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.
Once again, Richelle Mead delivers another fantastic novel in the Bloodlines series. In fact, I think it might be my favorite book in the series so far. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney faces quite a few challenges. She has to try to find Marcus Finch in hopes that he will be able to answer all of her questions about the alchemists. She also goes through several other difficulties, which I’m not going into because I don’t want to spoil it for those of you who haven’t read the book.
I think the Indigo Spell is where we begin to see Sydney mature. She starts to deal with heavier issues. She also begins to question everything she’s ever known. She begins to form her own opinions. Adrian also matures a bit. He starts to give up his bad boy ways, such as drinking and smoking. He becomes more responsible.
The ending of the book left me so angry and frustrated. Without spoiling anything, the book was centered on two certain characters getting together. At the end, another character shows up and will most likely ruin everything and will make Sydney’s life even more complicated. I need The Fiery Heart now! Excuse me while I go and cry in a corner until November.
I give The Indigo Spell: 5/5.
