Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead (Danielle- New Blogging Partner)

Summary: 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.

Review: The Indigo Spell is an excellent continuation of Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series. It is from the very first page impossible to put down as it completely captures its’ readers attention immediately.

The plot line of The Indigo Spell was utterly captivating and there were enough plot twists throughout to keep readers guessing before leading into an unforgettable conclusion. The direction that the end of The Indigo Spell takes the overall series plotline will leave readers impatiently awaiting the release of The Fiery Heart (Book #4 in the Bloodlines Series).

The lead characters in The Indigo Spell are extremely different from the lead characters from the Best-Selling Vampire Academy series that spawned the Bloodline series as a spin off; however the inclusion of such different main characters are part of what makes the Bloodline series so compelling as the different attitudes towards various situations is very refreshing to read about. Especially as the lead characters in Vampire Academy were strong physical fighters whereas Adrian and Sydney, the leads of Bloodlines, are required to relay more on either their intellectual skills or their unique powers when high pressure situations demand action. Furthermore, both Adrian and Sydney are extremely intriguing to read about and they are oddly realistic characters despite what they are. There is also a strong supporting cast in this series which have some very interesting developments occur within The Indigo Spell and it shall be very interesting to see how it all pans out.

The chemistry between Sydney and Adrian is utterly electric and despite having extremely different personalities they actually really work well together. In fact, their amazing connection and enjoyable banter is what makes this book the best so far in the series.

Overall, The Indigo Spell is an amazing read and any fans of the first two novels in the Bloodlines Series shall adore this continuation.
