Book Summay on Ninth grade slays by heather brewer (In the vladimir tod series)


Heather Brewer's Second book in the Vladimir Tod series is called Ninth Grade Slays. It's a Fantastic book!!! This book was basically the sequel to her first of the series, Eighth Grade Bites. This book was about how Vlad had adjusted his life so far. In this book Vlad gets a letter from his Uncle, Otis that had said that there might be a Vampire Slayer out to kill Vlad in the little town of Bathory. He also makes a new friend, Joss, He's Henry's cousin. So far Vlad doesn't notice anything. In this book Vlad also has a few more interactions with Meredith, his crush. During the beginning of the book when Joss just arrives. Vlad goes to the winter dance. Alone. He finds out that Joss went to the dance with Meredith. So, Vlad decides to stay in the hallways, on the stairs. But to his surprise Meredith confesses she likes Vlad. He does as-well, and the chapter ends with Meredith kissing Vlad....

Later on he is sent to Siberia with his uncle, Otis.To meet a friend of his...and his father. His name was Vikas. Vikas had tutored Vlad for the time that he was staying in Siberia. During that time Vlad had lea rend very well from Vikas, and a bit from Otis. Otis and Vlad had gone somewhere and Vlad got to see his father again, but through Otis's memory...

In this book I had also noticed that Vlad was quite sympathetic. For example: Vikas was suggesting Vlad to take revenge on the bullies, and Eddie Poe. Vlad had argued not to do this, no matter what they did to him Vlad wouldn't hurt them. Vlad had eventually won the Argument.

After Vlad and Otis had left Siberia back to Bathory, Vlad had noticed that Otis was falling in love with Vlad's human aunt, Nelly. Otis wouldn't associate with Nelly because of the trouble he was already in by the Elaysian council. It was also forbidden to fall in-love with a mortal. Well, according to Elaysia.

Later that same day Otis had to leave, he didn't want Vlad or Nelly to get hurt because of him. A short time after Otis had left Vlad noticed someone was staring at him. He noticed his sharp fangs, he knew it was a vampire. He thought it was the slayer! He didn't know what to do, But the Vampire did. Within a split second the Vampire reached Vlad. He then sucked some of Vlad's blood and spit it out into a tube. Vlad had asked him who he was. He replied my name is Jasik, and that he isn't a slayer only a mere thief. Jasik had left in the time he came, off to wherever he was going. Vlad had fainted on his front doorstep thinking "But why my blood?"

Vlad had later been awoken by his drudge, Henry. Vlad didn't tell anyone about the incident.He then later finds himself thinking about the slayer, he abandoned the thought by leaving it as "misleading information." But, to his surprise it wasn't. It had come to him when he least expected it. It was Joss! He had found out while he was walking home with Joss from school. The only reason that Joss had come to Bathory was to slay the Vampire...

It was the night and Vlad had agreed to meet Joss somewhere to get some tips on how to slay a Vampire. But it was also the 4th year death anniversary of both Vlad's Parents... They had been killed in a fire, Vlad had awoken early and decided to turn off his parents Alarms, he thought then they might get some sleep. He then went to school. By the time he got home there were Firefighters and Ambulances surrounding his house, he went in to find both of his parents. Dead. Vlad was looking at there picture, and decided to go to the graveyard to go and meet them again. He did that every year. He finally reached the Graveyard, found his parent's graves, sat there and starting crying. Wishing that all of this was a dream. That they were still here. That it was all his fault...

When Vlad had gotten out of the cemetery He saw Jasik, Walking into Vlad's old house... Vlad had followed Jasik in there and finds out that D'ablo is alive!! He then just watches him from the other room...

Vlad then meet's Joss,for the lessons on how to slay a vampire. But instead Vlad tells Joss that a vampire drank his blood and got away with it. With Joss thinking it was the Vampire he had set out to slay,he asked Vlad where it went, Vlad's response was Stokerton.

Joss finally woke up Greg and they drove to Stokerton. Greg had no idea what they were driving for, since he didn't know Joss was a Vampire Slayer, so he kept on insisting that Vlad was going to Stokerton for a girl. He was insisting that Vlad was going for a girl because Vlad had paid Greg $30.00 to go to Stokerton, & in Greg's opinion, He wouldn't pay that much for just anything.

Vlad and Joss had finally got to Stokerton, & Vlad see's D'ablo within an instant Vlad points to D'ablo. Joss has a confused look on his face, he claims that is the man that hired him. Then D'ablo tells Joss to kill the Vampire: A.K.A Vlad. Joss finds out then stakes him in the chest, and left Vlad there to die.

Vlad is then Admitted into the hospital. Everyone came, even Joss. He said that he missed on purpose and that they think he is dead, and then abruptly leaves. Otis comes by and says he will be staying the whole summer. Nelly then just informs Vlad that the doctor's said he'll be in the hospital for about a month, despite how quickly he heals.

Vlad has gotten out of the hospital, and now in school. He meet's up with Meredith who asks him to the summer bash. In all, this book was amazing, & fascinating!!
