Manga Monday! #17 – Review of Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives by Ellen Schreiber

Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives, Vol. 1 (Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives #1)

by Ellen Schreiber, Rem (Illustrator)
Review: I know what some of you might be thinking, this does not look like real manga. Well it is and is not, it is a manga based off of a novel. Not just any novel but and young adult one.
After my mom got me this manga, I got in trouble at school for only reading manga ( it was the next day). Anyway the main reason why I got out of trouble was that I told them this manga had a book to it too, and that I was bringing it the next day. I was really hoping that the teachers would forget about punishing me but I still wanted to be safe, so after school I went to Barns & Noble with my Grandmother and we got the next three novels in the series.
Thank god, they were interesting or I would have had nothing to do during class. Anyway, the manga of Vampire Kisses and the novels are very good. They are also quick reads, that are fun and quotable.  The only down side to the manga is the fourth volume, which changes artist, and never really concludes what happens to everyone.
4 out of 5 stars.
1-4 volumes.
Romance. Manga. Goth. Vampire.
Published by TokyoPOP.
Summary: The absolute last thing goth-girl Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, need is another hitch in their nighttime-only romance—but dark trouble hovers on the horizon when Raven and Alexander discover four freshly dug graves filled with empty coffins. When a crew of sketchy vampires takes up residence in Dullsville’s lonely graveyard, Alexander finds this motley bunch led by his very own blood-sucking cousin, Claude Sterling. Shocking! Claude and his creepy crew can only spell out more problems for the pair, especially when Raven finds them in daylight in the very last place she could ever imagine. What could Claude and his invaders be doing—or searching for—in Dullsville?
