Schuyler Van Alen is starting to get more comfortable with her newfound vampire powers, but she still has many unanswered questions. A trip to Italy in search of her grandfather only serves to make things more confusing. What secrets are the leaders of The Committee hiding? Meanwhile, back in New York, preparations are feverishly underway for the famous Four Hundred Ball. In true Blue Blood fashion, the ball is totally fab, complete with masks, and hidden behind this masquerade is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampire's destiny.
The thrilling sequel in Melissa de la Cruz's vampire mythology has all the glamour, attitude, and vampire lore that made the first book a hit.
Masquerade picks up where Blue Bloods left off. Schuyler is still looking for answers about the Silver Bloods. This book is a fast read, but it does have a lot of fluff that does not seem to further the plot in any way such as Schuyler and Bliss pursuing a modeling career.
I liked Masquerade just as much as I liked the first one. It is not my favorite series, but I still enjoy reading it. It was interesting, and the vampires in this series are unique as ever. I still did not like how all of the vampires are so gorgeous and so skinny they could be mistaken for being anorexic. Besides that, I definitely like this series enough to read the next book in the series someday to see where Melissa de la Cruz takes the story.
