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!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
