Meanwhile, back in New York, preparations are feverishly underway for the famous Four Hundred Ball, an exclusive gala hosted by the city’s wealthy, powerful, and unhuman—a true Blue Blood affair. But it’s at the after-party masquerade that the true danger lurks. Hidden behind the masks is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampire’s destiny.
Rich with glamour, attitude, and vampire lore, this second installment in the Blue Bloods saga will leave readers thirsty for more.
So have you read Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz? If so, this is the 2nd in the series & one I find more enjoyable. If you haven’t yet read the first book, please do if you want to avoid some slight spoilers!
Venturing back into Manhattan with some of my favorite characters was a blast & full of lots of information I found the first novel lacked. So much more is explained in Masquerade about the vampires, conduits, & silver bloods. I personally enjoy Mimi’s sinfully rude attitude & I find myself loving to hate her. Personally, Jack isn’t my type (I have the bad boy disease, sorry) but this also opens up some Oliver options. Venice certainly shakes things up.
The ball itself is something that sounds amazing to plan but I wish more had happened at the event. The Masquerade was definitely where the party was at! I love Bliss but she is still so naive! I can’t wait to see her develop into a stronger character, hopefully in book 3. & Dylan being gone is sad & all but we really didn’t get a chance to know or like him did we? I mean, did she? Must be some past life pull there that hans’t translated to me as a reader!
Also, I’m not crazy about the whole twin action. I mean…what? & I get the whole preconceived thing but still, every time think about it I get a bit uneasy. Just one more reason for me not to root for the Force twins.

Hope you guys had a great Labor Day Weekend!!! We splurged last week for our “First Date Anniversary” so I’m trying to work from our stock foods. We’re planning a huge (& pricey!) restock soon to get the pantry all set up. Then the fun can really start! I’ll be working on cleaning out the kitchen & reorganizing along with my usual blogging on Stephanie Louise- All Things Beautiful so I’m focusing on some easy & quick recipes! Let me know what you think!
