Author: Richelle Mead
From the back of the book: The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.
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.
Review: I was very upset when I found out that Rose and Dimitri's story was finally coming to an end, by this time I had really fallen in love with both of them and was rooting from the sidelines! So you can understand when I say I was overjoyed that Richelle was writing a new series still set in the same world! Yet, I was still nervous about this whole spin off idea, I mean going from a vampire to an alchemist, and yet Richelle pulled it off very well, it was a perfect new view of a not so perfect world.
There wasn't as much romance in this book as I would have hoped. There were hints of Syd maaaaybe having a crush and I can;t wait to see where the romance part of the book goes from here.
I liked the mystery involved. It kept me hooked through some of the less romantic or less action packed scenes.
I would recommend this book to: Anybody who is a lover of Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy. You do get to see them both a bit in this book and I almost hope you see them a bit more in the next. The way Richelle left it that's how it seemed it may be. But as a lover of the original series I can strongly say that this is just as amazing.
Rate:Over all I give this book from 1, I couldn't finish it to 10, unputdownable, I rank this book a 9 3/4!
