Schuyler Van Alen is confused about what is happening to her. Her veins are starting to turn blue, and she's starting to crave raw meat. Soon, her world is thrust into an intricate maze of secret societies and bitter intrigue. Schuyler has never been a part of the trendy crowd at her prestigious New York private school. Now, all of a sudden, Jack Force, the most popular guy in school, is showing an interest in her. And when one of the popular girls is found dead, Schuyler and Jack are determined to get to the bottom of it.
Schuyler wants to find out the secrets of the mysterious Blue Bloods. But is she putting herself in danger? Melissa de la Cruz's vampire mythology, set against the glitzy backdrop of New York City, is a juicy and intoxicating read.
BLUE BLOODS was a book I had overlooked so many times, dismissing it for no apparent reason, and now that I've read it, I am asking myself why I never picked it up before. It's a different type of vampire book, and I like that.
The main character, Schuyler, is easily likable. She's different and I like that. She's shy to her emotions and is willing to fight for what she believes in. And I really like how she handled the situation that becomes shown at the end of the book. And Oliver, her best friend, is really good to her. Their relationship is a little different than most friendships, but I like that it's abnormal.
The only thing that bugged me to the bone is Jack and Mimi's bond. In most books, I'm okay with reading about the main character's crush having another lover, but, in this book, it makes me want to throw things. I have no idea why. I just can't ignore the connection between Schuyler and Jack, and I really want them to be together.
BLUE BLOODS is an easily enjoyable and fast read. Only thing is, nothing really seemed to stick in my mind except the main events. I wouldn't recommend this to all, even though I liked it.
