    I honestly don't know how I feel about this book, much less how to rate it. I am emotionally attached to this series, so, of course, it was sad to see it end and there was a part of me that was somewhat pleased. But still, the book is bad. The writing is bad, the characterization is bad, the plot was bad, and...do I need to go on? Everything about this book is kind of bad.

The writing is bad, the characterization is bad, the plot was bad, and...do I need to go on? Everything about this book is kind of bad. Still, I want to slap myself right now for actually writing that. I feel like I am betraying my pre-teen former self by giving this book 3 stars and calling it bad. But I am sorry to say that during this conclusion, though it ultimately reached the desired outcome, the ride there wasn't fulfilling. I guess I owe it to this series to think about it a bit more, but I don't think the rating or my impressions are going to change. I think I am actually glad it's over. A childhood obsession can only take so many hits before the whole illusion shatters and we are forced to admit that there never was anything truly outstanding about it, so this series definitely needed an ending. -------------Edit 6/03/2012 If I were to be completely honest and objective, this book would barely make it to two stars. There's barely a plot in there, zero character development and, worst of all, it is really nothing but a forced, half-cooked ending to the series. But the truth is, I am not objective at all with this rating, so I'll try to be with the review. What bothered me the most about this one is just how misleading the summary in the jacket of the book was. Throughout the whole series, Raven's desire to be a vampire has pretty much been driving force of the story. Would Alexander turn her or not? When, where, why, how? As a fan of the series, I kept expecting for this to happen but I also wanted to see the emotional and psychological development of Raven before the possibility of it. The blurb pretty much states that meeting Alexander's little sister and seeing how being a teenage vampire affects how she grows up would make Raven wonder about what being a vampire would do to her life. That is a lie. Raven's resolve to be turned by Alexander never wavers or weakens. That would be admirable if it wasn't because Raven is just so immature, petty, childish and silly about it. Despite what she constantly says, I never once truly believed Raven wanted to turn into a vampire because of Alexander and because of what that would mean to their relationship. It was all about her and what she wanted and what she needs, and, while at first during the first installments it was charming, now it was just irritating and a demonstration on poor character development. Raven is still set on becoming a vampire, never wondering about the effect this will have in her life and emotional ties with family and friends, but don't worry, the author saved Raven and us from that by never actually having Raven care about it and going right in with the resolution we always knew these series would have. Mostly nothing is resolved with this finale. Schreiber didn't even try to tie loose strings or put an end to on going side plots like Raven's relationship with Trevor or how more and more people were becoming aware of the existence of vampires in Dullsville. She did try to put an end to the weird connecting between Trevor and Raven, but then it comes back up at the end with one of the most ridiculous scenes in Vampire Kisses history (and that's saying a lot). Schreiber's writing is as terrible as ever (Seriously? He worked as hard as a handsome handyman?) and this novel is nothing but a random string of silly and barely related events leading up to a lack-luster ending that barely ended anything at all. So, why the 3 stars then if I have nothing good to say about it? Well, I told you I wasn't been objective with this one. I've been loyal to this series for almost a decade and almost every book in the series got me through a lot of things during my angsty teenage years. If I were to honestly rate every book in this series, they'd probably all be 1 star, but back when I first read them, these books triggered a lot of changes in me and helped in my total submersion into the world of YA. I have a lot of love for this series, bad as they are, and I don't think I could give this ending anything lower than 3 stars even if I wanted (and I do). The thing is, it's really sad to see a part of what made you who you are today end. So, in conclusion, if you are not a loyal, hardcore fan of the series and read it with the totally subjective, rainbow-colored lens of undying love and devotion, the I suggest you stay away from it because chances are you are probably going to see all the flaws I just described and probably more. But if you, like me, see in this book the needed closure for your former teenage selves, then this will probably be a bittersweet goodbye you will begrudgingly enjoy.

