ALEX VAN HELSING VOICE OF THE UNDEAD PDF

Here is what I had to say about the first book in the Alex Van Helsing series :. This was another hard to rate YA fantasy adventure novel. It has a nice hook a Van Helsing is sent to a Geneva boarding school after getting in to trouble at his previous school and finds out his famous last name more appropriate than he ever thought and some good action but it just feels little thin somehow. The set up is good but it just never really grabbed my attention.

Here is what I had to say about the first book in the Alex Van Helsing series :. This was another hard to rate YA fantasy adventure novel. It has a nice hook a Van Helsing is sent to a Geneva boarding school after getting in to trouble at his previous school and finds out his famous last name more appropriate than he ever thought and some good action but it just feels little thin somehow.

The set up is good but it just never really grabbed my attention. And I am glad I did because it picked up the pace and character development creating a much more satisfying story.

Now that Alex is in the know about the deadly vampires that live—and hunt—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.

Ultravox specializes in assassinations, but who is he targeting? As I noted above, this second book was much better than the first in my opinion. The plot was more involved and the balance between action and character development was much better. As a YA adventure novel the plot is not all that complex and the characters are not particular deep but the story develops nicely and the tension builds with some nice side stories.

In a way the first book serves as an introduction to the characters and the basic set-up of the series. This time around you really felt like their was risk involved for key characters. And the multiple plot threads mean a more complex interaction between them.

You finally begin to get a sense of who the characters are and the setting seems three dimensional rather than flat and thin. Ultravox was a nice villain and the concept added a thread that could pull both the action of the school s and the larger vampire versus human battle.

The continuing battle with Elle and the development of the Merrill brothers added a nice touch as well — some tension and an extra burst of action. Looks like this is turning into a nice series for those looking for action adventure with a vampire twist.
