Series: Van Alen Legacy, #1
Genre: YA Fantasy
Blue Bloods is the first in the Van Alen Legacy Series. It stars the lives of Fanged & Fabulous kids from Manhattan, who find out they are actually Blue Bloods- Vampire’s. So pop the Champagne, and take a trip inside the lives of the super rich & privileged ‘It’ Crowd.
I have read this book several years ago, but the series is now complete. I have a few Teen Vampire Romances, and I LOVED them.. They are addicting.
The cover, is simply genius: pearls and bite marks- perfect for the lifestyle of these young and fanged.
The book starts out with Schuyler Van Alen and her Best friend Oliver, at a club called the Bank. The club next door, Palladium, features the IT crowd, Mimi & Jack Force, and Bliss. The lines between cliques become really blurred as their fellow classmate from Duchense is killed that same night.
Schuyler & Bliss are then invited to the Committee, where they find out they are Vampires that are reincarnated after their physical shell dies after about 100 years. Except that Schuyler is different, she’s a new soul, instead of a reincarnation… & that’s not a good thing. There is something out there killing the vampire’s, and they will not be recycled.
Overall, it’s a good premise and start to the series, however, the romance between Jack and Schuyler is redundant. He’s a first class Jack-ass- and what is happening with him & his sister??!!
It was a great beginning to a series and it was filled with mythology, and overall 5/5 sparkles
