I had to go and drive to see my sister for her birthday, so I was unable to read this book as fast as I would have liked because I was really looking forward to this one.
It totally took the series in a different direction. I liked how Ms. de la Cruz had each chapter as a different perspective from either Schuyler, Bliss or Mimi. It was interesting to see how the series was developing from the point of view of all three main female characters.
I started to care for Jack's character more in this book and finally saw him as a real loving person, who truly does love Schuyler. I am glad that in the end they finally run away together, only took them 4 books. However, I do feel sorry for Oliver in the end.
Bliss' story was better explained and I understand that now, but it is still a little confusing on how her mother and father came together to create her especially since she said it was done in love. But I guess that will be explained in the end.
Overall, 'The Van Alen Legacy' saved the series for me and I did enjoy this book. =]
