Alex Van Helsing by Jason Henderson


A descendant of legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, fourteen-year-old Alex is stuck at boarding school near Lake Geneva, Switzerland, when he finds himself drawn into a web of paranormal intrigue. It turns out that Lake Geneva is also home to a secret school for vampires called the Scholomance—and now to a dangerous vampire clan lord known only as Icemaker, who’s using the Scholomance for his own dangerous endgame. With the help of his friends and of special agent Sangster, it’s up to Alex to fulfill his family destiny and stop Icemaker’s frightening plans once and for all.

Alex Van Helsing was had a pretty slow start, which made me want to put it down. Luckily, it sped up and got better… much better. Alex Van Helsing moves pretty quickly throughout the book and it action packed. That being said, to me it felt a little over-done. Not because it’s a “Van Helsing” type book, but because of vampires. I love paranormal books, it’s not my YA genera of choice, but I love them. I normally don’t mind most Vampire books, but for some reason this one kind of bugged me. I don’t really know why, it is probably a perfectly good book. Another reason I didn’t like this, is that it vaguely reminded me of the TV show “Demons”. “Demons” is about a descendent of Van Helsing, and him learning to kill demons and such. I think you would like this book if you are looking for something fast paced and paranormal.

FTC- I got this from the publisher
