First the Vampire Academy and now the Bloodlines series, Richelle Mead knows how to tell a story. What can I say other than I love this story so far. The cover isn’t as beautiful as the previous ones, in my personal opinion, but I still love how each cover is a particular color. I also love how the story continues to evolve the characters. Color me excited.
“Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the wolds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets – and human lives.
In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her…
But the struggle isn’t over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there’s still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure — and re-education — looms larger than ever.
Pulses will race throughout this smoldering fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.”
I got this book via the First to Read program powered by Penguin books. The book isn’t scheduled for release until August 18 of this year, but after I read the synopsis, I just had to get my hands on a free ebook okay. It sounds mysterious and thrilling. It already has me hooked.
“It’s the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.
The accident season has been part of seventeen-year-old Cara’s life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara’s family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items – but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.
But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?”
I love this series so much and when I was at school this past Spring (although considering how much snow there was sure didn’t feel like Spring) I went ahead and bought every single book in the series. The last book left off on quite the cliffhanger so I’m excited to see where this book is going to take readers as far as the war with the super-powered aliens goes. Characterization has always been spot on and despite the fact that there is so much going on, it’s still very easy to follow. I can’t wait to get to this novel.
“The fourth novel in the Saga of Seven Suns series executes a plan that has been long in the making. The final, most powerful enemy against the humans is about to be launched; how will they survive?
