Overview

Marcus, Tallulah, and Gracie are back in the third and final fast-paced, fun, and frightening vampire tale from Pete Johnson

Marcus, Tallulah, and Gracie are back in the third and final fast-paced, fun, and frightening vampire tale from Pete Johnson Life has never been more complicated for 13-year-old Marcus. With trying to hide his secret identity as a half vampire, control his thirst for blood, avoid garlic at all costs (no pizza!), and finally work up the courage to ask Tallulah out, he's got a lot on his plate. Along with Tallulah, Marcus is now working with local vampire expert Giles to try to work out how vampires can be stopped for good—and where they might strike next. Giles suspects there might be an attack at the Winter Fair, and it's certainly creepy enough. But before Marcus can delve deeper, he's in for a shock. He's being packed off to the ultrastrict Crammers College—a school for half vampires.

Reviews

"[Johnson's books are] highly accessible and always au fait with current tween preoccupations . . . But best of all, they are funny. It's the dialogue that really sparkles. . . . The Vampire Blog builds some real tension with the threat to Marcus, and there are some creepy scenes in the woods and some gruesome scenes with a goodly dollop of fangly terror. Perfect."  —Bookbag on Vampire Blog
