    I'd have to say this graphic novel is so good... It made me want to read the actual series. First, i think the plot is so unique from other vampire ya novels that I've read so far. Two, the illustrations... Oh they are just so beautiful! What else? The ending.. It was kind of intriguing and I reall could relate to this Sky girl. I just don't understand why she had to have a really weird name.. Lol. I'd have to say this graphic novel is so good... It made me want to read the actual series.

This series had everything for me great characters, New York glamour, paranormal, intricate mysteries, and some pretty good world building. However, as of late I've been getting annoyed with the books. It started with the fifth book. A lot of people thought the series should've ended after the fourth book, but I wasn't so sure.

However, as of late I've been getting annoyed with the books. It started with the fifth book. A lot of people thought the series should've ended after the fourth book, but I wasn't so sure. I thought there was still a lot to work with this series. Then the sixth book came out. It was better than the fifth, but to be honest I thought a lot of things were missing from the series that once made it such a delight to read. I still gave the book a high rating though mainly because of the set up it gave for the final book. And I haven't read the final book yet, but I have read a lot of the spin offs that have spawned out of the book. Most of them have been a mixed bag at best. I felt like in comparison to the original series, these books lacked the maturity that they had (which is really bad for Witches considering it's an adult book but when you mock someone's virginity what do you expect?) So why did I decide to read the graphic novel version of this series, a blatant attempt to cash out on the series, well I sort of wanted to see how the characters would look. Okay. Jack Force has been one of my favorite book boyfriends for several years and seeing someone's illustrations of him could potentially be droll worthy. However, they weren't What did I think about this graphic novel? Well, in comparison to most of these YA graphic novel adaptions this one is pretty decent. The storyline isn't changed that much, the characters look sort of how they're suppose to, and it's all done in one book. That's a plus right? I guess. To be blunt about it, there were a lot of things about it that bothered me. Things that might be more subjective than objective. The artwork for one. I talk about this more in my worst feature part of the review, but there were some frames that were just really heinous. Look, I get that it's a graphic novel but there are graphic novels that look really realistic. This isn't one of them. In fact, I was sort of angered at how cheestastic the artist made some of the frames look. Most notably the modeling ones. And God, Schuyler. As I'll tell you later on poor Schuyler is in dire need of a makeover. I really wish the artist who did the cover, did the drawings for the rest of the book. The cover is beautiful. The inside contents of the book is mixed. Another thing that bothered me was the pacing. A lot of things from the beginning of the book were kept in, but the middle and end felt rushed. And some important scenes were missing too. If you're expecting something really great from this graphic novel installment, you're going to be disappointed. It's essentially a watered down version of Blue Bloods with bad art work. Yes, it's better (in my opinion) than other YA adaptions out there that try to make three graphic novels out of one book, but it's hardly a Batman graphic novel by any means. Best Feature: One book one story. In a lot of these YA to graphic novel adaptions they'll try to drag one book out to two or three books and it takes forever since the turn out of these books is like one every two years (they still haven't gotten to New Moon yet in Twilight the graphic novel and it's been like forever since the first one came out). So, it was nice getting a complete story. Though, I do feel like there were parts of the story and definitely the illustrations suffered from this. Worse Feature: WTF Did You Do to My Characters. Okay, so they got the basic descriptions right, save for Jordan who is suppose to be homely not a junior Belle a la Beauty in the Beast. But there were some frames where I was appalled at how unattractive these characters looked. And I really hated the way Mimi and Schuyler were drawn in general. Mimi is suppose to be into high couture (that does not mean she dresses trampy), she has a tan, and she's suppose to look polished. This Mimi does not. She dresses like a hooker and she looks like that lady who married the head of Intergang in Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman. But even Mimi looked better than Schuyler. Poor Schuyler. I don't know what the heck they thought they were doing when they designed her. Seriously, her eyebrows needed a good tweezing. And there was this one really unflattering frame where she and Oliver look like they just passed gas-I swear. And then there were the boys in general, it looked like my poor Jack Force was wearing makeup. Not very flattering for him. Sigh...I know beauty is in the beholder, but God I thought the artwork in the main book was pretty awful. The cover though was beautiful (perhaps because it was done by another artist). Appropriateness: It's pretty appropriate there is some violence in it with a Martian Manhunter wannabe, but nothing other than that. They even took the risque jean billboard and turned it to looking like billboard designed by someone on acid.

