It was eerie how they knew so much about you — almost as if they were always there, watching.

Keys to the Repository is a companion book to Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series, providing a plethora of information on the universe of the Vampyres

It is highly advisable to read this book after The Van Alen Legacy and before Misguided Angel, or to select carefully the passages you want to read, in order not to spoil some events or revelations.


Lavish parties. Secret trysts. Bone-chilling murders. Angels. Demons. Midterms. The day-to-day lives of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Blood friends (and enemies) are 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, is a wealth of never-before revealed information about the vampire elite that dates back to the dawn of history. In a series of short stories, journal entries, and intimate letters, New York Times best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz gives you the keys to the Repository and an in-depth look into the secret world of the Blue Bloods.

Won’t you come inside?
