Author: Melissa de la Cruz
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Release Date: December 28, 2011
Summary: Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps – the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.
Also, witness the bonding of Jack and Schuyler.
Review: I have been on pins and needles waiting for Bloody Valentine, the current installment of Melissa de la Cruz hit series Blue Bloods. And it’s finally out today!
It took me just over an hour to read the book because it’s that good. From the first page (with Oliver battling his inner demon) to the last (which I won’t spoil), I just couldn’t put it down.
In Bloody Valentine, the author introduces us to a new character: Freya. Right away, I knew I’d like her (which just increases my anticipation for the release of The Witches of East End which comes out in the June 21, 2011)…
Back for some added dimension are Allegra and Charles mixed with a little Bendix Chase, who happens to be Schuyler’s father.
We’ll also go to Endicott College, where Allegra falls in love and performs a Sacred Kiss that allows her to see what her life will be like. Of course, this portion of the novel isn’t complete without Cordelia. We’re given a very compelling glimpse into the twins’ cycle mother… and she’s pretty feisty.
Finally, Jack and Schuyler! Two of my favorite couples in the literary world are finally headed for a major commitment, but I’ll let you read the book to see how it all plays out. I promise it won’t disappoint!
