I wasn't free of my past, not yet.
Sydney's blood is special. That's because she's an alchemist - one of a group of himans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worls of humans and vampire. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. But the last encounter Sydney had with vampires got her in deep trouble with the other alchemists. And now with her allegiances in question, her future is on the line.
When Sydney torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far orse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the unlikeliest of places: a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. The last thing Sydney wants is to be accused of sympathizing with vampires. And now she has to live with one.
The Moroi court believe Jill and Sydney will be safe at Amberwood Prep, but threats, distractions, and forbidden romance lurk both outside - and within - the school grounds. Now that they're hiding, the drama is only just beginning
This series doesn't disappoint from the Vampire Academy Series to this Mead doesn't drop the ball. She keeps it rolling. I am happy to say that we follow through with Sydney in the lead of this series and venture down the path to learning more about her radical belief system and get an in-depth look at her views on magic and the need to keep a line in the sand between herself and the vampires (and dampirs) she's protecting.
This review gives Bloodlines a full five hearts. We learn more about the hierarchy in the Alchemists and how much trouble Sydney wound up in from the Vampire Academy Series. Without tripping out with some valuable details some of your favorite characters come back to visit in this series and their development doesn't disappoint, then again, neither does Sydney's. Cheers to you Richelle Mead, another wonderful book well done.
Thanks for listening to my opinions!
