Ah, what a shame!

I LOVED this series at the beginning. The first four books were really good. They were interesting, well written, unique and captivating. It's completely lost its way though, sadly. The last two books have been huge let downs.

This was just really... boring. I feel like it was a waste of time and money and I don't feel like I gained anything by reading it. It was really all over the place and I just didn't care! Whatever spark these books used to have is sadly gone and it's suc

The Blue bloods series is definitely my dirty pleasure ^_^; I dunno what it is about this series but it got me hooked... bah... ok I loooved Jack and Sky that's why I've hung in there.. Now I just want to see how everything ends. That is all.

This series cuts me in half. It's really good on some parts, others not so much.

I've wanted to give a review since the third book but since I've reached this book I thought what the heck, let me just start from here and see if i can sum it up from the first book up to this one:

Schuyler/Jack - They're relationship is pretty annoying.

It's always the same. Hot guy never notices girl. Girl falls maddeningly in love with secretive, brooding boy the very first time they *flirt*. I could just see where

Oh my God, I didn't see this coming! Engrossing, heart pounding, jaw-dropping secret spilling, action-packed and… finally! Finally, connection!!! It all makes sense now, except what happened in Florence?
We now know what sky is… her connection to the gate of promise… But, how did Allegra and Luci ahh… make Bliss??? Again, WTF happened in Florence! Melissa de la Cruz gave this book her best! And… I approve!

For starters I only had a little clue on what I was getting into. Which is surprising since this the 6th blue blood book and by which it is evident that I should have been more than just a little clued in on the happenings. But that is the beauty of this series, it is highly unpredictable. You are never sure what to expect and when you do expect something the author again throws something unexpected at you. At one point in this book I even thought that the author is going to pull of a "Breaking ...more

Is it just me or do these books feel like they're dragging on now. The first three books were like blam, blam, blam and then it was like, schuuurch! I have been reading them because I try to be loyal, but this one I just can't. I cannot soldier through. I have only read maybe two pages and I just can't. Where's the tension. Schuyler, in my opinion was never a great heroine, she had her moments but the secondary characters were who kept me reading and then it just got so tedious, like poor Oliver ...more

Whoa.
Just.. whoa.
So, Lost in Time takes after Jack-s and Schuyler’s bonding.
Now they’ve got to wake up and do what they planned to do all along, to stay true to their duty.
Meanwhile, Mimi decides she cares more about having her love back with her than taking revenge on her betraying twin.
So she sets off for Hell, accompanied by Oliver.
Like Bloody Valentine, we don’t have Bliss’s POV anymore. I wonder what she’s doing, how’s her mission doing. But anyway.
This book is all fighting and adventure, s

This is the penultimate installment of the Blue Bloods series. I can’t really discuss plot without spoiling the other series, but suffice it to say that Jack and Schuyler are happy (for now, but for how long?), Mimi wants to get Kingsley back and we start learning more about Allegra’s backstory from her own narration.

The next book should be incredible—a final showdown between Blue Bloods and Silver Bloods, AND with the addition of a player we learn about at the end of Lost in Time. (I know that

I didn't get very far at all. I mean, what happened?

After enjoying the previous books, I ended up flipping through to see what happened in this latest installment. The characters have changed either to whiny teenagers or teenagers who act as though they're eighty years old (which I wouldn't have had a problem with if it was always like this in the series). There was no set balance and unfortunately for me to really get into a book, I have to see the characters grow and develop.

Can I just say how much this book is The Bomb Diggity? I mean really, it is da bomb! OK, first off the plot line. Man o man, was it good. I have never felt right at home when reading this book. With every turn of the page, I felt the energy flowing between my fingers as I delved into this world. Everything is at its own time and nothing is left out.

The characters of this book are right where they are supposed to be and them some. So many new changes, both good and bad, had me smiling. I love the

I have been a loyal follower of the series since reading the first book.

To be honest, this book left me feeling rather ... confused. First off, I'm not a fan of the romantic pairings. I'm not a Jack & Schuyler fan, I'm not a Mimi & Kingsley fan, and I'm definitely not an Allegra & Ben fan. So, the pairings leave much to be desired on my end; however, what I have always enjoyed about this series has been the different characters, as individuals, and also the whole concept of Fallen An

much better than the last book, i still miss the more straight forward narrative of the earlier books.

i love what mimi is becoming, and doing. i miss bliss and want her own book now. i thought the inclusion of the beauchamp witches was possibly a little forced, but i didn't mind so much. the whole catherine of siena thing annoyed me.

yes, it's a set up book. and it's lame that it's setting up for a book that is over a year away from release, but it's not like we haven't had this before . . . th

Oy vey, I'll be so glad when this series is over. At this point I'm only reading it because I want to know what happens in the end. I feel like my mom watching Days of Our Lives despite the fact that she dislikes most of the characters and tends to fast-forward through storylines she doesn't care about. This book nearly killed it for me; I was so close to just putting the book down and writing off the series for good until I glanced in the back of the book (mostly to see how much more I had to r ...more

First, books that go back and forth between storylines drive me insane.
Second, there is so much assumed by the author. Does she think I know anything about...
Seven circles, gates, gatekeepers, star keys, Paul Rayburn and Onbasius and the list goes on and on.
The concept of Nephilum is never fully explained and very different than every other source. Aren't Nephilum the children of humans and fallen angels. Uh, making Schuyler one? Forked tongues?

