SCHUYLER VAN ALEN'S blood legacy has just been called into question: is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.
When an ancient place of power is threatened in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high, the battle is bloody; and through it all Schuyler is torn between duty and passion, love and freedom.
Romance, glamour, and vampire lore collide in the highly anticipated third book in best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Blood series.
This time I am really satisfied with the cover. It portrays the exact theme that runs through the book. Maybe you're wondering who the girl on the cover is, but you'll have to wonder until the end, when it is finally revealed(hence the title Revelations). But, I'm not giving the cover five stars because I like exotic and unique covers, and this one lacked a little. Cover rating 4/5
One word to describe this book. Bittersweet. Another way would be to call it a love-hate book, at least for me. There wasn't one moment when I did not hate every single character. Then I loved theme. And the cycle continued, it was a complete roller coaster. And I loved it!
Schuyler and Jack's affair made me think of Schuyler as weak. If you know you can't have the guy, why keep trying in vain? Jack frustrated me so much. Pick a girl! Don't just play with Schuyler! First Jack is completely romantic and sweet with Schuyler(which I love), and then he's the same with Mimi(which I hate). And the end!
The weak point for Schuyler was definitely her affair. But at the end, I admired her strength and quick decisions. She did not show weakness at the end, which is the kind of heroine I like.
Overall, this was an amazing ride that I would recommend to all vampire fans. And watch Bliss, because you will find she is not what is expected(hint).
