I don’t even know where to begin about how much I love this book. After reading the eighth book in the Vampire Kisses series and having heard that the ninth installment would be the last I was terrified. Mixed emotions had coursed through me; joy at finally finding out what Alexander and Raven’s futures would hold and heart wrench that something would go terribly wrong. Even though I had picked this book up from the bookstore just days after its release I was reluctant to read it, not knowing what to expect.
But today I finally mustered up the courage to sink my teeth into the conclusion to the Vampire Kisses series and finished it in one go, unable to put it down just like every other book in the series. Raven was as spunky as ever and I fell in love with Alexander all over again, he truly is any girl’s dream vampire. I loved it when Ellen Schreiber would introduce new characters into the series (Like Sebastian who I had instantly loved) and Stormy was no exception. Alexander’s little sister was wonderful and she really brought life to the story and showed another side of Alexander.
At the turn of every page I was kept on my toes dying to know if Alexander would finally give in and change Raven or not. Trevor, as menacing as he always is, remained Raven’s nemesis to the very end. This is one of my favorite books in the series now along with the first, second and fourth, though I love the entire series. Ellen Schreiber has easily become one of my favorite authors and she didn’t let me down with this last book. Thank you Ellen. The ending was perfect and warmed my heart and was a fitted conclusioin for Alexander and Raven. I loved how the audience was left off able to imagine for themselves what they would expect to happen afterwards.
But the adventures aren’t over, we can relive them over and over again by rereading the wonderful story of Vampire Kisses.
