Revelations[PDF / Epub] ★ Revelations Author Melissa de la Cruz – Schuyler Van Alen's blood legacy has just been called into uestion is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins As controversy swirls Schuyl Schuyler Van Alen's blood legacy has just been called into uestion 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 ForceWhen 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 freedomRomance glamour and vampire lore collide in the highly anticipated third book in best selling author Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series. Another YA series bites the dustI was never too much into Blue Bloods series but at least first two books were easy to read This third one took a lot of effort to finish It probably had a lot to do with the fact that the only thing I was attracted to in Cruz's books was the vampire lore If in the beginning the lore seemed fresh and original to me I am now fairly certain Cruz makes stuff up as she goes without big picture of her world in mind and this is why I am constantly confused There are supposedly 400 Blue Bloods in the entire world but some of them I understand were destroyed and consumed by Silver Bloods in Rome centuries ago so how many are actually left? Enough to populate half of the Duchesne school and those are only kids have whole families of them in Texas Italy Japan Brazil NYC etc then there are Venators and their teams Blue Bloods who refuse to reincarnate like Lawrence and lets don't forget 90% of the models are Blue Bloods too Where does it end? What are the limits of this world? The lore gets invented along the way just to explain some random events without ever being mentioned later on apparently now vamps can morph into animals and even fog but then why does Mimi have to follow her brotherbondmate in her black Bentley; vamps can cross states in minutes then why do Schyler and Jack have their meetings in Manhattan where everybody knows them and they don't even bother to fog themselves up or something; vampires live on blood but spend thousands of dollars on meals they apparently don't have any taste for; vampires can devour books within seconds and yet they fret over passing their school exams I know I must be nitpicking and there is some kind of convoluted explanation for each and every uestion of mine but I guess I simply don't care about the books any and not inspired to dig any deeper into the lore There is only so much interest I can have for fallen angels whose aspirations in their immortal lives are limited to parties pilates cellulite treatments and modeling POSSIBLE SPOILERSOk what can I say? I love this book D Seriously Melissa isn't afraid to put twists in her writing and kill her main characters And I wasn't that surprised when Lawrence basically said that it'll come down to a fight between Bliss and Schuyler And I was really sad when Schuyler broke it off with Jack I read that chapter on bluebloodsbookscom and it made me soo sad because Jack really does L O V E her And I hope that her and Jack find a way to make it work in other books Because Ollie won't last forever and Schuyler might After reading this I feel sorry for the people who stopped reading it after the first book because they stupidly compared it to Twilight because now they've missed the chance to read a very excellent book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Okay so Bliss just gained so much interest from me It will be awesome to read about her story and see where this crazy world is taking readers Jack “alter” behavior was disturbing but pretty entertaining to read in that last chapter I am excited to go ahead and move on to book four now My uick and simple overall really getting into this series and this one really moves fast Okay I just have to say that I was really bugged to find out that this is NOT the last book in the Blue Bloods series Apparently there are 9 books planned in total that was supposed to have been divided into 3 triologies But this first triology is actually going to have 4 books The next one and hopefully the end of this particular story is called The Van Alen Legacy and who knows when it's going to be released GrrrrOkay rant over Aside from that annoyance I really liked the story There is still a lot that I know I don't know and most likely that I don't know I don't know but there was also some really good and interesting new info that revealed I am intrigued by this author's interpretation of who vampires are fallen angels of Lucifer and why they are here to redeem themselves from fighting on the wrong side I am very interested to see how this story plays out There are still definitely lots of balls up in the air so to speak with this story DnfSo the first two books were okayish and I was really looking forward to this one because I noticed that the writing was improvingAnd then it just went downhill Like REALLY down the hill All the way to the bottomThe reason for that? I HATE Jack All I could think while reading this book was Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of waterJack fell down and broke his crownAnd I couldn't have laughed harder I’m having a really difficult time reviewing the third instalment to the Blue Bloods series Basically the shit hits the fucking fan in this book??? I honestly don’t know what else to say There are a LOT of things revealed about who was in league with the silver bloods that I was anticipating because while one thing is heavily hinted at it was still WILD to see how it was revealed and the others who were also includedto what degree We get some info on the blue bloods and things that are important to them ie twin thing bond the whole angel aspect of them continues to be explored This book was also just still a lot of fun because there was tons of relationship drama and I am trash for thatMy ONLY issue is that while the most important