About the Book

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets--and human lives." 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.

My Review of The Indigo Spell
After Golden Lily, I hoped Sydney would take on a more active role in fighting for what is right. I am so pleased that she did exactly that in Indigo Spell. Sydney really steps outside her comfort zone to fight for those she cares about, and to find out what the Alchemist are hiding from her. 

Not only is this a big book for Sydney, it is a turning point in the whole series. I think the events of this book and the discoveries made will forever change Sydney and maybe even the Alchemist and Morai world. I guess I just have to wait and see where Fiery Heart is going to go. 

My complaint from the very first book in the Bloodlines series has been Sydney’s very poor body image. I know that many people have such issues in real life, but it made it very hard for me as a reader to connect with Sydney. She had gotten much better in Golden Lily, but her improvement in The Indigo Spell had me finally cheering “Go Sydney” or more like “Go Adrian” for waking her up to her body issues. 

I have to say I love Sydney’s kick butt, take risks attitude in The Indigo Spell. While I think things are about to get hairy, I still cannot wait to see the whole gang again. Fiery Heart is defiantly going to be an action packed book. I am also curious to see how Sydney deals with complications that arrived at the end of The Indigo Spell.
