Series: Vampire Kisses (book 1)
Number of Pages: 208
Publication Date: 2003
Synopsis: "In her small town, dubbed "Dullsville," sixteen-year-old Raven — a vampire-crazed goth-girl — is an outcast. But not for long... The intriguing and rumored-to-be haunted mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood vacant and boarded-up for years. That is, until its mysteriously strange new occupants move in. Who are these creepy people — especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town prattle actually ring 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."
I'd like to thank Dahlia for letting me borrow Vampire Kisses.
I found Vampire Kisses to be a delightfully light vampire read. Even though the main character was "A vampire crazed goth-girl".
I liked the character Raven a lot in the first half of the book, but somewhere in the middle she started to grate on my nerves a bit with her obsession on proving that Alexander and his family were vampires and then wanting to make it a known fact.
While I usually don't enjoy reading about the wrecking of a characters social life, I think Trevor got exactly what he deserved in the end of the book and I couldn't feel even the slightest bit sorry for him.
Favorite part(s) of the book might have been the second time that Raven broke into the mansion and her revenge against Trevor.
Vampire Kisses was definitely one of the better vampire books that I have read of late. The only thing I would have changed about the book would be that I would have added more action and less of Raven pining to become a vampire.
Other than that I would certainly re-read Vampire Kisses and look forward to reading the second book in the series
Vampire Kisses earns 4 out of 5 pineapples.
