By Richelle Mead
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 Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .
But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure — and re-education — looms larger than ever.
Oh Mead oh Mead.
I Have to start of by saying; I love Adrian Ivashkov more that a mother ever loved her first born child. I think Adrian and Sydney are a badass team, they really work together. They are my otp. Don't forget that okay?
TFH starts off where the last book ended, where Sydney goes back to Adrian and they become a couple and all that jazz.
AND LORDY LORD are they not just swoon worthy? Yes. Yes they are. There is so much romance going on in this book, and I loved it. Because that's what we've been hoping for since book #1 right?
There romance kept on going strong chapter. after. chapter.
Every freaking chapter was either about
1. They wanted to make out like animals
2. rip each other's clothes of
3. sex thoughts
4. sex thoughts
But because of Zoe and Jill who would have the front seat to every romantic aspect they had to be careful. But it was always in their thoughts.
Sydney have changed a lot, like really A LOT. I like that she have become her own person with her own believes, I knew that that would happen eventually. She's a smart person. But at the same time she became a bit careless in a very none Sydney way...
All that made the plot weak and after a while... pretty boring.
The best part about this book though is that's it's written from both Adrian's and Sydney's POV, and I don't think I can express in words how happy it makes me to be inside Adrian's head. He is such a complex character and he have always fascinated me. His head works in a different way because of all the spirit and that makes him the most interesting character on earth. Plus he is super duper sexy.
The only real action happened towards the end, and If you've read Vampire Academy you KNOW that Richelle Mead knows how to illustrate awesome fight scenes.
But WHY we had to wait to the end to get that? I don't know.
She had so many opportunities to make it more fierce, scenes where she could have put in a strigoi or two, or maybe have Angeline do something really stupid that would've gotten her into trouble etc. but no no, she decided to put alllll that focuse on the romantic aspects.
Back to the end. I think it ended great. Freaking cliffhanger but nonetheless amazeballs. I'm not saying I didn't see it coming because I did out of pretty obvious reasons, but I liked how it turned out. That gives me hope that the 5th book might actually be action-packed.
