This is the first book in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz.
Within New York City’s most elite families, there lurks a secret society of celebrated Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are the powerful and the wealthy—and in fact, they are not human. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires.
Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at Duchesne, her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapidated mansion. Schuyler is a loner—and happy that way.
But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler’s life changes dramatically. She has a mosaic of blue veins on her arms, and craves raw meat. The death of a popular girl from Duchesne is surrounded by a mystery that haunts her. And strangest off all, Jack Force, the most popular boy in school, is showing a sudden interest in her.
Schuyler wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?
This was a great read. :)
The concept of Blue Bloods is one that I have not read before and that makes it fascinating to me. :)
Normally I have a book figured out fairly quickly - but this one kept me on my toes for the first 100 pages. I had ideas - but then I was blown away by the full story of where the vampires came from. :)
The only draw back I had to this book was all the brand name dropping. She was wearing this pair of jeans or this shirt or those shoes. It was a bit annoying after a while. But then after about 100 pages or so that thinned out a little bit. :)
I am very interested in finding out how this story ends. I have the 2nd book on the tbr shelf and look forward to reading it and obtaining the others in this series. :)
I give Blue Bloods 5 out of 5 stars. :)
