Book Review - Alex Van Helsing : Voices of the Undead

About the Book
Now that Alex is in the know about the deadly vampires that live--and hunt--clustered around his boarding school, everything is different. Putting his talents to use, Alex is training with the Polidorium to become a vampire hunter, just like his Van Helsing ancestors. Sure, he's only fourteen, but c'mon, this runs in his blood.Meanwhile, Alex's arch-nemesis Elle, a vampire whose youthful appearance and blond hair disguise a vengeful rage, is out to get him before a powerful leader called "Ultravox" arrives on the scene. Ultravox specializes in assassinations, but who is he targeting? Dodging Elle's attacks, Alex is on a mission to uncover Ultravox's deadly plan before his friends and his school become collateral damage. There's no time to report back; innocent lives hang in the balance, and it's up to Alex to act now--or else.

My Take on the Book
This book is a great follow up to Vampire Rising.I enjoyed that book and this book continues the adventure. Seeing that Alex now knows what he is up against, this book goes a bit deeper onto the adventure side of things. Like the first book, this book kept me on the edge of my feet and kept me asking what is going to ask next. There is an edge to the authors writing that intrigues me. I love how he intertwines so many concepts and makes the reader think about what they are reading as well as providing a fun, enjoyable adventure that all can appreciate! This was a great book and I hope that there will be additional books to come!
