It's tough for love-struck Raven to imagine what's keeping her nocturnal boyfriend from returning to Dullsville. So there's only one thing to do--find Alexander. Along the way, Raven can't resist the spot where she feels most at home, the Coffin Club. But when she stumbles upon a secret door in the club, she descends into a dim catacomb--to a hidden hangout where the house ...more

I actually thought DANCE WITH A VAMPIRE, book four of the VAMPIRE KISSES series, was going to be the last one. So I was overjoyed to find out that the story of Raven and Alexander continues in THE COFFIN CLUB.

It is now summer vacation and Raven is missing Alexander. At the end of the last book, Alexander and his caretaker, Jameson, left Dullsville for Hipsterville to return the young Valentine to his family, leaving Raven all alone. Now that school is out,
This was probably the worst book I’ve read this year, which is a real disappointment because I’ve heard that it’s really popular with teen vampire fans and I was thinking of purchasing the series for our YA collection here at the library. The dialogue is stifling, the writing is filled with clichés, and the teen heroine Raven is just plain dumb. I know that teens are often impulsive, risk takers, but Raven puts the hardiest X-game athletes to shame with the hazards in which she becomes involved. ...more
Just a warning: this review begins somewhat harsh, but becomes nicer. I promise. The Vampire Kisses series happens to be a series that I have kept reading mostly because I keep receiving review copies. Otherwise, I would have stopped after the first novel. The impressions of the first novel stayed with me for quite awhile, and I believe for valid reasons.

My two main issues were Raven as a goth and Raven’s relationship with Alexander. As both of those are central to the books, it did cause quite
This installment of the Vampire Kisses series is a delight. It is much better than the last couple in the series. Granted, there are still problems with the novel, like Raven ALWAYS gets out of trouble too easily and she never gets caught by the adults in her life when she is doing something she isn’t supposed to. These issues don’t take away from the storyline thought.

It’s summertime in Dullsville and Raven is chomping at the bit to get out of school. The only thing putting a damper on her plan

The Coffin Club is the fifth installment in the Vampire Kisses series. While this book was good, I didn’t like it nearly as much as the first four books in the series. The Coffin Club felt like a filler book for the middle of the series. While we learned some important information, most of it seemed like things like the reader could have lived without knowing. The plot didn’t bring any new problems left unresolved for the next book. All of the problems were over with by the end of the book. A co ...more

School is out! Alexander took off leaving Raven at Dullsville. it's not what you think, he took off to bring his nemesis young brother back to him. But being Raven she had to see Alexander, so she set off to have a summer at her Aun Libby's place back in Hipsterville. Drawn to this Gothic bar named Coffin Club she decided to visit it once more. Two things: to see if Jagger is still in town and to belong. It was her dream club only she discovered something much more underground- or should I say u ...more

this book was one of my favorites from this series. which means a lot because all of the books in this series are amazing!! at first i got very mad because of the fact that i thought alexander was going to be gone the whole book, but when she went to that mansion and found alexander i was very super happy. alexander just keeps getting better and better to me every book. i love this book and i think that its just wonderful. romance is my weakness and this book is megga romantic.
Intrigued by Romance
I was totally held captive by this one! In this book, Raven must go to Hipsterville to search for her beloved Alexander. Alexander brought Valentine (Younger brother to Jagger) to Hipsterville so Valentine could go back to Romania with his family. Raven of course could not wait to see Alexander, so after the last day of school (before summer), she decided to visit her best Aunt Libby (Who lives in Hipsterville); what a coincidence? Raven goes to the Coffin Club (A goth hang out she likes...becau ...more

This one tottaly shocked me! For one the ending who knew that the guy was Alexander!? Not me! Oh wow i was really shocked! Oh and Thats the last book at my school for that saga! So sad!
I felt as if this wasn't the best compared to the other books in the series. I get that the Coffin Club is a big setting for the direction that the story is going in, but Raven is practically living there this entire book. I also don't like how the vampires can't tell the difference between a human and a vampire when Raven enters the Dungeon. The author does a terrible job at portraying Raven's conflict in wanting to be a vampire or not. Raven really wants to be a vampire, without a doubt, but j ...more
This was the best one so far in the series. Even though raven was stupid, this one was still the best.

