I actually thought DANCE WITH A VAMPIRE, book four of the VAMPIRE KISSES series, was going to be the last one. So I was overjoyed to find out that the story of Raven and Alexander continues in THE COFFIN CLUB.

It is now summer vacation and Raven is missing Alexander. At the end of the last book, Alexander and his caretaker, Jameson, left Dullsville for Hipsterville to return the young Valentine to his family, leaving Raven all alone. Now that school is out, Raven has decided to visit her cool Aunt Libby in Hipsterville. From her aunt, she learns that the creepy mansion in town is being rented. Immediately, Raven investigates and finds her beloved and Jameson camped out in the place.

After a sweet reconciliation, Alexander rushes her out of the place to go on another mission. Raven is left wandering the town waiting for her aunt to finish up one of her classes. She ventures back to The Coffin Club (the infamous place where she first encountered the evil Jagger, Valentine's older brother) and stumbles upon the Dungeon. The Dungeon is the coolest place below the main club. It is also members only. It takes Raven a while to figure out that the "members only" part means vampires. REAL vampires. And there she meets the hypnotic Phoenix. Phoenix may just have some secrets of his own. And Raven stumbles upon Jagger yet again.

As the story develops, Raven gets caught up in the world of vampires and realizes that she does truly fit in with the vampire crowd. She meets two cool gals, Onyx and Sapphire, who befriend her. They accept her for who she is. And she finds out that most vampires just want to be who they are and lead as normal a life as possible.

There is trouble brewing at the Dungeon between Jagger and Phoenix, and the vampire world in Hipsterville may forever be changed. Caught between the mortal and immortal world, Raven again struggles with who she should be. Does she give everything up to be with Alexander for eternity, or should she remain mortal and see how things progress?

Ms. Schreiber keeps the reader coming back for more romance and adventure between Raven and Alexander. They are an unlikely romantic couple who enchants all. The story is light, with mostly action and little depth, but it is truly entertaining and fun. The story leaves the reader waiting for more once again.

I have been a long-time fan of the Vampire Kisses series, and there's not better words to describe how realistic and romantic it is.
I was particularly interested in the 5th book in the series; there was suspense on every page. I couldn't turn them fast enough to see what happens next! Raven's adventures are absolutely addicting!

I'd be the first to admit that I have a soft spot for this series: the characterization can be a little silly, but it's endearingly silly. Raven might be a little ditzy and clueless about what vampires are really like, but fortunately, the vampires in her world aren't *too* dangerous. Though, as she finds out when she follows Alexander, her vampire sweetheart, to "Hipsterville", she ventures deeper into the secret recesses of the town's Goth club, she finds that there's more going on among Alexander's kindred than she first assumed...

I'm a little dismayed that the self-awareness and self-questioning that Raven had started to display at the end of Book 4 didn't carry over into this volume, but since our girl is discovering more about Alexander's world and how it works, there probably wasn't much time for introspection.

School is out for the summer and Raven is missing Alexander more than ever. She goes to call her Aunt Libbey in "Hipsterville" and asks to visit. Aunt Libbey now works in real estate and recently rented a manor to a creepy old gentleman. Raven recognizes that description and tells Alexander. Raven wants to leave for "Dullsville" with Alexander. So since he can't go yet. She goes on a mission to the Coffin Club. The Coffin Club now has an underground club for real vampires. Raven gets in and makes friends with two real vampire girls, Scarlett and Onyx. Could Raven have taken on more than she could handle? I give this book 4 stars.

VAMPIRE KISSES 5: THE COFFIN CLUB
ELLEN SCHREIBER
Paranormal YA

Rating: 4 Enchantments

Ms. Schreiber pens a great addition to the `Vampire Kisses' series with her latest installment, VAMPIRE KISSES 5: THE COFFIN CLUB. This time around, Raven is set to enjoy her summer, except for the fact she misses Alexander, her vampire boyfriend. Going to visit her Aunt Libby in Hipsterville, she decides to check and see if she can find Alexander and maybe have a chance to hang out together at her favorite place of all, The Coffin Club. But when she tracks down Alexander and his mysterious caretaker, Jameson, in the dilapidated old mansion, things don't go quite the way she was hoping for. Sure, he's happy to see her, but there's still a mystery she can't quite put her finger on--like why he hasn't returned to Dullsville. Deciding to investigate, Raven soon finds herself amongst a darker side of the Coffin Club, `the Dungeon', and fighting an unusual interest in Phoenix, a mysterious vampire.

My only fault with the book is it seemed a little slow in some parts, and I would have liked to have seen more of Alexander but I loved the scenes where Raven snuck down to `the Dungeon' and hung out with her new friends. However, Raven is just as an enjoyable character as she was in the earlier books in the series. I really liked her Aunt Libby and Raven's new friends, Onyx and Scarlet. I have to say I loved the `Coffin Club' itself. Such a great setting and the `hidden' side to it as well was great and the idea of the vampires using crop circles to communicate was really unique. Ending with a completely unexpected twist, fans of VAMPIRE KISSES will no doubt enjoy the fifth book of this popular series.

When Ms. Schreiber isn't writing about the love affair between vampire obsessed, Goth girl Raven and the mysterious dark-eyed hottie, Alexander Sterling, she enjoys working on her other novels, shopping for Hello Kitty items, and attempting to gain control of the remote from her boyfriend.

