When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines 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.

My Take:

May contain Spoilers-

The last we saw Sydney she was on her way home after what had happened at Moroi court, she helped Rose Hathaway and what did she get for it not a welcome home party thats for sure.  When your woken up in the middle of the night by your father you know something is up. It seems that because she ha helped a fugitive their was debate of whether to allow Sydney back in or send her to be reformed. The next thing Sydney knows is she is sent off to Palm Springs, California and attending a private school all because she told everyone she could handle it. Watching a princess shouldn't be hard especially if she comes with a body guard who is well capable of taking care of the fighting side of things. Along with the journey of course we see others from the Vampire Academy series and meet more characters, Adrian is by the far the one guy I've had my eyes since well forever and with his heart broken lets just say he tells it like it is no filter. With everything that was happening it seemed that Sydney had alot of things going on at once it was crazy to think that her job could ever get easier but she handled herself even when we the reader found out what her deal with Abe didn't see that coming at all Richelle opened our eyes to warriors who fought to protect a vampire race, with this we get a humans perspective and also get to be inside someone who has no link to someone else its just her and her thoughts. This journey is not over its has just begun and the next one should also be a non-stop thrill ride.

5/5 Stars

Next in the series:
Out June 19th 2012
