Regina This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [Vlad twelffh her into a vampire. See 1 question about Twelfth Grade Kills…. Lists with This Book. May 12, Krys rated it it was amazing Shelves: The final book, Twelfth Grade Kills yes, I screwed up the spelling againis now out for all to read.
I just finished it. It was exactly what I wanted. For those who have not read it, a warning. These books are light, especially at the start. Vlad begins the series in eighth grade, which each successive book upping to the next grade level. This means we start with Vlad as a naive young boy. He eats a ton and is a little immature.
Fast forward four books and nothing has changed! It feels good to say goodbye to these characters. Thanks very much, Ms.
Brewer, for entertaining me most heartily. I look forward to seeing what you pull out of your bag of tricks next.
The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Twelfth Grade Kills
Apr 27, Bg rated it it was amazing. The wait for this book was absolutely nerve racking and it was even worse since I desperately wanted to know what happened next after the last book ended in the worst ever cliff hanger.
ki,ls But with this final book- and the way it ended I honestly don’t see how it can be the final book- was worth the wait. I absolutely loved it. And seeing that I’ve only read it in two days I’m extremely exhausted but extremely happy I didn’t wait to borrow it from the library or allow myself sleep this past couple The wait for this book was absolutely nerve racking and it was even worse since I desperately wanted yrade know what happened next after the last book ended in the worst ever cliff hanger.
And seeing that I’ve only read it in two days I’m extremely exhausted but extremely happy I didn’t wait to chroniclees it from the library or allow myself sleep this past couple days. This time around Vlad is down to the wire in this life; He’s missing Snow whom he actually loves, he doesn’t want to die by the Vampire Council evil hands chtonicles by his friend -dispite all the odds- Joss, he doesn’t want to believe that he’s insane from drinking a vampires blood not to mention you feel insane just reading it and in all this he still has to remember school every day.
So much happened in this book that I’m suprised that it wasn’t longer, but I still feel very content with the flow and how it ended. Auntie Brewer really delievered with kick ass action, jokes, and plenty of blood that would make Sweeney Tod look like a Disney, well something along those lines. But I still can’t except -though I’m sure in time I will- that this is the final book.
I love Vladimir, he’s probably the most relateable character I’ve read all year and I’m glad that we got the chance to meet. This is how you do real vampires. View all 9 comments. Nov 09, Kitty rated it it was ok Shelves: What a disappointing way to end the series. Once again, 12th grade suffers from the same problems that Heather has refused to address in her writing throughout the entirety of the series, either from sheer laziness or stubbornness I can’t say which, and in no other book was it so apparent as chrnicles – namely shoddy pacing and childish rendering of motivations and feelings.
I wish I could remind her first hand that the best way for any author vldaimir relate what their character is feeling on the page is What a disappointing way to tood the series. Someone in your life has just died? Your world has been turned upside down? The apocalypse seems to be around the corner? I don’t need to be told that you’re feeling upset and anxious. I can figure that out for myself. The next major problem is the complete and utter lack of pacing in this book. Throughout the series Heather has set up several major problems that seemed to be building up vladimmir a huge climax and yet instead of giving each one the page time it’s due she deals with them one after the other in lightening quick secession.
Each of these major topics is given only ONE chapter in which to resolve it’s self and not one of those chapters comes in chroncles over 5 pages long. That to me reeks of lazy writing – instead of rushing out this book she should have taken the time to craft kikls event carefully.
There’s a reason writers like King and Tweltfh put manuscripts down for vladikir at a time and then come back to them and this is exactly what those actions are designed to avoid.
You’d think that other than that I’d have something positive to say about this book since up until now the other books possessed some sort of charm which kept me from thinking them a total waste of time and yet there’s nothing. Tensions between characters are pale shadows of what they should be. When the major deaths in this book happened they seemed glossed over at best considering how disproportionate Vlad’s grieving was over a pair of deaths that happened years earlier in comparison to ones that occur right before his eyes.
And the plot holes! Dear god the plot holes are so big I could drive an army of semi-trucks through them and still kills enough room left over to have the Enterprise lead the calvary.
And while this is a personal gripe I do wish Mrs Brewer would take a page from King’s On Writing and stop describing her character’s wardrobes. Vladikir painfully bad and immature – “come tkd the dark side we have cookies”? Since when was that t-shirt popular with anyone over the age of 13?
Oh well, when all is said and done I keep asking myself what did I really expect? I read the series voluntarily and got pretty much all that I asked for – mindless brain munch good for in between midterms, plus let us not forget that as a female adult college student I’m chronicoes exactly the target audience here. I just can’t help from feeling disappointed though, despite everything I was looking foreword to seeing how the series would end and instead I got a hot mess that couldn’t even keep it’s own mythology straight much less tell a believable and convincing story.
As for this being the last of the Vlad books I don’t buy it. There’s so much left unsaid here that at times it literally seemed to be screaming “save stuff for od sequel!

View all 7 comments. Aug 27, Tracey rated it did not like it. I didn’t warm to this series fully until the fourth book, when I could overlook Brewer’s sometimes-clunky writing and flat portrayal of teen angst in favor of a strong arc involving Vlad’s father and Vlad’s place in the vampire realm.
Then this book ruined everything. After leaving readers to dangle at book four’s end with a great though not unexpected twist, Brewer picks up in this final book and tosses in another twist so rotten, I felt like she played a dirty trick for the sake of making th I didn’t warm to this series fully until the fourth book, when I could overlook Brewer’s sometimes-clunky writing and flat portrayal of teen angst in favor of a strong arc involving Vlad’s father and Vlad’s place in the vampire realm.
After leaving readers to dangle at book four’s end with a great though not unexpected twist, Brewer picks up in this final book twefth tosses in another twist so rotten, I felt like she played a dirty trick for the sake of making the story more exciting. I finished reading this book feeling like I’d been totally played.
Brewer seemed to prioritize plot over her character, destroying much of the good she had built with the sophistication of a six-year-old destroying her own carefully constructed block tower. I’ve read other, better books in which some heartbreaking deaths and betrayals were also necessary, and were rendered so that readers could see and understand the necessity. Brewer comes across as simply not skilled enough to pull it off.
Of all the ways she could have resolved this series, she went with something really unsatisfying. This series finale disappointed me like few others ever have. Knowing what I grads now, I wish I’d never read any of the books, and especially not this one. Nov 17, Deborah rated it liked it. I haven’t finished reading the book, but I have decided how I feel about it.
And I already know the basic ending. Spoilers don’t actually spoil the ending for me; they only encourage me to discover them for myself. As a teenager, I could relate to Vladimir; but, I don’t know if I’m the only one who feels this way, I have trouble imagining Vlad as a twelfth grader, 17 or 18 years old. The narrative provided portrays him as chrnoicles young boy he was when he started in the series. I honestly see no gro I haven’t finished reading the book, but I have decided how I kulls about it.
I honestly see no growth or maturity in his character. He sounds like a wimp. Also, what’s up gradde this Pravus stuff? It’s stupid enough to have Vlad be a Gary-Sue or whatever they’re calledbut then to have his girlfriend who-so-stereotypically-died-and-then-became-a-vampire-thanks-to-the-hands-of-a-stupid-boy be hinted at to be the Pravus too? I hate such cliffhangers, especially at the end of a series; end it on a definite note, like The Last Olympian or Ghost Hunter.
It’s funny how he couldn’t tell the future after that last kklls in the novel. And it’s even funnier that Snow may very well be what Heather Brewer wanted to be when she was a teen: I think Snow is just a better version of Brewer; I mean no offense when I say this, but I can see it.
