Vampire Kisses Book 07
4 out of 5
After Alexander’s parents finally leave for Romania, another person connected to his past comes to stay at the mansion. Sebastian, Alexander’s best friend, arrives at Alexander’s mansion with luggage since he will be staying there for a while. At first, Raven isn’t exactly thrilled at another intrusion in their romantic moments. However, when she starts to learn things about Alexander through him, she warms up to him. Then when Sebastian falls for a mortal in Dullsville, Raven starts to wonder if that girl will be the first to get bitten.
This book, for young adults, is actually quite. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. ;D I know I have said that for the past couple of books for this series, but it is still true even in the seventh book of the series. :D
Like the previous books, the plot becomes more exciting and develops the characters and events that will lead to what will happen with Alexander and Raven. It’s kind of like Twilight — since the main girl character (the mortal) is trying to get the vampire guy to change her into vampire, but he doesn’t want to. Another thing that is similar to Twilight is that Raven is pushing Alexander to make her into a vampire, just like how Bella pushed Edward to make her into a vampire. Though, those are pretty much the only things similar to Twilight. The rest of the Vampire Kisses series is original with the main lead character having spunk and courage, which most vampire books won’t give to their main girl characters.
The thing I like with the books now is that she introduces new characters to create a new air around the main characters. Reading about Sebastian and how he interacts with Alexander makes you wonder what else is the author hiding about Alexander. I hope the author will keep on introducing new characters from Alexander’s life, so that he doesn’t stay mysterious.
The ending of the seventh book was a little unexpected. Though, it was still good, in a way. The ending could have been more explained, but I guess the author is saving most of the “good” stuff for the next book. The eighth book is suppose to be the last one, but who knows if the publishers ask her to write more to the series. Though, I am kind of hoping the series won’t end with Raven becoming a vampire. I’m hoping that the author will do something unexpected and pair her up with Trevor, or, leaving Raven mortal for a vampire Alexander, or even, finding a way to make Alexander mortal. :)
Other than that my feelings have change only a little bit from when I read the first book in this series, but it is still pretty good. So, I’ll stop wasting your time and just say, “Go read the series.”
