Vampire Kisses – Ellen Schreiber

Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Form: Book
Series: Vampire Kisses

Raven lives in “Dullsville,” where nothing ever happens. Until now…

The mansion on top of Benson Hill has been empty and boarded up for years. But a new family has moved in. A family that never ventures out during the day. Who are these creepy people – especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town gossip actually be true? Are they vampires?

Raven, who secretly covets a vampire kiss, both at the risk of her own mortality and Alexander’s loving trust, is dying to uncover the truth.

Another vampire series to fill that vampire shaped hole that has made it’s way into my normal reading attire. While this is no Twilight by any stretch of the imagination, I felt this book was very cute and interesting. The story was typical mysterious family meets goth girl who is obsessed with black, things that are different, and vampires.

The characters in the story were a bit sub-par for my taste. At times I felt the things that Raven would say sounded more like a thirteen year old than a seventeen year old, as well as some of the behavior. What saved the book for me was the story itself. I enjoyed Raven and Alexander’s relationship, even though it took half the book or more for Alexander to even make an appearance.

Favorite Character: Alexander. He was a shy, compassionate guy who was not only hot stuff, but also seemed to be genuinely good. The strong silent type.