A lot of times through the series I thought something was gonna happen that involved Trevor and Raven, I'm not exactly sure how to explain that something. But involved Alexander as well. But I do feel bad for Trevor. He's loved Raven for how long, since probably kindergarden, and he's tried to tell her, in his own way, for years. I just hope he'll find someone to make him happy :)

    If the phrase 'Disgrace to literature' ever meant anything, this book revolutionizes its definition. A tween fantasy, 'Immortal Hearts' follows a dull, clutchy, cliche female character who is hopelessly in love with a shadowy male interest who, to no one's surprise, happens to be a vampire. She pines for her love in the morning, afternoon, and evening, and then spends the night with him and his goons at the local nightclub, worrying that one of her polyamorous friends will steal him away.

All the while, of course, she dreams of the day that he'll bite her, thereby claiming her as an 'eternal love companion' or something completely ridiculous like that. At any rate, I finished the book, put it down hastily, and told myself never to point this book out on a library shelf and admit to reading it. On the bright side, as an aspiring author, this novel gives me hope. It lets me know that not only can books written in a primitive style and offer a boring plot be published, but can also be bestsellers. Therefore, should I have difficulty being published, I can merely offer my work to Ellen Schreiber's company and viola, it'd be a clear road.

What I didn't know going in, was how awesome Alexander's sister Stormy was going to be. The reason I'm giving this book 3 stars is because of Stormy. I loved her character and the way she didn't act like a 12 year old girl that she is. I loved how she had spunk and she really seemed to care for Raven once they connected. I even liked Stormy's relationship with Raven's little brother Billy who shocked and surprised me as well. So, because of Stormy and how she stood up for Raven with the Maxwell's, this gets a 3 star rating. Also, it's because the book actually made me cry which is always a plus when it comes to how I rate a book. Didn't much care for the ending. I don't really care for the fact that Raven is now a 17 year old vampire who is basically married for eternity to Alexander and will only see her best friend Becky when it suits her. I also didn't much care for the fact that she basically left her parents behind without so much as saying goodbye to them. It's not like things will ever be the same again. I'm really not sad to see this series end. It's been on my last nerve for a few books now. I'm glad that the author and publisher didn't try to force a 10th book on us. At this this series can be extremely churlish. Yes, I realize it was written for the 12 plus genre. At the same time, who can resist Alexander and Sebastian?

    I originally had no intention of finishing this series after the last book. But... My daughter read the first 8 books in 7 days and wanted to get the last book to finish out the series. After she read it and said she liked it (she also didn't have the same issues with book 8 that I had), I decided to do the same. The nice thing about these books is how quick and easy they are to read. And for the most part, they are clean stories -- very little swearing and very little mention of sex.

And maybe I'm just too old for this series now or maybe my reading tastes have grown-up since I've read so many other books in the past 2 years, but this book just felt way too young/childish for me to say I really liked it. I hate when I'm reading a book and constantly roll my eyes at the characters. Raven is such an immature 17-year-old, it's laughable. I, too, was 17 when I got engaged; 18 when I got married. Raven wasn't much younger than me, but she acts like a 12-year-old...or younger really. My daughter IS 12 and I think she acts more mature than Raven. I won't go into all the issues I had with this book (derived mainly from the seriously immature characters and the ridiculous things they get themselves into), but I will say it was a nice wrap-up to the series. The ending was cheesy-predictable, but satisfactory. If you have read the 8 predecessors to this book and survived, you might as well read it and finish the series too.

    To be honest, I mostly just read this book to finish the series. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure, and they're all so easy to read. But, oh dear lord, they are bad. At least the last few. So much swooning, talking for paragraphs about how "dreamy" (yes, the word "dreamy" is used often to describe Alexander) Raven's "love" is. I'm embarrassed to admit I sought out this book to read. I mean, I know this isn't quality literature, but I expected a bit more effort than what was in Immortal Hearts. It's To be honest, I mostly just read this book to finish the series.

If you're a fan of the series, the ending is probably what you wished for, but you'll probably be wanting another installment. If there ever is one, I know I won't be reading it.

    I can not believe this series ended. I am so happy with how it ended though. Immortal Hearts was nothing like I expected. Seriously Alexander just becomes sexier and sexier with every book. I love how Raven always stayed true to her character throughout the entire series, but still grows. I also love that she didn't change her mind in the end and just grew as a character with understanding. Raven is such a strong character. She has never wanted to be popular, just herself, and she always knew wh I can not believe this series ended. I am so happy with how it ended though. Immortal Hearts was nothing like I expected.

