Review: Revelations by Melissa de la Cruz

Publisher's Summary:

Have you ever wondered what secrets lurk behind the closed doors of New York City’s wealthiest families? They're powerful, they're famous... they're undead.

Schuyler Van Alen’s blood legacy has just been called into question - is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.

When one of the Gates of Hell is breached by Silver Bloods in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods will need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high; the battle is bloody; and through it all, Carnavale rages on. And in the end, one vampire’s secret identity will be exposed in a revelation that shocks everyone.

To be honest, I liked the book a lot, but not much happened. It's like it was a filler novel for something much bigger. I love the vampire lore in Cruz's books, it is so inventive and unlike the rest, but I wish either her books where longer, or she wrote them faster. At least however, the next one appears to be written. Her characters are interesting and likable, albite strange. However, for those who are a little freaked out about almost incest, they may not be the books for you. I mean, the characters really aren't related but.....they are. It's too confusing to post in a blog but, you should pick up this book if you enjoyed the first 2, it's a great, east read.
