About the Author

Melissa de la Cruz is the author of the best-selling Au Pairs novels for teens and the coauthor of the popular adult novel The Fashionista Files: Adventures in Four-Inch Heels and Faux Pas. She is also a frequent contributor to popular magazines like Glamour, Marie Claire, Teen Vogue, and Cosmopolitan. Melissa lives in Los Angeles with her husband.


Gr 9 Up-Fantasy, suspense, romance, fashion, and an interesting twist on vampire lore add up to a read that's difficult to put down. In this second book in the series, readers continue to follow Schuyler Van Alen on her quest for the truth about the deaths of other innocent young vampires and her own family heritage as she struggles to find her place among her peers. The mood flits back and forth between dark and light, weaving together the narcissistic, blithe life of a socialite with the angst of the outcast teen just beginning to make a space for herself. Readers are given the chance to explore the characters a little more deeply in this book. While some mysteries are solved, the suspenseful ending leaves more questions unanswered, and readers will be anxiously awaiting the next installment. This is a great recommendation for fans of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight (2005) and New Moon (2006, both Little Brown). Although simpler in style and slightly less gothic than those novels, De la Cruz's work fulfills a similar desire for girlie vampire adventure and romance.-Sharon Senser, Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

A tasy and alluring sequel - Kirkus

In Masquerade, the second title in the Blue Bloods series, Melissa de la Cruz's gang of super-rich, super-elitist vampire teens prowl once more. Having discovered that someone-or something-is hunting New York City's vampires, Schuyler (a newly initiated vampire herself) becomes dedicated to stopping the murders. A trip to Italy and a glamorous masquerade later, Schuyler is closer to the truth, but she is also closer to danger.
