Ellen Schreiber was an actress and a stand-up comedienne before becoming a writer. She is the author of the first two books about Celeste and Brandon, Once in a Full Moon and Magic of the Moonlight, as well as Teenage Mermaid, Comedy Girl, Vampire Kisses, Vampire Kisses 2: Kissing Coffins, Vampire Kisses 3: Vampireville, Vampire Kisses 4: Dance with a Vampire, Vampire Kisses 5: The Coffin Club, Vampire Kisses 6: Royal Blood, Vampire Kisses 7: Love Bites, Vampire Kisses 8: Cryptic Cravings, and Vampire Kisses 9: Immortal Hearts. She is also the author of the fully illustrated manga series about Raven and Alexander, Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives and Vampire Kisses: Graveyard Games.
Gr 7 Up-In this third book in the series, 16-year-old Goth girl Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, attempt to save Dullsville from an invasion of the undead. Jagger and Luna, evil teen vampire twins new in town, are trying to get their fangs into Trevor, soccer star and Raven's nemesis since kindergarten. Making things even more difficult for Raven is the fact that she and her boyfriend run on different schedules; she can only see him at night, due to his aversion to daylight. The book culminates with a party at the cemetery, during which Jagger and Luna hope to trap Trevor and make him one of their kind. The action begins where the second installment ended and no effort is made to bring readers up to speed, leaving those unfamiliar with the first two titles in the dark. Although the series is a fun, fast read for vampire fans, it pales in comparison to other titles currently available in the genre.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
