Blue Bloods: Misguided Angel by Melissa de la Cruz

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.

Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online…for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.

As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart.

I checked over my blog posts twice and found that I've never reviewed or mentioned that I read the Blue Bloods series. Well, I do read the series and I like it; Especially now since finishing Misguided Angel the latest in the series. I have to say MdlC is really good not that I thought she wasn't before it's just that...well...she shocked me ok. This book is by far the best in the series and even that position is tentative seeing as the action/drama to come would probably blow what happened in this book out of the  way. 

For those of you who either never heard of this series or if you have heard of the series but turn up your nose or other body parts at this series and you're currently refusing to read this book I suggest you go to your local library or bookstore and read this book. I have to warn though The first four books in this series are about how Schuyler loves Jack, and Jack loves Schuyler but they can't have each other and the impending threat of the Silver Bloods and who is can possibly be. It's a bit tedious but you shouldn't skip to the end and read this book first. Why? Because, it's always good to know the full story. Now that you guys finally know about this series this review ends here for you. So run along and start reading then you can finish reading this post.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

For those of you who are up-to-date with this series please continue on I have a few things I have to mention or I start talking to myself about them .

Mimi and Oliver: I'm loving that Melissa paired them up. They're like an odd couple. I know they aren't in love but they're friends and I like that. I'm also warming up to Mimi she isn't so one sided, coldhearted or clueless anymore. She's like Cordelia Chase from Buffy; she's seeing the bigger picture and is out to make a change. Does anyone else see were they headed? To Egypt. Where Schuyler is also headed. Eep?

Deming (spellcheck please): I love her and I want to be her. Since Bliss isn't in the picture anymore she is my new fave. Bliss is a reluctant second and Oliver is sadly third. everyone else is a jumbled mess of fourth, fifth, and so on. Back to Dee I'm calling her Dee because I'm not sure how her name is spelled. She is no nonsense and she didn't even flinch when she had to kill the guy she loves. That alone demands respect. And yeah I know she's probably gonna need therapy after this but that day hasn't reached us yet so let's just continue to dwell in her awesomeness. P.S. can't wait to meet her twin.

Jack and Schuyler: There isn't much to say about them. I'm actually glad because I was actually getting really bored of the series because of them so the less I read about them being together and in love the better.

Looking forward to the next book aren't you?
