Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
An atmosphere of tension rescues this imaginative but otherwise thin addition to the vampire-fiction craze. In this second installment of the Watchers series, 17 year-old Drew has won a fight to the death to become the girl most likely to succeed on the Isle of Night, off the coast of Scotland. There, Drew competes in a school that trains students to aid a clan of ancient vampires. Super-smart Drew has drawn the attention of a dangerous vampire, Master Alcántara, who chooses her for a secret mission. Before earning that chance, however, Drew must fend off jealous older students who are both intent on killing her and allowed to do so if they can. Characterizations tend toward the shallow, but Wolff manages to make her protagonists interesting nonetheless. She maintained tension by highlighting the constant danger that threatens Drew and by throwing in frequent action scenes. Worldbuilding is adequate, although more description would aid new readers. The plot, however, grows ever more preposterous. Drew's secret mission flies by far too quickly, as its main purpose appears to be setting up the next sequel. Nevertheless, what otherwise would be only a B-level effort comes across as a B+ due to the successful suspense and the intriguing vampire world. Entertaining but underdeveloped. (Paranormal suspense. 12 & up)

    Highly Recommended

    I rate this book 4.5. The writing is great. Lots of humor, snarky remarks by Acari Drew, and full of action. It's just the romance has gone to different direction (not what I have expected). Then, the mysterious background of Ronan is still a question mark? I will admit. I am being impatient on unraveling the mysteries. I hope the next installment will give the audience more answers to the unanswered questions, and reveal the history of the isle and its surrounding civilizations (i.e. a) Why is isle populated by the vampires now? b) Why is there a conflict amongst the vampires? c) Why is Hugo ruling the Isle of Night?) Overall, it is a good read.

    Reviewed by: Vikki S.

    Let me start this review off with a round of applause for author extraordinaire Veronica Wolff. Seriously people, I’m ready to bow down to this woman’s feet to pay tribute to her literary genus. Vampire’s Kiss is Veronica Wolff’s second book in the Watcher’s series. In book one “Isle of Night” we are introduced to Annelise Drew, a brilliant, sarcastic, charming teenage girl, who due to an unkind life and an abusive drunk of a father is lonely, self conscious and unsure of her self-worth. Through a series of events she is whisked off the mysterious and deadly Isle of Night where a clan of vampires makes its residence. Annelise’s only chance of survival is to become a watcher, which serves as liaison, intelligence officer and assassin for the vampires. We are also introduced to an amazing crew of character in Isle of Night, who are back for more in Vampire’s Kiss. Annelise is spectacular; she struggles so hard to mature while inevitably falling into bouts of childish emotional tantrums, which for the highly intelligent and less innocent Drew was amusing to read. Vampire’s Kiss takes Drew on an off-island covert mission to rescue a missing Master Vampire McCloud. She plays”Green Hornet” to Master Alcantara’s “Kato” and learns that there are more things to fear that goes bump in the night. I don’t want to giveaway any spoilers but what would be the point of a book titled “Vampire’s Kiss” if there isn’t say a kiss. This book was an awesome read; there is so much excitement and tension not to mention it was inarguably one of the best reads I’ve read in a while. I laughed, I cringed, I cried, and then cringed some more. Do yourself a solid and pick up the Watcher’s series, you’ll love it!
