Waiting on Wednesday: Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme started by Breaking the Spine. It is a feature that  spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Mmmm vamps. Nothing beats a Van Helsinh story.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising
Jason Henderson

Releases May 1, 2010

From Amazon:

Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson

The Van Helsing name reborn
Fourteen-year-old Alex has no idea that he's descended from the world's most famous vampire hunter, but that changes fast when he arrives at Glenarvon Academy and confronts two vampires in his first three days. Turns out Glenarvon isn't the only school near Lake Geneva. Hidden deep underground lies an ancient university for vampires called the Scholomance. And the deadly vampire clan lord known as Icemaker? You might say he's a visiting professor.

When two of Alex's friends are kidnapped by Icemaker, it's up to Alex to infiltrate the Scholomance and get them back—alive. Assisted by the Polidorium, a top-secret vampire-hunting organization with buried ties to the Van Helsings, Alex dodges zombies, bullets, and lots—and lots—of fangs on his way to thwarting Icemaker's plans and fulfilling his family destiny.

This sounds pretty cool, original considering all the "vampire school" novels out there. thanks for letting up know about it.

also, thanks for letting me know how to change the size of the video on my Waiting on a Wednesday page, I had no idea how to fix that, and you were very helpful. So thanks!
