Review: The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

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.

 My Review 
Oh my Adrian! Ever since the Bloodlines series began I've been pretty happy for more Adrian Ivashkov and to be rid of Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (no offense to those who love them) and the third book in the series did not disappoint. I found the story a bit more spread out and not much happened action-wise but there were a ton of SYDRIAN moments so that was a huge plus! We finally meet Marcus Finch and I can't say that I really love him but he was an interesting character. Favorites like Eddie, Jill and Mrs. Terwilliger are back and as demanding as ever but you gotta love them. As for all of the Sydrian moments all I can say is wowza. Adrian is his usual swoon worthy self and I have fallen in love with him all over. Sydian has her usual moments where I think I might slap her for some of the things she does or won't do through the book *coughs* being with Adrian *coughs* but she's still one of my favorite female leads.
I give The Indigo Spell 5 STARS, mainly for the last chapter which was just perfect. Read it and I'm sure you'll agree.
