Book Review #648 - Revelations (Blue Bloods #3) by Melissa de la Cruz


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.

My Rating: 3/5

The romance in this book does not appeal to me at all. I didn't feel any connection between Schuyler and Oliver, but I do love their friendship. 

As for Schuyler and Jack, I feel like Jack is severely underdeveloped considering the large part he continually plays in the series. 

The vampire lore in this series continues to develop with every book, but I still feel like I am still a very long way off completely grasping it all. 

Bliss is one of my favourite characters and so I loved the amount of development her character went through. There has always been a little mysteriousness surrounding her and so it was good to finally get some answers. 

The only negative thing I can say about this book, and in fact the series as a whole is that it is rather shallow. 

If there was less name dropping or brand dropping or the characters weren't such socialites then more emphasis would be placed on the actual plot and the story would move faster. 

The pacing of the book could have been better as I spent most of the book waiting for something to happen, only to have to wait until the last 20 or so pages. 

This book left me with so many unanswered questions that I will more than likely be picking up book 4 in the near future.
