Masquerade (Blue Bloods #2)Description: Schuyler Van Alen wants an explanation for the mysterious deaths of young vampires. With her best friend, Oliver, Schuyler travels to Italy in the hope of finding the one man who can help—her grandfather. Meanwhile, back in New York, preparations are feverishly underway for the Four Hundred Ball, an exclusive gala hosted by the city’s wealthy, powerful, and unhuman—a true Blue Blood affair. But it’s at the after-party, a masquerade ball thrown by the cunning Mimi Force, that the real danger lurks. Hidden behind the masks is a revelation that will forever change the course of a young vampire’s destiny.
Rich with glamour, attitude, and vampire lore, this second installment in the Blue Bloods saga will leave readers thirsting for more.Review: I enjoyed the first Blue Bloods book, and I did like this one, too. But, let’s start with the negatives: Mimi and Jack. Mimi aggrivated me the most of the two of them, although Jack did his fair share. Everyone in this book is beautiful, rich, and has a perfect love story, no? Well, Mimi–of course–has that and more, and the one time she gets what she deserves (Being burned to death) Jack has to go charm Sky into saving his sister. And, of course, even though she tried to kill Sky, she gets out easily. w00t for money. And Mimi and Jack return to their incestive relationship.
Kingslywhatshisface? Not being Dylan? *Sniff* And Bliss being his other half? What is this?
It was definitely a mystery, and it took very large plot twists. Sometimes you would think, “Well, it must be Charles Force…” And the next, “It was Mimi! Mimi did it!”
Sky’s love triangle-thing. Sometimes you’d be, “Woohoo Jack! Yeah! He rules!” And others you’d be completely team Ollie. I, personally, was always team Ollie, and was dissappointed to hear that she didn’t love him back, but, hey, I always root for the wrong guy. The best friend…not a good choice on my part. :]
Not much I have to say on this…although I am anxious to read the next one!
Side note: Do NOT compare this to Twilight or say that this has competition with Twilight. Twilight is a completely different genre–love and mystery. The vampire ways are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and there is a totally different plotline.