thing was revealed to ONE character and the reader it wasn't exposed to the rest of the characters yet so it was a bit disappointing because there is still SO much that the characters need to realize and get together It is definitely done to help create suspense with the next book which I understand BUT it falls kind of flatI want things to start getting taken care of but now I have to wait for all the characters to catch up on what I already knowsad It was a nice balance of drama and plot but it’s hard to discuss without ruining anything because honestly the things that happen in this one are really important to the entire series so I guess I’ll just leave it at that shrugs This book was utterly confusing to me Sometimes i didn't even know how or why someone was doing something I loved the first two in the series which i was suggested to read by my cousin It felt like gossip girl met vampires and I was slightly put down over various facts about how things were written which is a horrid side effect after reading Twilight because you get that notion that all vampire books are like that eek I know During the time i spent reading this book i grew and frustrated and complacent Often times I had to re read parts of the book to make sense of what was happening of course I feel the need to read the next in the series but only because i feel like I owe it to myself to give de la cruiz the benefit of the doubt and hope the next won't make my brain explode Best in the series by FAR I loved the previous two books but Revelations really puts Masuerade and Blue Bloods to shame The action finally starts happening in this book and they really make way with the Silver Blood war and finding out who's harbouring them I totally guessed that Bliss was Lucifer or being possessed by him D And her sister Jordan was the Watcher For a while I didn't know where all of Forsyth Llewellyn's lies were heading and what the hell was up with Dylan But it culminated in an amazingly epic battle and the release of Leviathan from his prison was AMAZING I dont even know how to express my excitement about this book and the next edition that should be released soon ^^ if you read Blue Bloods andor Masuerade and weren't too fussed do yourself a favour and read Revelations before making up your mind It's a completely different entity from books 1 and 2 and all the speculation on certain plot points really gets kicked into gear in this book That being said there are a lot of great emotions explored in this book with heartbreak and angst being a major theme Before reading about Trinity Force losing her vampire twin to a Silver Blood it had never occurred to me that some people had lost their soulmates to the war and therefore would never be bonded ever again I applaud the author on being able to make me empathise with the character despite the series being so heavily grounded in fantasy I was really uite saddened about the JackSchuylerOliver love triangle in this book whereas before it had just annoyed me although the situation was made significantly less depressing when Oliver's Repository file revealed him to not be as deeply in love with Schuyler as we'd predicted Now Im at a point where I dont want Schuyler to end up with Jack but also not really with Oliver he came across as a total dick on that file But enough fangirling I fucking LOVED this book and cant wait for the Van Alen Legacy I seriously have no idea why I keep on reading this series There is NOTHING literally NOTHING good about it The first book was okay but then the series went downhill In THIS installment Schuyler I still have no idea to pronounce her name Is it like Skyler? Schooler? ?????? is off doing stupid stuff The other characters are doing stuff and as the title says there are REVELATIONS To be honest that huge one at the end caught me off guard and also was a nice twist but the book just sucks oh look how funny I amI actually read this on the airplane on a flight from Seattle to California The book is short enough and I managed to finish it I wasn't even reading this whole timeUmm just ignore that digression of mine up there The book isn't fresh in my mind but I just remember feeling so BAD for the characters Not because I was sympathizing with them but because they were just acting sooo stupid Half of the book involves the upper class society getting drunk doing photoshoots and name dropping The other half is stupidness I can't pinpoint anything in particular that I couldn't stand since I flew through this book hahahaha I was reading this on an airplane and it was a couple days ago I couldn't bring myself to care about these angsty problems these teenagers go through I couldn't bring myself to care about anything I guess that was my main problem I didn't care about anything It's kind of like watching a boring show from afar You just can't bring yourself to care So I guess that's it Hopefully the next book will have this revelation in play I just can't stand this book which is about rich people problems than the actual problem with silver bloods and stuff And I am still nowhere closer in finding out what's up with Schuyler This kind of felt like a filler book Just like the last book Link After finishing the first two books I couldn’t wait for the public library to buy the rest of the books so I bought the four Blue Bloods books and read them in one go The series is just so catching Even though it’s a bit puzzling to see having a luxurious life seemingly being the only thing that most of the Blue Blood vampires care about in book 1 and 2 but things improve a lot in book 3 when things heat up and the evil doers rush in for the kill and the struggle for survival begins Even the supposedly vain mean spirited girl Mimi Force shows her true strength as she let out her war cry and slays her foes you just know that the game really does get started