    I don't remember the first book being quite so interesting, so I'd say this is a win for the graphic novel. It's been years since I read Blue Bloods, and even though it's got a huge following, I never really managed to go back for more. Honestly, I can't remember exactly why, though. I vaguely remember thinking it was a bit too full of unnecessary...something...that made it thick and boring. However, this graphic novel made me think that it might be worth a re-read.

Maybe it's only because all the clunky boring stuff got chopped out, but the core story seems kinda cool! Also, the art was pretty nice for an adaptation of a book. I've found that most graphic novels based on books tend to make everyone look like they just stepped out of Fairyland. Everyone has sharp pointy angles, and you can't really be sure who is a boy and who is a girl. A lot of people love that style, but I'm not one of them. So...bonus for me!

    It's been a while since i read Blue blood but i felt like this graphic novel was pretty true to the book. Of course a lot has been cut but the important parts were there and the art was pretty similar to the way i imagined most of the characters. I hope the rest of the series will be made as well!

    Sigh 3.5 I got sucked in.....like always. I have never read this book in its original form and now I'm kind of bummed I didn't buy the three that was at the library bookstore yesterday. Maybe on Monday they will still be there. Blue Bloods reminded me of a few YA supernatural books that I've read in the past. A little bit of Fallen by Lauren Kate, a little bit of Mortal Instruments, a little bit of Beautiful Creatures. I'm sure there is more, but those were the ones I could identify right away.

Schuyler Van Alen (Sky) and her best friend Oliver....[these two reminded me of Clary and Simon] anyways they bump into Jack Force [Jace] on his way into a club. Sky wants to follow. There is a bunch of school hierarchy drama. Jack's sister is the top bitch of the school yada yada she is bad ass. There is a random death. All the kids knew the girl, but not well. There is a conspiracy among the elite and Sky/Oliver. Sky finds out she is something else. She freaks. She and Jack have some kind of connection [Fallen series... also the fact that the 'bluebloods' are ancient another Fallen similarity] Oliver shows Sky a secret room [Beautiful Creatures]. Oliver knows what Sky is. So if you understood that break down....this is a supernatural/urban fantasy about vampires. Sky gets pushed into this world. Come to find out she is actually apart of it. There is a mystery to solve and the only one she can rely on is her best friend.

    i really can't wait to see how this turns out. they made a graphic novel for twilight and it was, in my opinion, really well done. the artist would have to be perfect though. the problem with changing mediums (ex. book -> movie/graphic novel) is that everybody has their own idea of how each of the characters should look and how their surroundings should look. only a really great artist who is familiar with the series will bee able to pull it off well. i really can't wait to see how this turns out. they made a graphic novel for twilight and it was, in my opinion, really well done. the artist would have to be perfect though. the problem with changing mediums (ex. book -> movie/graphic novel) is that everybody has their own idea of how each of the characters should look and how their surroundings should look. only a really great artist who is familiar with the series will bee able to pull it off well.

    I don't read graphic novels often at all. In fact I can probably count the ones I have read in my lifetime on one hand. But I do enjoy them, especially ones that are based on book series. I thought this one was pretty true to the first book in the Blue Bloods series, the images are very much what I imagined in my head when reading it. I will need to find the other graphic novels now.

    I remember trying to read the first book when I was a senior in high school and I couldnt get into it. So seeing that there was a Graphic Novel was great because I got to see the main plot of the book. I was really wrong about it. I had the setting was like in the 1600's the whole time. I didn't know that it changes. I am interested to learned Sky and Jack's relationships. As well as Jack's father relationship with Sky's mother. I personally think they were lovers but she left him to be with Sky I remember trying to read the first book when I was a senior in high school and I couldnt get into it.

