Bloodlines Review

421 pages
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. 

Another book in the Vampire Academy family! I must say I was excited to read the beginning of a new storyline within the series and this book did not disappoint. Seeing things from Sydney's point of view was definitely a different experience especially after being used to Rose's perspective. Sydney is not a big fighter and doesn't exhibit the ability to stand up directly to people. However, she does do what she believes to be right regardless of opinion. At first I wasn't a big fan of Sydney but as the book went on and I discovered more about her I found myself loving her as a character. Most of this book feels like one big mystery being unraveled and less action than I thought there would be. Sydney definitely develops as a character with the help of  some familiar faces from the earlier series. I really enjoyed this book (finished it in less than a day) and I can't wait until the next one comes out so I can devour that too. I recommend this to anyone who's a fan of the Vampire Academy series or who just enjoys a good vampire mystery book.
