There's something so decadent and aesthetically captivating about this series, and the second book was just as satisfying as the first. This book introduces chapters set in Venice and several new characters. The arrival of a certain rapscallion new student at Duchesne shakes up social dynamics and also raises questions about the secret world of the blue bloods. I personally love a ritzy event like the masquerade, and this one was the ideal backdrop to layer additional intrigue and romance into the story. I love this series!

I can't decide if I liked this one or the 1st book better. It got a bit more interesting and I'll probably finish this series sometime, even though it's not one of my favorites. ( )

I read this at the urging of a friend who said it was much better than the first book in the series. I have to agree with her on that. I wasn't as turned off by all the product placement, and there wasn't the name dropping in this like there was in the first book. I'm definitely interested in reading more. ( )

The ever growing world of the vampires, and their secrets, continues in this book. I enjoy this series both for it's teenage agast as well as the huge mystery of the silver bloods and their ture intentions. Can't wait to see how Skylar handles the next series of challenges ( )
