8+: The Vampire Hunters - Pete Johnson

Release Date: 02/06/11


On my thirteenth birthday, my life changed for ever. That's when I learned the shocking truth: I'm a half-vampire. Think that sounds cool? Think again! I've been attacked by an evil vampire bat, had huge cravings for my best friend's blood, and nearly died from eating a pizza (half-vampires aren't great with garlic). Writing my secret blog is the only thing that's kept me from going completely crazy. As if life couldn't get any more complicated, there have been some vicious attacks in the local woods. Vampire-mad Tallulah (definitely not my girlfriend) thinks a super-vampire is behind them - and she's desperate to prove it, with a mysterious chain that's supposed to glow red-hot when a vampire is close by. And I have a horrible feeling that the chain's going to turn red-hot any day now ...This is a new novel from award-winning author Pete Johnson that taps into the very current interest in vampires - done with Pete's humorous, accessible touch.


OK, this is the second novel in the trilogy by Pete Johnson and whilst I missed the first I don’t feel that I’ve been cheated or missed out on some of the humour within the book. Add to this a good pace, cracking characters which when backed with good solid imagination and a writing style that will keep the readers glued from the start to finish and this book really will win people round.

Finally if you’re looking for a series that has a wonderful concept from start to finish, a character that readers can associate with which when backed with some cracking twists that many won’t see coming and it’s a story that really was a lot of fun to read.
