Blue Bloods: Within New York City's most elite families, there lurks a secret society: its members are powerful, wealthy - and unhuman. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires. Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes to Prada and pearls. But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler's life changes dramatically: haunted by the death of a classmate, she craves raw meat and finds herself the romantic interest of Jack Force, the most popular boy in school. As one discovery leads to the next, Schuyler finds herself drawn into the elusive social circle of the Blue Bloods-and a mystery that threatens to destroy them all. Masquerade: Schuyler wants an explanation for the mysterious deaths of young vampires, and travels to Italy in the hope of finding the one man who can help - her grandfather. Meanwhile, back in New York, glamorous Blue Bloods prepare for the Four Hundred Ball - an exclusive gala hosted by the city's powerful undead but it's at the after-party masquerade that the real danger lurks. Hidden behind the masks is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampire's destiny. Revelations: Schuyler's heritage is under scrutiny: is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is the sinister Silver Blood coursing through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is stranded in the Force household, trapped with her nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force. But when an ancient center of power is threatened, the Blue Bloods need Schuyler on their side. Romance, glamour, and vampire lore collide in Melissa de la Cruz's best-selling Blue Bloods series. Includes books 1-3.

I would've enjoyed it if they only narrated one or two people. Since they narrated (quite a few.) On what happened to the lives of everyone, it was too squeezed in for the amount of pages the book had. I didn't even finish it.

At first, the story was slow, but it kept getting better as it went forward. I absolutely enjoyed the secrets about Silver Bloods and the romantic relationship drama in between. This was the first vampire story I've tried, and it was actually better than I thought it would be. Definitely a good vampire read if you're into that type of stuff.

I really liked this book and I thought that it was very good, so I've decided to read the whole series. I'm currently on the sixth book, Lost in Time, and I love it too. It's got a lot of great suspenseful parts that will stop you from ever wanting to put the book down. This book is great for anybody that likes these kind of supernatural things.

Liked it enough to start reading the entire series, so thats something. The mix between modern day life, real life history and mythology was nice.

A unique idea, decent plot and poor execution. The beginning, awkward and flat, might have been overlooked, but the neglect of pacing, dismal attempt at third person, and major plot points that were tossed in like asides made this book unbearable. While I'm curious where the series will go, the idea of embarking on another journey with this author, I find unpleasant.

this was my first book about vampires. i am not really a fan of twilight or the vampire diaries so i thought i should try this first. it was a very well written book. very descriptive and action packed. it was a little bithard to follow with it changing point of views but over all it was very good.

It has a very interesting mix of mythology and modern life. The characters are very relatable eventhough they are vampires. The struggles that they have are similar to that of a normal teenager. Also the plot at times does sound unrealistiv but then again what can you expect from a paranormal romance series. However unrealistic it is an enjoyable read and actually quite interesting. Also the author had a completely different take on a vampire. In most books a vampire is seen as an undead human going to any lengths to attain human blood but in this the "vampire" is actually a fallen angel who followed lucifer.

Okay, so at first I thought this was a boring book because nothing was happening. But afterwards the book got better and better. Overall it was an awesome book! Can't wait to read the next one... (=

Blue Bloods is an interesting combination of subjects, I like to think of it as vampires meet Gossip Girl. The vampire lore is different from other books and I really liked the author's take on how vampires become undead!
