Title: Dance With A Vampire
Author: Ellen Schreiber
Published: July 2007
Description: The most important night of the year is drawing near . . . but not without a little trouble from the Underworld
Dullsville's newest night-faring intruder may be only a tween, but Raven knows that Valentine Maxwell, the younger sibling of two nefarious vampires, is a full-size menace. Valentine becomes even more of a threat when he befriends her brother, Billy. Raven must try to shield Billy, even as the biggest excitement of the year approaches: attending prom with her immortal love, Alexander. And while Alexander is one kind of vampire—sweet—Raven soon learns Valentine is another.
Could Valentine somehow know Raven's private thoughts about turning into a vampire?
I Give This Book 4 Stars!
I am so glad this series is getting better. I had my doubts after the first two. I have figure out two of my issues with this series though. First, I think some of the books could be combined. They function all right by themselves, but they are to connected (not to mention short). Second, I have no problem with Raven being Goth. But, for some reason it seems so cliché. I kind of just ignore that, but I do not feel it really adds to the story. This story I think was more fun. I liked seeing Raven get excited about something that it is so "high school". Of course, she did it her own way! I also thought it was fun watching Raven and Alexander way over react to Valentine. I don't think he was all bad, more just really lost. I also love how it seems Billy and Raven are finally starting to form an actual relationship. I also liked how Raven finally admitted that maybe she was not quite ready to be a vampire. I think it made her character have more depth. It also put some substance into her and Alexander's relationship!
