The Vampire Hunters

The Vampire Hunters

Summary

On my thirteenth birthday, my life changed for ever. That's when I learned the shocking truth: I'm a half-vampire.
Think that sounds cool? Think again! I've been attacked by an evil vampire bat, had huge cravings for my best friend's blood, and nearly died from eating a pizza (half-vampires aren't great with garlic). Writing my secret blog is the only thing that's kept me from going completely crazy.
As if life couldn't get any more complicated, there have been some vicious attacks in the local woods. Vampire-mad Tallulah (definitely not my girlfriend) thinks a super-vampire is behind them - and she's desperate to prove it, with a mysterious chain that's supposed to glow red-hot when a vampire is close by.
And I have a horrible feeling that the chain's going to turn red-hot any day now . . .

A new novel from award-winning author Pete Johnson that taps into the very current interest in vampires - done with Pete's humorous, accessible touch.

Reviews

  • It's a light-hearted, quick-paced read that is perfect for teens and tweens, but that I even enjoyed myself as a grown-up! It's a great mixture of excitement, humour and slightly scary bits but nothing at all that will give younger readers nightmares
