In my opinion, the books have been very progressive, with each one there’s more suspense, more intrigue and even more romance. Who? What? When? Where? Why? Well, you’re just going to have to read the series yourself, because I’m trying to keep this review as spoiler free as possible.
The intrigue comes along with mythos of the Blue Bloods. I know it’s been said in the previous book reviews, but the background of the Blue Bloods is one of the most inspired and fascinating I have read about when it comes to vampires. With the third book in the series, we get more of the rich history that has transpired between the characters during their past cycles. You see, the Blue Bloods die so that they can live again. Their blood is saved so that they can be brought back to life when they are needed in order to fulfill their destinies and hopefully return to heaven. They come into their memories around the age of sixteen and when they do, they have the ability to recall with crystal clarity what they have lived through and sometimes the experience is absolutely terrifying. By the end of this book we discover more about Bliss, Schuyler’s close friend, the Force twins and who’s who in the conclave, the ruling body of the Blue Bloods.
This book probably has the most romantic entanglements of the three I’ve read to date. Bliss is still pining after Dylan, who’s been through a trauma that has left him with apparently no memory of their past together. There’s a bonding ceremony in the works, to the delight of one and the disappointment of everyone else. If you’ve read the first two books, you can probably guess who I’m talking about. If you haven’t read the first two books, get on it! Finally, two of the characters I’ve grown to love are engaging in a discreet affair, but it’s not as secret as they may have hoped. Their shared moments have left me swooning (one date in particular left me salivating for the pair). Again, if you haven’t read the series this is just one of the many reasons you shouldn’t hesitate.
Without revealing too much more about Revelations I can tell you that the end is intense in every meaning of the word. There’s action, there’s passion, there’s loss and there’s gasp-worthy revelations about several of our main players. When I reached the last page, I was in a frantic search for more.
