Review: Vampires of Manhattan
Forget friendly reunions -- the Blue Bloods are back to face enemies once again.
It's been ten years since the gang defeated Lucifer. Lives were lost. But Oliver, who is now in charge of the vampire community, decides it's time to come out of the shadows and celebrate their victory with a ball. The werewolves are afraid this event will bring havoc, particularly when strange signs (like pentagrams and corpses) begin appearing all over the city. As the saying goes, "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." Could Lucifer still be out there?
In Vampires of Manhattan, De La Cruz had the hard task to please longtime fans of the series but also gain NA paranormal fans by managing to explain the past events without drowning the reader with too much information. Schuyler, although very present in the first book of the Blue Blood series, holds a small role, with the promise to come back as a main character in the sequel. But no worries. Tension, marital woes, steamy sex scenes and lavish gatherings fill the gaps of the mysterious plotline proving that De La Cruz's talent keeps growing with time.
Prepare for a cliffhanger ending!
