Melissa De La Cruz’s The Van Alen Legacy part of The Blue Bloods series, is an absolutely astonishing series of books.  De la Cruz has changed the art of writing mystery books.  Bliss from the Blue bloods is in a battle with their arch enemies, the Silver Bloods.  The Silver Bloods have been watching Bliss day in and day out as she and the Blue Bloods try to solve the mysterious death of Lawrence.  On the other hand, love is in the air with these fabulous vampires.  Mimi, the cold blooded vampire, is not the type of person you want to really trust.  If you want a person you can trust, that person is…really there is no one that you can trust.  You really need to keep an eye on these vampires.  So who really killed Lawrence?

I really enjoyed this book.  This book was like a mix of the Hunger Games trilogy and a real mystery story.  This series is another good one that I recommend reading.  There’s a lot of suspense that lead up to the most shocking moments, like when Bliss gets dressed up as a waiter at a restaurant in France for a private event.  And who else is there? none other than the Silver Bloods.  Will Bliss be seen by them?  You’ll have to read the series to find out.  This is the fourth book in the series.  De La Cruz has done it once again with another breath taking book. I would recommend The Van Alen Legacy to people who enjoy love, mystery,and drama.
