The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods, Book 4) by Melissa De La Cruz (Contest Too!)

The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods, Book 4) by Melissa De La Cruz

384 pages Young Adult

Disney-Hyperion (October 6, 2009)

$9.93 (, 11/11/09)

I received this from Disney-Hyperion for review.

This is book 4 of the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz


  • I like Mimi in this one. She does a cool thing by helping Kingsley track down the Silver Bloods. She kinda rocked in that position. Until the end of the book.
  • Schuyler’s love triangle gets messy but resolved.
  • Oliver. Oh, how I <3 Oliver. He could be my familiar any day.
  • Silver Bloods. Yup, they are tricky things. They made this book interesting.
  • Passion. There are some episodes of overbearing hormones. Had my toes curling. Hmmm, Jack. ;)
  • Intense scenes. There were a few OMG! moments. Great action scenes.



  • The book ended with a new found hatred for Mimi. I could strangle her. I only hope she decides otherwise.
  • Death. More death! Melissa is cruel to her readers!



This addition was a bit slower for me. I enjoyed it but it seemed kinda drawn out or something. The ending was terrible, meaning I must read the next book because it has to resolve its self as a happy ending. Won’t it? :(


SPOILER ALERT! Don't watch this trailer if you haven't read this series....holy spoilers!

  1. I LOVE the set up of your review. :) and that is the coolest book trailer I've ever seen, though I couldn't read half of what it said, but that ok because it had awesome graphics.

  2. I love the trailer and the book. Great review like always. :)

  3. I was a little confused with Mimi's new hatred for Jack. She told Kingsley (I think that was his name) that she was just about to leave Jack for him! So why is she mad?

  4. Exactly Tina. She just needs to let it go. Let Jack be happy. The whole "forever" thing needs to be forgotten. It's the present not the past.

  5. Cool setup for entering the giveaway!!

    My daughter and I LOVE this series! So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the both of us. ;-)

    Also, for all you other fans...did you know that Melissa De La Cruz has a short story in the book Eternal Kiss that is a side story to this series?

    Thanks for a great giveaway!
