SpoilersThis is the last book in a series I thought would never end I have a hard time letting go of any series even when they are rubbish, so now that this is over I feel like an ugly book shaped weight has been lifted of my delicate little shoulders Hmm where to start with this no doubt long, ranty, bitchy review Okay, well the Blue Bloods series is all about teenage vampires that were once angels who rebelled against god or something, anyway as punishment they are reincarnated over and over a [...]

Final Post CONTAINS SPOILERS I just want to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the Blue Bloods series Lost in Time s ending had left me avid desperate for , of everyone especially Abaddon Araquiel The SIXTEEN month wait for the final book s release had me anticipating an amazing string of events leading up to the final battle and all loose ends tied I CAN say this book managed to tie everything together perfectly into a neat little bow Unfortunately, however, I cannot say this book met my hig [...]
sighs What can I say I m sorely disappointed However, by the time I got to two of the previous books in this series, Misguided Angel and Lost In Time, I was kind of already half expecting the disappointment for the final book Now, I ll gladly take those two books over this one anyday Stubbornly, I held onto some sense of false hope until the bitter end that the author would redeem the story and everything would make sense by it s conclusion.Um, wrong shakes head I honestly didn t think it could [...]
BESTRIES.EVER I m dying 2013 Why is this than a year away are they crazy This needs to be released next year at the most Horrible marketing, I shall complain How can book 5, 5.5, and 6 all be released in the same year but the last book will be out in 2 years Edit Yay we have a cover Buuut i have to say I m so do about it And what s up with her hair
Oh man, oh man, oh man This book was a mess It was a complete disaster, it was sloppy, and in my completely honest opinion it lacked everything a good book should offer.There was little to no character development The plot felt like it didn t exist Events took place in ways that felt entirely too convenient The writing was awkward If you didn t read the novellas in between over 1 3 of this book would have made NO SENSE And over half of this was completely pointless Basically to sum it up, this b [...]

The Blue Bloods series had a strong premise and a great beginning, but it foundered for awhile The series always followed several narrators in each novel, but there were always some plotlines that didn t have the urgency or sizzle of the others Even in GATES OF PARADISE, Schuyler Van Alen goes on a side adventure that involves hanging out at a college party I mean, it s not like she should be worried about leading the charge against Lucifer and preventing him from invading Heaven or anything.Tha [...]
I don t know which is depressing The fact that it s the last book in the series or that it s not expected to release until January of 2013 I cannot wait that long.Edit 20 June 13I hadn t realized this came out It s been a while since I read this series, and honestly I don t really know if I want to read it any
EDIT Spoilers ahoy I actually enjoyed this now that i think about it I was leery about the whole battle, and even though I kind of knew how it was going to happen, Jack s death was a let down He was being such an awful person before this, I wasn t that upset when it did happen because we knew that Schuyler would do it to save the fallen Now Oliver and Finn, Don t even get me started I hated and am so confused by Oliver s decision at the end Like what the hell He wanted to become a vampire And ta [...]
Amazing book, Great ending Totally worth the read
4.5 5 StarsThe synopsis said Gates of Paradise, the final book in the Blue Bloods series, would be heartbreaking and have unbearable sacrifice That was not a lie While the end was still rushed, as so many series finales seem to be, it still cleaned up pretty nicely, leaving someone who started the series years ago someone like me feeling like they d lost a huge part of their life.My only problem with this book besides the somewhat rushed final scenes I want a bloodbath and being confused on occa [...]
I finally did it I finally finished this series At one point in time, I loved this series I loved how creative the author was and how unique the books were But as time went on, the series sort of lost it s luster for me I don t know if I got bored, or over saturated by vampires or what, but it s taken me years to finally decide to pick up this book I m glad to know what happened to Schuyler , Jack, Oliver and the othersbut I didn t really love the way things ended I didn t mind what happened wit [...]
A fitting end to an outstanding series The last book of the Blue bloods series is the first book I read this year and suffice to say I wasn t the least bit disappointed The story continues from where it left off in the previous instalment with Schyluer in search of the gate of promise with a trustee conduit and best friend Oliver Jack and Mimi in the under world carrying out their deception as Lucifer s trusted minions and Bliss trying to rally up the wolf pack The story is pretty much predictab [...]
Oh, JackCan t say much without spoiling something view spoiler Jack was amazing And yes, I was worried there for a second but I refused to believe he could do that even as it was happening He is one of the very few heroes that actually trusts and believes in the girl she loves enough to know that she can save herself We really need guys like that in books hide spoiler Don t read that if you plan on reading the book, cause it will spoil it a lot.I am a bit conflicted over this book In one hand, [...]
I mean really Did she seriously end the series w OHP becoming a vamp He finally finds someone he could be with on his own merit and that s how she treats him Like he wasn t enough Then she tried to lead the reader into a whole other series w Bliss I couldn t get done w the series fast enough I had to follow through to see what happened to Oliver, Bliss, and Mimi Schuyler and Jack lost all my my respect and interest around the 3rd book The only thing she did right was have Mimi and Kingsley be tr [...]
NOOO You can t do this to me Mellisa January 2013 You better change it to something like DECEMBER 31, 2011.
I can t deny it I have followed the blue bloods to hell and back I have read them through seven books and it feels quite sad knowing this will be goodbye.When I got my hands on the book, I felt relief and happiness wash through me because here it is finally, within my grasp, after a long long wait I m not a very patient person so you can only imagine what I had to endure Soon though, when I got the book, I felt anxiety too Because suddenly, I m scared to reach the last page.I ve always enjoyed t [...]
So, I have finally finished the Blue Bloods series And it was such an amazing finale I wrote in my review of Lost In Time that I expected good things from this finale, and it didn t let me down Yes, I would have liked a bigger battle or a longer battle I think I mean but all the build up to the battle was amazing It was like a chess match, and everyone on the good side were just getting all their pieces in place to defeat the big bad and it was pretty freaking epic.Schuyler is one of those unfor [...]
This is the last book in the Blue Blood series I have adored these books from the very first one But as the series started to get further in number, the books started to lack their usual luster Plots started to get shaky, and some things were simply forgotten Some of the books were so cliche and typical that you felt angered that such a beautiful and interesting plot got ruined First complaint was that the author published a spin off series from this book If you read the last book Lost in Time , [...]
I will admit, I ve been reading this series since its inception and quite a lot of time has passed since I read 6 I also didn t get to read the.5 books, so perhaps that explains my confusion.Bliss is a wolf How the heck did that happen I am just so confused and I don t know where to start Not sure I got why Jack had to be such a jerk the entire book, even if it was to convince Lucifer of his loyalty I don t understand how people whose souls were destroyed a la Cordelia and Dylan could show up in [...]

Can t believe that after this book, it s over now But I m gonna read this one and put off my other CR for nowG I finished it It s really really sad that this is the last book I love this series that much Don t really care about what others would say The battle is not that epic but really, it s memorable It s just right I was a bit afraid that there ll be no battle like what happened in Rapture Fallen series , but thank heavens, that it didn t end like that And the secret is not that surprising s [...]
I have to admit that I am not a faithful fan of this series However I have read several of the books in this series For this reason, I never felt a strong connection to the characters but I was still curious to see how this series would end For me, I found Mimi, Kingsley, Bliss and Lawson s stories the most intriguing The rest of the characters were alright Schuyler who I thought to be a main character was disappointing to me She was uninteresting She did not do much during most of the book unti [...]
