Product Description

For goth-girl Raven, dating her dream boyfriend is complicated, especially because Alexander's secret means that they can see each other only at night. And now the pair must be extra wary in the dark with Alexander's archrival, Jagger, appearing around town. As if Jagger isn't enough cause for worry, Luna, his strikingly pale sister, has also surfaced and seems to have her sights set on Raven's longtime nemesis, Trevor. Together, Raven and Alexander must begin a terrifying search for Jagger and Luna's hideout to drive them away -- that is, if it's not already too late to save Dullsville from becoming Vampireville. In the latest installment of her popular Vampire Kisses books, Ellen Schreiber continues the startling story of two teen outsiders -- she from the mortal world and he from the Underworld -- who share a thrilling, extraordinary romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars vampire, goth, romance 22 Aug 2010
By Rebecca
Format:Hardcover
I finally came to the conclusion these books are the (very) rated G version of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Complete with a mystery, odd ball girl with spunk who doesn't fit in and a hunk of a beau.
In the third installment in the Vampire Kisses series, we have our cast of regulars plus the vampire twins from Romania, Jagger and Luna. Craziness ensues when the twins try to lure Trevor to the dark side (unbeknownst to Trevor) while Alexander and Raven do their best to foil their plans.
This book was full of cute, perfectly timed quips from Raven. As well as a protective, but not overly so, Alexander. Actually, I found it amusing that Alexander would say things like "wait here" and then before you know it Raven is by his side. Love a girl who thinks on her own. AND I still find it cool that Raven continually addresses and analyzes the issue of becoming part of the undead. She knows her thoughts were romanticized illusions and life as a vampire would not be as easy as she had thought.
I have a huge soft spot for Trevor and I think Raven secretly does too. I am probably the only one going to say this, but I think Raven should give him a shot. Seriously. There is tons of passion (and flirting) between those two that I have not seen between Raven and Alexander.
Becky and Matt really didn't add much to the story; I personally would like to see them with a bigger role in the action as well as more from Ruby and Jameson.
This is a great series for teen reluctant readers. They are short, easy and fast paced enough to keep you reading.
I give this book 3 STACKS (for being an awesome book for reluctant readers)
STACKGirl Stacy who would like to see waaaay more passionate kissing in the rest of the series

4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 11 Jan 2007
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
VAMPIREVILLE follows right on the heels of its predecessors, and it is strongly recommended that the previous books in the series, VAMPIRE KISSES and KISSING COFFINS, be read first, otherwise things will not make sense and you're sure to be confused and unable to fully enjoy the story.

Alexander Sterling is back in "Dullsville," and Raven couldn't be happier about that. However, Jagger and his twin sister, Luna, are also hanging around, which is the reason why Raven has started carrying garlic in her purse. To make matters worse, now that Luna has been turned into a vampire, she's on the search for her true love, and she's convinced she's found him in Trevor.

Trevor may have been Raven's arch nemesis since kindergarten, but that doesn't mean that she wants him to fall victim to Luna's charms. Not to mention her fangs. So Raven takes it upon herself to protect Trevor--after all, the last thing "Dullsville" needs is a vampire-Trevor!

Raven is also trying to deal with having a nocturnal boyfriend. She mourns the loss of Alexander's company during the day, just as she despises the school that prevents her from being able to keep the same hours as he does. The time they do have together is spent searching cemeteries and other spooky deserted areas for Jagger and Luna's hideout, determined to drive them away before they turn "Dullsville" into someplace infinitely less dull--"Vampireville."

VAMPIREVILLE is a fun continuation of the VAMPIRE KISSES series, and will definitely leave readers eagerly awaiting the fourth book, DANCE WITH A VAMPIRE. The writing and storyline doesn't quite live up to some of the other young adult books in this genre, but it is nevertheless an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

1.0 out of 5 stars A gothic Charlie's Angel 24 Mar 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The most boring part of any vampire-hunting expedition is probably the hunt for the vampires' coffins -- and that's the main focus of "Vampire Kisses 3: Vampireville." Aside from reminding us that her self-insert is GOTH GOTH GOTH every paragraph or so, Ellen Schreiber continues to spin up a plotless supernatural soap opera that never manages to grow a plot. Instead we've got vampiric catfights and Raven stalking her nemesis.

