Misguided Angel, the fifth in the Blue Bloods series does exactly what it was meant to do. Be a filler. Although many of us were expecting a whirlwind saga that revolved around the tumultuous relationship between Jack and Schuyler, Melissa de la Cruz instead presents her readers with a well thought out look at the other aspects of the series that she hasn't focused on. But what I find interesting is that this “filler” book is anything but.

The introduction of Deming Chen gives the reader a deeper look at the Blue Blood society away from New York. I also enjoyed the vampire murder mystery aspect of the whole story. Although the relationship between Paul and Deming was very forced. It is the only problem I have with any of de la Cruz's book. She focuses so much on the action and the plots that she never develops her characters or relationships enough.

On the other hand, when looking at Mimi, the author has truly created a sensational character. Evolving from a spoiled brat, Mimi has become the quintessential anti-heroine. Her pain for losing Jack combined with her pain for losing Kingsely, and her new found Regency create a new role for Mimi; being uncomfortable. The aspect I found most interesting about her part in the book was her relationship with Oliver. The friendship is exactly the evolution that makes Mimi so likeable. The mention about the blood houses was also a very fascinating look at how destructive the blue bloods are.

De la Cruz does mention Jack and Schuyler, but very briefly. However, their part does play a crucial part in advancing the plot, however confusing it is.

Overall, Misguided Angel was not the book any of us expected it to be. But as a filler book, it does a pretty good job of cramming us with information, even if most of it is subtle nuances. I would highly recommend reading the book and I am eagerly antipating the next book in hopes that all the confusion is cleared up with a lengthy novel.


After inheriting the complicated Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with Jack, risking both of their lives for love. The two of them embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the remaining five gates that guard Earth from Lucifer, Prince of Hell and lord of the Silver Bloods. As the Blue Blood coven weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads?and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires.
