“We chase away the shadows around each other. Our backgrounds don’t matter. What we have is bigger than that. I love you, and beneath all that logic, calculation, and superstition, I know you love me too.”Richelle Mead,
I bow down to you.
I’m picky when it comes to reading YA books, especially paranormal ones, but the Bloodlines
series is out of this world.
Sydney's world is spinning out of control and the only life she’s every known is turning out to be a lie. Her mind and her heart are fighting for control and things get worse when an evil magic user is going after young witches, and now her.
Amidst all this she meets Marcus Finch, who she believes holds all the answers. Sydney begins to get pulled in two different directions– staying with the Alchemist and the only life she has known or rebelling against them and joining Marcus’ ranks.
“The Alchemist’ beliefs are my beliefs,” I said quickly.
She arched an eyebrow. “Are they? I would hope that your beliefs would be your beliefs.”
You definitely sympathize with Sydney in The Indigo Spell
. She had so many things going on– solving other peoples problems and her own. She was a great heroine and I loved that despite all her Alchemist beliefs, training, and logic, she used her heart for most things.
Another thing I loved was there was a lot of focus on the actually story. I love
romance (and there wasn’t any shortage of that) but the actual story held my attention too.
Richelle Mead puts a very interesting twist on the whole ‘vampire’ concept and it makes for a truly entertaining story.
Adrian was THE BEST.
He was funny and completely unwavering in his love for Sydney. He just melted my heart.
My favorite quotes:
“… We are not posing as a couple again.”
Are you sure?’ he said. His tone was lighter now, turning him back into the Adrian I knew. “Because I’ve got a lot more terms of endearments to use. Honey pie. Sugarplum. Bread pudding.”
“Why are they all high-calorie foods?” I asked. “And bread pudding isn’t really that romantic.”
“Do you want me to call you celery stick instead?” he asked. “It just doesn’t inspire the same warm and fuzzy feelings.”
(Adrian could have called me a damn eggplant if that’s what he wanted. Just saying.)
“Well, you can think what you want , so long as you remember– no matter how ordinary things seem between us– I’m still here, still in love with you, and care about you more than any other guy, evil or otherwise, ever will.”Adrina & Syndey: IT’S HAPPENING!!!
“I don’t think your evil.”
“See? Things are already looking promising.”
I was a little worried at first, but my girl Sydney came through.
Now, there is a cliffhanger but it isn’t a relationship one. It’s pretty big, but in a way that makes you think where they hell Richelle Mead is going with the story.
I didn’t answer to anyone, no matter the cause.
