Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cody Elliot has just moved to Massachusetts from California. He hates his new town of New Sodom and is proud of his report card full of F's (even in homeroom). His dad, not so proud. Cody gets sent to a new school, Vlad Dracul.

It doesn't take long for Cody to realize that something is different about his fellow students. They wear sunglasses inside, they are strangely silent, and seem to be super-smart. After he sees someone's fangs he realizes the obvious- his classmates are vampires.

Most people would be creeped out by this, but not Cody. As it turns out, going to school with vampires is pretty sweet. Cody doesn't have to do much of anything. He gets free A's, a free ride through college, a free ride through life basically. All he has to do is get in the pool and pretend to play water polo once and a while.

It's when Cody decides to try to get real grades, make some friends, and actually try to win a game of water polo that things start to get messy. Vampires don't like messy very much. For Cody, life is about to get really interesting.

This book was really good, very hard to put down. It had a great plot and is full of mystery. I would suggest it to anyone who is a fan of vampires.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wildness and wonder at Vlad Dracul High 9 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a great book! I wish Rees would write more so I could read more of his stuff. He has managed to weave the general weirdness of high school (regular being only slightly less strange than vampire-type) into an exciting tale about the interconnectedness of wolfpeople, selkies, vampires and plain old people, to say nothing of lawyers who work for Leach, Swindol and Twist in the seemingly quiet New England town of New Sodom. His characters are very likable without being goody-goodies, and he's able to portray both teenagers and adults with perception and sympathy.
The novel begins with Cody in a classic sulk because his father has changed jobs and the family has had to move from California to New England. He's determined to show his displeasure by flunking every class at Cotton Mather High, and seems well on the way when his father announces that he's going to transfer him to one of the town's two private schools: Our Lady of Perpetual Homework or Vlad Dracul. At Vlad Dracul Cody finds, much to his surprise, a friend, a beautiful girl to fall in love with, and an astonishing lack of work - he can get straight As just by breathing, apparently. What could be better? Nothing - for a few days. And then he becomes determined to unravel the mystery of this school where everyone else seems to do loads of work, and he does nothing except lounge around and sit in the pool every day pretending that there's a water polo team and he's part of it!
Buy two copies - one for yourself and one for a very good friend who is guaranteed to love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down. 27 Feb. 2006
By K. Gilligan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
"Vampire High" by Douglas Rees was a great read. Cody Elliot is a normal high school kid who ends up at a school of all vampires. Well almost all vampires- the water polo team is made up of humans (apparently water is harmful to vampires). Cody tries his best to fit in, and ends up in more trouble then he bargained for. But armed with his new best friend, he's ready for anything.

The book was 226 pages, and I was sorry to see it end. I've found myself hoping that Douglas Rees will write a sequel so we can learn more about Cody- or even about Rees' vampire dwelling world. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys lighthearted, and/or amusing, supernatural novels.

****Update: As of July 2010 there is now a sequel available!
