Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Dotsy Harland
Schreiber takes her popular Vampire Kisses novels in another direction with this first installment in a new manga sequel to the Blood Relatives series. As usual, Raven and Alexander are trying to settle down in Dullsville and have a somewhat normal dating life. But that can be difficult between a goth teenage girl and a sweet, romantic vampire who feels conflicted about changing her. And now they discover that Claude, Alexander's vampire cousin, and his gang are still hanging around town. Raven and Alexander suspect that Claude is up to no good, and their suspicions are confirmed when he and his minions are given parts in a local production of Cinderella. At the auditions, Alexander is asked to design the set, and Raven is put in charge of costumes, both very time-consuming jobs that will unfortunately keep them apart. But at least spending lots of time working at the theater will enable them to keep an eye on Claude and his crew and discover what they are plotting. Illustrated in black and white with satisfactory detail and minimal text, this graphic novel will appeal to younger readers. The plot is rather erratic and not as rich as the story lines of Schreiber's full length novels. Sometimes it is difficult to tell the characters apart, including males and females, but a helpful "Meet the Characters" section with a picture of each is included in the beginning of the book. Schreiber has also added an enjoyable selection of manga art by her fans. Reviewer: Dotsy Harland

    Good

    Art seemed off at times. Not that it was terrible or anything. The whole Vampire Kisses series is cute, funny, cheesy and at times predictable. But that's what I like about it. You need books like that now and then. Love the dress near the end, and the fan art.

    I have all of the manga adaptations of Vampire Kisses and I love

    I have all of the manga adaptations of Vampire Kisses and I love them all. I always read during finals to calm down and have something to laugh at and enjoy. They are cute and funny and don't because these are manga rather than ordinary graphic novels, they are more condensed dialogue wise and focus more on the artistic aspects (something I find lovely)

    I loved the Blood Relatives trilogy but I believe I'll like the Graveyard Games continuations even more. This first volume was even more whimsical than the first 3 and getting lost within this little world of Dullsivlle has become something I thoroughly enjoy.
