Review: Vampire Kisses:Book 2: Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber

Summary: Not far from Dullsville, someone's lurking in the dark. . . .

After meeting the handsome and shadowy Alexander Sterling, goth-girl Raven's dark world has a bright, new glow. But as in her favorite movie, Kissing Coffins, Raven knows that love always has its complications, especially when Alexander has a big secret to guard.

When Alexander suddenly disappears, Raven leaves Dullsville to begin a dangerous search to find him. Can she stay safe, no matter who—or what—she encounters on the way?

Review: Kissing Coffins picked up from where Vampire Kisses had left off: Raven finding out that Alexander is a vampire. Okay, so I gave this series another shot and I am happy to say that I am revived. Somewhat.

The plot was still very loose and hard to understand. Way to many sudden decisions made by the characters (Alexander's mainly) made it had to know what was going on in the book.

It was too ironic to find out that Alexander went to the same town where Raven's aunt lives and more so, it's spring break. Way, way, way to predictable. I would have rather preferred that her (Raven) parents forced her to go visit her aunt and then she'd find out that Alexander was there. I just found that annoying. I was shaking my head the whole time.

I also felt that Raven was even less the Raven she was in the first book. She was even more perky and happy going and I felt she had lost some of her independence. She was also not fighting with Trever more, something I was looking forward too.

Grade:Go to fullsize image I liked it.I don't think I could give it more than that.

Cover: B-, It looks to duplicated. I think it should have been made more original.

Overall: For middle school readers or vampire lovers. If you want a quick read, this is something to read.
