What They Say:
They’re Young, Fabulous and Fanged. . .
Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But all too often the only thing that eludes their grasp is love.
So when two young lovers are kept a part by a centuries old decree, they’ll be forced to learn that, in matters of the heart, not even immortals have total control. . . or do they?
I started reading Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Bloods series DONKEYS ago. Like when they first came out, and I loved them; they were one of my first vampire series, and they were awesome, but I stopped reading after Keys to the Repository, so I’ve been slowly catching up again. Misguided Angel confused the living daylights out of me – what did Gabrielle do again? But Bloody Valentine was a sweet, short read.
Bloody Valentine was, in fact, three sweet, short reads. We got a story for Oliver, who is long overdue some love and it was very, very nice to meet Freya (who apparently is in the Witches of East End books, so yet ANOTHER de la Cruz series I must read). Then we got a story from Allega, Schuyler’s mom, and then the big one for Schuyler and Jack.
I really enjoyed all three reads, in fact, I kind of wished they were longer especially Oliver’s and Allegra’s because we know so little from either of them, and Oliver is most definitely one of my favourite characters. He’s really grown on me these past two books as I try to remember everything that’s occurred previously. I can’t wait to now get stuck into Lost In Time, and get closer to the finish of what has been a pretty impressive series.
