Recent Reads, Series: The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz

The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods, #4)The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Background: This is the fourth book in the Blue Bloods series and picks up where the last one left off, Rio, the fire, Schuyler’s grandfather dead, Silver Bloods on the verge of attacking the remaining Blue Bloods. So here we are, one year after the accident in Rio and Schuyler and Oliver are on the run from the New York coven, Bliss is dealing with internal demons…actually internal Lucifer, and Mimi is running around doing various things to occupy herself.

Review: I was a little disappointed with this book in the Blue Bloods series, I feel like it was all just filler and the way that it is laid out for the reader is very confusing and a pain to follow. We rotate between the point of views of Schuyler, Bliss, and Mimi, so the second something interesting happens you are swept off to another person and what they are doing. There are a few plot changing events, however none really occur until the last 5 or so chapters, and I feel like all the buildup of the book was not necessary to get there. I really like this series, don’t get me wrong, it is entertaining and suspenseful, however this particular book just wasn’t… the ending is a great set up for another book, yes, but that was it.