If I were a vampire I would want to be like her too. Favorite quote: "I have had just about enough of other of other guys trying to turn you, Raven. There is only one vampire who will," he said confidently. "The one who you were always meant for-me." So sexy!!!!!!!!

However, I really hated how rushed this book was, and I feel like whatever little character development we got of these characters (particularly Raven and Alexander) were just buried in the graveyard.

The following review covers the entire series: I enjoyed the characters and plot line threading through the series, however, the writing was often tedious and repetitive. While Raven's emotions were explored, and she grew in many ways, she somehow remained very simplistic. It is a young fantasy series and stands as a fun, easy read, but it could have been stronger and more tightly written and edited.

While Raven's emotions were explored, and she grew in many ways, she somehow remained very simplistic. It is a young fantasy series and stands as a fun, easy read, but it could have been stronger and more tightly written and edited. YA can offer more complexity of feelings, choices, growth, and consequences. Characters often made the same mistakes over and over, or the same assumptions over and over. The reader is, again and again, regularly "told" rather than "shown". Sometimes a paragraph explaining an event or conversation or notion is followed by another paragraph expressing the same thing in a slightly different way, with no evolution, as if it were edited without pulling the weaker writing selection. Whereas there are some sections of writing that jump to different places or times without any indicator of change. These could be helped with a transitional sentence or even a visual rest indicator between paragraphs (like three dots, or a swirly line). Toward the end of the final book, a part of me hoped that Raven would learn that she didn't want to turn. The only compelling reason for her to do so was that she had been born that way, and known all her life who she was. I appreciated the emphatic (repeated, repeated, repeated) lesson for readers to be true to themselves. Schreiber eloquently described Raven as a vampire in a mortal's body. However, whenever Raven made lists of reasons to be a vampire (as she often did), they usually looked fairly flimsy and overlapped, like, "being a part of the underworld" and sleeping with the other vampires in the Crypt, or, not going to school to learn subjects she didn't care about (wow, great lesson for young readers). She broaches the subject of having ambition for her life/eternity, but avoids truly exploring the consequences of her change, with regard to her birth family especially, as well as plans to fulfill her ambitions after she changes. It comes across as a very "thorough" exploration of surface issues. Though the author tries to introduce tension and urgency to the decision to change, it would have made more sense for her to wait until she were eighteen or older. People often don't give enough credit to teenagers, but, her argument that she was seventeen and old enough to make such life altering decisions because she was *almost* old enough to vote and join the army, etc... well, that's not very convincing. The other thread that felt poorly tied was the Trevor subplot. A part of me truly wanted to see them grow closer together. They may not have been right for one another, and yet, I almost wanted to see Alexander and Raven acknowledge their differences and part ways, allowing Raven and Trevor to Come together more. Their chemistry and banter lit up their scenes, and though he's mostly painted as a shallow jock, he's given streaks of thoughtfulness throughout the series that hint at depth. His character grows. Also, the simplistic classification of "goths" and "jocks" etc was tiresome across 9 books. I was also curious to read more about how one is born a vampire like the Sterlings, and why sometimes vampire families produce a mortal child. And, how is one a half-vampire, like Jameson the butler? If Raven weren't turned, could she carry a child of Alexander's that was half mortal? These topics are alluded to with regard to Alexander's grandmother, but not explored *nearly* as well as the depth of Raven's feelings for Alexander, or the lack of trustworthy virtues in the Maxwells, etc. And, what about Jameson and Ruby? Overall the series offered an enjoyable and imaginative read, if somewhat irritating and strangely cut short.

    3.5 stars. Oh man! I just realized how hard is to grow up and see your favorite characters be the same teen-immature-silly persons. Ok, not that I stopped loving YA, but while reading the last book in the Vampire Kisses series I just had a new “view” to Raven and her gang. Vampire Kisses was the first book about vampire that I read, I loved Raven and Alexander, I loved Trevor and I hated Becky, I was happy to read all 5 books (back then) one after the others. Then I waited and waited for the next 3.5 stars. Oh man! I just realized how hard is to grow up and see your favorite characters be the same teen-immature-silly persons.

