Another YA series bites the dust...

I was never too much into "Blue Bloods" series, but at least first two books were easy to read. This third one took a lot of effort to finish. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that the only thing I was attracted to in Cruz's books was the vampire lore. If in the beginning the lore seemed fresh and original to me, I am now fairly certain Cruz makes stuff up as she goes, without big picture of her world in mind, and this is why I am constantly confused.

Okay, I just have to say that I was really bugged to find out that this is NOT the last book in the Blue Bloods series! Apparently there are 9 books planned in total that was supposed to have been divided into 3 triologies. But this first "triology" is actually going to have 4 books. The next one (and hopefully the end of this particular story) is called "The Van Alen Legacy" and who knows when it's going to be released. Grrrr.

Okay, rant over. Aside from that annoyance, I really liked the story.

So the first two books were okayish, and I was really looking forward to this one, because I noticed that the writing was improving.
And then it just went downhill. Like, REALLY down the hill. All the way to the bottom.
The reason for that? I HATE Jack. All I could think while reading this book was

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And I couldn't have laughed harder

This book was utterly confusing to me. Sometimes i didn't even know how or why someone was doing something. I loved the first two in the series which i was suggested to read by my cousin. It felt like gossip girl met vampires and I was slightly put down over various facts about how things were written which is a horrid side-effect after reading Twilight because you get that notion that all vampire books are like that, eek. I know. During the time i spent reading this book i grew more and more fr ...more

After finishing the first two books I couldn’t wait for the public library to buy the rest of the books so I bought the four Blue Bloods books and read them in one go. The series is just so catching. Even though it’s a bit puzzling to see having a luxurious life seemingly being the only thing that most of the Blue Blood vampires care about in book 1 and 2, but things improve a lot in book 3 when things heat up and the evil doers rush in for the kil
I seriously have no idea why I keep on reading this series. There is NOTHING, literally NOTHING good about it. The first book was okay, but then the series went downhill.

In THIS installment, Schuyler (I still have no idea to pronounce her name. Is it like Skyler? Schooler? ?!?!?!!?!?!?!) is off doing more stupid stuff. The other characters are doing stuff, and as the title says, there are REVELATIONS. To be honest, that huge one at the end caught me off guard, and also was a nice twist, but the

True love is meant to be, but not if your brother is falling in love with a newborn. Blue Bloods: Revelations is by Melissa De La Cruz. Schuyler has moved in with her uncle, Charles Force and her “cousins” Jack and Mimi. The only problem with that is Mimi is Sky’s enemy and Sky has fallen for Jack and he returns to feelings. However, Mimi and Jack are suppose to be together and Mimi is trying her best to persuade Sky to stop, but Sky and Jack won’t listen to her at all. Meanwhile, Bliss has fina ...more

'Revelations' was a "meh" book for me compared to the previous novels in the series. It was alright but I sincerely hoped for a better plot/story to got for it as it is the main reason I am enjoying the series thus far. I DID give the series a lower rating because it didn't continue with the epicness of book 2, and I am not ashamed to admit it. Characters were enchanting as always and I am still rooting for a couple to officially declare themselves in the following novel. To be honest I am getti ...more

I honestly don't know what to think about this series. About this book. About life as a whole. Because it was never meant to be. As tears began forming in her eyes as she looked into his cold ones.

Right now, you're probably thinking, 'WHAT?!? o_O' Well, now you know how I felt about the book. One minute, you know what's happening, then you don't.

Schuyler Van Alen feels trapped. Although her grandfather Lawrence is back, Schuyler has been forced by the court system to live with her uncle Charles Force and forbidden by her uncle to see or talk with Lawrence or her best friend Oliver. Living in the imposing Force household is nothing if uncomfortable despite its many luxuries; Mimi constantly targets her to satisfy her petty spite and Jack, her forbidden crush, won't even as much as look at her. The only things that can comfort Schuyler ar ...more

For those who don't know, the Blue Bloods series is essentially gossip girl meets twilight; Vampires (the Blue Bloods) pretty much compose all of the artistocracy in the world. Their souls are continually stored (through their blood) to be reincarnated life after life. Vampires are descended from the great battle for heaven and on earth serve to keep the balance between the light and the dark- especially those Blue Bloods who are corrupted to the side of the fallen Lucifer. All the while being s ...more

I have tried to like this series and failed three times. There is so many things in this series that could work but don't. The ideas of "fallen angels" turning into earthly vampires is pretty damn genius - I love it! All the old mythology and clichéd vampire lore has been thrown out of the window here and a whole new world has been carved. The best part of the series has been discovering the limitations and new angles Melissa de la Cruz has created. But that's where the "good" stops...

Eh. Boring. Zzzzz.

Ok, so the first two books were entertaining, the idea of Vampires as fallen angels pretty interesting.

But this book was so badly written. She jumped from one thing to the other without giving you a bridge between points. Is like she wanted to make her point in one seating without taking the reader into consideration. Most of the book is written with someone closing their eyes and then weeks have passed and you dont have a connection of what your character has been up to.

It was a nice, luxurious break! I know which book I’ll turn to whenever I feel like needing a luxurious break.

There was too much information. Lot of angels, demons.. But every doubt in the past two books are cleared up in this third. The second Great War has begun.In short, this book started everything afresh.

