Prepare to be Tested.
The story that kicked off Richelle Mead's international #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series is NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE.
Read it Before it Hits Theaters February 14th, 2014!

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 Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this smoldering fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

Adrian. Adrian. Adrian. This is by far one of the most painful books I’ve ever read. Why you may ask? I LOVE ADRIAN. I mean, I LOVE. LOVE HIM to infinity and beyond and this book is written in his point of view (well half of it). While reading, I just couldn’t help it but expect the worst every time I read a worth “swoon” moment. Let me tell you something, this book has swooning all over! If you are familiar with Richelle’s writing, then you are aware that she has the tendency of shattering your heart within seconds after making it smile. So can you image how painful this was for me?! Well played Richelle, well played.

Not to give much spoiler, let me start of by saying to prepare.

So here we are on a new adventure.

Sydney is in search of solution to help out a greater cause. To break the link. Could she ever find the solution? Would she be able to become powerful and knowledgeable to create such thing? With her sister in the picture, will she be able to juggle time yet hide her new persona?

What about Adrian? Would Adrian’s spirit drive him insane? Would he ever have his shiny moment?

This book has the answers…

Okay to the important part, which everyone is dying to know: Sydrian.

Dear Lord of all Sydrian swooning. I was not expecting to be swooning so much in this book. My heart was smiling so much for Sydrian! This book made me smile so much that I couldn’t believe Richelle, but of course you know how she is...

The hardest part is to know the ending and wanting the next book right away. The hardest part is to wait for another year to know what happens next. I think Richelle takes joy in leaving us hanging in mid air. The anticipation of whether you will land safely or fall over and break is the hardest part.

“Just as long as you don’t do any lasting damage.”

I love this series. This is a spin-off the Vampire Academy series. It took a while to adjust to Sydney, but trust me, you will fall for her. Not to mention, Adrian. He is worth everything. Truly, I love him and I cannot wait for his moment.

Adrian, “You’re more than the magic” and “You can do plenty of other great things”.
