I'm not sure how I feel about this just seems a little immature for me. The entire series seems more like one continuous fanfiction story then actual books. There's a definite beginning, middle, and end. There aren't many twists and turn in the story; there's one problem and it gets solved. That's basically the entire book.
One big thing that annoys me is how Alexander and Raven are so in love, but then there are random parts when she's attracted to Trevor! If she's soooo in love I wo

Reading Vampire Kisses (1-6) is like watching your favorite T.V. show. Each book is similar to a weekly episode. In this episode, Royal Blood, Raven and Alexander have been blissfully enjoying their summer together without the hassle of school and a difference in hours they can spend together. Just as the summer ends, Alexander receives a note indicating that his parents are returning to town. While Raven is excited, Alexander is hesitant of their arrival. After they arrive they are spotted by m ...more
Ive never had a book cause me to actually dream about the characters and its story before, until now. Ha. Ellen Scheiber has written some powerful books here and they have stayed with me and literally affected my Psyche.

I loved this one, book 6. Raven gets to meet Alexanders parents, in the process a lot of things come crashing to a halt. What could the future possibly hold for a long life relationship between vampire and a mortal? One would live for eternity while one dies. This was the way wit

This one was quick paced and full of lovely characters new and old.

I really am starting to like Trevor a lot more, I have a new respect for him.

Alexander has also grown so much in this book, though, he is still an expert at dodging questions. ;)

Royal blood is the 6th book of vampire dairies and it seems the story is getting more interesting.
This has always been a light,fast and a good gothic book. I have never encountered a girl like Raven in any other books . she is kind,brave, and really a loving person. She is totally in love with Alexander.

This book deals with now her parents relationship with Alexander's parents. Dealt with her parents view. This relationship was taken to new level and few interesting things to keep you hooked ti

This was MUCH better than the previous books. I almost felt like I was reading a new series! I finally understand the Alexander and Raven relationship, but yet there were still things that irked me. (Minor spoilers?)

First off, what is with the whole "I am about to turn 18" junk from Alexander? Um, you're a VAMPIRE. What do you mean you're about to turn 18? Aren't you undead? How do you get any older?

And secondly, YOU'RE A VAMPIRE. Your parents tell you what to do still? REALLY?

The sixth book in the Vampire Kisses series is different then the first five. There are no teen vampires causing trouble for Alexander and Raven, instead there is only Alexander's cool Vampire Parent's. The plot is quick paced, and you have to love all the pop culture comments Ellen Schreiber places throughout her novels. I would countine to take this series over Twilight any day.

These were great books. No bad language, no sexual content. And great story lines. Sorry to see I have to wait for 2010 for the next book.

I thought this was a good story. I am surprisingly enjoying the Vampire Kisses series. In this story Raven meets Alexander's parents for the first time. They come over from Romania to visit Alexander. I think Raven is really growing as a character and is starting to believe in herself and how maybe she not so alone in the world as she thought. Can not wait to read the next book in the series.

When raven has waiting to meet Alexanders parents for a long time she seems to be one of the last ones to be introduced why is that? What else could Alexander be hiding from her?

This book series is amazing! I have really enjoyed reading all of the books up to Royal Blood book #6. Throughout the book of what I've read, there has been ups and downs between Raven and Alexander. But what really got me, was that Jagger and his crew are going to build a coffin club, called the Crypt... That brings nothing but bad news for raven because in Dullsville no one knows that vampires even exists. So raven has to stop them from bringing in bad vampires. I'm excited to read the rest an ...more

Raven has enjoyed a blissful summer with the love of her life, Alexander, and dreads returning to High School. Not only will she lose the freedom to spend her nights cuddled next to Alexander in his coffin, but she’ll also have to deal with preppy Trevor, the bane of her existence, everyday.

Things start to shake up around Dullsville when Alexander’s parents come to town for a visit. Raven notices Alexander doesn’t seem excited to have them back. In fact, he seems a little distant. Almost everyon

Having read all other five books in Ellen Schreiber's popular series, and still reading it must say a lot of how I think about the series. I love the Vampire Kisses series. All the books in the series are a quick, simple read and you don't have to ponder on and on afterwords. Raven is a very strong character who any female (whether your goth or not) can look up to. Ellen Schreiber's writing style keeps you reading the whole thing through. While reading any of the Vampire Kisses book, you'll feel ...more

Alexander's parents came! Mrs. Sterling and Mr. Constantine. They stayed for awhile. Raven finally met them. She was so nervous, she was having a hard time deciding what to wear! I wouldn't blame her though! =)) Meeting the parents.. whew! pressure. haha! Alexander's parents liked Raven. They had dinner at the mansion. Raven's parents invited Alexander's parents for dinner at their home. I could tell Raven was freaking! Didn't have much time to prepare. It went well in the end. A few days passed ...more

(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

Raven is spending her summer in bliss. She and her vampire boyfriend Alexander are alone in his mansion, cuddling in his coffin, spreading black rose petals aplenty. Love is in the air, and Raven can see no sun on her favorite cloudy horizon. But fall comes, and with it, Alexander's parents. While Raven longs to be part of the family permanently, the heads of this dark household may have other plans.
