What I love about the Blue Bloods series is that while many (myself included) say it’s Gossip Girl + Vampires, the books prove to be more action-packed and substantive rather than fluff. And the vampires? Well, their angel mythology is one of those mythologies I wish I had created because it’s that cool and in depth. Each Blue Blood has a history and it’s always interesting to see who they were in a past life.
At times the dialogue comes across a little too formal, but given the maturity of the vampires, it’s okay. I love the way Ms. de la Cruz weaves the high society aspect with all the vampire mythology. The hierarchy in the Blue Blood world is really well developed and, in a good way, does remind me of Gossip Girl. She has an eye for detail and an incredible talent for leaving you on the edge of your seat frantic to find out what happens next.
Although this wasn’t my favorite of the series, I still enjoyed it overall. It did feel like more of a filler novel, but it’s still worth your time. If you haven’t started this series yet, I suggest you do because it’s addicting. 🙂
