2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Now that summer vacation is here, Raven has only one thing to do – find her vampire boyfriend, Alexander. It has been awhile since Alexander left in order to return Valentine to Jagger, and she is starting to worry. Now, with school out of the way, she can go to her Aunt Libby’s town and search for Alexander. However, she can’t resist going to the Coffin Club, but she goes, she finds the true Coffin Club instead. She becomes friends with some of the members, but is drawn to Phoenix. This time the danger of being changed into a vampire is even greater, and what’s worse, the fate of humans starts to look bleak, when Jagger starts planning to use the Coffin Club to run the mortals out of town.
Oh, there may be spoilers in this review for this book and the other books, so beware. :)
This time, there is actually a long time after the previous book, at least a week. I found it refreshing that the author actually let time go by more than just one day. The thing I didn’t find refreshing was the “Alexander runs away to Raven’s aunt’s town, and Raven goes there to find him.” That theme is getting a little overused in this series. Hopefully, it’s the last time she uses it, but who knows.
All the new characters, which turn into Raven’s new friends, are all very interesting and upbeat like her. It was interesting seeing more “good” vampires around Raven, instead of the Maxwell family. :) And the plot thickens, yet again, when Raven actually finds the Coffin Club where the vampires hang out. But, Jagger wants to use it to get rid of humanity, which is kind of a normal plot there. Evil vampire wants to expand the coven and kill humans.
Anyways, this book is a little bit more exciting also because of Phoenix. Phoenix’s personality is well, more yummy and manly than Alexander’s. I wish Alexander would show this type of personality more. But speaking of Alexander, there are more romantic scenes between Alexander and Raven than the previous book, which was really good. :D
Overall, this book is the best in the series. You get to see a side of someone you never really get to see, which I found refreshing. Also, it went back to a fun, simple, quick, and exciting read. ;)
