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.
Holy alien babies everywhere! I REFUSE to be okay with that ending. Right when everything's okay again, things get even worse. *exasperated sigh* WHY, Richelle Mead?? But I totally give props for the adorableness at the scene before the ending.
The Indigo Spell was an awesome although somewhat irritating book. The plot of the series moves forward and we see a drastic change between character relationships and self development. Sydney, for example, is more aware of everything going on with the Alchemists and more rebellious, which I totally cheered her on throughout the book! She finally comes to a stage where she sees the bigger picture and the details/aspects within it including family, friends, potential boyfriend, Moroi, and the Alchemists.
Adrian. Adrian. Adrian. Adrian. SYDRIAN. SYDRIAN.
*grins stupidly* *sighs dreamliy* Adrian=the best thing about this book. Loyal, protective, courageous, hilarious, determined, and romantic, whats NOT to love about him? Sydney and Adrian seriously had me snorting and grinning through their actions and thoughts. Even after Sydney rejects him, he does go through this depressed phase but he recovers quickly and was totally cheery and was determined that he would get Sydney to fall in love with him if she already hadn't! It was just hilarious seeing them together. And the thing abouot Adrian is that he's always there fr Sydney no matter what...
The there's Marcus Finch...the mystery piece of the puzzle. There actually wasn't much to him except that he was a rebel alchemist. I expected more not in appearance but actions and his role in the book. He was also quite annoying unfortunately. I had hoped to like him but I don't think I can. And I kinda hope he isn't part of the next book. The only thing I applaud him was pushing/driving Sydney to the direction that showed more of the Alchemist and how they really work.
Overall however, Richelle Mead continues to enrapture me in the series yet again!! I do recommend this to Vampire Academy fans and totally encourage any paranormal book lover out there to give the series a try! Happy Readings!!
