The Time Will Come #9

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company where we spotlight books that we've had for ages and really want to read but never get round to.
I have had Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz sitting on my shelf for absolutely ages, and never got around to picking it up. This is the first book in a series that some people seem to love and others hate. It first came to my attention as recommended to fans of Twilight after that craze a couple of years ago. I've just never been in the right mood to start it or always have newer books that I want to read first.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
When the Mayflower set sail in 1620, it carried on board the men and women who would shape America: Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins. But some among the Pilgrims were not pure of heart; they were not escaping religious persecution. Indeed, they were not even human. They were vampires.The vampires assimilated quickly into the New World. Rising to levels of enormous power, wealth, and influence, they were the celebrated blue bloods of American society.

The Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries. But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out. Schuyler Van Alen is a sophomore at a prestigious private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapated mansion. Schuyler is a loner...and happy that way. Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a popular girl from her school is found dead... drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn't know what to think, but she wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

Could those vampire legends really be true? Steeped in vampire lore and set against the glittery backdrop of New York City, Blue Bloods will be devoured by Melissa de la Cruz's legion fans.


  1. Urghh! That cover goes through me :(

    I've heard good things about Blue Bloods though :) Hope you enjoy it one day

  2. I so need to read this series one day too!

  3. Lol Kate! When I bought this book about 2 years ago it was only published in the US. It has since been picked up by ATOM in the UK and their cover is slightly better and more elegant looking, but still has the puncture wounds on the neck.
