Review of The Coffin Club by Ellen Schreiber(on sale 6-24-08)
In "The Coffin Club", which is the 5th installment of the Vampire Kisses series, Raven finds herself in 2 familiar situations. Her vampire boyfriend, Alexander Sterling-has once again disappeared and she finds herself amist the vampire night club the Coffin Club. She soon discovers secrets about the club-which lead her whirlwind adventure.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I mean, I like the series-but ever since the 2nd book I felt the series has been somewhat dull. The Coffin Club, however, is the darkest and most entertaining story since the original Vampire Kisses. We are introduced to a few new characters all of which that are interesting.
And best of all, the ending is adorable. I was not satified with the ending of the last book"Dance with a Vampire"- it has a horrible cliffhanger and really left you not wanting more, but going "Wait, What?" The Coffin Club however, ends on a positive note and, while it is somewhat of a cliffhanger, it leave s you satified and thirsting for more Vampire Kisses
All in all, A pleasant, quick teen vampire read. It gives a nice twist to your typical vampire cliche's
Miss Shreiber is working on Vampire Kisses 6:Royal Blood. Also, the 2nd installment of the Vampire Kisses:Bloodlines(a manga) is due out in late September
