Dungeon was a place where vampires hung out, opened only for members. she met with Alexander's enemy, Jagger, n a new hypnotic vampire named Phoenix. soon, she got caught up in the battle between vampires n was determined to find out the reason behind her boyfriend's change of attitude.
i failed to notice that Coffin Club (2008) was actually Book 5 of Vampire Kisses series until i finished reading the whole book. it took me longer than i expected even though the language used was simple n straightforward. its main reason being i wasn't exactly absorbed into the story like how it usually would be when i read. i was not one with the characters at all. like all typical vampire romance, Raven struggled between giving everything up to be with Alexander for eternity, or remained mortal. although there were much action throughout the book, there weren't enough depths in it. i am having doubts about following the series from its beginning for now.
