Bloody Valentine - Melissa  de la Cruz Review written by the YA Fantasy Guide staff reviewer, Camille Morales.Bloody valentine is a Blue Bloods novella. I am a huge fan of the series, so I was thrilled to finally read this book. I’d been waiting a long time to get it. It was totally worth it.This book will not be your normal Blue Bloods book, because it is divided in three parts, and each part tells a different story. The parts tell: what happens to Oliver after Schuyler leaves with Jack, how Allegra and Schuyler’s father met, and Schuyler and Jack’s bonding. It does not follow where Misguided Angel left off. The one I enjoyed most was Allegra’s and Schuyler’s father’s story. It was just so amazing how they got to know each other. They’d already known who they were, and had seen each other, but never really got to know each other. In this story, it tells you how they got to know each other. You get to see more about Charles Van Alen also. It was a really, really good story. My least favorite, though, was Oliver’s. Before I read it, I’d thought my least favorite was going to be the bonding between Jack and Schuyler, because I like having them deal with the whole forbidden love thing. But, now they are bonded. But, the way this book ends, it makes the whole bonding make sense. Okay, so Oliver’s story is basically about how he deals with life without Schuyler, and how he goes to extreme measures to stop the pain being away from her is causing. But this girl, Freya, helps him get through it. What I didn’t like about this one was that I thought the relationship Freya and Oliver had was too quick and rushed. But, besides that detail (which is not-so-small), the story is overall good.So basically, I enjoyed this book a lot. I didn’t love it, but I did like it a lot, and I recommend it to everyone who has read the books in the series. And to everyone who hasn’t read the series, I highly recommend them.
