Hi everyone. This is the fifth book in the series of Blue Bloods. I love this series if you haven’t tell. The way Melissa writes is very good and awesome. In this book she has four parts and the first three are with someone else.
Of course Melissa starts with Schuyler who is her main character as Sky is the character that the first few books were based on. Melissa never did any first person point of view which I think is good since first person is good for some books but for this one I believe that third person point of view is the best.
This book takes place a month after The Van Alen Legacy book left with Sky and Jake leaving Oliver and Mimi behind. They are now trying to figure out with where the third Gate of Hell is so that they could make sure that nothing bad is happening to it.
One of the things that I like about this book and the series is that all of the characters seem so real and that I can actually talk to them in real life. Even if they are vampires. What I also like is that yeah they are vampires who have lived for a pretty long time and yeah most of them are just supposedly “teenagers” and some people don’t think that they should be acting like 50 year olds. The way I think about this is that since they are able to relive all of their past lives and with that I believe eventually it would take a toll on the vampire especially in Mimi’s case on having to be older and try to lead these vampires that it will make the vampire act older and probably fell older than what they actually are. But that is just my idea on something like that. I also like how she goes back and forth about where the book is leading up to in the past to the present. Like in the first book with the Mayflower stuff from Cordelia’s past life and we go off to the present time.
I guess I don’t really have any dislikes….well besides the whole thing of that I just want someone to have a happy ending. I mean I was routing for Dylan and Bliss. ;’( Still sad that Dylan is gone. He was such a good character. The second couple I am routing for is a tossup between Jake and Sky and Kingsley and Mimi. I mean Kingsley and Mimi are like so cute with their bickering. Or at least in my head whenever I was reading about them they were cute. I also wonder if maybe Abbandon and Azrael were just young and thought they loved each other when they did their bonding that so long ago. Now that they are much older and maybe they might have found the people that they were supposed to fall in love with a long time ago now.
I think that this book is crucial for the plot because we find out about a new type of species. Yes there is more than just Angels, humans, and someone like Sky. We also find out about a new type of evil that our characters will have to deal with. I am also really hoping that Charles and Allegra get out of the White Darkness to help Mimi with the Coven and even more that Mimi can find Kingsley if she is ever able to. I am in love with this book series and I know that my mom has told me to critique these a little bit better but I am going to give this book another five stars.

This book is different from the others. This one is broken down into only three POVs. The first has is Schuyler, the second half in Mimi, and the third half is Deming who is a new character.
I just love Schuyler and Jack. I have enjoyed seeing their relationship grow through each book. Their relationship isn't even aloud since he is suppose to be bonded to someone else. In their story, they set up a plan to escape the Countess. When they finally do, they go on a search with Ghedi to look for the Gate of Promise.
In Mimi's story, she asks Oliver to help her find the missing Vampire Victoria. The kidnapper knew too much about them, and was showing humans the vampires on the internet. Mimi had to cover all that up. When they finally found Victoria, it was too late.
Then came in Deming. Another vampire went missing. His name was Paul, and this time Mimi put Deming on the case. After a lot of attempts, Deming finally figures out who killed both vampires and why.
I loved this book!!!!! I can't wait to read the next one since Jack is heading to where Mimi is supposed to be while Mimi and Oliver is heading to where Schuyler is going. That is going to be a fun ride
Schuyler and Jack found themselves being hidden by the European Coven. At first, the safety was welcomed, but when it became clear they were being held against their will, they knew they had to get free. Unfortunately, they aren't just fleeing their captors, they are also fleeing the bounty hunters Mimi sent after Jack. When they are rescued by a strange Somali priest, it becomes clear there is much more going on in the world than they thought. When young girls begin disappearing from villages, there is more to the story than they are ready to hear.
While Mimi was still ready to kill Jack for his betrayal, she hadn't forgotten what was happening at home. In NYC, with Forsythe gone (for harboring Lucifer), the Coven was without a Regis (Coven leader). When they nominate Mimi for the job, she reluctantly accepts the new found power. Soon, though, the situation begins to deteriorate when a young Blue Blood is kidnapped and a video hits the internet. The video not only displays vampires showing off and exposing their powers, it also shows the kidnapped girl being threatened by hellfire- one thing that can kill the very essence of a vampire. Now she must find a way to save the teen (and soon another one) without putting the entire coven in danger.
Deming is a Venator who is known for her skills. She is known for her ability to solve problems for her Chinese Coven, and now she has been brought to New York to help find the missing girls. She infiltrates Duchesne and gets to know the top suspects in the investigation. What she finds out quickly, though, is the person she least expects is responsible for the kidnapping. Deming manages to uncover the same terrifying news Schuyler and Jack have stumbled upon: Lucifer has found a way to attack the Blue Bloods without them even knowing it was coming. Now they are all in danger, and what comes next we must wait to see.
As this series grows up, its readers do too. It went from "Gossip Girl" meets to "Twilight" to a truly dark tale. With the entrance of this new threat, the Nephilim, the story has a number of places to go. I am really interested to see where De La Cruz plans to go with this series. She has already developed a rich story line that has plenty of room to grow. The introduction of new characters definitely breathed a bit of life into the story as well. Deming and the story of her life spiced this story up. Now all I can wonder is what the Blue Bloods are going to do next!
