The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz

Title: The Van Alen Legacy

Author: Melissa De La Cruz

Series: Book 4, Blue Bloods

Published: New York : Disney/Hyperion Books, 2009

Snippet: "No longer a vampire-but what did that mean? Did it mean she was just human?"

Summary: Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods--an ancient group of vampires--now find themselves in an epic battle for survival following the stunning revelation of a young socialite's true identity and the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods.

Review: I quite enjoyed reading The Van Alen Legacy. Like all of the Blue Bloods books it was definitely very good.

While the last three books in the Blue Bloods series have just left more and more questions unanswered I was happy to see that some of these questions were answered.

As for the romance element in here. There was one thing that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and I have to say that the end result made me quite happy. I just hope that this time it lasts.

I also loved the story. I loved finding out more about the history of the Blue Bloods and more about who was who.

There was one surprise that I had already had a vague idea about but it was pretty cool.

The ending finished the book nicely and I cannot wait to read the next book because things are definitely starting to get very very interesting. Definitely check this series out.


  1. I agree this book was pretty good. I loved the romance in this one. For some reason I thought it was the final book so near the end I kept getting more confused, but I am excited for the next one.

  2. So far, this is my favorite book in the series! :)
