From the Back Cover

Athena "Stormy" Sterling is coming to Dullsville, and Raven is both excited and panicked in anticipation of Alexander's little sister's visit. Alexander tells Raven that she and his sister have a lot in common, but can the mini-Raven be everything she hopes for? Alexander calls her Stormy for a reason.

Stormy's visit stirs up the perfect immortal whirlwind. Raven is forced to take a good look at what it would really mean to be a vampire in the Sterling family, aside from some of the things she already loves, like shunning the sun and sleeping in a coffin with Alexander. When Raven compares her life with Stormy's, she can see that it's not all starry skies and black roses. But Raven knows she's always wanted to be a vampire.

Alexander is as romantic and dreamy as ever, and though he keeps showing Raven how much he loves her, will she ultimately be able to convince him that it's the right thing to turn her?

This final chapter of Vampire Kisses' nocturnal romance will keep all mortal and immortal hearts racing.

Also appears on The Screaming Nitpicker.

In October 2007, when I was a mere lass of thirteen, I discovered the Vampire Kisses series and fell in love. Four and a half years later, in May 2012, Immortal Hearts brought the end of the series and I, ever the dutiful fan, blubbered like an infant when I finished reading it. The final book of the series was fluffy and brought the resolution all the fans have been waiting for, but it was also pretty badly planned and doesn't actually offer very much resolution at all.

Everything I've come love the series for and expect from each installment was here: failtastic clothing descriptions ("her tights were ripped in all the trendy and cool places" (p. 55) doesn't actually tell me very much about where her tights are ripped); ridiculous emphasis on the greatness of Goth fashion; Jagger (and nothing more needs to be said); Raven drooling over Alexander and being a brat over wanting to become a vampire--you know, the usual stuff. And we get a tweenage vampire with braces!

Heck, the writing was pretty repetitive too. More than it usually is, and it's not that great in the first place. Two paragraphs on pages 202 and 207 reiterated the same main point. See?

"The offer was attractive, and though I didn't want to become a vampire with Jagger, I was flattered that someone wanted to change me. I knew Alexander did, but Jagger was offering it to me only last night. It was something I couldn't shake. If Jagger wanted it, thought about it, and tried to make it happen, did that mean Alexander would too?" (p. 202)

""I need to know," I said again. Jagger's offer was flattering but not something I'd really consider since I loved Alexander.

Immortal Hearts brings us the conclusion of Raven and Alexander's story. With the arrival of Alexander's little sister, Stormy, Raven gets a better look at the life of a Sterling vampire. For Stormy, life as a vampire has been lonely and secluded. So Raven knows that being a vampire isn't all good, but she also knows that she wants to be with Alexander for eternity. The only things she questions is whether Alexander wants to change her and if their futures are going in the same place.

I have loved this series since book one, but as the series went along, I just became more and more frustrated. Raven's nagging about being turned and Alexander's reluctance and indecision just started to irritate me. It's sad to see the series end, but it's also a relief to have a solution.

What saved this book for me was Stormy. I absolutely loved her! She was just so adorable, I don't know how anyone could not like her. She loves her brother very much and that trait gave her a sweetness that none of the other female vampires have in this series. She's just a young girl who wants to hangout with her friends and not be kept in seclusion by herself. I would love to be Stormy's friend!

The series wouldn't be complete without one final attempt by Jagger and Luna to split Raven and Alexander up--although it wasn't as grand as all the other attempts. I also thought that the happily ever after, with everyone in attendance, was too happy. I mean, Jagger and Luna just tried to break them up, but now they are all smiles? But for a series as unbelievable, outrageous, and totally hilarious, it was the perfect way to end the series. Almost like how a play ends with the cast gathered together to celebrate. And then the curtain falls and it's THE END.

Format: Paperback
First off this is one of my favorite series. Sadly this is the last one of the series but it was one of the best. This book had scenes I couldn't see coming, now being the last book it made just harder because I want more! Anyway the beginning of the book Raven, Alexander, Becky and the rest of Raven's friends are at the crypt. Now Raven is tired of Luna on her boyfriend and other random guys. She gets the help of her friends Becky, Onyx and Scarlet the get Luna aside and set her up with Romeo. With that taken care of Raven is anxiously waiting for Stormy to arrive. She hopes that Alexander's sister is just what she expects. So before Stormy's arrival Raven decorates Stormy's room in hopes she'll like it. In little time Raven and Stormy hit it off, they act like they have been sisters for years. So right now everything is great, the girls hit it off, heck Stormy went to a dance with Billy!(they are the same age) Near the very end Raven and Alexander had a fight about becoming a vampire. When they look for him he is nowhere to be seen, but shortly Raven does find him and tell her its time. Raven will be a vampire the next night. Of course not everything goes smoothly. Trevor is there and faked being a vampire just so he could be with her instead of Alexander. Once Trevor is taken care of the ceremony begins. It is truly a beautiful scene to read and next thing you know, Raven is a vampire. After all this time her dream has come true, and better yet it's with the love of her life. This book get 5 stars.

Format: Hardcover
I have to give Ellen Schreiber credit -- not many authors can wussify vampires even more than Stephenie "Sparkly" Meyer.

But Ellen Schreiber has managed it, and "Vampire Kisses 9: Immortal hearts" just cements this. I'm not sure if it is the final instalment in her Vampire Kisses series, but after nine volumes of Hot Topic clothes, teen drama and Raven nagging at her boyfriend to make her a vampire, I'm ready for the pain to end. Two words: vampire braces.

I would love to summarize the plot, but there really isn't much of one. First, Raven decides (for purely selfish reasons) to find Luna a "soulmate." It takes about five minutes. Then Alexander's little sister Stormy comes to Dullsville for a visit, and since we can't have any drama lasting more than five minutes, she and Raven are instantly compatible.

But oh woe! Stormy is friends with Luna, her old babysitter (yes, vampire babysitter!), and she develops a crush on Raven's geeky little brother! Quelle horreur! But meanwhile, Raven is STILL whining about how she wants to be a vampire, but Alexander is inexplicably reluctant to turn her. And after Jagger gets pushy again, Alexander and Raven have a fight.

The thing that struck me about "Immortal Hearts" was that there was no suspense, no conflict. The problems that pop up are complete fluff and are solved immediately with no obstacles. Oh no, will Stormy hate the room Raven designed? Of course not. Oh no, Billy figured out what Stormy is! Oh wait, it doesn't lead to anything.

Schreiber tries to cover up the total lack of plot by constantly pelting us with Hot Topic mallgoth fashions, and Raven being stalked by various hot boys.