Vampire Kisses was the first book about vampire that I read, I loved Raven and Alexander, I loved Trevor and I hated Becky, I was happy to read all 5 books (back then) one after the others. Then I waited and waited for the next ones. But today, after I finished reading Immortal hearts, the 9th book, I felt something I didn’t expected, after about 200 books read since I’m a reader, I feel bored! I even skipped some lines, I was reading without putting much attention. I’m not going to say that I didn’t enjoy some parts and felt a little nostalgic, because I did, of course! I was dying to know if Alexander will finally turn Raven into a vampire, I wanted to know what’s going to happen with the infamous Stormy Sterling. And sadly (at least about the Stormy part) I was disappointed. The characters are 17 years old like almost every YA character I’ve read about, but they were so-not-real. Raven is childish and selfish, her descriptions are cheesy and… well, not awesomely describing! Alexander’s still “dreamy” and maybe that’s the reason why I enjoyed this last book. He’s a little more mature, confident, and… hot. Luna and Jagger… what a shame of villains! Booo! Stormy? Well, silly girl, so manageable. Becky and Matt was a really cute couple, but in Becky’s case I still don’t buy her relationship with Raven, even for best friend I didn’t find they had a good... chemistry? Trevor? Oh, yes! Trevor’s why I loved Vampire Kisses. Still I can’t understand what Raven thinks of him. She’s attracted to him, she accepted the attraction in “that” moment and yet she keeps talking about him like his enemy. And then, the romance. Raven loves Alexander, Alexander loves Raven. That’s a cute couple. BUT the descriptions kill all the magic. Except the typical “Alexander kissed me deeply” there wasn’t any real emotion shared through Raven’s words. It was like they love each other, they kiss, and she feels weak of her knees, blah, blah, blah… Sadly I doubt I will read another Ellen Schreiber book someday. The writing isn’t something I love now, now that I have read really good books. But after all, after the moment where I realized how much I didn't like the writing, I have to say that I enjoyed this book. Maybe it was the nostalgic part. Maybe it’s because I won’t know about the people in Dullsvile anymore. Maybe because it’s the end of another cycle in my life. Vampire Kissed will have always a good spot in my heart. Because this series made me love vampires and turned me into a better reader. Gracias!

I did cry a little bit at the last page because I was not ready yet. But I am so happy with the ending. This book is one of the best books that I have read so far this year. I am also proud to say that I own the whole series on my personnel book shelf here at my house.

Like everything just went her way and fell perfectly into place like a puzzle. The only thing out of place was Trevor and they swatted him away like a fly. I feel bad for him, really. I wish I knew what happened there... I feel incomplete now. I'm glad everything worked out and all, but I just wish it were more realistic. Less like Raven wrote the book herself to make it a happy ending. Oh well, its over. I sort of felt like the world was revolving around Raven, in this one, more so than usual.

    I thought that her transformation was a little rushed. She didn't really tie up her loose ends, settle how she was going to explain to her parents that she was going to move in with her boyfriend so suddenly. Raven just wasn't very practical. I liked this series, but I was a little disappointed by the ending. I thought that her transformation was a little rushed.

    I'm sad to have ended this series. I truly adored and loved the characters introduced into the series, but in this last book some things didn't flow as well. Like, it still could have continued on. I understand why Schreiber ended it the way she did--I just wanted MORE. More details! (view spoiler)[ We finally get what we've been waiting for.