    This reminded me so much of House of Night graphic novel with one major difference - I have no desire to read the actual book/series House of Night but I definitely want to read the book Blue Bloods! And see how far I go on the series. I can see it being a delicious guilty pleasure - or a giant flop if it gets too angsty. Love the idea of Roanoke/Blue Bloods being wiped out by a mythical vampire hunter/warped fallen angel. That's quite a yummy backstory. Excited to read these!!

    A fun little vampire story. Very white and old money (vampire) crowd. There is even a joke about one looking like Kate Moss. Um, har? I don't know, the art is good, the story is okay. Entertainment without any vitamins? I'll probably read the next installment if/when it comes out unless I forget to, which is a distinct possibility. A fun little vampire story.

Schuyler and her friends will try to solve the mysteries that surround them. Lots of teenage drama just like the book but it was fantastic. And I loved the illustrations, it was a great read. I enjoyed the story even more the second time around and seing the characters in the page was amazing. If only there were graphic novels for all the books in this series! I'll be picking the second book soon.

The colors were great, and many of the characters were drawn spot-on. My biggest concern is how Jack Force and Cordelia Van Alen were drawn. Jack is supposed to be super hot and fine. He was ugly, and not cute at all. I mean, why!? Cordelia is supposed to be an old, tiny, rial thin woman. She was drawn substantially. Yeah she was old but why wasn't she tiny and frail? Just wrong. I thought Dylan and Bliss were done well; Mimi Force was ok. She is supposed to be a gorgeous and well-off woman with blonde hair, super skinny, etc. I felt she looked a little trashy sometimes, and didn't appear to be well-bred or a powerful Blue Blood whom most women envy. Schuyler was drawn adequately. She looked a little homely in some frames, but she did look gorgeous in her vintage clothes in others. I think because I'm an avid graphic novel reader that I am perhaps more forgiving than others who would read this graphic novel and be disappointed to see their favorite characters drawn this way. It's important to remember that this medium is different, and they did choose a fairly generic style for the drawings and colors. I can tell the creators wanted to play it safe-- but in doing so it didn't really stand out too much in terms of visual appeal. The story was done well in terms of cutting out certain details so it fits into one graphic novel. I didn't feel like they missed any major or crucial parts of the novel; and if you haven't read the novel you could easily follow along. All except for the beginning, that is. The diary entry was not really later reintegrated, and in the book it's better explained and makes sense. Whereas here it seems sort of out of place and never ties back together, so if you're a first time reader be wary of that. All in all I'm glad I picked this up. It was a super fun read and very easy to follow along. I liked most of the characters and the drawings. It was a little generic, but I think because the story is so great it doesn't really matter. I will definitely be reading the next installment of this graphic novel, although I'll probably borrow it from the library instead of purchase it. I recommend it to all fans of the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz.

    This was a surprisingly interesting read for a graphic novel adapted from the Blue Bloods series. I read Blue Bloods (the first in the series) many years ago when I found it randomly on a visit to the library.

I actually had no idea this graphic novel was adapted from that series since it was so long ago that I didn't make the connection but it's pretty cool that I stumbled across it because it made the book sound interesting. Whenever books are turned into graphic novels they are super condensed and sometimes for books you really love it feels lacking but for this book it was perfect because it put all the highlights in and would probably really encourage people to go and read it. The illustrations were lovely but very smooth like the perfect look achieved by a photoshopped effect. I liked that the background in some frames was blurred but still totally filled in so there was very little white space that wasn't outside the borders. The characters were also completely gorgeous but the main character, Schuyler, took the cake with the most enviable face and figure for all the rest. The cover is also illustrated by Fiona Staples so it seems I can never get away from her despite whatever graphic novel/comic I'm reading but I'm not complaining at all! Since it has been at least five years since I read this book I remembered very, very little of the book so it was basically all a mystery to me as I went along and it did seem like an interesting plot for a vampire-romance book. With limited time the graphic novel had it still introduced the characters thoroughly, set up the drama, incorporated a few shocking twists for the main character and wrapped up the ending well with a clear path to the next book. I'm not sure how people who loved the book series feel about it but I think it was adapted well by the author and illustrator.

