Ninth Grade Slays is the second book in the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series. Vlad Tod is just your average half-vampire, half-human teenager. He recently found out he has an awesome vampire uncle, who is trying to protect Vlad as much as possible. He also recently discovered that there is a magical world of vampires called Elysia, that is basically everywhere he goes. The nearby vampire Council's president and Vlad had a show-down at the end of the eighth grade and Vlad killed him. Or did he?
