With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver's brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged.


The Van Alen Legacy is the fourth book in the Blue Bloods series and it was fantastic. While it was kind of hard to get in to at first, you get so much information out of it that I felt less as lost in this one. The continuation takes place a year after the last one, since Schuyler has gone into hiding and she looks for guidance in France.

Nothing is really as it seems in this book, and when you go from three different perspectives it's hard to know what to really believe and if this is really going on. More than ever, I felt sorry for Bliss and her predicament. The ending wasn't the best, but it makes for a great plot twist to start out with in the next book.

Now just to wait for the next one...
