3 out of 5


Valentine Maxwell, Jagger and Luna’s little brother, suddenly shows up in Dullsville. Now Raven and Alexander have to find out why Valentine has befriended her brother. Even though she has to save her brother, Raven has another problem — how to ask Alexander to the prom. However, when Valentine reads Raven’s real and innermost feelings about becoming a vampire, she finds out how much of a threat he really is. Now, what is she going to do if Alexander finds out?

Oh, there may be spoilers in this review for this book and the other books, so beware. :D

This book takes place only a couple of days after the previous book. I didn’t really like this book for a couple of reasons, but I still enjoyed it. I’ll tell you why in a little bit.

Anyways, the plot thickens when Valentine comes into town and reads Raven’s thoughts. It’s kind of suspenseful, but it kind of goes downhill after you get the gist of the plot. :( The characters, even the new ones, are still great. However, I still have a problem with Alexander, he is too gloomy as the male lead. I know they are both Goth, but he could be a little bit happier to be around Raven. :|

Also, the descriptions are still wonderful, but I’m having this one little problem. Must the author keep on using the words “Goth” and “black” and other things like that? By the fourth book, I think we all get that Raven and Alexander are Goth and like wearing black. I don’t think you need to describe the clothes, if they are always black. Just tell us when it’s not black. >.>”

I have one more compliant about this book. Why couldn’t the author pick a new thing for Alexander to do? Now, this is a spoiler. *SPOILER* Why did Alexander have to disappear (again) to find Jagger (again) in the same town (again). *END SPOILER* Maybe pick a new town instead of doing the same thing over again.

Overall, the book is simple and quick read, but not really fun anymore, since Alexander keeps on running off. :|
