Misguided Angel (Book 5, Blue Bloods)

"After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence--with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the seven gates that guard earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silverbloods.

As the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads--and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires."
Plot: The plot thickens! Dun..Dun.. Dun!... DeLaCruz adds a whole lot of new info, we have Mimi as regent struggling to keep the New York Coven united, Jack and Schulyer's love for each other, while they search for the portals and then De Lz Cruz adds the kicker. Which makes the plot for the series THAT much crazier.
Characters: De La Cruz really only focuses on four main characters in this book, she isn't name dropping a bajillion different characters into the scenario, as some of the past books (which wasn't bad and was easy to follow). She kept it Simple and didn't build so much the characters this time as she did the story.
Pros: Great writing, great story and De La Cruz always changes her format.
Cons: Too Short
Final Thoughts:  I enjoyed Book 5 a lot more then I did Books 3 and 4. I liked how she told the story in Parts. Part 1 - Jack and Schulyer's story, Part 2 - Mimi's, Part 3 Deming. It told each of their main stories, without jumping back and forth, but still relating with the other Parts. The new plot twist the author has added is totally crazy, but kind of makes sense. I just didn't see it coming. It is not where I thought this book was heading, but I like it.  I just wish the story was a little longer
