Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz (Blue Bloods 3)

Half-vampire Schuyler learns more about her lineage and has a secret love affair with the twin of her nemesis, as the war between the vampire Blue Bloods and Lucifer’s army of Silver Bloods escalates.

When I signed up to review Revelations, I didn’t realize it was book 3 in a series, and I really had a hard time catching up with all of the vampire lore and the history between the characters. From what I gathered, vampires were fallen angels who mutinied against Lucifer during the war with heaven. They couldn’t be fully redeemed but were given life on earth in exchange for turning to the light. They reincarnate throughout the centuries, and each vampire has to find his or her “bond” in each cycle, so that they can re-bond in a ceremony that unleashes their powers. It’s a pretty cool mythology with a lot of potential, but since I didn’t have the backstory I had trouble wrapping my brain around the idea of “good” fallen angels–especially when they’re acting treacherously.

The main character is Schuyler, a half-vampire without a bond. She’s having a torrid affair with Jack Force, the twin and bond to Mimi, her arch-nemesis. She’s hoping that Jack will sever his bond with Mimi and choose to bond with her. Meanwhile, her best friend Bliss is having blackouts and bizarre visions of a man in a white suite. She thinks she’s going crazy and doesn’t know who to turn to. Behind all of this is the rising threat of the Silver Bloods, those fallen angels who stayed loyal to Lucifer and who want to destroy the Blue Bloods once and for all.

I had to giggle upon realizing that Schuyler and Bliss are fashion models by profession–there’s something just so perfectly decadent about that choice. The tone of the book is Gossip Girls by way of Lestat, and it’s a lot of fun.
