Misguided Angel (Blue Bloods #5)
As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart.
MISGUIDED ANGEL opens right where THE VAN ALEN LEGACY leaves off. Schuyler, who inherited the Van Alen Legacy, trying to locate and protect the five gates that guard the world from Lucifer with her totally-forbidden uber-hot lover, Jack. And then there’s Mimi, in New York, trying to rule over a crumbling coven. And then there’s Super-Cool-Super-Mysterious-New-Character, trying to solve one damn intriguing mystery.
MISGUIDED ANGEL was more of action-y book. Yeah, all of the BLUE BLOODS book are action-filled, but MISGUIDED ANGEL especially. In THE VAN ALEN LEGACY, a lot of questions about Schuyler’s—and the Blue Bloods’—past was revealed, and it was quite a lot of info. to take in. The fact that we get a break from all that with MISGUIDED ANGEL was very nice. We can only handle so much plot-reveal, right?
One of my favorite things about this one—we’re introduced to a new character! In THE VAN ALEN LEGACY, we said goodbye to Bliss. Bliss was one of my characters, and I’m glad she’s getting her own series (April 2012, by the way). But the BLUE BLOODS series has always told the story of three characters, and it wouldn’t have seem right to only get Mimi’s and Schuyler’s side this go-around.
Anyway, about this new character. Don’t wanna give too much away, but her name’s Deming Chen, and she’s a venator from Shanghai (I totally killt that spelling). I really, really liked her, and can’t wait to read more about her in the future books.
Overall, I loved MISGUIDED ANGEL. I mean, duh, right? I’ve never been disappointed with a BLUE BLOODS novel.