And that was to be turned into a vampire. It's really emphasized by Alexander throughout the whole series how being turned requires some serious thinking and I was disappointed that in this last book Raven and him have a small argument to where Alexander doesn't talk to her for like a day. Then when Raven finds Alexander (again, stalking him like she's done in a few other books) he suddenly changes his mind. GRANTED, he asks her several times if she's still certain of her decision. Raven obviously doesn't freaking think. Alexander was the voice of reason throughout the series, like how difficult it would be for her to become a vampire after being mortal for so long. Especially when your family except for your brother doesn't know your boyfriend's true identity. Her best friend had a better understanding and she wasn't even dating a vampire. Her best friend didn't learn about Alexander being a vampire until like the 7th or 8th book. Her best friend suggested on Raven waiting until she graduated high school. Reasonable because then she would have been 18 and her parents may not question if she decided to move out and begin college or whatever. At least then, her secret of being a vampire would have been discreet. Nope, impulsive Raven, let's do it now when she's in the middle of school, her parents have no clue, and she's never practiced putting on make up or doing her hair without being in front of a mirror. Not to mention, what are kids at school going to think if she just stops showing up? Yep, let's just forget reason. Not to mention she keeps pressuring her boyfriend to turn her in every book. Why does this sound like marriage or having sex? (Well, Kristyn, it kind of is in a way that... especially with the covenant ceremony). (hide spoiler)] I think I'm more upset at the fact that Raven is still a teenager, so that hippocampus isn't developed...and I was once so incredibly impulsive (I still am), but I guess I'd be doing some of this stupid crap in high school. And I have to remember that this is a YA book and I shouldn't judge it so harshly. It all felt rushed at the end. The climax and everything, everything. Just... I'm really upset right now. The climax and the ending were like every teenager making a dumb decision--so quick and without thinking of any repercussions.

    I started this series at the beginning of the COVID quarantine, and it was exactly what I needed. Though I hadn't read it before, it was strikingly nostalgic for me. Thirteen-year-old me would have been obsessed with this series when it came out, and nearly 30-year-old me still found it appealing and so enjoyable. It's a little funny and interesting to read something that your teen self would have adored it, as an adult. I've enjoyed the ride of these nine books over the last few months.

It's a little funny and interesting to read something that your teen self would have adored it, as an adult. I've enjoyed the ride of these nine books over the last few months. That being said, the final book was a bit lackluster. I was disappointed that we will never get to hear about the vampire exploits of Raven and crew, or whatever happened to Trevor. I was also disappointed that, throughout the series, as some have mentioned, there wasn't much character growth. While I respect that Raven wanted to be a vampire and she was set on it, despite being only a teenager, I found it frustrating and a bit gross that her entire universe revolved around Alexander. There were so many points, in this book especially, where despite Raven's seemingly independent posturing, she needed everyone (even a 12-year-old) to defend her. A bit too damsel in distress for my personal taste. That's one thing at the beginning of the series, but I was hoping she'd grow into a more independent and well-rounded character. That maybe she'd question her feelings for Trevor a little more (even though he definitely needed some therapy). We all knew that it was Raven's dream to be a vampire, but my hopes for her fell flat when not once did she ever really have any solid dreams for herself or hell, even things she wanted to do as a vampire besides spending literally every second with her "vampire mate." Snooze. I found myself thinking "god get a life please?" There was literally no pushback from anyone else in her life (I mean really, her parents would just be chill with her turning into a vampire suddenly and going to live with her boyfriend in a coffin? Yeah, I'm sure that would go just as she planned). I also felt that there were a lot of abstinence undertones (boring, even for YA) and traditional sexuality/relationship notions that went unchallenged and unexplored. These definitely aren't your Anne Rice vampires. In the end, I'm glad Raven got turned and she got what she wanted (not in the weird pseudo-marriage ceremony, but still). But she didn't turn out to be the powerful, curious, and independent heroine that I had hoped she would have ended up being.

    It read like a fanfic. So choppy and sloppy. The only realistic character is Alexander and that's ironic because he's the vampire. Lol. I'm finally done with this series! Woohoo!

    Hmmm... not sure how I like that for the ending to the entire series. It just felt so abrupt and too many things were left undone. It was similar to the rest though.

    The characterisation in "Immortal Hearts" is very authentic and relatable.

Now she wonders if Stormy will be just like Luna or if she will be different. As Alexander and Raven's relationship grows, Raven is pressing more and more on Alexander to turn her into a vampire so that she could join the underworld with him. Will he turn her? Or will she have to resort to other methods of gaining what she wants without Alexander? I would recommend this book to teens who love reading about vampires and romance between the humans and the vampires.

