  Booklist Review

The second book in the Blue Bloods series moves its high-society teen vampires forward in their mission to root out Silver Blood demons. Details of vampire life come clearer here, including the erotic (but never graphic) Sacred Kiss performed between vampires and their human familiars. Increasingly prominent dark-fantasy strands may alienate some members of de la Cruz's fan base, even as they recognize chick-lit staples like fashion references and alcohol-steeped party culture. Even so, the author's more omniverous readers, and many newcomers, will find this an entertaining installment that whets appetites for more.--Mattson, Jennifer Copyright 2007 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Sexy vampires in Coco Chanel glam up Manhattan in the continuing web of intrigue. These wealthy teens and parents are Blue Bloods, immortal vampires who've been reincarnated continually since the fall of Lucifer. Accustomed to running society in the guise of upper-crust humans, Blue Bloods now fear Silver Bloods, who have returned to threaten soul-sucking corruption and murder. Themes range from good vs. evil, to skinny models and haute couture, to eternal bonds of love and dizzying teenage lust (conflated with the urge to suck blood, natch, which is necessary for survival). Which powerful Blue Blood family is harboring a Silver Blood? Who's corrupt, and who's lying? Several unknown motivations are reserved for the next installment, and de la Cruz sometimes strains the plot, leaning soapwards near the end; but overall, a tasty and alluring sequel for the vampire-sex-and-fashion set.
