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.

While Adrian did pull out some of his charm this time around it still couldn't compare to the romance between Dimitri and Rose. The difference between fire and a bright warm light. Both are great but not quite the same.

Sydney reminds me of the Cat in the Hat except no where near as flamboyant. But she can stand on unsteady foundation while balancing an unbelivable number of things. All without falling or dropping anything. And she has the unfailing confidence much like the Cat in the Hat. Yet just like the Cat in the Hat I think her demise is certain and fast approaching and the chaos that will result with be just as messy.

I felt that there was much too big a deal made over Marcus. While he was completely full of himself he just wasn't that amazing. In fact I found him rather annoying and will be glad to be rid of him.

Still a great read with great characters. I am so glad the wait isn't too long for the next book. How will Sydney get out of her current predicament and is there any possible future for Adrian and herself?