Even though I'm sad that this is the last book and that the series is ending, this book made up for everything and left me wanting more! Too bad there arn't more books to this series about the continuing life of them both. SPOILERS: Raven and Alexander are back, and more happier than ever. Especially since Alexander's little sister stormy is coming for a visit. Luna is a mean bitch as always, and always rubs things in Raven's Face like her and stormy know each other more than she and raven will ever know each other, etc. Raven hooked Luna up with this bartender name Romeo-whos also a vamp, so that luna will stop flirting around raven and all her friends bfs...Stormy arrives, and at first is distant from raven because she wished luna was with alexander, but things take a turn when they both start hanging out with each other, and they both realize that they have so many things in common.and another bonus was when Billy(raven's little brother) has a crush on Stormy and askes her out to his former dance-which btw was a HUGE SUCESS!Becky(raven's bff) is still trying to grasp the whole vampires-r-real thing. As for trevor, cocky and crushing on Raven as ever. Scarlet and Onxy are in this book also, and Onxy is starting to get attracted to sabastian instead of Jagger(luna's white-haired bro). In the end sebastian ends up with Onyx, Stormy with Billy(yes he and his bff henry found out about stormy and being the nerds they are-were fascinated about it). Alexander finally decides to turn Raven and then turns her in the end. Trevor knows about vampires and tries to stop Raven when she goes to the ceremony, but does not suceed. Luna is with Romeo and hopefully happy, and Jagger and Valentine are two lonely brothers but happy none the less.Becky is with Matt and they both are still trying to feel the grasp of knowing about vampires...and are really happy for Raven.#145

    I have to give Ellen Schreiber credit -- not many authors can wussify vampires even more than Stephenie "Sparkly" Meyer. But Ellen Schreiber has managed it, and "Vampire Kisses 9: Immortal hearts" just cements this. I'm not sure if it is the final instalment in her Vampire Kisses series, but after nine volumes of Hot Topic clothes, teen drama and Raven nagging at her boyfriend to make her a vampire, I'm ready for the pain to end. Two words: vampire braces. I would love to summarize the plot, but t I have to give Ellen Schreiber credit -- not many authors can wussify vampires even more than Stephenie "Sparkly" Meyer.

I'm not sure if it is the final instalment in her Vampire Kisses series, but after nine volumes of Hot Topic clothes, teen drama and Raven nagging at her boyfriend to make her a vampire, I'm ready for the pain to end. Two words: vampire braces. I would love to summarize the plot, but there really isn't much of one. First, Raven decides (for purely selfish reasons) to find Luna a "soulmate." It takes about five minutes. Then Alexander's little sister Stormy comes to Dullsville for a visit, and since we can't have any drama lasting more than five minutes, she and Raven are instantly compatible. But oh woe! Stormy is friends with Luna, her old babysitter (yes, vampire babysitter!), and she develops a crush on Raven's geeky little brother! Quelle horreur! But meanwhile, Raven is STILL whining about how she wants to be a vampire, but Alexander is inexplicably reluctant to turn her. And after Jagger gets pushy again, Alexander and Raven have a fight. The thing that struck me about "Immortal Hearts" was that there was no suspense, no conflict. The problems that pop up are complete fluff and are solved immediately with no obstacles. Oh no, will Stormy hate the room Raven designed? Of course not. Oh no, Billy figured out what Stormy is! Oh wait, it doesn't lead to anything. Schreiber tries to cover up the total lack of plot by constantly pelting us with Hot Topic mallgoth fashions, and Raven being stalked by various hot boys. Her prose sounds like a tween's blog ("Luna was fabulously amazing as the Bride of Frankenstein with a pink monster-do"), with matching dialogue ("And these curtains! They are so long and luscious!"). But the worst part is her vampires, who are basically mallgoth versions of suburban white people -- I mean, she even writes in a tween vampire with BRACES. The romance is almost like a parody of teen vampire romances -- shallow but masquerading as Troo Luv, and with lots of "vampirism = sex" symbolism. How cliche. I'll admit it, she does manage to FINALLY wrap up the main plot at the end, but it feels rushed and unsatisfying. Even worse, it leaves a bunch of questions hanging in the air. Its also obvious that Raven hasn't matured since the beginning of the series -- she's still melodramatic, whiny, shallow, selfish and only likes people who are "goth" enough. The only semi-interesting character is Billy, a nerdy kid who is the ONLY person smart enough to deduce what's going on... but hey, why should we care about him? We have his parodytastic sister instead! I don't know if this is the end of the series, but if it is, "Vampire Kisses 9: Immortal Hearts" ends the series with a whimper instead of a bang.
