Raven has always wanted to be a vampire. Dressed in black from head to toe this goth idolized Bella Lagossi (if you have asked ‘Who?’ then you should be ashamed). But growing up in Dullsville, America, there is no opportunity to join the night crawlers. That is until the abandoned mansion on the hill becomes occupied by beings only seen at night and dressed entirely in black. Oh and are from Romania (again, if this country has no meaning to you, there is something wrong with you).
As the rest of the town churns out rumours, Raven is excited to meet someone she can be her gothic self around.
To be honest, I loved this book when I first read it back in high school (many moons ago). Now that love has been reduced to an admire status. I liked it and it was funny but it wasn’t how I remembered.
This is cute. There are some really great jokes... but it is all superficial. I don’t understand how after two dates Raven could be in love or how adults could really believe that vampires exist and go on a crazy rampage. It doesn’t seem believable anymore.
Please read if you want to clean your pallet after a very serious book. But don’t expect anything below the surface.
