Did you love Twilight? Or is that a stupid question?
If you’re looking for another vampiric series to sink your teeth into, try the ‘Blue Bloods’ series by Melissa de la Cruz. The vampires in this series are young, powerful, rich and beautiful vampires of modern day New York. These ‘Blue Bloods’ have kept the secret of vampire existence for centuries – but all of that is about to change. The secret is seeping out at a prestigious private school, and Schuyler Van Alen finds herself tied to the heart of it.
Here’s a teaser from the first chapter of ‘Blue Bloods’:
Across the street, Schuyler saw a cab pull up to the curb, and a tall blond guy stepped out of it. Just as he emerged, another cab barreled down the street on the opposite side. It was swerving recklessly, and at first it looked like it would miss him, but at the last moment, the boy threw himself in its path and disappeared underneath its wheels. The taxicab never even stopped, just kept going as if nothing happened.
“Oh my God!” Schuyler screamed.
The guy had been hit—she was sure of it—he’d been run over—he was surely dead.
“Did you see that?” she asked, frantically looking around for Oliver, who seemed to have disappeared. Schuyler ran across the street, fully expecting to see a dead body, but the boy was standing right in front of her, counting the change in his wallet. He slammed the door shut and sent his taxi on its way. He was whole and unhurt.
“You should be dead,” she whispered.
“Excuse me?” he asked, a quizzical smile on his face.
Schuyler was a little taken aback—she recognized him from school. It was Jack Force. The famous Jack Force.
