Misguided Angel by Melissa de la Cruz

WARNING: Misguided Angel is the 5th book of the Blue Bloods series, as as such, this review might include some spoilers of previous book.

The Blue Bloods are under attack and no one is sure who is the one responsible for it.

In Europe, what once felt like protection is now feeling like confinement, and Schuyler and Jack find themselves watched by the European Coven and by the bounty hunters Mimi set on Jack. They have to find the Gates, but they might find something more.

In New York, Mimi is dealing with crisis after crisis, as the newly appointed Regent of the NY Coven. When a young blue blood girl goes missing, Mimi must find help in unexpected places to find answers, and in doing so starts to dealing with her own grief and rage.

New comer Deming, has come to New York from China, where she and her sister are Venators. In NY she's helping Mimi find whoever is targeting young blue bloods, and trying to uncover the reason why.

Their three stories mix in Misguided Angel. And I have to say it felt a bit like three novellas strung together, because the book focused on each girl at a time. It was different from the other books, and it did make the story go by faster, but I'm not sure how much I liked it.

Over the course of the books I've grown to like Mimi so much, I think she's my new favorite character, and I even like Oliver when she's with him (when he was all hung up on Schuyler, he was a bit pathetic), I like the way he makes Mimi see certain things. Schuyler, I'm starting to feel more and more like she should grow a spine, hers was the story line that got nowhere, in my opinion. And I liked Deming a lot. She's a good addition to the narrative voices.

Also, the epigraphs from Gabrielle point of view were awesome and so, so, so intriguing. I can't wait to find out more.

So, now I'm really looking forward to Blue Bloods 6, and to Bloody Valentine novella coming December 28th.

Favorite Quote: "Vampires don’t die,” Oliver pointed out. “They get recycled to suck for another day. Pun definitely intended. Or don’t you know your own history?”
