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.

“Never short on laughs and shudders…Schreiber again concocts a lively and suspenseful story that ends on a tantalizing cliffhanger.” Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
“A good choice for Goth lovers and fans of romantic vampire stories.” School Library Journal
Who says dating a vampire is easy? Raven's nocturnal romance with her immortal love, Alexander, is definitely dicey, but even more so with Alexander's meddling half-vamp cousin in town. Claude and his sketchy gang are on the hunt for a stash of blood-filled vials that can turn them into pure vampires. With an old family feud casting a shadow on the search, they'll do anything to get their hands on the vials. Raven and Alexander must swiftly mastermind a plan to outwit them, but will the very lure of the vials create more risk for Raven than she could ever imagine? And deepen her own quandary about the possibility of becoming a vampire?
In a hip, sexy romance for young teens, Schreiber tells an intriguing story about an unusual first love when a girl meets a particularly toothy new guy in town.
The romantic story of Goth-girl Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, concludes in this third and final volume.
