A few months ago I saw one of the books of this series on top of a book shelf and was intrigued by the cover art. I thought it was another angsty teen vampire book whatever, but I read the summary and was intrigued. At the time I didn't have any time to devote to reading much but now I have the time. I finished books one and two and I have been enjoying the series so far. Vlad is a half-vampire: vampire father, human mother. He's pretty cool. Completely shy around girls but can totally kick vampire butt. I gotta admit though that I have been sucked into this series partially because of Vlad's personality. I recommend this series. Anyone else read it already ??
