Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver's brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged. Young, fanged, and fabulous, Melissa de la Cruz's vampires unite in this highly anticipated fourth installment of the Blue Bloods series.

I Give This Book 3.5 Stars!

I have conflicting views of this book. The most distracting part was the narrative. It alternates between Mimi, Schuyler, and Bliss. It would not be so bad if it was more than one chapter at a time in each characters voice. It requires a little bit of concentration to make sure you know the events. But, the chain of events are intense and fast paced. I especially enjoyed Bliss' narrative. Her struggle with keeping control of herself despite the "visitor" was the best part of the story. Especially the ending when she refused to be controlled. I also think Mimi changed a little. She no longer seems to be the selfish character she has been the past 3 books. Schulyer seemed to progress the least. She's still unsure of herself and struggles with her choice of who she wants to be with. I will be interested to see were it goes and how it works out though.
