Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog! I invite you to enter into the splendiferous world of the library where I will share my knowledge and love of books I have read, as well as send out praise to the authors of these treasures. Most of the books reviewed on my site will be Teen or YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, though every now and then I'll throw in an adult book just to shake things up.

Misguided Angel by Melissa De La Cruz

From GoodReads: 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 must start out by saying Melissa De La Cruz, you my dear, are a TEASE!!!!
This book was just a small taste of things to come.  You get to see only bits and pieces of the big picture, ending in yet another of Melissa's, now famous, clif-hangers.  I loved it!  The story jumps from Jack and Schuyler to Mimi and Oliver, to scenes from past lives, to a new character (I won't tell you about her, you'll have to read to find out more!).  As Misguided Angel bounces from storyline to storyline you pick up new pieces to the puzzle, and just when you think you will get some answers, the book is done! So once again, Melissa has hooked me for another book, and, as only Melissa De La Cruz can,  has me counting the days until the next Blue Bloods novel.
