Blue Bloods Blue Bloods 1 by Melissa de la Cru z CONTENTS.

Secretly, she has a crush on Jack Force, the most popular and handsome guy in Duchesne, but also the brother of the "It" girl, Mimi Force, as charming as her brother. With Mimi always there, as fierceful as a tigress, Schuyler prefered keeping her distance from him. But after a tragic incident, secrets tend to be revealed, and when Schuyler and Bliss turn fifteen, their lives change.

When Schuyler and Bliss attend their first meeting, they learn that they are vampires, fallen angels known as Blue Bloods. Born again and again, cursed to walk the Earth in a series of different lives, or "Cycles", the Blue Bloods are hiding amongst the richest families of the world. But in their current Cycle, their continued existence as Blue Bloods is threatened by some unknown enemy Or so the Elders tell.

Some vampires choose not to follow the cycle of rebirth and effectively live forever but whether a re-cycled vampire or an immortal, all of these vampires drink blood. Some factual elements have been mixed into the vampire mythology too - such as the voyage of the Mayflower and the story of the lost colony of Roanoke. This is an inspired use of what is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries of early American history.

There is an air of dark mystery and untold secrets around the story and this intrigue is perhaps the main thing that keeps the story driving forward.

The plot slowly unravels a threat to the Blue Bloods existence as well as a surprising secret about Schuyler - keeping readers interested and motivated to the end of the story. Even though the characters in Blue Bloods are only barely engaging, the plot and vampire mythology carry the story well enough to make this a very readable book. There are also enough loose ends to make readers want to follow up this story with the next instalment Masquerade in this series. She travels with the Lennox twins, and with Kingsley Martin, whom she begins to discover she has a deeper connection with than previously thought.

When their journey takes them back to Rio, they finally discover Jordan, except they find that her body has been abandoned and that Sophia has taken on a new living form. She returns to New York City for her senior year, and despite her feelings for Kingsley, she continues to make sure that her imminent bonding ritual with Jack draws ever near.

After returning home, Schuyler learns that her mother, Allegra, has finally awoken, and she rushes to the hospital to see her. When Allegra informs her daughter of The Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler must inform the seven gatekeepers that Lucifer and Leviathan are plotting to open the Gates of Hell so they may be released onto Earth. Allegra claims that she now must find Charles Force, who was last seen battling Leviathan in an underground labyrinth.

Bliss's life has undoubtedly changed—possibly for the worse. She has learned the stunning secret of her origin. Before the ceremony, she discovers that a small piece of glass hidden in her bouquet is the sword of Michael, the same sword that Jordan had used in her attempt to stab her. The bonding ceremony, however, goes terribly wrong, and Lucifer himself appears. Realizing that the only way to rid herself of her, father, Lucifer himself, Bliss takes the piece of glass which is Michael's sword and stabs herself in the heart.

His presence forces Jack, Schuyler, Mimi, and Kingsley into the glom: an alternative netherworld in the universe that vampires can access. The only one that does not make it out of the glom is Kingsley, who becomes trapped in the underworld.

Isabella of Orleans has offered them protection as they pursue their mission, but they quickly realize that Isabella's offer is more like imprisonment than protection, and they devise a plan to escape and continue their quest to locate the Gates of Hell.

They find themselves in danger and on the run from Isabella's minions, soon discovering that they are under surveillance by the European Conclave. Mimi Force has been elected as the new Regent of the crumbling Coven, which, thanks to an internet video release of the teen vampires at a party, is at risk of being exposed to the Red Bloods humans.

She is heartbroken over losing Kingsley, who is trapped in Hell, and faces immense rage and embarrassment over Jack's decision to forsake their bond to be with the half-blood, Schuyler Van Alen.

Blue Bloods

Meanwhile, she has begun working with Oliver—an unlikely situation due to their rocky relationship—and the Lennox twins in order to find a missing teenage vampire who has been kidnapped and threatened with being burned alive.

The Conclave covers up the secrets of the video by making the public believe that it is a new movie trailer, and assign certain members to work on production. This provides a cover-up, but does not fix the real problem at hand—someone knows far too much about them, and has every intention of using it against them. Help with the kidnapping soon comes from a Chinese Venator named Deming Chen, who must solve the mystery of the kidnapping before one of their own is destroyed.

She is quickly thrown into untangling a web of lies and secrets regarding the kidnapping, facing an unforeseen twist when she thought she had all the answers, yet ultimately finding who is responsible for threatening their world, and why. Mimi learns that Jack has been found by the Venators that she had sent to look for him, but he refuses to turn himself in. While she is pleased that her brother is ready to face his fate, she is also planning to travel to Hell to rescue Kingsley, with Oliver by her side.

Jack and Schuyler have traveled to Egypt in an attempt to find a solution to the impending blood trial, the confrontation between Jack and Mimi in which only one can survive. The two of them search Alexandria for one of the gates along with its gatekeeper, Catherine of Siena. They hope to find a way to keep Jack from facing Mimi's wrath, and to save the Blue Bloods.


After they are kidnapped by none other than Deming Chen and the Lennox twins, Sam and Ted, they learn that Red Blood women are being taken in order to birth 'Nephilim' by the Silver Bloods to be used in Lucifer's fight to regain access back into Heaven. Mimi still has every intention of making Jack pay for breaking their bond, but she first wants to rescue Kingsley Martin. She and Oliver go on a mission to travel to Hell to find him, but Mimi knows that she has to make a trade—a soul for a soul—if she wants to free her true love, and secretly takes advantage of Oliver's presence.

When they find Kingsley, she is shocked to find that he appears to be content living in Hell and appears to have lost all interest in her, much to her dismay. It is only when Kingsley learns of Mimi's true reason for traveling to Hell, that he realizes the misunderstanding and reveals his true feelings to her.

Allegra Van Alen has developed deep feelings for Ben, but forces herself to attempt to stay away from him before it progresses too far. She knows that she is the true bondmate of Charles Van Alen, and the two of them are meant to be together.

Blue Bloods (Book)

Charles knows what is happening between the two of them and tries to keep Allegra on the right path and protect her from making a dire mistake, but she cannot help but be drawn to Ben. Even though she is plagued with visions of her lying unconscious in a hospital bed as a result of her temptations, she cannot turn her back on love.

Jack finally confronts Mimi to face his fate, but he has learned what they must do in order to permanently break their bond so neither of them will have to perish, and they ultimately make a very dark decision to once again give their loyalty to Lucifer.

Not every vampire has a bond with another.

Their fangs grow in, their body switches from needing food to needing human blood, and the memories of their past lives begin to return. The process usually has an intense effect on the vampire, making them weak and sick. Blood Trial How serious offenses against The Code are resolved. It requires the blood of the offending party to be consumed in order to tell truth from lie.Adventures in Four-inch heels and Faux-Pas.

And, of course there is a modeling casting call at her school that all of the girls go to but they pick Schuyler to be the next supermodel as she just happens to be walking by because she's soooooooo beautiful.
