A new guy in town.

Rumors of vampires.

Dangerous first love.

This is where it all begins. . . .

The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years. But one day it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious, handsome inhabitant Alexander Sterling becomes the source of much talk around town. Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl who has always considered herself an outsider in “Dullsville,” is determined to uncover the truth surrounding the secretive Alexander. As she gets to know him, and their spark intensifies, Raven finds herself in some unanticipated situations. Can Alexander make her lifelong dream come true? But love always has its complications—especially when it can only be awakened at nightfall.

The first three books in Ellen Schreiber’s bestselling Vampire Kisses series capture the thrill of a most unusual romance.


Vampire Kisses: Raven is a unusual girl she dresses on the goth side, she isn’t shy and to top it all off she wishes to be a vampire. Raven has a huge obsession over vampires. She watches and day dreams that one day that will come true. I love Ravens personalty. She is sassy and isn’t scared to be herself.

When a family moves in the mansion. Rumors spread that they are vampires. Raven dreams start to come true. she gets close to the boy and starts to believe he is really a vampire. Never leaves the house, only leaves at night. Lives in the spooky attic. Bats fly around. Raven has to stop the town from hating him and find the truth.

The book is really funny for the most book. I couldn’t take the book serious enough. Right when you start to believe his not a vampire the ending fools you. I did like the book. It did feel like more a spoof of vampires at times.

Rating: 3 stars

More reviews under the line.

Kissing Coffins: Right before Alexander skips town, Raven finds out that he is a vampire. She heads to his house to find out he left. She find a note saying “His coming”. Ravens starts to wonder if she really wants to become a vampire or not. But one thing is for sure is that she love Alexander and she will find him. After searching for clues she finds one. Raven stays with her aunt and heads to the Coffin Club and meets a Mysterious boy who is also trying to find Alexander. She finds out he is a vampire and not one she likes very much.

The story still has it’s humor and you watch Alex and her relationship grow. and it’s more adventurous then the first one. I liked this one better. The plot grows more and the story becomes little more dark. The book gets on the cheesy side.

Rating: 3.5

Vampireville: Reading this one makes reading vampire Kisses worth it. There is more action going on and take a big step in serious. Raven doesn’t just want to be a vampire, she wants to become one to be Alexander. She pushes that towards Alex and lot in this one and you see him struggle with it. He was born a vampire and dreams to walk in the sun. The book takes it twist after the twins take over the town and his sister wants a human to bond with after Alex turned it down.

I really like were the plot is heading in this series. The humor is on the low side in vampireville. you can tell Raven has changed. she becomes more brave and starts taking things more series. you watch her and her brother grow stronger.

Rating: 4

Overall: I read all three books in just ONE day. The Book is easy to read and the words just flow. I loved the humor overall in this book. It has it cheesy parts but it was an enjoyable cheesy. The book did go on the more classic vampires like : Coffins, bats, and capes. Garlic is deadly and of course can;t go in the sun light. i would have of wanted more a plot twist to the vampires. The book does remind me of Twilight in some ways. Raven isn’t like Bella tho. Bella mostly just stayed away from the action where Raven is always in the middle of it. The book is is more towards preteens then YA. but i did overall enjoyed the books. I can’t say i loved it but i did like it. I recommend it for people who want to read more of a comedy paranormal.
