Summary
For this elite group of teenagers, New York is all about parties, fashion...AND BLOOD.

Schuyler Van Alen is a loner, and happy that way. But when she turns fifteen, her life dramatically changes. A mosaic of blue veins appears on her arms, and she begins to have memories of another time and place. When a classmate is found dead at a night club, the mystery deepens. Most surprising of all, Jack Force, the hottest boy in school, starts showing a sudden interest in her.

Schuyler wants answers, but is she prepared to learn the truth...especially when she discovers her part in it?

The sexy and secretive world of the Blue Bloods comes to life in this stunning graphic novel adaptation of Book One in Melissa de la Cruz's internationally best-selling series.

Booklist Review: "A girl is dead, a demon may or may not be on the loose, and 15-year-old Schuyler Van Alen has just discovered blue veins on her arms. Schuyler has an illustrious last name and attends an even more illustrious private school, but she's never felt comfortable in that world of glitz, glamour, and gold-plated everything. The girl who died was Schuyler's schoolmate. And Jack Force, one of the popular Force twins, who rule her school, has developed a sudden, dizzying interest in Schuyler. Strange happenings are afoot in wealthy, modern Manhattan. Venditti and Urusov have done an excellent job of adapting the first novel in de la Cruz's complicated and much-beloved Blue Bloods series into a graphic novel. Urusov's stylish and stylized artwork showcases the gossip-girl-meets-vampires theme of the original book and perfectly complements Venditti's action-oriented pacing and plot-propelling dialogue.--Mack, Candice Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "De la Cruz combines American history, vampires and a crew of rich New York City kids, delivering a page-turning debut to her new series, sure to appeal to fans of her Au Pairs titles. When 15-year-olds Schuyler and Bliss find out that they are vampires, as are many of the city's elite, they learn what's behind some of their weird symptoms (such as Schuyler's blue veins, which form "an intricate pattern, visible under the skin's surface," or Bliss's cravings for raw meat), and that "nothing could kill vampires." But something is hunting them, even killing some, and Schuyler grows more determined to stop it, even as the Conclave, the vampire leaders, attempts to cover it up. Readers will recognize the character types here: Schuyler the outcast, Bliss the pretty new girl and Mimi the popular queen bee (who nurses a somewhat incestuous relationship with her equally gorgeous brother). Not many question are answered along the way, even for the start of a series. Still, it's hard to resist a book that combines expensive clothes, modeling jobs, blood-sucking and even diary entries from a Mayflower vampire. De la Cruz plants enough seeds (e.g., What does it mean that Schuyler's father is human? Will her mother come out of her coma? Who are the Silver Bloods, and is one of them hiding amongst the vampires?) to give readers a stake in what happens next. Ages 12-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
