From Goodreads. After their beautiful yet brief bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force are forced to separate. To fulfill the Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler travels to Alexandria to search for Catherine of Siena and the Gate of Promise. But Schuyler quickly discovers that everything she believed about the Gate to be wrong. Meanwhile, Jack makes the difficult decision to return to New York to face his twin and former bondmate, Mimi. But instead of a bitter reunion, he is faced with a choice for which there is no good option.

Mimi, with a most unexpected travel companion in Oliver Hazard-Perry, jets off to Egypt, too, to search for Kingsley Martin, her long lost love. With all roads leading to Hell, Mimi learns that not all love stories have happy endings. But she'll have to put her own feelings aside if she's going to save her crumbling Coven.

Review by Kate
LOST IN TIME, by Melissa de la Cruz, is the next installment of the Blue Bloods series. Packed full of action and suspense this book leads our beloved characters to the point of no return and set's up the next and final book in the series.

This book enveloped me from the start, I could not put it down! This book shifted POV's between Schuyler, Mimi, and Allegra. Schuyler had her problems looking for the Gate of Promise along with coming down with an illness she wrongfully diagnosed. Mimi and Oliver traveled to Hell (literally) to find Kingsley but when they arrived getting him out proved to be more of a problem then Mimi thought. Melissa took us on a trip to the past with Allegra and her love affair with Stephen Chase (Schuyler's biological father). All of these story lines culminated into an awesome battle and the beginning of the end for this series.

As much as I have loved the Schuyler/Jack story in the previous books, I found myself anxiously awaiting Mimi and Allegra's stories more. Throughout the books, I've gained a liking to Mimi as she has grown from spoiled brat to spoiled brat in love (which brought her down to Earth... a teeny bit). The chemistry between Mimi and Kingsley is stunning to read and I yearned for them to be together again!! And I really enjoyed getting more background on Allegra before she went into a coma.

I don't want to ruin too much of the book because it is that good! Fans of the series need to pick up this book and if you aren't a fan yet, I suggest you get started before this magnificent series comes to an end!
