Praise for the Blue Bloods series:
?“De la Cruz introduces a conception of vampires far different from traditional
stake-fleeing demons, coupling sly humor with the gauzier trappings of being
fanged and fabulous.”—
Booklist (starred review) “Tasty and alluring.” — Kirkus Reviews “Fans came for the romance but stayed for the slow-build family and murder mysteries.” — Entertainment Weekly

When I first read Blue Bloods in 2011 (only read the first two books, I believe), I had no understanding of the Blue Bloods mythos. I thought everything was weird, shaky, and coincidental. Now that I'm re-reading the series in 2016, and after reading this book, I have a better understanding.
So, essentially, in this book vampires are angels damned to Earth who go through "cycles" to earn back their place in Heaven. I'm not sure who told them that would work, but it's what they're doing. Their are immortal vampires, enmortal vampires, and silver bloods in this book.
Immortal vampires are the vampires most people know about. They drink blood to stay alive. Our immortal vampires include Schuyler, Jack, and Mimi. The thing that differs in this mythos, though, is that these vampires have spirits that are infinitely cycled via reincarnation.
Enmortal vampires are vampires that don't go through the reincarnation process, nor do they go through cycles. They drink blood to stay alive, just like immortal vampires. This series has enmortals Lawrence and Cordelia Van Alen, both of whom are deceased.
Silver bloods are vampires that feed on other vampires; namely, they drink all the blood of the vampire (meaning, the vampires' memories) and complete the corrupting process of Consumption. This series has a few silver bloods: Kingsley Martin, Bobbi Anne and Bliss Llewellyn.
This book gives you a greater look into character motivations, background, includes an index, breaks down the reasoning for why certain things happen in this book, and just seriously gives us a full view of the Blue Bloods world.
KEYS TO THE REPOSITORY is a quick and easy read with lots of refresher information, clarifications, character insite and some new juicy bits to keep things interesting. I'm not usually one for companion books, but I'd say this is a helpful and worth while read for any fan of the Blue Bloods.
The only thing is that at the end it tells about all the students at the school and a one sentence description of them so it is very long and boring, i honestly didnt read them all.
Overall really good to have and the sneaks are awesome.
