Schuyler Van Alen, scholarship student at the posh and selective Deschune school, has always had a cool head on her, even when sneered at because of her thrift-store clothing when the norm is something from 5th Avenue. Her cool head, however, is slowly developing something more for one of the richest kids in Manhattan, New York — Jack Force.
And whaddya know – he tries to throw himself under a cab right before the first time Schuyler talks to him. …..Ooooohhhhkay…..turns out he’s an invincible vampire. And so is Schuyler. And her new best friend, Bliss from Texas.
It turns out that Schuyler’s blood is kinda out to get her — she’s a vampire. Well, only half, but that makes no difference to the something that’s stalking and killing off vampires, ‘cuz, you know, the Committee’s really been lying to them about their complete immortality…
Blue Bloods is a different take on vampires, and it’s very artistic in the way that it’s put together. de la Cruz has a way of stringing along the scenes that require your full attention (all through the night! But it was worth it. :3)
Then he does. And starts teaching her how to use her vampire blood. The downfall of all this blood exercise? Her human blood cells fight back and leaves her seriously weakened. Her grandfather believes that the only way for her to survive is to perform the Kiss to create a human familiar that she can feed off of.
Oliver tries to help her, but then again he’s only a human Conduit.
There’s a third one coming out in this series, Retribution, I think. I’m getting kind of antsy… :3
