Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead

Blurb from Goodreads:

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.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series 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:

I know this will sound crazy at first but I've seriously never been a big Adrian fan. I've thought he was funny and frustrating and, at the end of The Golden Lilly, I began to like him, but I never before found him swoon-worthy. In the VA series, I couldn't get over wanting, wishing and hoping for Rose and Dmitri to be together and, consequently, I did not want Adrian and Rose together, at all. In the Bloodlines series, Adrian has grown on me but I still didn't really get his appeal other than as a good, if sometimes exasperating, friend. The Indigo Spell has changed all my previous notions and I get it now -- Adrian Ivashkov is definitely, definitely swoon-worthy!!!

Although I seriously love this series, even more than I ever loved VA, this book has really made me invested. I am so excited to see what will happen next for Sydney -- she has grown so much and I like her more (although I won't lie, the first half of the book Sydney frustrated me to no end regarding Adrian!) with every page. I cannot wait for more secrets to be revealed -- we know the Alchemists are up to no good and I can think of no better person than Sydney to take them on full force. It will be pure torture waiting for the next book, especially because . . .

***SPOILER ALERT*** Ending this review with a big time SQUEE that Adrian and Sydney are finally together, finally happy, and ready to take on the world. Except for the minor problem of Sydney's sister showing up . . .

“I don't care if you say we can't be together. I don't care if you think I'm the most evil, unnatural creature walking on earth. You can think whatever you want, go whatever you want. I'm going to just go on loving you, even if it's hopeless.”

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
