Blue Bloods: Keys to the Repository by Melissa De La Cruz YPFIC DELACRUZ

This companion piece to the Blue Bloods novels gives a deeper look into the world of our favorite high society bloodsuckers. With a complete back story of the previous novels, in depth character profiles, maps, character journal entries and letters, and brand new short stories this companion is both a perfect introduction for new readers wanting to jump into the series and a juicy morsel for fans to suck dry before the next novel.

I always look at companion books with skepticism. They sometimes seem like they are just a way to pull together cast off writings to make some extra dough between novels. But Keys has enough new material to be worth a look to hardcore fans. However, I think it will be most enjoyed by newcomers or those that may be hazy on some of the details of the books between readings. It is a fun and easy way to find out about the Blue Bloods’ world and the characters that inhabit it. So if you think you may want to read a new vampire series with plenty of mystery and romance then you really should grab the first novel Blue Bloods or just jump into this much shorter companion.
