I just finished both books by Melissa de la Cruz tonight. I had been wanting to read them for awhile and thought it would be best to do it soon since the third in the series is being released this Tuesday. I will be at Target to get my copy next weekend (after I get paid).
I really enjoyed these books. It is a good mix of historical fiction, vampires and Gossip Girl. They are fun, fast-paced and are set amongst the backdrop of New York and Venice. Two places I have been. I love it when books are set in places I have visited or lived in.
Schuyler Van Alan is not popular at her New York Private School so is surprised to receive an invitation to a meeting of The Committee, an exclusive social group. At this meeting she discovers that in the coming years she will be experiencing the transformation from human to vampire. With this new revelation and a place amongst the social elite of her school (the Blue Bloods), Schuyler finds herself in the middle of a vampire murder mystery and discovers her family's history and secrets.
Masquerade reveals the murderer but ends with more questions about the Silver Bloods and the connections between the families and Schuyler's mother. I look forward to reading the new book to see what is revealed.
