This was better than I thought it would be. It actually touched on the darker elements of being a vampire--well, a half-vampire, anyways. But it still felt like the first couple chapters were about his vampire life, the majority of the middle was about him and his normal high-school problems, and then a couple chapters from the end his vampire life just suddenly picked up again. It might have made a little more sense if Vlad had spent more than a paragraph thinking about things that should actually worry him--why is Meredith taking up more time in his brain than some vampire nearly stabbing him to death? And how did Vlad not connect the fact that he was having nightmares about a vampire with a blade with the fact that a vampire came after him with one?
Brewer also does a lot of what I have a problem with in my own writing, which is showing and not telling. I found myself crossing off so many lines of writing in my head as I was reading, particularly surrounding her dialogue. The whole point of the dialogue is to emphasize the character's feelings; if you do the dialogue right you shouldn't have to take two sentences to explain why they said it.
