Excerpt: "Schuyler Van Alen's blood legacy has just been called into question: is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.
When an ancient place of power is threatened in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high, the battle is bloody; and through it all Schuyler is torn between duty and passion, love and freedom.
Romance, glamour, and vampire lore collide in the highly anticipated third book in best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series."
My Ramblings: Constant complaint is going to be the pacing of this series. There isn't a lot of build up to some of the actions or emotions so it just feels like things are happening to happen. I get that with the bonds it would happen almost instant but there isn't near enough build up for Schuyler's depth of love for Jack. I don't want to call it obsessional but same intensity I guess. Curious to see what Michael's plan is, have yet to guess it which is nice. Though I wasn't really surprised finding out that he planned on Mimi getting caught/wanted her to do bad. Still trying to figure if it's Bliss or Jordan that is Schuyler's sister. Because if its Bliss, how did that union occur? The concept for the story as a whole is fun, I just wish it were fleshed out more. There isn't a lot of feeling to this one either. The characters aren't thinking things through to an extent (yes they are teens but still) and I realize that part of it is that they don't question the leaders but that is clearly stupid. It's been proven to be a bad idea. But it's bad for the reader in terms of "oh, well this is happening now." "oh we are going to another country for no reason."
Idk, it just seems like the weirdest rule for them, the usurpers, to not question authority. Especially in the mortal realm.
