The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz

Yet another installment in the Blue Bloods series, which follows a group of vampires reincarnated as wealthy New York City prep school kids and their families.

Against my better judgment, I decided to give The Van Alen Legacy, book four in the Blue Bloods series, a try. I wasn’t wild about the first three books, but they had an appealing energy so I thought I’d give the series one more chance. I just couldn’t get into it. I couldn’t find any other reasons to care about these beautiful, rich, entitled vampires–not even Schuyler, branded a killer and on the run from her own kind. I like a good trashy soapy read as much as the next person, but this series doesn’t have enough drama and dish. It’s trying too hard to be popular. That said, I’ll call it a matter of taste, and won’t argue with anyone who says they really love the series.

Many thanks to Hyperion for the review copy.
