Synopsis


Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is 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 worse. 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 last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning...


My Thoughts:

Words could not describe the excitement I felt when this precious book finally arrived to my local library. I made my mother drive me all the way there and I basically grabbed the book 5 minutes before the library closed. I am dedicated.

Bloodlines was amazing. Just excellent. I was excited to meet new characters as well as seeing some of the old characters weave in. Rose Hathaway will forever remain my favorite bad ass female character of all time, but I was willing to let some of the light shine on the newest female lead, Sydney. Sydney is unlike Rose. Sydney is collected yet over thinks everything. Rose is impulsive and spontaneous. While each can benefit from those attributes, they can also cause them to make mistakes. But Rose's chapter is over, and it is now Sydney's time.

Sydney seemed rather plain at times to me and I was always excited when you could see her break that stone face whenever Adria Ivashkov was in the picture. Is this little thing between the beloved Adrian and Sydney a new forbidden romance? Well time can only tell. I could feel the romance simmering and while it never reached an all time boil, you can see that this juicy little love tale is inevitable.

I also liked the new scenery for this spin off series and thought it was quite different from the nature wise St, Vladimirs Academy. In this book at least, we normal people can relate a little bit to the humans added in this new series. It's interesting to see how the Moroi and dhampirs relate around the humans and the world that's apart from theirs.

I was so immersed in this book that I was actually able to finish it in a night. Which is so rare for me these days with homework, social life, and high school. So if I was able to achieve that, then you know that this book is worth the staying up.

Also, watch for the next book The Golden Lily to come out on June 12, 2012!

  4. I enjoyed the story except for the fact that Humans and Vampire relationships are totally taboo. Alchemists have like almost no abilities especially compared to a dhampir. So any Moroi's guardian can kick their butts or save their life as in Sydney's case when she gets attacked by two Strigoi vamps. The Alchemists are all totally convinced all vampires are evil, unnatural, and all those other bad things so why is it that they are the ones hiding the vampires?? Sydney falls in love with a Moroi vamp bad boy (who didn't see that coming). There are a lot of things weird about this book that hopefully will be fleshed out in the second book.

  31. Excellent review~ I actually liked this guide a lot more than you did. It's a bit slowly, yes, but it's such an excellent read! I'm also grateful I selected this up outside of university or else I'm sure I wouldn't appreciate studying this in a college establishing.

  32. I am excited about this book as well. I have loved all the books from this writer especially the Vampire Academy. I love that you added the book trailer. That is the best way to get someone’s attention on the book.
