Review – Kissing Coffins
  • Posted:
  • November 13, 2010

Like I said yesterday, the Vampire Kisses books by Ellen Schreiber are light… able to finish in two + hours kind of light. But in a good, Gothy, pulpy, YA kind of way. I’m still enjoying them, though they are very much candy books.

In Kissing Coffins Raven is heartbroken. She just found out that her Gothic Prince, Alexander, is actually a Vampire. Following the discovery he has disappeared and Raven progressed into an angsty riddled (more so than usual) teenager. She vows to find him. Tracking him down to a town her Aunt Libby lives in, Hipsterville, she encounters a new Vampire, Jagger, who is Alexander’s rival. Much of the book follows her search, the rest follows Jagger trying to exact revenge on Alexander for scorning Jagger’s twin sister, Luna.

…and lots of Gothy jokes ensue, and quick dialogue, and silly scenarios. Like I said, it’s pulp. But it’s very engaging pulp. Squee.

If it takes me three hours to read a book (and that’s guestimating high) than I can read the remaining five books in about fifteen hours… stretched out over a week likely. I’m still dubious if all seven will get read right now, but for the moment I am enjoying the ride.

4 out of 5 stars.