From this book:
(view spoiler)
With the third book in the series, we get more of the rich history that has transpired between the characters during their past cycles but all of that is overshadowed by a lot of ridiculous teenage drama.

I seriously felt like the whole series took a trip to the land of soap operas. Mimi is engaged to Jack even though she loves Kingsley - while Jack loves Schuyler & wants to be with her - but let's not forget Oliver also loves Schuyler & she loves him too - just not that way, because Sch

This series just keeps getting better and better. I am so glad that one of my friends recommended this to me because if she hadn't I would have missed out on a wonderful series that is so imaginative. The history behind everything that happens throughout these books is so detailed and unique that I have to wonder why I don't hear more about these books. I have never come across a book that is like this one and it is refreshing to read something new. Revelations is part of the vampire craze but t ...more
I think the story here is getting a little convoluted. Maybe because it's had been a while between reading the second and third, but I thought the relationship with Jack was odd. They weren't at the point of having secret apartments to meet in from what I remember of the last one.

And while this book did focus a lot on Bliss, the character of interest for me in the last one, I thought the revelation about her was not well set up. I could see the few places where hints were kind of set up for it,

As I said, this review may have a few spoilers. Before I start talking about the book, I just want to say that this book was my least favorite out of the first three. It may be because I didn't like the ending. At all. I just wanted to throw the book out of the window sometimes. First of all, Lawrence is dead. Just when I thought things were looking up for the Van Alens, Melissa De la Cruz kills off Lawrence. And Dylan. Why did Dylan have to die? Why couldn't it have been someone else?

Personal Response: The book Revelations combines New York designer details with vampire fantasy and suspense. The plot is definitely getting more interesting due to all the fear and distrust between the characters. I rate this book 5 or 5 stars.

Plot: The Blue Bloods are now dealing with darker forces. Most of them have completed their change into vampires, but they still have to train to understand their skills. Mimi and Jack are already preparing for their Bonding. Schuyler is secretly meeting

I read the book Revelations where Schulyer is living with her adapted family which is actually her uncle and the guy that she fell deeply in love with. His name is Jack Force, smart, cute, and sweet. Jack and Schulyer act like they never talk but they only do it so Mimi (Jacks sister) won't find out. They always meet in a secret place in a place that Jack bought for them to meet. While those two meet Mimi is already preparing her and Jacks bonding, but Jack does not want to do the bonding with h ...more

This book is the reason I will no longer read this story. It reads like a primetime soap opera keeping in mind that the target audience is 12 and 13. Situations make it seem an affair is going on. Moments I was waiting for were told as after the fact. What?! Um...why am I reading? Nothing really seems to be working toward a final resolution rather it seems like a soap opera where minute details are drawn out book after book with very little being revealed to a reader.

Ani třetí díl mě vůbec nezklamal. Série si pořád drží tu pomyslnou laťku, kterou nasadila už od prvního dílu. Ten byl sice ještě trochu slabší, nicméně další dvě pokračování už byly docela fajn.
Odhalení mělo trošku pomalejší rozjezd, zpočátku se nic moc nedělo. Bliss neustále fňukala nad Dylanem, Schuyler neustále omílala to, že si jí Jack nevšímá, a Mimi plánovala svatbu, aniž by se samozřejmě ptala na názor ženicha. To jsem se trochu nudila, naštěstí se to ale postupně rozjelo a konec mi vyraz

This is where I stop calling them Vampires. I mean come on, they are really Angels. towards the ending I completely forgot that they are supposed to be blood suckers.

The story of this 3rd book begins when Charles Force successfully adopted Schuyler Van Alen, his niece. After Sky saves Mimi's from being condemned she still continued as her usual self - ungrateful hag. Then came the illicit love affair of Jack Force and Schuyler Van Alen, I was disturbed at first, Schuyler doesn't strike me as st

“Bet you can't even name one romantic movie you like," she teased.
She felt smug when a few minutes went by and Oliver was still unable to name one romantic movie he could profess to enjoy.
The Empire Strikes Back," Oliver finally declared, tapping his horn at a Prius that wandered over the line.
The Empire Strikes Back? The Star Wars movie? That's not romantic!" Schuyler huffed, fiddling with the air conditioner controls.
Au contraire, my dear, it's very romantic. The last scene, you know, when they're about to put Han in that freezing cryogenic chamber or whatever? Remember?"
Schuyler mmm-hmmmed.
And Leia leans over the ledge and says, 'I love you.'"
That's cheesy, not romatic," Schuyler argued, although she did like that part.
Let me explain. What's romantic is what Han says back. Remember what he says to her? After she says 'I love you'?"
Schuyler grinned. Maybe Oliver had a point. "Han says, 'I know.'"
Exactly," Oliver tapped the wheel. "He doesn't have to say anything so trite as 'I love you." Because that's already understood. And that's romantic.”
“Even if they end up together, which I highly doubt, given the strength of that particular bond-...-but even if Schuyler still loves him, or thinks she does, it doesn't matter.
Because Jack is going to leave her one day. i know he will. He's too much for Schuyler. They're wrong for each other. Anyone can see that.
And when he leaves her, I'll be there.
However long it takes, I'll still be there for her.
