Masquerade - Melissa De La Cruz

This is the second book in the Blue Bloods series.  
This installment begins with Schuyler and her best friend, Oliver Hazzard-Perry, going to Italy in search of her grandfather at her dying grandmother's request.  She hopes that finding him will help in their quest to defeat the Silver Bloods.  In the meantime, preparations are being made for the Four Hundred Ball in New York.  It is an exclusive extravaganza for Blue Bloods only.  Our favorite young socialite, Mimi Force, has decided to throw a masquerade ball after party.  However, with the Silver Bloods at large and Michael refusing they exist, are the young Blue Bloods as safe as they think? 

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.  In my opinion, it was much better than the first.  The plot moves faster and we learn more about the Silver Bloods.  We are introduced to a new character, Kingley, who raises questions about the villainous Mimi.  The love triangle (or square) between Jack, Mimi, Schuyler, and Oliver heats up.  Mimi's dislike for Schuyler increases causing her to make poor decisions that Jack has a hand in helping her out of.  It is completely obvious that Jack still likes Schuyler thought he tries to keep his distance for Mimi's sake.  I wish he had a bigger role in this book since he is my favorite character. --maybe in the next one.  
The only problem I have is with Bliss, is she a main character and what does she have to do with the overall story?  I'm sure that all of her dreams and blackouts serve a purpose in the big picture but I'm not sure what that is yet and her character is becoming an irritant. Overall, great book!
