Atom, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-905654-76-5.
(Age: 16+) Recommended. They are young, fabulous and fanged. They are the Blue Blues, the secret vampire elite. Now the young Blue Bloods are being murdered by the most powerful and strongest vampires of all . . . the Silver Bloods. With the coven of Manhattan in disarray, three young Blue Bloods find themselves on a journey to Egypt, which seems to hold the key to protecting the Blue Bloods.
Schuyler Van Alen has just won the love of her life, another Blue Blood who was meant to be bonded to another, but things are not completely happy for the new couple. Schuyler must continue on with the Van Alen legacy to protect the remaining Blue Bloods, while Jack, her beloved, must face his twin, his bond mate, to end the bond and destroy her, so that he and Schuyler can be together forever.
Mimi has been made leader of the coven of Manhattan and she feels that she can't fulfill the role completely without help of her new love. However, Kingsley has been taken to the underworld to live the rest of eternity there. So Mimi must travel to the underworld to rescue him before it's too late for him and the rest of the coven.
Lost in Time is the sixth novel in the Blue Blood series which follows the characters Schuyler, Mimi and Jack as they try to restore the covens to peace as the Silver bloods try to take over the world. At times during the story, your heart will race faster and not only due to the action but also for other reasons. Melissa de la Cruz has finish this book with the readers wanting more as I know that I can't wait until the next book to come out.
