Review: The Van Allen Legacy

(from Goodreads):

With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver's brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged.
Young, fanged, and fabulous, Melissa de la Cruz's vampires unite in this highly anticipated fourth installment of the Blue Bloods series.

I was very excited to get my hands on this book the forth in the Blue Bloods series. I consider the Blue Bloods series to be one of the best young adult vampire series and one of my personal favorite series. I was unfortunately disappointed upon reading this book. I had to push myself very had to finish it when in the past I'd power through the other books in the series. The pace of the story is very slow and dull. Each chapter switches between three characters Schuyler, Mimi and Bliss, I found myself bored with Schuyler and Mimi's chapters finding only Bliss's interesting seeing how she dealt with
