The Vampires of Manhattan by Melissa de la Cruz
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Despite this being the first in the series, there's a lot of reliance on the previous books (Blue Bloods) - so why is this a new series? Beats me. As vampire books go, this was less about blood than it was a sort of murder mystery, mixed with vampire politics and high society. So, not a good read for anyone looking for a "real" vampire book (having said that, not every vampire book needs to be dark; just look at Yarbro's St. Germaine Chronicles). The problem for me was that this just felt slight, without enough to keep me interested in the world or characters.
