I really enjoyed this book! I'm an adult, but I have to say that I really had fun reading this book! The stories are fast-paced and entertaining, with lots of action, perfect for kids. Bram is an orphan with a number of quirks that keep him from fitting in anywhere, so he gets bounced from foster family to foster family. One day he manages to escape from his latest horrible foster care facility and ends up pursued by a gang of werewolves. He's rescued and ends up at a special school for monsters, where he learns that he is actually a vampire! The academy teaches monsters how to deal with their special abilities so that they can get along in human society. Each student is assigned to a team, and Bram ends up in one and gets to know his teammates, including a ghost, a hulk-type boy, an invisible boy, a young yeti, and a swamp monster. They each have special abilities, but Bram is completely ignorant of what his abilities are and how he can use them. He also learns he is the only person who can face off and kill the evil Dracula, who is looking to take over all humans with his horde of Dark monsters. This book contains all 3 books in the series, as Bram struggles to learn to use his developing powers in time to fight Dracula and prevent him from taking over. What I especially liked is how each monster has different strengths and weaknesses, and how everyone on Bram's team needs to learn to work together to help Bram stop Dracula. I liked how nobody was perfect, and how they all made mistakes but never gave up. There are plenty of times when Bram doubts himself and worries he won't be able to handle things, but he never gives up. All of the monsters on Bram's team learn how to work together so their abilities can help them all achieve what needs to be done. That's why I think this book has a lot to offer. It's nice that you have all the books in the series in this one book, so you can read from start to finish. If you have children who like adventure stories and find monsters cool, then they will definitely enjoy reading this book!
My 11 yr old grandson was engaged from the first chapter and always wanted to read beyond his 'required free reading time' that the school sets. Lots of laughs, really impressed with how much fun these were. Will absolutely read more by this author- he's won this grandsons heart and mine.
I love this book! I didn’t want it to end. I hope there will be more parts added to it. The book drew me in and I felt I was part of it. I really really enjoyed reading this book and it kept me spellbound waiting to see what would happen next just like the Epic Zero books that the author has written. Can’t wait for the authors next adventure story and will be anxiously waiting for it. Thanks for the great read!
A fun and interesting story, though there is a certain over reliance on obvious references for characters names, but that's fine as a lot of them would fly over a younger reader's head. I'm definitely not the target audience, but I really enjoyed it regardless.
