From the bestselling author of Blue Bloods and Witches of East End comes a new novel that explores the battle between good and evil, in the city that never sleeps...VAMPIRES OF MANHATTAN: The New Blue Bloods Coven
You'll devour Melissa de la Cruz's hot new adult novel, in which her Blue Bloods immortals have matured and are now exposed to new challenges, new loves, new threats, and a haute, hot hipster lifestyle.
It is ten years after the great War with Lucifer, and the Coven has rebuilt. Leader of the Fallen, Oliver Hazard-Perry, plans to celebrate this prosperity by throwing a 400 Year Ball-and all Blue Blood society will be there.
And then, all hell breaks loose....
De la Cruz brings the characters from her Blue Bloods YA books into a new adult series with this bland opener, which combines a bare-bones plot with lots of sex. The characters and the core concept that vampires are actually angels on earth, fighting against the forces of Lucifer transition well and engage new readers easily enough, but the story and writing are still immature. Ten years after defeating Lucifer, Oliver is the leader of his vampire coven. With his human lover, Finn, he plans to reinstitute the tradition of the Four Hundred Year Ball. Ara, a vampiric police officer, is investigating a suspicious murder. And Mimi has left her cushy life in Hell with her husband, Kingsley, to work in an art gallery. As the threads converge, de la Cruz wastes all the tension on flashbacks that only highlight how obvious the betrayers and villains are. There's nothing especially awful about this novel, but there's nothing especially great either.
