Vampireville: YA Book Review

Summary: For goth-girl Raven, dating her dream boyfriend is complicated, especially because Alexander’s secret means that they can see each other only at night. And now the pair must be extra weary in the dark with Alexander’s archrival, Jagger, appearing around town. As if Jagger isn’t enough cause for worry, Luna, his strikingly pale sister, has also surfaced and seems to have her sights set on Raven’s longtime nemesis, Trevor. Together, Raven and Alexander must begin a terrifying search for Jagger and Luna’s hideout to drive them away — that is, if it’s not already too late to save Dullsville from becoming Vampireville.

Raven was as funny as ever in this installment of Vampire Kisses. I just adored the desperate measures she went through to keep Luna away from Trevor. Some of them were just downright hilarious! [She gave him “Garlic One” capsules and told him they were an aphrodisiac. The worst part is that he believed her. Haha!] And Alexander is such a sweetheart! He’s so innocent; it’s adorable. I’m also growing a big soft spot for his butler Jameson, who’s a riot. Getting off subject a little, I noticed that these books are the G-rated version of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. The plot isn’t the same or anything, but it seems to me that they are similar. There was also a lot more action in this book compared to the two previous ones. I also loved seeing Luna as who she truly is, which is actually not a bad person [well. . .vampire]. And I especially loved seeing Raven get to parade around as a vampire. It was too funny! Check this series out.
