Blessed by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Blessed, the third installment in the series with Tantalize and Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith, continues the tale of vampire Quincie P. Morris from Tantalize and the angel Zachary from Eternal. Quincie must find time to run the family restaurant, clear her best friend Kieren (a werewolf) of murder and must also make sure the vampire who turned her into one, Bradley, doesn't come back. With the help of new friends from Eternal like Zachary, Nora, Freddy and Harrison, Quincie learns more about the vampiric world. Unfortunately for them Bradley is trying to take over the powers of Dracula. If he succeeds in becoming like Dracula there would be no stopping him from coming back to the town and taking Quincie to live with him forever. Will Brad succeed in becoming Dracula? Or will Quincie and her cohorts find a way to stop him forever?

This was a great conclusion to the series. It was cool to have both sets of characters for the first two books combine into the final installment. The combination of Bradley and the essence of Dracula were very interesting since Bradley became basically insane by the end. This book was very well written and developed nicely. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes the supernatural-ish books like Twilight and House of Night.
