Revelations (Blue Bloods #3)
Schuyler Van Alen s blood legacy has just been called into question - is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left st
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....more
Okay, rant over. Aside from that annoyance, I really liked the story....more

After finishing up Masquerade, the second book in the Blue Bloods series, I was anxious to get my hands on the next book, Revelations. Fortunately I didn’t have to wait long to sink my teeth into it.
In my opinion, the books have been very progressive, with each one there’s more suspense, more intrigue and even more romance. Who? What? When? Where? Why? Well, you’re just going to have to read the series yourself, because I’m trying to keep this re...more
Two (minor) complaints about the book :
1. It felt short. I was able to read it in less than an hour and a half, with only a tiny bit of skimming. Sometimes a short boo...more
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,...more
Questo capitolo è composto da un colpo di scena dietro l'altro. Risciamo finalmente ad inquadrare meglio la stessa Sly, Oliver con il suo fiero romanticismo, Mimi con la sua freddezza pronta a tutto pur di tenersi il suo Jack e, sì, Jack che finalmente si mostra per quello che findamentalmente è: for...more
From the get-go, I fell in love with the icy, cold-hearted vamp whose weakness was her other half - the man she'd been in love with for thousands of years. She had such appeal to me, such a draw unlike any other character. It didn't matter, for whatever reason, that she was cruel, malicious, or bitter. To me, it made sense. I always rooted for her, maybe because I just knew no one else would. At the time I read these, the rest of the series wasn't out yet and u...more
After finishing Masquerade, I quickly moved on to Revelations. Firstly, I'd like to say that the summary of this book isn't very accurate at all. Maybe I was just stupid and completely glanced over this, but I didn't really see much at all about Schuyler being a Silver Blood. I remember it being mentioned in passing, but I certainly wouldn't say that it...more
Things become more complicated in the Blue Bloods series. Schuyler is now being forced to live with the Forces, and Charles us refusing to let her see either her grandfather or Oliver so Schuyler is forced to find ways around this restricting rule. However, this isn't the only complication in Schuyler's life. Schuyler also has a secret relationship with Jack, and she comes to find out that if the bond between Mimi and Jack is broken, Jack will be executed. Meanwhile, in her own su...more
I do NOT understand the whole modeling sub plot...It goes on and on at times, and I find myself feeling like it is the "commercial" that won't end and I just want to get back to watching my "show".
I like the vampire/angel connections...most of the time...they do leave me with questions and some confusion at times...
Somehow this story feels sort of like watching a soap opera...nothing ever really seems to happen then a...more
All is never what it seems. Schuyler Van Alen is a blue Blood, one of the city's glamorous vampire elite. Or so she thinks. Her blood legacy has just been called into question: Is she a Blue Blood or is it the more sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins?
The stakes are high, the battle is bloody; and through it all, Schuyler must choose between duty and passion, love and freedom.
The cover rating: 4... It...more
On page 96... And it's getting better and better between Schuyler and Jack! I wanna die! lol And I bet Mimi already told Oliver about their rendezvous...
This novel had some twists and turns that that left shocked and confused all at once. One of my pet peeves about books it being lost or confused when reading. I consider myself a smart girl so when I don't gets something...more
In this book things are coming to a head. The Silver Bloods are evidently somehow infiltrated into some of the prestigious Blue Bloods families but no one knows who or where. With Lawrence running the council things are changing at Duchesne school. The students are now learning more about how to defend themselves. Things are getting worse for Bliss; who instead of just having bl...more
Although I understand that the elite rich kid aspect is a huge part of the story, i don't r...more

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?"
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.”
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.
