Pacer Review: Voice of the Undead Countdown Minus 39

With Alex Van Helsing: Voice of the Undead coming out on July 26, I'm counting down 60 cool vampire things. Today:
Newcastle Pacer Reviews Alex Van Helsing Series
Check it out-- Darla Welchel took the time to review the first two books in the Alex Van Helsing series, including the upcoming Voice of the Undead:
Henderson's follow-up novel to Vampire Rising, Alex Van Helsing: Voice of the Undead, due to be released July 26, 2011, takes our young hero into greater dangers as his work with the secret society of vampire hunters continues.

The book begins with a nail-biting motorcycle chase and of course, more vampires. Van Helsing soon uncovers a plot to turn Glenarvon's sister school and its students into mindless killing machines. And he also realizes that one mad vamp chick has a personal vendetta against him.

Armed with an arsenal of cool toys that would have James Bond envious, Alex takes on the bad guys and gals with fangs and attempts to save the world once again, this time, from a truly vile vamp called Ultravox.

Written with young readers in mind, the Alex Van Helsing series is written with more action and less clever dialogue, but still the story held my attention. The hero will appeal to young boys, so if you have one who is a reluctant reader, these books might just be the ticket to draw him into the world of literature.

Although the target audience is young males, I believe girls will enjoy the tough vamp-kicking girls in the books as well. Plus there is just enough budding teen romance to entice young girls - nothing as steamy as Twilight.
