I picked Vampires Kisses: Blood Relatives, Volume 1 up after reading the series for about two years. I've read up two the 6th book, but haven't had time to get the 7th as of yet. Now I've read manga before so the drawing and speak bubbles didn't throw me off one bit. I've got to say that I was surprised at how good the art in this book was. I wasn't expecting much of anything from this book, but I was very pleased with it. I thought that it was well written and the drawing was very, very good. I can't wait to read the next volume in the Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives manga series!
