As if Jagger isn't enough cause for worry, Luna, his strikingly pale sister, has also surfaced and seems to have her

I thought the first book was okay since my library didnt have the second book I just went on to the third & I was very very disappointed. See, when I read the first book I was a high school freshman & now I'm a junior in college & this book just seemed so dreadfully disappointing.

First, the author keeps reminding you how "gothic" this girl is. The author basically described shopping at Hot Topic: black lipstick, Nightmare Before Christmas clock, etc. (Don't get me wrong! Nothing is

Raven dates a vampire, but she faces a major problem: she can't persuade the others that she has a boyfriend! ("you don't see us together, since we should come out of the house only after sunset"). Also, Alexander may be such a sweet and lovely boy, but all vampires are not like him; take Luna and Jagger for example, who threaten to transform other children.

Raven and Alex are trying to stop them in another adventure in Vampireville!

I barely made it through this one. I read a review that claimed that this one made it worth reading the last awful two books, but they were wrong. It's so boring. The whole thing is just innocent consumer products given dark, malicious names, the word 'gothic' over and over again, and the wussiest, weakest, worst vampires I've ever encountered in books. They can't do anything cool besides fly. They couldn't even tell she was human?? Wtf. NOT continuing this series.

I finally came to the conclusion these books are the (very) rated G version of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Complete with a mystery, odd ball girl with spunk who doesn’t fit in and a hunk of a beau.

In the third installment in the Vampire Kisses series, we have our cast of regulars plus the vampire twins from Romania, Jagger and Luna. Craziness ensues when the twins try to lure Trevor to the dark side (unbeknownst to Trevor) while Alexander and Raven do their best to foil their plans.

There were some unexpected things in Vampireville but of course Raven and Alexander are still going strong. I wonder when he'll just give in and turn her into a vampire.

Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It has a fairly original or uniquely well-developed plot.

A love triangle is ensuing here, Luna wants Alexander who wants Raven but Trevor is there and Luna's brother is pursuing Raven to destroy Alexander.

This book was terrible, and was it really even worth reading . The characters had no depth to them whatsoever, the first two were okay . This one was HORRIBLE !!!!!

I thought this was a great third book. It was a nice quick read. The characters are getting better and better. I like the plot of the story and I can not wait to read the next book in the series.

This wasn't quite as painful as some of the other ones, but still bad. I think the writing has come a long way. I am seeing Raven as less annoying and the Goth descriptions have calmed down.
Someone really needs to just turn her into a vampire already. I don't see how she could have fooled Luna or Jagger even for a minute about being a vampire.

I also really don't like this depiction of vampires: the garlic, sunlight, coffins, blood. It's all just very childish, but I'm guessing that was the goa

My mind is blown how a book so stupid can be so good.

You are? Me too. See if you think too much about the book it is REALLY STUPID SOUNDING

BUT, when you don't think to hard, the book appears REALLY INSANE GOOD! Soooo I try not to think to hard.

And then read this series. Right. Daphne's got it.

See but the thing is I LIKE THIS SERIES! I truly do. See I wasn't able to express this in my reviews of books 1 and 2 because I was tired/had things to do, but here. Read this list.

Alexander Sterling is back in "Dullsville," and Raven couldn't be happier about that. However, Jagger and his twin sister, Luna, are also hanging around, which is the reason why Raven has started carrying garlic in her purse. To make matters worse, now that Luna has been turned into a vampire, she's on the search for her true love, and she's convinced she's found him in Trevor.

Trevor may have been Raven's arch nemesis since kindergarten, but that doesn't mean that she wants him to fall victim t

In general, I like YA fiction, but there are a few things that bother me about this series. In the first two books, the main character Raven seems to scream/yell everything she says - she can't ever seem to speak in a normal tone of voice. I am glad that she actually seems to speak at normal volume in this book.

When E.S. started exploring the reality of being a vampire as compared to the romanticized version in Raven's head, I was really excited, however, that train seems to have left the stati

Alexander and Raven struggle to get rid of Vampire twins Jagger and Luna Maxwell before Luna makes Trevor Mitchell not only a vampire, but her eternally bonded.

Schreiber's writing and plotting continues to get stronger. Raven definitely sounds more mature than when we first met her and I'm happy that Raven is finally starting to realize how much she'll sacrifice should she become a vampire.

I must admit, though. Maybe it's because I finished rereading The Vampire Diaries now too long ago but I'm

The first one was funny. The second one complimented the first but the teeny bopperishness was starting to wear a little thin for me. I thought, maybe by book 3 something new and interesting will happen to her. She's been waiting for her whole like for this kind of dark excitement. I just can't read anymore due to the teenybopperishness of the character. I've never been a teenybopper so I just can't relate. No matter how "goth" the character tries to portray herself to be, it's just not working ...more

Book 3 was not as exciting as the first two books, but it was still a really good book.

I'm a little surprised these books don't get better ratings. I am really enjoying the series and like the authors writing style. These books are very PG and and probably geared more towards preteens and youthful readers, but even so, the stories are light, fun and easy to get into.

In this book, Raven and Alexander's story continues in a way I was not expecting. There are a couple of little hiccups they have t
Five star rating. I absolutely love this series and it does not wane in excitement, it increases and I can not get enough. I look forward to each book deliriously. I cant read fast enough.
I would like to have seen a bit more action in each book as opposed to one or two big action scenes but then again each scene only brings me closer to each character. I love them all, I love the Gothic descriptions of all things Vamp or goth. A birds eye and unique view into how a TEEN vamp might live if they

I didn't love this one as much as the first two, but it's still cute. I liked the addition of Luna as a character, she's adorable. But not a lot happened, and it was all so overly dramatic when nothing spectacular was happening. Luckily it's the third book so I'll enjoy it no matter what just because I'm already invested in the characters. But I don't know if I'm going to buy the fourth book when I already have so many other books I want to read instead.

I like this series because it's differnt from the Twilight series. Just to set the record straight i LOVE Twilight since the first book was published, but the whole fairy tale story thing is getting old. Alexander is back but of course there are people (or should i say vampires) out there ready to ruin Alexander and Raven's life. Vampire twins Jagger and Luna come for revenge. Wh y you may ask? well You'll just have to find out for yourself.

I love the thought behind the series but not the actual series personally I think this was the best book in the series. I found Alexander very, very attractive but I find nothing else in him. I think Raven is very stupid for staying with him I dont think they are a perfect couple. I like how she has found someone like her but thats really the only appeal with the couple. I think the book is a good read but I dont think it's a good read for anyone over the age of 14.
