Goodreads Blurb: Lavish parties. Passionate meetings in the night. Bone-chilling murders. Midterms. The day-to-day life of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Bloods friends (and enemies) is never boring. But there's oh-so-much more to know about these beautiful and powerful teens. Below the streets of Manhattan, within the walls of the Repository, exists a wealth of revealing information about the vampire elite that dates back before the Mayflower. In a series of short stories, journal entries, and never-before-seen letters, New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz gives her hungry fans the keys to the Repository and an even more in-depth look into the secret world of the Blue Bloods. Won't you come inside?
This novella read like a text book.  I know it's a kind of who's who among Blue Bloods, but it was kind of dry.  I did enjoy Kingsley's remarks in some areas. ;)  I was stoked about the short stories in here.  I know I've read the one with Dylan before, but it was great seeing the emotion of Jack on their last night at Perry Street.  I recommend this for those that want to know more about the characters.  Also, if you have a hard time with what the words in the Sacred Language mean, this book has a nifty little appendix with the definitions.
