This may be a book written for children but after downloading it for my own kids, I took a sneak peak! A few pages in and I was hooked till the end! Can't wait for the children to enjoy it as much as I have and I do so hope that Vlad will be back!! A fantastic read by Lorraine Mace
Logan's thoughts ... I loved this book! Vlad is really funny, how can you be a vampire if you don't like eating meat? Doesn't he even eat bacon sandwiches? I didn't like it when Vlad thought his mummy and daddy were dead, that mad me sad and when the others came to steal his money, they made me mad! But when Vlad goes off on his adventure, I was really excited! He did loads of fun things and I wish I could do that too ... I didn't like that it ended – I want to know what happened and can't wait for the next one! My thoughts ... This is a fantastic adventure for children! Vlad is just adorable, an eleven-year-old half human, half vampire who hasn't fully become a vampire yet, and he doesn't like meat, oh, and he has asthma too ... Then his mum and dad disappear, and his evil family turn up to 'help' him, which in vampire terms means steal his inheritance. This sends Vlad off on the adventure of a lifetime. A fast paced and well-thought-out plot, Vlad the Inhaler is perfect for any wanderlust-filled child. Too old for Logan to read on his own as he's only six but he adored it and, we had a great time reading this one over a few nights. We couldn't do just one chapter, he's turning in to me! It helped him to understand that even eleven-old-year old vampires are scared sometimes so it's OK for him to be scared of things too. I strongly recommend this for any child, even the younger ones as it is gripping and a wonderful adventure!
This review has been written by my 10 year old daughter who has read the book. The book is about a huypre (half human half vampire) called Vlad who is asthmatic, whose parents have gone missing and he thinks his parents have died and his evil relatives turn up and want Vlad's Dad's profit. To make everything worse his Mum was human and his Dad a non sucking vampire, his evil relatives hate hupyries and want to kill him. I loved this book because it was so amazing and descriptive, I didn't want to stop reading and kept reading way past my bedtime as was enjoying the book so much. I am really looking forward to the next one and rate this one 5 stars.
In the start of this exciting and beautifully illustrated series, the teenage hero, Vlad is an asthmatic hupyre––part vampire and part human. When Vlad’s evil vampire relatives––Aunt Valentyna, Uncle Viktor, cousins Gretchen and Boris––tell Vlad they have killed his parents, and attempt to takeover his family castle, Vlad sets out on a quest to defend his family name, his inheritance and, most of all, his life. Pursued incessantly by his lethal vampire relatives, Vlad goes on the run, starting a roller-coaster string of action-packed adventures that kept me turning the pages. In a riveting climax, Vlad must prove to the people of Malign village that his is not an evil vampire: he does not murder, nor does he drink blood. He must demonstrate that he is proud to be a hupyre. I would highly recommend Vlad The Inhaler for the 8-12 age group, but this tale’s interest is not restricted to children. As an adult reader, I found myself smiling at the author’s clever puns and plays on words. I was offered a free copy of Vlad The Inhaler in return for an honest review.
Vlad the inhaler is a phenomenal book. You can expect plenty of shocks and thrills as you read it. Vlad is quite a changing character and throughout the book he develops different skills that normal vampires have. I'm really looking forward to book number 2.
I read this book during a couple of train journeys to work. I'm not in the age-group it was written for but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It is a great story and I wanted to adopt the little Hupyre. Vlad is a very loveable character and manages to learn to live with being part-human and part-vampire. Most of the characters he is set with liked him because they wanted his blood...even some of his own family - but his human side wins the day. I liked Rexus too. Some great vampire dialogue
