Vampire Kisses: The Beginning by Ellen Schreiber

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 576 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen


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.

Review

This new edition of Vampire Kisses includes the three first books in the series: 1.Vampire Kisses, 2.Kissing Coffins and 3.Vampireville


First of all and to give you an idea of how much addictive this series is I’ll tell you I read the whole book in one day and when I finished my eyes kept asking for more adventures of that lovely gothic couple; Raven and Alexander.

What I loved the most about this series is the humor with which is written. There were times while reading I couldn’t help but to LOL. I especially enjoyed the conversations between Raven and Trevor (her nemesis); they two are a really funny pair.


Alexander is a perfect gentleman; he’s so sweet and shy but, at the same time, protective and aggressive when it comes to Raven’s security. He starts as a mysterious guy and bit by bit, as we get deeper in the story, we discover new things about him and about his life as a vampire.

Jagger and Trevor are the principal troublemakers of this story. Both attempt against Raven and Alexander, but while Trevor is the most popular boy, star of the football team who doesn’t have anything better to do than to make fun of Raven (on whom he has a crush), Jagger is a dangerous vampire who claims revenge.

But if I had to choose a character, that would definitely be Raven. She is the perfect stereotype of a Goth girl and while she is marked as an outcast she has the strength to confront anyone who gets in her way. All se needs is a bit of understanding and love.


Overall: With this series, Ellen has created a fantastic new Vampire world full of humor, gothic stuff and, of course, love.
