Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

The Summary: 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.

(My Review): As always, Richelle Mead has never ceased to amaze me with her books, even with the new spin-off series. It is beyond sad that Vampire Academy had to end, but at least this next series is still set in the Vampire Academy world. Sydney Sage, an Alchemist who has been on the brinks of being put in re-education center because she had helped Rose, has been ordered to guard Jill Dragomir, who hopes of escaping some brutal and aggresive protesters against Queen Lissa Dragomir. With Jill's future on the line, she accepts the task and finds out that everything is not what it seems and everything she's believed up to now are about to be put in the test.

Bloodlines features old faces as well as new ones. Sydney in a lot of ways are simliar but different to Rose. She's persistent, calm even when people try knocking her down, never backing down to anyone and the relationship between Adrian and Sydney (who he calls Sage) is pretty unquie.
But its obvious, whether you're a newcomer to Bloodlines or have stayed since the begining of Vampire Academy, Bloodlines has sure made It's mark.

My Rating: 5/5
The Plot: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
