So here's my first:
It’s another sucky year at Bathory High for Vladimir Tod. The evil vampire D’Ablo is hunting for the ritual that could steal Vlad’s powers. His best friend Henry doesn’t want to be his drudge anymore. And as if all that weren’t enough, it’s getting harder for Vlad to resist feeding on the people around him. When months go by with no word from Uncle Otis and D’Ablo shows up demanding Vlad’s father’s journal, Vlad realizes that having a normal high school year is the least of his concerns. Vlad needs to act fast, and even his status as the Pravus won’t save him this time . . .
First of all, this is the third book in the series. I chose to post this one because 1. I liked it better and 2. It was the only one I could find that I was sure was the official trailer.
So, I have to admit that I'm not all that into vampires anymore, but a book about a teen named Vladimir instantly piques my interest. I just have to wonder how anyone could NOT know he's a vampire with a name like that. Also, I think the trailer was done well. It does a good job of letting us know the plot while also making it exciting enough to interest potential readers. I think this can be hard with book trailers. You certainly don't want a trailer to come off as nothing more than a query letter or back-0f-the-book blurb, but you also don't want to make it too much like a movie trailer, which are often left a tad too mysterious in order to get you to the theater.
So what do you guys think? Would you look into this series based on this trailer?
