The Coffin Club by Ellen Schreiber

When Raven returns to Hipsterville's cryptic goth haunt, the Coffin Club, she discovers a secret door to another disco-"The Dungeon"-that is inhabited by vampires only. Raven learns that the nefarious Jagger Maxwell has welcomed the vampire clan into the club and has gained the popularity he missed in Romania. He is poised to take over Hipsterville, until a new vampire named Phoenix challenges him for control of the Coffin Club. Unbeknownst to Alexander, Raven becomes caught up in the clash, entranced by the hypnotic vampire culture of the Underworld.

My Thoughts:

The Coffin Club is the fifth installment in the Vampire Kisses series. While this book was good, I didn’t like it nearly as much as the first four books in the series. The Coffin Club felt like a filler book for the middle of the series. While we learned some important information, most of it seemed like things like the reader could have lived without knowing. The plot didn’t bring any new problems left unresolved for the next book. All of the problems were over with by the end of the book. A couple of new characters were introduced, but it doesn’t seem like they will be in any of the future books. My favorite new character is Onyx. Her fangs with a stud in them are bad ass. She also has a fun personality and is a great friend to Raven. Raven’s aunt Libby is always a fun character. I enjoy the novels with her in it immensely. Even though this book was a little bit of a disappointment, I am excited to pick up the next book in the series, Royal Blood. 

I give the Coffin Club: 3/5.

I traded for this book with another blogger. I was in no way compensated for this review.
