If middle school sucked for Vladimir Tod, high school is a real drain. Besides being a punch bag for bullies, he's still going nowhere fast with dream girl Meredith. Needless to say, practicing his vampire skills hasn't exactly been a priority for Vlad - until now. A monumental trip to Siberia with Uncle Otis, training alongside the most gifted vampires, is exactly what Vlad needs. And he'd better get it right, because the battle brewing back home with the vampire who's been stalking him ...could be Vlad's last.
