Aug 03, Ernest Cline rated it it was amazing. But rest assured, if this book sucked, I would still have to be honest and tell you. Luckily, this book totally kicks ass. No small feat, considering the glut of vampire books in the past few years. It’s made me vann the good old days, when vampires were just unholy undead abominations that needed to be destroyed.
The vampires in Voice of the Undead are evil bloodsucking fiends without pity or remorse, and they all deserve a wooden stake through their black, bloodless hearts. Well, nearly all of them do. Enter Alex Van Helsing, a fourteen year old descendant of the famous vampire hunter who faced off against Dracula.
Alex has heightened senses that can alert him to the presence of evil, but he still has a tough time understanding girls. Don’t these ladies realize that he’s a kick ass vampire slayer with a motorcycle and hepsing really sweet weapons?
I dug the first book in this series, but Voice of the Undead totally ups the ante. Cool James Bond style gadgetry.
I really, really enjoyed it. Aug 27, Qt rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked the first book in this series, and I think I liked this second one even better.
It’s fast-paced and has plenty of action and humor. Jul 26, Mitch rated it really liked it. Woah, if I’d known how much improved Voice of the Undead is compared to Vampire RisingI wouldn’t have waited a year to read this.
I’m going to throw around the word better a lot, but it’s all true – this book is better plotted, better paced, better developed, better everything. But most importantly, not only does this sequel totally vice the first book out of the water, it’s also a really good book in its own right.
From the very first page, I just knew this was going to be a wild and totally d Woah, if I’d undeaad how rhe improved Voice of the Undead is compared to Vampire RisingI wouldn’t have waited a year to read this.
From the very first page, Helsign just knew this was going to be a wild and totally different ride. There’s no slow buildup or mythology dump before the vampires really make their move, nope, from the very first awesome motorcycle chase scene I’m thrown straight into the action. Henderson really stepped up his game – while Vampire Rising was pretty straightforward and mostly withheld the action until the Scholomance scenes, here, there’s actually a fairly complex plot at work and the action’s pretty well interspersed throughout the story.
I never knew when evil vampire Elle would pop up, or Alex or one of his friends would be in danger. And the lf villain, Ultravox, nasty plans that one. Another part of it’s also how well the boarding school scenes tie into the vampire slash action scenes this time around.
I don’t mean just the bloodsucking worm attack at the beginning – although that too was one hell of a scene, very creative – but the chapters spent following Alex’s Glenarvon Academy friends and classmates around are way more than just side plots like they were before.
The Merrill brothers helwing to be more than typical boarding school bullies. Best friend and resident vampire expert Sid got something to do – yes, really, just be patient, it’ll apex sense.
And od, besides one weird incident involving chalk and contacts, the entire plot came together really really well, I never felt like the action jumped around at all. But best of all, the villain, Ultravox aka Jonathan Frene, he’s just insidious in a way that Icemaker could never be. Without giving away his specific powers and plans, there’s a reason this book’s titled Voice of the Undead. And I especially like how his conflict with Alex touches on so many other aspects of Alex’s character, his family legacy as a Van Helsing, his relationship with his parents, his expectations of being a vampire hunter – Ultravox’s not just a really good villain, he’s a great foil for some really good character development.
Vampire Rising was only a so-so book for me, but Voice of the Undead really steps it up a notch, I really like it, great writing and a lot of undead staking fun. Aug 22, E. Alex continues his adventure in with the Polidorium in this action packed sequel to the Vampires Rising.
The way Jason Henderson uses literature to weave a story was fun and interesting. You love this kid, Alex, right from the start. He’s a regular kid with contacts.
Then he starts on this adventure and you are brought along to see all of it. It’s a great read and I’d love to see a fourth book! I’ve already read the series twice. Jun 30, Kevin rated it really liked it.
This second book was much better than the first in my opinion. The plot was more involved and the balance between action and character development voife much better. As a YA adventure novel the plot is not all that complex and the characters are not particular deep but the story develops nicely and the tension builds with some nice side stories. Looks like this is turning into a nice series for those looking for action adventure with a vampire twist.
May 16, Helssing rated it it was amazing.
Alex Van Helsing is amazingly written. It’s history about his ancestors being the worldwide known vampire hunters. While also Alex just umdead to have a normal life, ale while being stuck in a war that has been going on for centuries is really making that difficult. The conflicts he goes through is just simply amazing.
Not only because of the plot twists he goes through but because in some cases the reader can actually relate to him. Just how each challenge he must face their is always a plot tw Alex Van Helsing is voce written. Just how each challenge he must face their is always a plot helsingg at the end.
Therefore making his goal even harder to achieve which is to keep everyone safe. Now when I said that I can relate to Alex I really meant it. Kndead is amazing how the author made the character to be attached to reader.
Like the challenges and the struggle he goes through all of us at one point can relate to him. Back to the story though it was written perfectly how all the characters mix and match. How it just makes you think that you will know what is going to happen next.
But out of nowhere something unexpected happens that you never thought will happen. This is why I really loved this book and I really thank the author for this book. It really makes me feel like i’m the one he is talking about. Because how he explains Alex to undeadd a selfless person and strong mentally is beautiful. No spoilers though the ending of the second book is not simple to understand. The only way to explain it is that it will leave you in shock.
