Book Review: The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz

With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it?

The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods, #4)

The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz - This is my favourite to date. The series only gets better the longer it goes to me.  This was so action packed & full of intrigue it was awesome.

Schuyler & Oliver are on the run, travelling all over the world to hide from the Venators only to be found by none other than Jack Force.  This is so very romantic, imagine the love of your life rescuing you when you thought they were safe back in New York.  This was a good turn in the story.

Mimi & Bliss also have a big part in this book.  Mimi sees action & love instead of being the stuck up young princess, she seems to have a personality & feeling for others that we didn't seem to see in the previous books.  Bliss goes follows her path & tries to work out what is going on in her mind.  Tries to work out what is going on with the baddies.  It all works out perfectly & meshes together wonderfully.

Melissa de la Cruz is amazing, her ideas & all the detail she goes into for the back stories for each of her character is just fantastic.  This book goes into further detail of the previous cycles for the main characters & some on the plots seem to click into place with more detail that is offered.  At the beginning with each chapter was a different person & their story evolving, I thought this is going to take forever to get to the action, but it worked.  They all intermingled & became the story as a whole.

The ending is great as well.  Poor Oliver giving his heart away & then being left behind by his own choice because it was the right choice.  I can't wait to see what Schuyler gets into in Misguided Angel.

I rated this a 4star.  Awesome.
