I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

Description from Lavish parties. Passionate meetings in the night. Bone-chilling murders. Midterms. The day-to-day life of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Bloods friends (and enemies) is never boring. But there’s oh-so-much more to know about these beautiful and powerful teens. Below the streets of Manhattan, within the walls of the Repository, exists a wealth of revealing information about the vampire elite that dates back before the Mayflower. In a series of short stories, journal entries, and never-before-seen letters, New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz gives her hungry fans the keys to the Repository and an even more in-depth look into the secret world of the Blue Bloods.

When I first read about this book I wasn’t too excited since I’m not a big fan of companion books to series I enjoy.  However, when I was offered the chance to review it I thought why not give it a try.  I’m am glad that I did.  It is filled with “files” on each of the main characters giving more background of which angel they are, their conduits and character observations.  There are also short stories that fill in gaps from the rest of the books so we get to see more of Dylan’s background, meetings between Jack and Schuyler and what happened between Kingsley and Mimi that brought them closer together.  The best part in my opinion was that we get to a glimpse of Cruz’s next series, Wolf Pact.   It is just tantalizing enough to leave you wanting to read more and I cannot wait for the first book to come out.  The book closes with the first two chapters of Misguided Angel just to wet your appetite for its release later this year.  I would highly recommend this series for anyone who is a fan of the Blue Bloods series.  It has me wanting to reread the entire series.