The fifth book in Ellen Schreiber's Vampire Kisses series finds Raven looking at a boring summer, beginning in Dullsville with no Alexander. She doesn't even know where he is and can't stand the thought of spending the next few months in limbo like that. The last thing she knew, Alexander was trying to return vampire Valentine to his dark siblings, Luna and Jagger, who were last seen at the Coffin Club in Hipsterville. Luckily, Raven has an Aunt Libby who lives there.

Soon she is on the bus to Hipsterville, ready to search for her beloved and spend her time in the land where Goth is chic. The Coffin Club is practically Raven's favorite place on earth, with its dark edgy décor and drinks. Everyone there dresses like her and listens to the same music, unlike in Dullsville, where she stands out no matter what she does.

When she arrives in Hipsterville ready for adventures, she finds out that strange crop circles have been appearing in the town. Could that be a signal for vampires? Does this mean Alexander is near?

Raven learns that a spooky decaying mansion has been rented and knows that Alexander and his trusty Jameson are there. Sure enough, she goes there at dusk, just in time for Alexander to wake up and for them to be together. He is happy to see her but seems to be hiding something. He makes her promise not to go to the Coffin Club without him, but she is unable to resist.

She sneaks in and revels in the wicked atmosphere, until she finds another club in the basement. This one serves blood, and its clients don't ever see the sun. Raven pretends to be a vampire and learns from new friends in the basement club that Jagger is running it and many people don't like his rules.

Raven tries to piece together what is going on with Alexander and what is happening in Hipsterville. Luckily, Alexander takes her back to the Coffin Club one night, and even Aunt Libby wants to go there another night. The rumors swell about an uprising against Jagger, and the mysterious brooding purple-haired biker vampire Phoenix who stares at Raven seems to be leading the force against him. She is somehow drawn to the stranger while still spending as much time as possible with her true love. She can't keep herself from returning to the basement club to find out what is going to happen between Jagger and Phoenix. She knows the crop circles have something to do with it, too --- she just has to make sure no one finds out she is not really a vampire.

Lots of secrets and suspense will keep fans of the Vampire Kisses series happy in THE COFFIN CLUB. Raven's curiosity and quest to find out with whom she really belongs continue in a realistic way, even in a vampire tale.

This is the first book I have read in this series, and I feel that I need to go back and read the first 4 Vampire Kisses Novels, so that I can fully appreciate the books.
However upon reading this one, I am hooked to the series, I love the main character Raven, she is so very unique and loves it, she doesn't feel out of place she just is her. Something you don't see very often these days unless the are the "Queen" of the school. Raven, has a boyfriend Alexander (vampire from Romania) and a best friend named Becca who is nothing like Raven, yet still her best friend. Its truly a great story.

Ellen is a fabulous writer, everything flowed easily even as this book was broken into chapters, it moved from on chapter to the next without missing any information, it was as if you were watching a movie. With that said this is a book I could easily turned into a new movie, if it is please let me know.. otherwise I think Ellen should truly think about making this series into a movie, I would love it, as I am sure others would as well.

The Coffin Club is the fifth installment in the Vampire Kisses series. While this book was good, I didn't like it nearly as much as the first four books in the series. The Coffin Club felt like a filler book for the middle of the series. While we learned some important information, most of it seemed like things like the reader could have lived without knowing. The plot didn't bring any new problems left unresolved for the next book. All of the problems were over with by the end of the book. A couple of new characters were introduced, but it doesn't seem like they will be in any of the future books. My favorite new character is Onyx. Her fangs with a stud in them are bad ass. She also has a fun personality and is a great friend to Raven. Raven's aunt Libby is always a fun character. I enjoy the novels with her in it immensely. Even though this book was a little bit of a disappointment, I am excited to pick up the next book in the series, Royal Blood.

Raven Madison has done it again. She's gotten caught up in the creepy underworld of the vampire "club" culture.
The Coffin Club in Hipsterville is goth girl Raven's dream hang out... especially after she finds out, some of the darkly cladded pale clubsters are REAL vampires, just like her boyfriend Alexander. What's a vampire obsessed goth girl supposed to do in a club full of vampires? Why, blend in of course. As Raven dives deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the Coffin Club, she finds herself hiding things from Alexander. Could these secrets break them apart? Or is their love strong enough to live through immortality?

I absolutely LOVE this book series! I highly recommend it to anyone who needs to feed their inner goth.
Also check out the Vampire Kisses manga, Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives with art by REM.

At the end of the last book, Alexander and his caretaker left Dullsville for Hipsterville to return Valentine to his family. This leaves for a lonely Raven and makes Raven want to go see her Aunt. While she visits her Aunt, she learns that a mansion is being rented. Does this mean Alexander and the caretaker is there?

She ventures back to The Coffin Club and stumbles upon the Dungeon. It is also members only..What does this mean? And who is Phoenix?

As the story develops, Raven finally finds out where she truly belongs. She meets two girls which become her friends, Onyx and Sapphire. She learns more about vampires and how excepting they really are. Although, what is a good book without a little drama. This happens between Jagger and Phoenix.

Keep going Schreiber! I am loving this series.
