To use a UK commercial catchphrase 'it does exactly what it says on the tin' LOL

The secrets and mysteries are peeled back layer by layer, with a few (or more) shocks and surprises in store. Revelations cleverly picks up the threads of plot from Masquerade. These are definitely not stand alone books, if you haven't read the beginning of the series then you will not understand the intricacies of the plot and character interactions.

Written in 3rd person narrative, mainly focalised from Schyler's point of view (who we have grown to know/understand in the previous books). Schyler is so easy to relate to; an outsider in more ways than one. Within this story Sky's vampire powers are developed further but at what cost? You can also fully appreciate the dilemma she faces torn between her BF and 1st love.

The male protagonists especially seemed to gain a lot more depth of personality in this book, whereas they have previously played more of a background role.

Religion, history and fantasy are all woven together seamlessly into the plot. Topical issues such as the 'credit crunch' are entwined in the narrative adding a sense of realism. I especially adored the depiction of Lucifer. It has always baffled me as to why angels would have followed him in the beginning if he was a horrible/ugly/terrifying monster. Of course, he is all of those things but on the inside. This portrayal would certainly explain a lot :)

Reports are interspersed throughout the book adding intrigue and another dimension to the plot.

The start of the book deals mainly with plot building and character development. Quickly followed by fast paced action and drama culminating in a thrilling cliffhanger.
I was left pondering the questions:
1. Who decided on the bonds. How were they made in the 1st place. As it doesn't necessarily seem to work out for the best.
2. How were the vampire laws made?
Hmmm I wonder........

If you like supernatural romance/action/adventure with lots of fast paced action and ingenious plot twists then this series is a MUST for you ;)

very nice as the previous book, it is very gripping and very well written, the description of the Silver Blood and of the other evil character is very good, so good that it kind of scared me a bit even though I am definitely above the age of the average reader!!

The incest is a little alarming but hey you get over it, helps you hate certain characters which is always for the best. Well explained with all the Vamp-Tastic details, love the mythological side. Being a Msc i find the idea of vamps craving fish blood a little bit strange .. but easily over looked. Very good and surprisingly voted for by Disney so you cannot go wrong.

Follows suit of the other books, not as good as the latter but still pacey. Good follow up on leading characters relationships which keeps you on your toes
