Very excited about this book. I thought the first in the series, Blue Bloods, was an interesting take on vampire mythology. And then I read the second one and absolutely loved it. All the twists and turns of the larger mythology. All the interesting characters. The moody scenes. The descriptions of the ball. The book was amazing. I loved every page of it.
The second book took an interesting turn. I still love Schuyler and Oliver and I think I love them more. I still hate Mimi, but now I understand her more. And I'm pretty sure Bliss is now my favorite character in the series. I won't give away any of the spoilers, but I will say that the inclusion of a new character, Kingsley Martin, really throws the entire series. We now have another force to deal with. One that we don't have resolved at the end of the book, but one that I am sure will be back soon.
I definitely will be reading the third book, Revelations, next...
