Its not easy being Sydney Sage, an alchemist forced to live among Moroi. She has to help hide Moroi princess Jill among humans not always an easy task. Especially when she is suppose to dislike the race of people she is helping.
But her loyalties may be shifting. After everything she has seen she starts to question her alchemist teachings and beliefs. Living among them daily isn't helping her stay on the short and narrow path she was raised to belief. As her affection for Adrian grows and she finds her self more and more enmeshed in Moroi life she places herself in a dangerous position. How does she remain an Alchemist when she is questioning their beliefs.
And now there is a new threat to Sydney and her modge podge band of Moroi....Vampire Hunters are real and living in Palm Springs. In the end Sydney will risk her own life and freedom by not only risking her own life but by using some of the magic she
This is the second book in the Bloodlines series. Which is also a spin off of the 6 book Vampire Academy series (which is fabulous if you haven't read it). I don't always enjoy spin offs but this is the exception to the rule.
Richelle Mead has once again delivered a book that will have you staying up way past your bed time. Page by page she weaves a tale of intrigue and drama. Sydney is a character with a lot of depths and inner demons that you cant help but admire her always looking for the right path to follow even when it conflicts with her upbringing.
Full of a few twist that I didn't expect and a few I did. I was once again caught up in the world Mead created at when the book ended I was upset that I had to move on to another book. I wanted lots and lots more...I can hardly wait for The Indigo Spell that is set to be released February 12, 2013.
