The Blue Bloods are back in what is the most exciting book in the series thus far.  Schuyler is on the run with Oliver after the Conclave seems to think that she is responsible for Lawrence’s death in Rio.  Meanwhile, Mimi has taken up with the Venators and is trying to track down Jordan, Bliss’s sister.  A year has passed since the end of Revelations and things are very different in the Blue Blood’s world.  We learn about more foes and discover that Bliss is inhabited by her father, Lucifer.  It looks like she will not be able to survive and may even be made to kill her friends, but she keeps struggling.  Leviathan is on the loose and when he tries to kill Schuyler, Charles Force manages to stop him, but only at great loss to himself.  And in the end, we see the rise of Allegra from her coma and learn of her tasks for both her daughters.  I had heard that there are to be only five books in the series, but I can’t see how everything can be wrapped up in only one more book.  But maybe I’m wrong.

Meehl delivers a clever story about a SangFu, a boy who was turned into a vampire on accident.  Morning is your typical geeky teenager; he loves comic books and is a little shy around girls.  The only thing that really makes him stand apart is that he is a vampire.  And he has been chosen by The League to help bring the vampires out of the closet.  Soon he is turning into a tree on TV and trying to run away from mobs of screaming girls.  Brian soon realizes that he doesn’t really want the limelight, but it is too late to turn back.  Add in an evil Loner Vampire who wants to kill Morning, a love interest, and great writing and you have a winning combination.  I just hope he gets to become a firefighter like he always dreamed of being.

Mina’s parents are vampires which has never been too much of a big thing to her, except that she can’t really sneak out of the house at night what with the no sleeping thing and the super hearing.  But Mina is ok with that until one day her whole world is shattered when she finds out that she has been outed to the Vampire Council, her parents are in big trouble for hiding her for 16 years, and she has to decide in only a few months whether she wants to be a vampire or not.  Plus, she has to attend vampire education classes to help her decide.  Though she vacillates between turning and not, Mina’s story is really a coming of age story in which the heroine must decide what she wants with her life while juggling crushes, life changing decisions, secrets from friends, and school.  A thoroughly charming book that will enchant readers.

Eve Dallas is back and facing a puzzling murder.  An up and coming young entrepreneur is murdered in his secure home where he was seemingly alone.  He designs video games and was working on the newest one his company was creating when he died.  At first, Eve is stymied by the lack of another person, but she slowly puts the pieces together and comes up with a wild theory.  But it is almost too late when another colleague is almost killed.  As per usual, Eve pulls it all together in the end and locks up the bad guy.  We see a further development of Eve and Roarke with some rare fighting between the two.  Rather than detracting from their relationship, it only serves to add to the validity of their marriage.  If they were happy all the time it would not be believable.  I always enjoy these books, but I really got into the mystery on this one.  Well done!
