I've been a long-time fan of the Blue Bloods series and I love the concept of The New Blue Bloods Coven. The Vampires of Manhattan features my favorite characters from the Blue Bloods series, ten years after the last book, The Gates of Paradise. Many things have changed, yet some remain the same. It was so great "catching up" with mostly everyone, especially Mimi, Kingsley, and Oliver. Mimi, especially, had grown and changed so much. I really enjoyed her parts of the story, as well as Deming Chan's role. I always liked Deming and especially like that she will play a more prominent role in this series. She's a complex character and I look forward to her journey.
I have always loved the opulent, luxurious world of the Blue Bloods, and the fact that their entire existence is kept secret from humans just makes them all the more alluring. I liked that this series is more adult than the Blue Bloods series, which is fitting since the characters are older now.
Some of the things that were glossed over in the Blue Bloods series are really fleshed out in The Vampires of Manhattan. I have always wanted to know more about the Venators and enjoyed their inclusion in this book. Ara and Deming were two of my favorite characters, and I look forward to getting to know them even better in later books.
This book had a great, fast pace, which kept me reading long past the time I said I'd stop. I'm not a huge fan of a third-person narrative, yet de la Cruz uses it to perfection in her books, eliminating the need for superfluous dialogue and keeping the story moving quickly.
