Review: Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising (Henderson)

Title: Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising
Author: Henderson
Genre: Adventure, Fiction, Vampires
Pages: 272
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Yes, Mrs. Yusko read a vampire book. And I actually liked it! I think that means that the book must be good. A descendant of legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, fourteen-year-old Alex is stuck at boarding school near Lake Geneva, Switzerland, when he finds himself drawn into a web of intrigue. It turns out that Lake Geneva is also home to a secret school for vampires. It’s up to Alex and Secret Agent Sangster (cleverly disguised as a teacher) to fulfill his family destiny and stop the vampires' plans.

Drawing from centuries of actual vampire lore and literature, this is a thriller that fans of vampire stories and spy books (Alex Rider, Young Bond, etc.) will definitely enjoy! I think that this might be the first in a series about Alex and his vampire slaying adventures...at least, I hope!

To answer your question-- yes, it's a series! The second book comes out in Summer 2011.

Thanks for the kind words!
