In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch–a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood–or else she might be next.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.
Every time I think I can’t love the word Richelle Mead has created with Vampire Academy and now Bloodlines I read Indigo Spell and I fall even harder! I love how she takes all her characters on journeys, we discover them as they discover themselves. They’re not static characters, they grow and change and I love them for it, Indigo Spell is no different.
Sidney is definitely one of my favorite kick ass characters. She’s got the brain ad wisdom ad isn’t afraid to get her and dirty doing a little magic anymore. I love how she’s really coming into her own. Not letting people decide things for her or control her life, she’s bound and determined to blaze her own path – even if that means burning a few bridges. Not an easy decision by any stretch, but she’s doing it and you can’t help but feel pride.
It’s hard to believe just how far Sidney has come from when we first met her. I love the direction her character is going, but it’s also going to get nail biting suspenseful, all the lines she has to be careful to walk! And especially as we see how Indigo Spell ended, Fiery Heart will probably be the most intense book so far!
I can’t wait to get it in my hot little hands !
I was really afraid that all this Marcus Finch talk would have us dealing with a love triangle. I’m not an uber hater of love triangles but I was relieved Mead didn’t take that tack.
It’s so hard for me to gush appropriately and nt spoil things! So I’m just going to yell for all of you holding back on reading either the Vampire Academy or Bloodlines series – what on earth are you waiting for?!!
