Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

I should let you know that the Vampire Academy series is by far one my favorite YA series. When I found out that Richelle Mead decided to do a spin-off series I was beyond thrilled! That was short lived though. I have to admit I wasn't entirely a fan of the Bloodlines series, but after reading The Indigo Spell I did a complete 360. I can't believe that the sacred girl we met in Russia in Blood Promise is the same Sydney we get to read in The Indigo Spell. The character development since then is truly amazing.

I, for one, love the fact the book starts off with a bang & does not slow down. We start off with Mrs. Terwilliger pushing to embrace her magic & use it to protect herself & those she cares about. Indigo really pushes Sydney to question everything she's ever known. That's where Marcus Flinch comes into play-- For all the hype that was surrounding him I was a bit let down. He wasn't what I expected him to be. All that aside I am beyond thrilled that we get so many Adrian & Sydney scenes (I am STILL in a Sydrian daze. Yes, you read right Sydrian. Sydney + Adrian = major swoon!)

The world Richelle Mead creates is truly like no other. Always unpredictable & leaves you wanting more. If you, like me, have been having mixed reactions about the Bloodlines series I can guarantee that after you've read The Indigo Spell all those mixed reactions will go out the door! The ending to Indigo was totally left field & I for one cannot wait to see what The Fiery Heart has instore.
