even when it s a vicious vampire slayer that will stop at nothing to kill him The world has good and bad people in it But who those people are, they get to choose You always have a choice when it comes to changing your ways, and no one can take that away.

    EDIT Changed Brewer s name and pronouns I m surprised myself that Eleventh Grade Burns actually got an above two stars rating from me I m glad that the story has picked up but it s a shame that it s taken the second to last book for me to get somewhat into this series.In Eleventh Grade Burns Vladimir Tod not only has to deal with his Junior year of high school but also his old vampire slayer friend Joss moving back, a powerful vampire named Dorian who wants his half human blood, and his uncle Otis s upcoming Elysian trial Vlad s got a lot to deal with this school year Not to mention D ablo is still scheming on how to do him in.PlotThe plot in Eleventh Grade Burns was much better than the other three books This one was much vampire oriented We spent less time with Vlad in school and time with him in Elysia and among other vampires This is honestly what I wanted in the beginning of the series Having a half human, half vampire protagonist is cool, but not when the main focus is on the human aspect of him There are plenty books about humans in high school people can read about, the books in The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod should not have been one of them.This is also the book where the story finally moves forward In the previous books the story did move forward a little but not nearly enough We were given these threadbare plots for the previous books and it s only now that we ve got a book with substance If I wasn t so adamant about finishing series then I would have given up the first or second book and I definitely wouldn t have made it this far.WritingThe writing is around the same It is slowly getting better but you can still see the amateurishness in the text For example, Brewer overuses phrases You can see a lot of young or inexperienced writers doing this Her editor should have caught that For Brewer, he uses as is , licked their lips , and bit his lip way too much It was very noticeable Regular scenes where nothing is really going on are written okay but when it comes to scenes that require strong emotion, Brewer falls short in this area There are scenes that are supposed to be tense, sad, high action, etc., but they aren t My complaints in the earlier books was that they had this monotonous tone throughout the entire book This also applies to Eleventh Grade Burns The plot in this book was exciting but the writing didn t reflect that.CharactersVlad is given the most screen time in Eleventh Grade Kills Before there was Otis and Henry but this book is most exclusively Vlad And yet, I still don t like Vlad He has grown as a person, I will concede that, but he still comes off as a jerk He tugs Snow around by the heart because he s unsure and instead of telling her this he encourages her He also is a hypocrite, getting mad at Nelly for thinking there s good in everybody, especially Joss, when he did and continued to do the exact same things I was glad to see that he was treating Henry a lot better but it shouldn t have taken Henry telling Vlad for him to figure it out himself I can appreciate Vlad as a character but I still don t like him because of his past actions.Things I Didn t LikeOnce again my main gripes come down to the prophecy and the vampire lore in this world We see of the vampire council but we still don t know anything about the actual powers of vampires, where they came from, what they are and aren t affected by and for what reasons, etc There is little that we know about Brewer s vampires.My other gripe is the prophecy Not only do I not like prophecies, but I also don t like it when they are set in stone I can handle prophecies where they have a possibility of coming true but might not, depending on the circumstances And what I don t get is why should any of the characters believe the prophecy will come true The prophecy also mentions that the Pravus is unkillable but Vlad is not any So why should we believe that things pertaining to the prophecy cannot change as well DiversityPractically none of the characters are described but it is safe to assume they are all white, even the oldest vampires Everybody is also straight and able bodied, except D ablo D ablo is missing a hand so that does count as a disability but it s never really mentioned and he s the bad guy so I wouldn t really count that.OverallIf you couldn t tell by my three star rating, I did like Eleventh Grade Burns better than its prequels I liked it well enough but I didn t really like it The way this series started off has soured me to the actual good parts of this book I ll just be happy when I finish the last book.Here is a link to my notes.

    Let me start off by saying, the ending of this book left me with my jaw on the floor Didn t see THAT coming In this book, we see the return of Henry s cousin and Vlad s former friend, Joss Vlad made a tough decision at the end of book 3 and must deal with the consequences in this and the final book in the series.Otis makes a return to Bathory and Bathory High Schoolas a teacher Vlad is enjoying having his uncle around often, but it won t be long before he ll be gone forever And a new vampire in town, Dorian, wants nothing than to drink every drop of Vlad s blood Vlad s relationship with Snow becomes complicated as he tries to work through his feelings He has to deal with an old flame and an old friend how is he going to make it through Eleventh Grade.This is the first year Vlad skips Matthew s Halloween party He goes to The Crypt to celebrate with his Goth friends, October, Snow, Sprat, Kristoff, and Andrew His appetite is growing stronger and others are in danger Some one close to him senses the change in him.Otis has his pre trial to face the charges on Tomas Tod There is a surprising twist and the ending was very unexpected I was glad that I had the last book from the library or I would have felt like I did when I finished Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins It was something like this Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Cliffhanger, much review link

    The book I read was The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod Eleventh Grade Burns The reason I choose this book was because I read the other books in the serious and I couldn t stop reading until the end This book is fiction and it takes place in a town and most of the time it takes place in a house or at the school The main character is Vladimir but everyone calls him Vlad and he is a teen but he is different because he is part human and part vampire In this book he is still wanting to feed from his classmates and but when he gets a new drudge named Snow when he needs human blood Snow is always there to give it to him but sometimes he gets out of control but the problem does start when and old friend Joss comes back it is hard for Vlad because Vlad is tired of thinking that Joss still wants to kill but than is somewhat true because even thought Joss wants to be friends with Vlad he still can t get over the fact that Vlad is part vampire The main problem is the fact that Vlad when his old friend Joss wants to kill him and when he wants to kill people for blood There is also a problem when Eddie and boy that know Vlad is vampire wants to tell the whole world and want to famous because of it The problem is not solved because there is an other book that should explain everything I would say that this is a good book that keeps your feet because it is so exciting and so funny that you just want to keep reading and reading this serious until you are done with it.

    Ohhhh, Vlad He slightly irritated me in this one Don t get me wrong, I understand Vladimir is growing up and is being immature, but half his problems would disappear if he wasn t so naive Or gave his enemies the benefit of the doubt This people try to kill him and he always shows mercy It drove me insane.That ending though I have to read the final book RIGHT NOW
