  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

  Kirkus Review

A juicy, voyeuristic peek into the lives of rich Manhattanites--who happen to be vampires. As shown by a diary in a handwritten font, vampires came to this country on the Mayflower. In contemporary Manhattan, the ensemble of protagonists attends an elite prep school. They're old souls, because vampires return in new shells (bodies) indefinitely; however, until mid-adolescence, they don't know it. Fifteen-year-old Schuyler, intelligent and vaguely Goth, has no idea she's a vampire. Neither does Bliss, newly arrived from Texas. Mimi and Jack, glamorously haughty twins with a suspicious bond, already know the scoop; the adults know too. The others are meant to learn slowly and keep strictly to the Code (for example, never suck so much blood that a human dies). Name-brand clothing and luxuries abound, but a mysterious danger lurks: Someone is killing the supposedly immortal. Schuyler's destiny is to bring the vampires--cast out of heaven with Lucifer--back into a state of grace, but her immediate goal for the next installment is to find the murderer. Delightfully trashy.
