From the bestselling author of Blue Bloods and Witches of East End comes a new novel that explores the battle between good and evil, in the city that never sleeps...VAMPIRES OF MANHATTAN: The New Blue Bloods Coven
You'll devour Melissa de la Cruz's hot new adult novel, in which her Blue Bloods immortals have matured and are now exposed to new challenges, new loves, new threats, and a haute, hot hipster lifestyle.
It is ten years after the great War with Lucifer, and the Coven has rebuilt. Leader of the Fallen, Oliver Hazard-Perry, plans to celebrate this prosperity by throwing a 400 Year Ball-and all Blue Blood society will be there.
And then, all hell breaks loose....
Ten years after the war and the vanquishing of Lucifer, the New York Coven is riding high. Lead by former conduit Oliver Hazard-Perry and his human love, Finn, they are planning a grand event, the 400 Year Ball. But everything is not as it seems, humans are dying and Hell’s Bells are ringing. The war may be over, but the fight is just beginning.
I was very excited when I saw that Melissa de la Cruz was returning to the Blue Bloods series. I enjoyed the original YA series and was hoping the adult version would be just as good. At first I was unsure, as my beloved Oliver seemed like a giant entitled ass, but then the story started to flow and it was just as good as the original. I enjoyed the more adult themes in this version of the Blue Bloods, and I was happy Mimi played such a large role. Some long term fans may be sad as fan favorites Jack and Schuyler are not featured prominently, but a larger role is set up for the second instalment. The pacing was spot on and even though the chapters were narrated by no less than five characters it all meshed well. Even new readers to the series will quickly be able to catch-up as the ten year gap essentially resets the series. All in all this was a nice update to a series I thought I had said goodbye to.
