The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz

I am once again impressed by Melissa's skills! THE VAN ALEN LEGACY just might be my favorite of the series!

Since there is no synopsis up on the web, I'll just explain a couple of things. After the death of Sky's grandfather, the Committee is lost. With Jack and Mimi Force's father gone, they have no one to lead. And when Bliss' father steps forward, everyone is happy with the decision, but when a note from an anonymous sender pops up, regretful thinking prevents him from landing the position.

I like to think of THE VAN ALEN LEGACY as the turning point in the series, even though the next book in the series hasn't been released yet. So many things change and happen that it's hard not the think of it as the turning point. Ties are broken, friendships are put first, and shockers are sure to surprise.

Romance is one of my favorite things about this series. I've given up on choosing sides. Jack or Oliver? I love them both! I was hoping that this book would confirm who Schuyler chooses, and thankfully it does! The decision she made isn't disappointing, but will surely cause trouble in the future. I'm anxious to see what will happen next.

THE VAN ALEN LEGACY is full of twists and turns, unexpected romances, and unbelievable details. I can't wait at all for MISGUIDED ANGEL,the next in the series.
