The Coffin Club (Vampire Kisses #5) by Ellen Schreiber - Review
What's keeping Raven's vampire boyfriend, Alexander, from returning to Dullsville? She has to find Alexander to figure out what's going on. Along the way, Raven can't resist checking out the Coffin Club. But when she stumbles upon a secret door in the club, she descends into a dim catacomb--to a hidden hangout where the drink of choice is blood, the real Coffin Club. Exploring the club is too tempting for her to resist, even after coming face-to-face with Alexander's enemy.
A friend of mine let me borrow this book which had been recommended to her since she hadn't had the chance to read it yet, and we both like vampire stories. Neither of us have read any of the books in the Vampire Kisses series before starting with the fifth book in the series.
The Coffin Club is a short and funny read. Of course, since I don't know the rest of the series at all, I'm not sure if it's supposed to be quite as funny as I thought it was. The names were particularly amusing - i.e. Dullsville and Hipsterville are exactly how they sound. Although, I would point out that Raven's aunt is much more of a hippie than a hipster, there is a difference. As much fun as this could be, I felt lost even though there's a recap in the beginning. I think I've just missed too much by starting with the fifth book. I did get the impression that this is supposed to be The Southern Vampire Mysteries (aka The Sookie Stackhouse series) by Charlaine Harris for the tween set.
I read this from February 3 - 4, 2015 and my review is also on Goodreads.
