|About the Book|
Blue Bloods: Within New York Citys most elite families, there lurks a secret society: its members are powerful, wealthy - and unhuman. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires. Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes to Prada and pearls. But when she turns fifteen, Schuylers life changes dramatically: haunted by the death of a classmate, she craves raw meat and finds herself the romantic interest of Jack Force, the most popular boy in school. As one discovery leads to the next, Schuyler finds herself drawn into the elusive social circle of the Blue Bloods—and a mystery that threatens to destroy them all. Masquerade: Schuyler wants an explanation for the mysterious deaths of young vampires, and travels to Italy in the hope of finding the one man who can help - her grandfather. Meanwhile, back in New York, glamorous Blue Bloods prepare for the Four Hundred Ball - an exclusive gala hosted by the citys powerful undead but its at the after-party masquerade that the real danger lurks. Hidden behind the masks is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampires destiny. Revelations: Schuylers heritage is under scrutiny: is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is the sinister Silver Blood coursing through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is stranded in the Force household, trapped with her nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force. But when an ancient center of power is threatened, the Blue Bloods need Schuyler on their side. Romance, glamour, and vampire lore collide in Melissa de la Cruzs best-selling Blue Bloods series.
