"Revelations" is a Wild Ride filled with Twists and Turns!

Title: Revelations
Author: Melissa de la Cruz
Series: Blue Bloods, Book 3
From page one of the first book, Blue Bloods, my friends and I have all been hooked, completely submerged into Cruz's unique and exciting story, desperate for the next book so that we could find out what would happen next. And the third book in her captivating vampire series, Revelations, is no different!
From beginning to end, you will find yourself on the edge of your seat, hungry for more, always unsure of what will happen next. She'll leave you breathless and guessing until the very last page, when you'll find yourself begging for more, upset when you remember that it will be at least another year until the next one comes out. But then you'll be in a slightly better mood when you remember that she plans on continuing this story for at least 5 more books and in between the releases, you can reread *and reread, and reread, and..well, you get the point!* the books, memorizing them by heart and picking up on all the little details and hints that will surely come into play later on.. if they haven't already.
Melissa's Blue Blood novels are a must read for anyone, teenage or adult, vampire lover or not. It combines more than just fantasy, more than just romance. The story line is constantly twisting and turning, taking completely 360's at times, leaving you guessing until the very end. Someone that you believe is good at one point in the story can turn out to be completely different before the end of the book, and you never see it coming until it's too late. That's what I love so much about her writing-- she changes the story so many times, yet you are never lost or confused, and when you reach these curves in the story, you don't even hesitate or stop, but instead you are pulled right along with the characters, as if nothing had changed. Not too many authors can do this and still keep your full attention, but Cruz is definitely a master at it in my book!
4.5/5 STARS! All I can say is strap in, hold on, and prepare for one wicked ride, adrenaline rushed provided at no extra cost! Schyuler and her friends are sure to capture your attention until the very end, and more than once you'll find yourself asking 'Who is this person.. and can we really trust them?'. Only time *and Melissa!* will be able to answer this question! But be prepared: Melissa, like always, writes a terrific story, but she always ends on a HUGE cliff hanger, one that will have you about ready to yell and scream your frustration to the world and yet you still love the books and you'll be back for more, I promise. :D