The vampire twins Luna and Jagger are still hanging around Dullsville, and apparently have dark and deadly designs for the much-despised Trevor. For some reason, Alexander and Raven have a problem with this and set out to stop them -- so when they aren't fawning on each other (and Alexander isn't wangsting about waaaaaaa he's a vampire), they're searching for evidence of Luna and Jagger's hiding places.

In the meantime, Raven is stalking Trevor to make sure he hasn't already been turned into a vampire, while getting jealous that he's enamored of the new goth chick in town. But finding the hiding places of the twins (in a pretty random location) is only the beginning of the conflict -- Raven soon becomes galpals with Luna, but there's still a devious plan in place to snag Trevor.

Ellen Schreiber's third novel left me with one major question: where's the plot? Thus far it seems to be primarily immature teen vampires and obnoxious human teens dating, smooching and whining about how The World Doesn't Understand Them. It's a bit like the worst teen dramas of the CW, but with more mall-goth trappings (Count Chocula as a "goth cereal"?! "Nightmare Before Christmas" alarm clocks?!) and immortal wangst.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough to keep me entertained. 31 Aug 2006
By Sarah Kaley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just finished reading this book about an hour ago. I've read the other two and thoroughly enjoyed the easy to read writing and soft plot of the story.

It's not the Bite thrilled, horror and blood dread book I read about vampires most of the time. Which is why I never bought the books, instead borrowed them from my friend. But I do believe that is what I love most about the books.

I do not mean to underestimate the story line. It pulled me in, like all great books and I found my self tapping my pen in irritation and anticipation for my classes to be over so I could return to the story.

It's a great read and wonderfully written. But it's not a book that one need to plan to read. It's one where you read simply to read out of your love for the dark world and for vampire lovers, no doubt.

So, all in all:

I loved the book(s). I will read them all again, more than once this year, just when I need to pass some time or want to dream about having my own Gothic adventure.

I love this book! It's so great. I'm 14, and when I read the first book, I was hooked. When I found out that there was a third one, I had to buy it. It was so worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Dark, & Addictive 26 Jun 2013
By Jill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
VampireVille is the third book in the Vampire Kisses series, and I found it to be more engaging than either of the first two.

Once the only goth in Dullsville, Raven Madison is soon finding that the city is earning a darker side. It started with the arrival of her knight in black metal armor, Alexander Sterling, who moved into the haunted, abandoned mansion in town. Then, it was the too skinny inked up boy named Jagger Maxwell, who thirsted for far more than just Raven's attention. And in this installment, Jagger's sister, Luna makes her way to the Dullsville scene. But she has an odd interest in one of the boys in town- Raven's own nemesis, Trevor. It's up to her and Alexander to figure out what Jagger and Luna are really planning, and they better do it quick; there are lives on the line.

Funny, dark, and addictive as always, Raven Madison continues to be a character that I simply adore. This novel didn't disappoint, and made me eager to start the next book almost immediately
3.0 out of 5 stars Reviews from Brizmus Blogs Books 10 Mar 2010
By A. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Who Should Read It? This book is for middle grade vampire lovers! Also, if you enjoyed the first two, you will like this one even more. If you were only so-so about the first two, I'd say still give this one a try!

What I Have to Say: This series is FINALLY starting to get to me! I enjoyed this book quite a bit more than I enjoyed the first two. In a way, I feel like Ellen Schreiber is finally starting to find her groove.

Raven is finally starting to act her age, and in the process, she's turned into a cool, understanding, likeable character - no longer the annoying brat I found her to be in the first two installments. There were still cliches, but they were immensely downplayed. I think the term "gothic mate" was used only twice (maybe more, but not much more) throughout the entire book. What a relief! In my head, this is a major improvement.

The story itself also finally took off. While I wouldn't go so far as to say it was action-packed, there was definitely some major good-guy/bad-guy action going on. The bad guys are evil, but understandably so, and through their interactions with Raven, Alexander, and Trevor, we really begin to feel the loneliness and solitude that comes from being an outcast, something I thought was missing in the first two books.

Thanks to the new-found action and the new characters introduced, I actually enjoyed reading this book the entire way through (not so for the first two). While I was once again glad that it was short, I was also shocked to never once find myself bored.

I wouldn't go os far as to say this book was excellent, as it still had its fair share of problems, but it definitely opened me up to the possiblity of reading the 4th book. It's good, and I think most middle grade readers will thoroughly enjoy it and finally begin to relate to Raven.
