Another YA series bites the dust...
I was never too much into "Blue Bloods" series, but at least first two books were easy to read. This third one took a lot of effort to finish. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that the only thing I was attracted to in Cruz's books was the vampire lore. If in the beginning the lore seemed fresh and original to me, I am now fairly certain Cruz makes stuff up as she goes, without big picture of her world in mind, and this is why I am constantly confused.
There are supposedly 400 Blue Bloods in the entire world, but some of them I understand were destroyed and consumed by Silver Bloods in Rome centuries ago, so how many are actually left? Enough to populate half of the Duchesne school (and those are only kids), have whole families of them in Texas, Italy, Japan, Brazil, NYC, etc., then there are Venators and their teams, Blue Bloods who refuse to reincarnate (like Lawrence) and lets don't forget, 90% of the models are Blue Bloods too. Where does it end? What are the limits of this world?
The lore gets invented along the way just to explain some random events without ever being mentioned later on: apparently now vamps can morph into animals and even fog, but then why does Mimi have to follow her brother/bondmate in her black Bentley; vamps can cross states in minutes, then why do Schyler and Jack have their meetings in Manhattan where everybody knows them and they don't even bother to fog themselves up or something; vampires live on blood, but spend thousands of dollars on meals they apparently don't have any taste for; vampires can devour books within seconds and yet they fret over passing their school exams.
I know, I must be nitpicking and there is some kind of convoluted explanation for each and every question of mine, but I guess I simply don't care about the books any more and not inspired to dig any deeper into the lore. There is only so much interest I can have for fallen angels whose aspirations in their immortal lives are limited to parties, pilates, cellulite treatments and modeling.
