These are two books in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz. I read the first book, Blue Bloods, over the Christmas break. I was worried that this would be another knock off of some of the other vampire novels written in the past- with no original ideas or plot.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Melissa de la Cruz has in fact found a niche all her own. So far I have found the plot predictable at times but not completely- so therefore there are some portions that keep me wondering- and very interested in the story.
If you are a fan of vampire fiction- you will really enjoy this series. They are fast reads and very enjoyable.
