A unique idea, decent plot and poor execution. The beginning, awkward and flat, might have been overlooked, but the neglect of pacing, dismal attempt at third person, and major plot points that were tossed in like asides made this book unbearable. While I'm curious where the series will go, the idea of embarking on another journey with this author, I find unpleasant.

this was my first book about vampires. i am not really a fan of twilight or the vampire diaries so i thought i should try this first. it was a very well written book. very descriptive and action packed. it was a little bithard to follow with it changing point of views but over all it was very good.

Amazing book! I really enjoyed it! it is an exiting and trilling book! One of my favorites! :)

It has a very interesting mix of mythology and modern life. The characters are very relatable eventhough they are vampires. The struggles that they have are similar to that of a normal teenager. Also the plot at times does sound unrealistiv but then again what can you expect from a paranormal romance series. However unrealistic it is an enjoyable read and actually quite interesting. Also the author had a completely different take on a vampire. In most books a vampire is seen as an undead human going to any lengths to attain human blood but in this the "vampire" is actually a fallen angel who followed lucifer.

Okay, so at first I thought this was a boring book because nothing was happening. But afterwards the book got better and better. Overall it was an awesome book! Can't wait to read the next one... (=

Blue Bloods is an interesting combination of subjects, I like to think of it as vampires meet Gossip Girl. The vampire lore is different from other books and I really liked the author's take on how vampires become undead!

I was skeptical at first as to whether I would enjoy this novel because it was my first vampire novel. But I enjoyed it. It was easy to get lost in their world. Can't wait to read more of this series.

After reading the first couple of chapters in the first book of this series, i thought i am not going to like this at all, it is sooo not my type of book. But i had taken out the first 4 books in the series from the library and that was all i currently had to read so i continued. I am sooooo glad i did, i loved the books. They are so different from other vampire books, but it was nice to not have to follow the same myths and rules that all other vampire books i have read followed. i am currently on a waiting list for misguided angel and cannot wait to read that one.

Thi book supplied a nice new twist on vampires and their heritage. It may be in other books, but none that I have read. History dates back to egyptian times, but concentrates on the Mayflower. Really cool. Mixes fiction and history well. I know it peeked my intrest in the whole croatan thing. I read it in 5 hours!
