Summary: Have you ever wondered what secrets lurk behind the closed doors of New York City’s wealthiest families? They're powerful, they're famous... they're undead.

Schuyler Van Alen’s blood legacy has just been called into question - is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.

When one of the Gates of Hell is breached by Silver Bloods in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods will need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high; the battle is bloody; and through it all, Carnavale rages on. And in the end, one vampire’s secret identity will be exposed in a revelation that shocks everyone.(
This series is really getting somewhere now. Each book is a little more kickass. There were some suprising and satisfying twists. Melissa De La Cruz also did a really good job of making the story significantly about history and yet very modern. When there wasn't direct vampire business the characters were doing something classically teenage.
Schuyler really annoyed me in this volume. She is selfish and doesn't know what she wants so she just tries to have everything. I think she may have made some progress by the end of the book but let's see if that lasts until the next volume.
