Bloody Valentine Review

Pub. Date: December 2010
Publisher: Hyperion Books for Children
Format: Hardcover , 160pp
Age Range: Young Adult
Series: Blue Bloods Series , #6
ISBN-13: 9781423134497
ISBN: 1423134494
Rating: B
Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.


Bloody Valentine is the sixth installment of Melissa De La Cruz's Blue Bloods Series. Although this book is shorter then the rest in the series thus far,it is still filled with De La Cruz's creative take on vampires. While I felt that she may have took focus off Jack and Skyler's bonding and placed it into other characters stories. When it came time to focus on Jack and Skyler she allows the reader to reconnect to Skyler almost instantly while she is in the mist of her journey to become Jack's bride.

Like the other books in this series history is present through out it. From the history of Skyler and Oliver's relationship that seems to haunting him. To learning more about Allegra. In the end there this book was well balanced with the history, action and love.

negatives: I feel that it could have been a bit longer and there could have been a bit more focus on the bonding.

Positives: Learning more about Allegra, action love and history.

Bryn becomes obsessed with getting her questions answered, and Chase is the only one who can provide the information she needs.
But in her drive to find the truth, will Bryn push too far beyond the constraints of the pack, forcing her to leave behind her friends, her family, and the identity that she's shaped?
