"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."
Plot: Oh, how the plot thickens! Mead lays the romance, mystery and action on thick in The Indigo Spell. I really could feel Sydney's struggle in this book, between being who she was raised to be and the loyalty she feels she needs to uphold and between being herself and how she personally feels. I also, love that Mead didn't make this predictable for me. Minor things were predictable but all the major plot lines, I didn't see coming! As usual for Richelle Mead, well done.
Characters: Normally Mead, writes her books around all characters but Indigo Spell was really based on Sydney and Adrian. With Marcus and the teacher coming in a close second. There isn't a lot of Jill or Eddie in this book. The growth both Sydney and Adrian made as characters was amazing and will give readers a huge sigh of relief!
Final Thoughts: Oh La La! I didn't want to put the book down, I badly wanted to know what was going on, mainly with Sydney and Adrian but even with Marcus Finch. I am dying to know more! I enjoyed getting to see some of my favorites for the VA series in this book as well. Just to give a little glimpse into how they are doing. Overall, Indigo Spell is by far my favorite of the Bloodlines Series, so far.
