Alex Van Helsing, 14-year-old Polidorium agent-in-training and descendent of Abraham Van Helsing of Dracula, returns in Jason Henderson’s new book, Voice of the Undead.
Suspicious things are afoot at Glenarvon Academy in Geneva, and as usual, Alex Van Helsing is in the thick of them. Continually harassed by the vampire Elle, a name readers will recognize from the first book, Alex gets into deeper trouble when a new villain, Ultravox, arrives at the Scholomance.
Voice of the Undead has a few new characters for the readers to love, including Ultravox, as well as old friends like Sid, Paul, Minhi, and Mr. Sangster. There are also still plenty of cool techno-gadgets and weapons to go around, not to mention motorcycles, WaveRunners, yachts, and, of course, wooden stakes.
Alex’s character continues to grow in Voice of the Undead, and soon he is learning more and more about himself and his family. He’s still very relatable and very funny, and fans will enjoy learning more about him.