I liked the plot better in this one. There was more action it seemed and it was just overall better. I did not see the twist coming at the end and I was so surprised. It was great

The characters stay essentially the same and some new characters come in that I like. Ok so maybe Raven is a little more stupid in this one but not enough to complain about.

Overall I really liked this book and I reall
I don't particularly like or dislike the Vampire Kisses series. It's fun, but there isn't much depth in the storyline. I would guess that it's written for younger audience (preteens). Nothing a 19 year old as myself would fully appreciate. I do keep reading it since it feels like a light novel you can read without thinking too much. It doesn't have a complex storyline, in short. It gives me a break from books with more the in depth story lines. That's why I keep them in storage for those days wh ...more

Its summer vacation. Raven visits her aunt in Hipsterville, where she finds herself going back to the Coffin Club (the place where Raven first met Jagger in book 2) while looking for Alexander and Jameson when she hasn't heard from him. There she finds a secret underground place called the Dungeon and Jagger. While there she finds herself being accepted into the vampiric world and questions about if being a vampire is what she really wants. The writing is pretty good and Aunt Libby is cool. Happ ...more
wow such a twist cant w8 to get the next one!!!:D
This was the last book I read of the Vampire Kisses series a few years back. I started re-reading the first 5 of the series again so I can remember what had taken place before I move on and actually finish the series. I still liked the book since I didn't remember everything from it. It was really great that Raven had met some vampires who accepted her as a mortal, instead of expecting her to change. I do hope Raven gets her wish to become a vampire but I also hope she would just value her morta ...more

...and book five of Ellen Schreiber's Vampire Kisses series is done. Two more to go, and three mangas (should I decide to read them). Sigh. Growing weary, but still craving candy.

The Coffin Club takes Alexander and Raven back to Hipsterville... back to the "cool" community introduced in book... Two? It was two. (Yay, my internal scan still works this late at night.) Once again Alexander left and, predictable, once again Raven has tracked him down and followed him. I know that she's the girlfrien
Not bad

This is the fifth book in the Vampire Kisses series. It starts off where the fourth one ended. It’s summer and Alexander has left to go and drop Valentine off and his brothers and hasn’t returned. She knows she should stay in Dullsville, but decides against it. She goes to hipsterville where he should be. When she gets there she goes to her favorite goth spot, The coffin club. There she finds a secret door to another world- the vampire world.

When she finds Alexander, he tells her to stay
I read the other four books in this... they're really not that great, but when there's vampires, I will read. =)

UPDATE: So, as stated before, these books really aren't that good. Before I discovered the wonders of Twilight or Vampire Academy (GOOD vampire books), I was content to read this series because I didn't know any better. Raven is a weak main character (by the way, did you know she was goth? Because if not, it will be mentioned every third page) and Alexander is a lame "dreamy vampire" b

(Review for Books 1-8)

I decided to review all eight of these books together, as I pretty much read them all back to back and I don't think I would be able to go back and review them all individually.

Firstly, this is a series that I had known about for a while, but wasn't really too sure what the books were about. Going from the titles it's obvious that they are about vampires, but apart from that I hadn't really looked into them too much. One day in December, bored I decided to give the first bo

Okay, this is one of those books where I'm only reading it because I can't not finish a series. Raven is on summer break and is excited to spend it with her vampire boyfriend. But he's been in Hippsterville for a while, trying to return the youngest Maxwell to his siblings. When Raven gets tired of waiting for him, she decides to go and stay with her aunt in hippsterville and surprise Alexander. While there, she gets pulled into the hidden side of the Coffin Club...the vampire side. Letting othe ...more
