When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines 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.
Have I ever mentioned what a Mead fangirl I am? I jump at the oppertunity to read anything this woman writes. I am happy with the characters that this story centers around. I really loved Sydney in Vampire Academy and love her more in Bloodlines. Eddy, Jill and Adrien all brought something to this story and I am so glad Richelle decided to write this spin off. These were some characters I wasn't ready to let go of, and a world that I loved. I loved the look we go into Sydneys head and her life. I also really liked seeing Eddy he had it rough but he is so dedicated to Jill and his job. I hope as this story continues that things get better for him. The relationship between Jill and Adrien is kinda cool too (don't go jumping to confusions) lol. Sydney has a lot going on, trying to protect her sister, and do her job while not seeming to friendly with the others, and dealing with another alchemist that is trying to ruin her. I think she managed to handle herself well and I for one can't wait for the next book and more Adrian..Oh how I love him! I give this one 5 stars and strongly urge you guys to read it.
