Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

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.

Hey guys! Shirley here.

I was first introduced to Richelle Mead by her series Vampire Academy (which I gladly take the credit of introducing Lacey to). I absolutely fell in love with her writing, so when I heard that she was creating a spin-off series, I was literally ecstatic. The first book is called Bloodlines, and the Indigo Spell is the 3rd book of the series.

Without spoiling anything, I just want to put it out there that I freaking loved Adrian in this book SO SO MUCH OMG HE IS SO PERFECT WHY CAN’T I BE SYDNEY I DON’T UNDERSTAND.

But I’d recommend you guys reading the Vampire Academy series first, because not only is it amazing, but you’ll have slightly better insight and background information on what’s going on in this series. But honestly this is one of the vampire series that I actually love. It’s far better than Twilight if I do say so myself, and it’s so much more interesting too. I love that Sydney became more accepting to magic and actually began to go against what she has always been taught. And obviously I was literally speechless and swooning so much whenever Adrian came to the scene because HE’S JUST SO PERFECT. OF COURSE THE ENDING JUST KILLED ME. Without spoiling too much, I JUST HATE THE ENDING WHY DID THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN EVERYTHING WAS TURNING OUT SO SO WELL.

I’m sorry I suck at reviewing but I swear to ya’ll I will get better! Basically if you like guys and vampires, I recommend this book. You might possibly fall in love with Adrian Ivashkov too. Sydrian is my OTP.

And of course, 5 hearts!
