Review: Bloodlines - By Richelle Mead

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.
I've been avoiding writing this review for a few days now. I figured now is a good time to finally sit down and get my thoughts out. Honestly as I was reading I was constantly torn between a four and five star rating. The Vampire Academy fan in me couldn't even imagine giving anything written by Richelle Mead anything less than four stars that's for sure. But was this book worthy of five? I think what we have here is a classic case of a filler novel. Not a bad thing of course. Although a little annoying. I understand the need to really get close to a whole new set of characters and the importance of familiarizing ourselves with a whole new world, but that tiny part of me that still clings to the old Vampire Academy ways found it hard to stomach at times. I wanted MORE!!! I NEEDED more!!! Where's Dimitri? And this new less confident Adrian? Meh. All that aside... The story was pretty awesome. The mystery kept me guessing.(Always a plus) And the ever important ending. OMG the ending!!!! Yup that just sealed the deal. Richelle Mead you clever clever author you!!!! The book ends with two words!!!!! And those two words!!! Well what can I say??? Not gonna spoil it for you guys lol! Just go read this book! Love it like I did! And wait ever so impatiently for the next one just like I am! lol! Five stars from me! I just had to give it the best rating possible. I couldn't possibly give it anything less! So when's the next one coming out again?


  1. I fell in love with this book based on its ending too. It was amazing! I definitely agree with you on the filler novel. It was a bit of a let down in comparison to Vampire Academy, but I still loved Adrian and know that the story will pick up as the series progresses.

  4. Two words for the ending? Sigh. I need to read this and now I'll literally have to forced my fingers from skipping to the end.

    I'm so hesitant to read this even though it's been on my shelf for weeks. I think it's because I adored the Vampire Academy series so much and I'm so afraid this series won't live up to. I was never horribly impressed with Adrian or Sydney. Now I'm more nervous.
