Within New York City’s most elite families, there lurks a secret society of celebrated Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are the powerful and the wealthy—and in fact, they are not human. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires.
Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at Duchesne, her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapidated mansion. Schuyler is a loner—and happy that way.
But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler’s life changes dramatically. She has a mosaic of blue veins on her arms, and craves raw meat. The death of a popular girl from Duchesne is surrounded by a mystery that haunts her. And strangest off all, Jack Force, the most popular boy in school, is showing a sudden interest in her.
Schuyler wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?
I really enjoyed reading this book! I think is was a different kind of vampire story. New York is a great setting for the book and gives it a more realistic feel. However. at times the descriptions of what each character is wearing and the designer got a little annoying. It took a while to set up the story but it was worth it in the end. It picked up almost halfway through the book ;I liked the back-story about the Blue Bloods and how they came about. Schuyler was a great main character. She isn't the richest and she doesn't fit in but that's what makes her relate-able. There was just enough drama and mystery to keep the reader interested throughout. The story was great and executed well. The end leaves you with a lot of unanswered questions and I can't wait to pick up the next book in this series.
