Page Count: Audio book
Series: Book one
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.
Unless you have been living under a rock. you have heard of The Vampire Academy, those six books were great, I had an issue with the first 12 chapters of book one, hated every second of book four and was on the mend in book five so book six I was back in "I love this series" and afraid to end the series.
I have been nervous to start Bloodlines, starting another MEAD series, which is intense, beautiful, and heartbreaking. So I am late to review this.
Sydney is bugging me, she's not Rose, and like all of Mead's MC's she has her own voice, Sydney isn't strong like Rose (or Georgina) She's human, she's lost she has a strict set of believes she has had all her life, the Moroi are the second worst things in the world, Dampire's are the third and Strigo are the worst. And Sydney is having an issue living with a Moroi and a Dahmpire, even worst she is having a hard time dealing with her boss who refuses to see them as living things. Jill we see a little bit more of Jail bate, but I can't wait to see her bloom fully as I hope to see in the second book. Adrian is back, hes same old same old but something is changing within him it seems. I love Adrian so I am totally bias against him, to me he can do no wrong. The new characters in this book, I look forward to seeing more of them.
There is a lot of plot going on in this book, so many different threads laced together and at first your like there is no way everything is going to get wrapped up, this will make an awesome series, everything they need is right hear. and then 90% of the book gets wrapped up and you have like 20pages left, thinking what the hell! seriously how is this a series. And then BANG! your left screaming and trying to fuigured out how to get the next book early.
Fact: I really enjoyed was that this book has another bordering school. I love boarding school novels.
GOLDEN LILY is out June 12th! if you have not read Bloodlines now is the perfect time.
