Overview

With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. 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.

Young, fanged, and fabulous, Melissa de la Cruz's vampires unite in this highly anticipated fourth installment of the Blue Bloods series.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Vikki Terrile
A year has passed since the vampire massacre in Rio, and the New York coven is in disarray. Schuyler and her human conduit, Oliver, have been running since Rio, Mimi has joined the Venators to track down the missing Watcher in the body of Bliss's little sister, and Bliss, having lost the year possessed by the Visitor, is struggling to keep herself in her own body. de la Cruz continues to build the mythology of the Blue Bloods in this fourth book in the series, expanding the past lives of the young, rich, and powerful vampires into the time of Ancient Rome and far beyond to their origins as angels and demons. Chapters alternate between the three young women at the center of the saga—Schuyler, Mimi, and Bliss—and while these different perspectives create a complete view of the action, the structure becomes choppy on occasion. The story depends heavily on details revealed in earlier books; readers should definitely read (and even reread, if it has been a while) the rest of the series first to fully understand what is going on here. The climactic battle with Lucifer and the Leviathan is strangely anticlimactic, and the revelation that Bliss must find "the wolves" and bring them to join the Blue Bloods' battle is an eye-roller in these post-Twilight days. But there is plenty of adventure, romance, brand-name dropping, and even classical history in this installment; the Blue Bloods faithful will not be disappointed. Reviewer: Vikki Terrile
