Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.Bloody Valentine is the first set of short stories that I have read about the Blue Bloods but if Keys To The Repository is anything like this one I will have to check it out. Bloody Valentine really shed some light on the characters that I love from the Blue Bloods series.
Also, witness the bonding of Jack and Schuyler.
The first story is about Oliver and it also introduces Freya Beauchamp who will be in Melissa de la Cruz's new book, The Witches Of East End. I really liked finding out more about what happened to Oliver after Schuyler left and I like Oliver even more now. And I am dying to read The Witches Of East End!
The second story is set in the past and features Schuyler's mother, Allegra Van Alen, as a teen. It is about her love for the human, Bedix Chase, who I assume is Schuyler's father. This one left me with some questions though so it wasn't my favorite.
The last story is about Jack and Schuyler's bonding and I loved it. It takes place after the events in Misguided Angel and this story just reinforced my love of Jack and Schuyler together. I can't wait to see what is next for this pair.
Overall, Bloody Valentine is a great set of short stories to go along with the Blue Bloods series. Each story had me hooked and I read the whole book in a little over an hour. Sadly, now I have to wait for October to see what's next!