I really liked this book. It had so much mystery and romance i fell in love with. And when u read the ending it will leave u breathless and hungry for the next and last book "Gates of Paradise". I couldn't put the book down.

I thought the book "Lost in Time" was a really good book. Jack and Schulyer are still looking for the gatekeeper, Catherine of Siena. They realized that she was in Cairo so that is where they went. When they got there Jack could since that his sister, Mimi, was there as well. Mimi was there with Oliver to try and get her beloved Kingsley back. As Mimi and Oliver descend deeper into Hell Mimi knows that it is a huge risk taking a human down there. Jack knows that the bond between him and Schulye ...more

Lost in Time follows three separate story lines that in the end come together and set things up for the next and last book in the series.

Mimi is traveling through the Underworld with faithful Oliver by her side to retrieve Kingsley, the man she loves. Mimi is a character that really sneaked up to me. I despised her personality and behavior in the first three books of the series, but now she is one of my dearest characters to read about. Out of all the characters that we met during the Blue Blood

I'm real disappointed that literally NOTHING happened in this book. Nothing was solved, questions answered but that lead to more unanswered questions, characters brought back but high prices were paid. Characters felt tacky, unrealistic, nothing was the same, these characters were just so 2D, Bland and boring. It's as if each character is a completely different person. I don't know how Melissa de la Cruz did it, but just to imagine myself writing such a boring book kills me. I skimmed the last h ...more

About the Book:
It's near the end of the Blue Bloods series, and the action and adventure is heightening with each tale. In this book, we follow three different stores. The first one revolves around Schuyler and Jack as they continue to seek out the Gate of Promise. In this story, they continue to have issues with the bonding link. putting more pressure on Jack to figure out what to do. Then, in Mimi's story, she and Oliver travel to Hell to retrieve Kingsley's soul. The final story is set in the

First Impression:
As a long time fan of this series, I have been waiting for things to hit the fan. Both plot and character wise. With so many threads going on, I have been dying for the series to begin to climax. And it looked like I may be finally able to get this with Lost in Time.

Lost In Time is the 6th installment in the Blue Bloods series.I write this review assuming that you have read all the Blue Blood novels up until this point



Lost In Time is once again split into 3 parts. One part is about Schyler and Jack and their journey to Alexandria and Cairo in order to find the gate and protect the guardian. Another part is about Mimi and Oliver going to Alexandria as well, to descend into Hell and bring Kingsley back, and the last part is focused on the past and tells the

"Lost in Time" by Melissa de la Cruz was a great book. I really enjoy reading this series. Schuyler and Jack have a plan. They need to find the Gate of Promise, so Schuyler can fulfill the Van Alen Legacy. On their journey to Cario, Jack can feel the presence of his sister, Mimi. That's only because Mimi and Oliver have decided to go down into the underworld and get Kingsley back. She finds out that Kingsley only thinks she's down in Hell, because of the Coven. That's not it though, Mimi loves K ...more

Lost in Time is the latest installment of the Blue Bloods series by author Melissa De La Cruz. Before I get into discussing the book, I want to urge any of you who have not read her series of short stories, Bloody Valentine, to do that now. It isn’t essential to read the stories to understand what is happening in this book , but it definitely gives you more insight into the characters and the situations they have found themselves in.

What I thought of this book overall (read only this section if you do not want to be spoiled) : Each time I picked it up though I enjoyed it every time. It's a great book to escape to from the real world. The best thing about this series is that it's not limited omniscient. You get many different points of view, which makes the story make a lot more sense.

My favorite character is Mimi especially because (view spoiler)

What the hell was this? Where has the original splendor of the Blue Bloods gone? I can't even write a worthy review because of how upset I am. This was trash, complete and utter trash.


The Characters:
- Ok. I really hate Jack right now. "My love, my beloved." Stfu. No one talks like that. And he's portrayed like tough shit when he's not. In two pages he kills a Croatoan. Really? That's it? Couldn't make it a little more challenging?

- Schuyler is a worthless piece of crap. No emotion whatsoever. In
