No you will not ever read a page where there is someone sucking someone’s blood in this series. This is more the general of the whole in between species romance than the the actual gory lifestyle of a vampire shown in series like Sookie Stackhouse and the Mercy series by Brashares. There is somewhat of an adventure within these pages. When it comes down to Raven, the main character, there is always some snooping. Think of her as the gothic version of Nancy Drew.
However, for this installment in the Vampire Kisses series, Raven is more worried about her vampire boyfriend’s family reunion after a surprise letter of their arrival comes in Alexander’s mailbox. Expectations and funny dinners start to happen and to top it all off Raven who is sixteen is now forced to face herself in what she really wants to do with her life.
This book isn’t as much of a ride for me, but rather a cliché goth fairytale romance with a moral to its continuation.
