Revelations by Melissa De La Cruz

I've reviewed the first two books of the series already, Blue Bloods and Masquerade.  But here comes Revelations.

This continues the story of Mimi Force, Schuyler Van Alen, and Bliss Llewellyn in their socialite society and learning more and more who they were in their past lives and fighting those who seek to destroy the New York Coven of Blue Bloods.

The search for the Silver Blood is on as a new boy shows up at school, Kingsley Martin.  He's a knockout, a competitor for Mimi's twin brother and soulmate, Jack Force.  Unlike the blond, respectful, Jack, Kingsley likes to play on the wild side.  His dark looks give him away as possibly the one who is behind all the attacks on young Blue Bloods at Duschesne.

What I love is the character development in this book.  This one has shown us more into Schuyler and her learning the ways of the vampire life, although she is just a half blood.  Half human/half vampire.  Her grandfather teaches her quickly and efficiently because he knows something she doesn't.  Her feelings get in the way of everything as she is conflicted between loving her best friend and conduit, Oliver, more than she ought to, and having a relationship with the forbidden one, Jack Force.  When I read Schuyler's point of views, I really feel sorry for her that she is stuck in the middle of everything and the weight is all on her to live up to her family name.  But I also feel like she doesn't really care much for what is going on and who she is.  She just doesn't want any part in it and that part makes me angry at her character.  But we are all like that in some way aren't we?

I don't know why, but I always love reading Bliss's point of view.  It's more mysterious than the rest of them.  She can't remember who her real mother is, she can't focus on who she was in the past.  So she really is searching and wanting to learn who she is.  I love the self discoveries that characters go through.

For this book, I really suggest you start at the beginning to get the full throttle of this storyline.  But this one, really gets you sitting on the edge of your seat.  I read it in a day.  I couldn't put it down.  This is just one part of the climactic point of the story.  There is more.  That's in another review.
