Lost in Time by: Melissa De La Cruz Review

Title: Lost in Time
Author: Melissa De La Cruz
Publisher: Hyperion
Pages: 342
Series: Blue Bloods
Format: Hardcover (Target)
The Stakes have never been higher for the young Blue Bloods of Manhattan.  After their brief yet beautiful bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force depart for Egypt, desperate to find the elusive Gate of Promise before Jack must face his twin, Mimi, for a blood trial.  A blood trial that one one of them can survive.  But everything Schuyler thought she knew about the gate turns out to be a lie, and they soon find themselves ensnared in a deadly battle against the demon-born.  Schuyler and Jack take up arms, only to realize that there is a much graver threat simmering in the Kingdom of the Dead.
Meanwhile, determined to the save the only vampire she still loves, Mimi has followed Kingsley Martin into Hell.  With the help of her new human Conduit, Oliver Hazard-Perry, Mimi makes a bargain with the Queen of the Dead that she may soon regret.  When the time comes to choose between love and revenge, both Mimi and Oliver will learn the true meaning of sacrifice.
Confronted by danger, betrayed, and loss at every turn, the Blue Bloods must find the will to fight--and love--another day.

My Review:

The Blue Bloods are back and looking for saving in all the wrong places.  Sky and Jack are searching in Alexandria to learn that where they really need to be is Cairo.  Mimi and Oliver also in Cairo to rescue Kingsley who is in 7th level of Hell.  We also meet some unlikely characters in this book.  Lennox brothers who use to be part of Kingsley's team.  

Mimi begins to wonder after she talks to Kingsley whether he ever loved her.  Oliver trusts Mimi about as far as he can throw her.  Jack is trying everything he can think of to severe the bond with Mimi without killing each other.  And Sky thinks she may be with child and doesn't realize the bond is killing her slowly.  We also learn more about Allegra and her bond Charles Force.

What a great and thrilling journey this book takes you on.  I love the writing style and the stories in general how they end up overlapping each other.  Can't wait to read the next one!
