The Indigo Spell Review

401 pages

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.

The Bloodlines series continues to be an exciting read in this third novel. Once again told from Sydney's perspective, we are able to delve more into the world of the Alchemists. Despite Sydney's slightly annoying tics like her weight issues and ingrained Alchemist teachings, I have to say I absolutely love her as a heroine! Sydney is intelligent as well as fully capable of defending and taking care of herself. She has also come quite a long way from the first novel when it comes to her beliefs and prejudice. Most of the old characters return but the focus in this novel is more on Sydney and the Alchemists as well as the witches. The Alchemists have so much more to their organization than we've learned about previously. Although this novel isn't big on action, it is full of intrigue and the general adventure of trying to figure out exactly what the Alchemists are up to. The ending of this novel literally had my mind whirring, I can't wait to see how Sydney handles the new bomb that has exploded in her life in the next novel. I definitely recommend that you read this novel if you like vampires and magic but make sure to read Bloodlines and The Golden Lily first.
