Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kevin Beach
The author concludes her series about the undead with this ninth installment about goth teen and still-mortal Raven pursuing her "dreamy" vampiric boyfriend, Alexander. In this volume she comes ever closer in her ongoing efforts to get Alexander to turn her—to make her a vampire and become his eternal mate. In her way stands a plethora of mortals and vampires who conspire to have her or her boyfriend. The crux of this book centers around the arrival of Alexander's sister, another vampire who becomes Raven's best friend while setting her sights on Raven's nerdy brother. The remainder of the book follows the female characters as they shop, hang out in the school hallways, or attend the goth nightclub where the real vampires hang out. The dialogue vacillates between bitchy and gossipy as the characters connive, plot, and pout. The novel is promoted as a title for reluctant readers, probably female. Do not look for high-quality literature here; there is very little character development or imagination. The town's name is Dullsville. Nocturnal romances are still quite popular, though, and it is a good thing to encourage reluctant readers. The author is also known for another series that features werewolves. This is recommended for stockers of the series; otherwise, it is not an essential purchase. Reviewer: Kevin Beach

    I am sad that this is the final novel in the Vampire Kisses seri

    I am sad that this is the final novel in the Vampire Kisses series. I picked up the first one on a whim while I was browsing Barnes and Noble. I have always felt a kinship to Raven and have been called macabre myself more times than I can count. I loved the fact that she was an odd duck in the center of a conformist town and refused to change for anyone.
    I would label the series as lower young adult, maybe even middle grade. The writing isn’t very mature and the vocabulary is geared towards a younger audience. There are abundant clichés that are used to describe the vampires: the sexy broody one, the sexy-but-evil one, the Goth one, the pixy-like one etc…

    The entire series spans one year’s time in Dullsville. Immortal Hearts begins just before Halloween and everyone is excited about the Haunted House that Jagger has organized for The Crypt. Alexander’s younger sister Stormy is visiting from Romania and Raven wants to make a good impression. I like Stormy, she acts just like a tween and has the mood swings and braces to boot. Actually, she reminds me a lot of my 12 year old cousin. And, gasp, she has a crush on Raven’s younger brother Billy. Stormy even goes as far as choosing a Princess Leia costume to go trick-or-treating in and coincidentally Billy dresses as Luke Skywalker. Yup, really. That aside, Billy is a good kid and Raven finally starts to fully realize what a cool little brother she has.

    The focus of Immortal Hearts is, and what has always been in the series, Raven’s dream of being turned into a Vampire. Although in this book now it is no longer good enough to just be a vampire, she wants to be turned by Alexander. The pressure and manipulation tactics she uses to try and sway him were a little much, especially considering that by turning her and performing the Covenant Ceremony he is essentially marrying her. And unlike other (sparkly) vampires we know, Alexander has not been 17 for a hundred years; he really is just a teenager.

    The only real conflict is the semi-redundant storyline of Jagger and Luna’s evil plots. This time, their big plan was to get Raven to agree to be turned by Jagger. We get it, they are bad. The only other thing that could have been played up was that Billy was finally beginning to figure out why the Sterlings were different. This could have turned the plot in the story, but it just fizzled. I think I will miss Trevor the most, though. He is the epitome of the boy you love to hate, but you can’t help but feel sorry for him. Unlike Jagger, he really had feelings for Raven.

    While I will not give away the ending, I will say that it could have just been more. Everything seemed to be wrapped up in three pages. Nothing is explained in any great detail and it was really frustrating to read and know that this is it, the end, no more books. I realize I just spent the whole time griping about the book, but I really do love the Vampire Kisses series; I even had tears in my eyes at the end. They are one of my guilty pleasure reads and will probably read them over and over.
    Farewell Vampire Kisses, you will be missed!

    I've always enjoyed this serious from when I was a preteen to no

    I've always enjoyed this serious from when I was a preteen to now I am about to go to college, but the series turned from a cute series with a good plot, memorable characters and good dialogue to the writer pleasing herself instead of writing a good story. I've done it when I write, then I have to backtrack, because I need to decide if it is essential to the plot, or if I wrote it just to please me.
    This entire book appears to be written to please herself.
    And she missed many great oppertunities to make it a good story, and instead of putting her with Jagger to run the club like she seemed born to do, or end up with Trevor who was her long-time nemesis and obviously could have made a great story, she gives Trevor the cold shoulder, and makes Jagger "friendly", which I don't like.
    So Raven is, once boringly again, with Alexander, who started as a very great, handsome character at first, and turned into a boring sponge with the same lines and wants book after book. I really wish she would have changed the story to make it memorble, but time and time again its the same old story.
    This is a good series, I will always remember it, but it finished up lazily and predictable.

    SPOILER ALERT!!!! IF YOU DON'T WANT THE ENDING SPOILED DON'T READ THIS REVIEW!!!! Yes! Raven does get turned, by Alexander of course, in a very sweet, beautiful covenant ceremony. I do admit I didn't like it, not because it was written bad or anything, but because Elken Schreiber left the ending at a type of cliffhanger! Most everything in the series was wrapped up and resolved but the changing of Raven left another mystery. I mean it literally ended, if I'm not mistaken because it's been awhile since I've read the series(I'm currently rereading it if you were wondering), after Alexander bit Raven and she looked around at the cemetary and everyone gathered around then looked back at Alexander and kissed him or something and then that was the end of the series. It so left me, and other people I'm sure, hungering and thirsting for more. Like what happens now that Raven is a vampire and how does her family react? And more importantly, how do Alexander's parents react to him changing Raven? Do they support it? And how does Raven adjust to her new vampire life? Does she ever miss her human life, does she miss seeing the sun? So many things are left unsaid. But maybe that was Ellen's intention. Maybe she wanted to leave the future of Raven and Alexander to her reader's imaginations. Well, no matter what her intentions were, I still want her to do a follow up story or something to give us at least a taste of what happened to Raven and Alexander! I'll leave you to decide though. Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again!

    I have been reading this series since I was in the 6th grade, I'm now in the 11th. The series turned from a cute series with a good plot, memorable characters and good dialogue, to something truly amazing.
    This last one left me breathless. I'm happy for Raven and Alexander. Me and Raven are so a like in these books. I wish I could date a vampire. I'm an outcasts in school but we also just love to have fun and party, although i do envy how she has Alexander Have. An "immortal love" for one another.