    With the release of the final book in the Blue Bloods series, GATES OF PARADISE, it's nice that the graphic novel adaptation of the first book is coming out now. I read it before GATES OF PARADISE to remind myself where Schuyler Van Alen and her friends started, eight books ago. I think other fans of the series will also find it a pleasant refresher, although I don't know if they'll continue to read the graphic adaptations. The story is still good. Young prep school kids are getting murdered.

Young prep school kids are getting murdered. Others find out that they're actually vampires-cum-fallen-angels and the killer might be one of their ancient enemies, risen again. It's not as smooth in comic form. Robert Venditti chose to preserve the dialogue, but not the narration, and Alina Urusov's art can't convey everything the characters are thinking. It makes for a brisk but shallow book. I'd definitely forgotten how much actually happened in the first book. It's a tad overwhelming when condensed. The real standout in BLUE BLOODS is Urusov's art. The characters may not be exactly as I pictured them, but each character design is distinctive and lovely. The backgrounds are extremely impressive and I liked that the color scheme changed to suit each scene's mood. Sometimes cover painting can feel like false advertising, but Urusov's work lives up to Fiona Staples' terrific cover. BLUE BLOODS may appeal to comics fans, but I suspect most of the readers will be fans of the series who are eager to see a new interpretation. BLUE BLOODS: The Graphic Novel is worth picking up for the novelty, but the original version is better.

I now have a picture in my mind of each character once I read the original novel by Melissa de la Cruz. But I think for me, they still need to improve more on the appearance of Schuyler because if she were to compete with Mimi, she has to be more appealing. Even though I was able to understand the story by reading the graphic novel version, I still wish that they did something more for the parts that were cut, so that the ones who didn't read the original novel would be more enlightened too. Overall, even if the flow of events were a little too fast for my taste, the art was beautiful and readers will surely enjoy it too. *I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This, however, did not influence my review in any way.*

There are helpful tags as each character is introduced to help you remember each character's name and general role in the story. Due to the condensed nature of the narrative, events more quickly, but without sacrificing characterization. There are several twists and turns as De La Cruz develops an interesting mythology. I was able to understand enough to discuss the series with some youth who had read the series. A worthy entry in the paranormal romance genre. I will say that this does continue the current trend of painting vampires as misunderstood, sympathetic characters and offers up a mysterious, villainous force to oppose the vampires.

    The art was really good in some moments and good in others. So basically I like the art style. And this one was interesting. I been contemplating whether to read the books or not and thought, huh, didn't know there was a graphic novel and wanted to start with that. After reading, I think I might finally get around to reading the books. Might. Heard the series is like Gossip Girl with vampires, in a way or something.

    Okay, I haven't read the first Blue Bloods book in like ten years... but damn, this made me want to read them ALL! Beautiful art accompanied a very original vampiric story, with great allusions to history that I personally found fascinating. Any kind of fiction that centers around Roanoke Island and that mysterious word "Croatoan" has me immediately. Guess I'm adding the novel series to my TBR list.

Beautiful art accompanied a very original vampiric story, with great allusions to history that I personally found fascinating.

    Yes, definitely going to try to get this. Depending on the price of course. My first priority is always the book itself rather than the comic of it. I like this new trend of making good YA novels into comic books. Broader audience, and just plain good.

    A good example of how problematic adapting YA franchises to comics can be. However, I gave this 3 stars because the artwork by Alina Urusov was gorgeous. I'd like to see more of her work, with a better story. A good example of how problematic adapting YA franchises to comics can be.

    I read the first three books in the book series back in my 'twilight days' and the books were okay, not amazing. This graphic novel was alright actually, the art was good and the story was condensed really well. 4/5 I read the first three books in the book series back in my 'twilight days' and the books were okay, not amazing.

    I need the next one. So pretty and nice way to remind me of what happened in the beginning of the series.
