What we thought:

If your teen is looking for something different to the ‘vampires’ that Twilight offers, this is the book to choose!

Alex van Helsing is a teenager who knows very little about the paranormal until he comes face-to-face with something he’s always been told “doesn’t happen”.

The adventure that Alex, Sid, Paul and his other friends face makes for an action packed book from the very beginning. Alex realises his destiny as a vampire hunter and jumps right into the role - boots and all!

From delving into a secret underground vampire hunting orginaisation (that's closer to home than you think) to finding out who Alex really is, this book has it all. This page-turner will have your kids begging for more.

Parents be warned: This book, although aimed at teens on the whole, is definitely better suited for the older or more mature teen.
