Book Review: Revelations - Melissa de la Cruz

For the young, fabulous and fanged...
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. - From the back of the book.

You have to read the first two books before you read this one, if you have any hope of wrapping your head around the mythology. You MUST.

Schuyler is living with the Forces now, after the tragic death of her grandmother. Schuyler's not happy, having to wake up to Mimi every morning. Also, she now lives with Jack Force, the boy she loves more than life itself. But Jack's promised to Mimi, and it's all very complicated. Basically, Schuyler will never be able to be with Jack.

Throughout the novel, several questions were running through my head. Will Schuyler and Jack find a way to be together? Will being together ruin their relationship? For good? What will Mimi do, if that happened? Those are just a few. After finishing the book, some of those questions have been answered, but some, I was still asking. At the end of the book, I couldn't help but feel that I was starting the book again, as the epilogue makes you feel like your back at the beginning, the same feelings and thoughts that we had at the end of book 2, Masquerade.

Schuyler is no way near as likeable as she was in the first two books. She makes some silly decisions, which I really hope aren't because she's had a major personality change, but because she's confused, and doesn't know which way is right.

At the end of the book, I was frustrated and a little annoyed. It left confused, and eagerly awaiting the next book, The Van Alen Legacy, so I could finally get the answers to some questions I'd been asking for way too long. Although, the book itself, was really good. The action and drama was written perfectly, and I honestly couldn't put it down. So much happens in so little time, that you could never get bored, and you don't have to wait too long until you find out what happened to her, or what happened because of what he did. It left me on a huge cliff-hanger, and The Van Alen Legacy couldn't have come faster.

I give it 5 Feet!
