Blue Bloods: The Van Alen Legacy

BEWARE! This is a review of the 4th book in a series. There are not spoilers for this book, but there might be spoilers for previous books in the series. 'Tis the nature of the beast. All you need to know is that this series is awesome, as is this installment.

The Van Alen Legacy Melissa de la Cruz

The Conclave blames Schuyler for Lawrence's death, so she's on the run with Oliver. Bliss is in seclusion, trying to fight the visitor in her mind. Mimi's a Venator, looking for the truth. Jack's just looking for Schuyler.

Oh Hello! Just when we think we're going to get some answers, de la Cruz just throws more questions at us! And apparently, a spin-off series to be starting soon.

What I loved most about this was that she works in the recession. For a bunch of wealthy vampires who live off returns on investments, the stock market crash hits them, and hits them hard. Things must be scaled down, which goes over oh-so-well with the more spoiled among them.

BUT! While Melissa de la Cruz keeps me asking questions, I do get to ask her a few directly. My interview will be posted later today! Look for it!

I enjoyed this one as well. Who will the spin off feature? The Silverblood? I'm fascinated by him - he's like the Angel to the Blue Bloods Buffy cast...

Well, I can't say too much abut the spin off without giving away a large portion of the book, but at the end of Van Alen Legacy, one of the characters was given a mission to track down some other supernatural creatures to help the vampires. I'm pretty sure that branch of adventure will be the new series.
