Following Leo, a vampire with a highly unusual family and a lot of challenges thrown her way, this exciting, brilliantly illustrated vampiric debut is jam-packed with devious fun and gripping twists.
Straighten your cape and sharpen your claws . . . being a vampire is harder than it looks! The deliciously funny debut from Alex Foulkes, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.
There are highs and lows to being a vampire. On one claw, you get cool powers like beastly strength and hypnotism and the ability to Grimwalk. On the other claw, however, vampires are bound by the Vampiric Laws: rules to protect the balance between the worlds of the Living and the Undead. And unfortunately, 11-year-old Leo has just forgotten rule number one . . . The Rules for Vampires don't tell you what to do when you make a ghostly enemy, or accidentally restart an ancient war. But Leo and her very unusual family are more than up to the job.
A monstrously funny and devilishly dark new adventure from debut talent Alex Foulkes, illustrated throughout by the award-winning Sara Ogilvie, Rules for Vampires is the series that fans of Lemony Snicket and Skulduggery Pleasant will devour for breakfast.
