Review - "Bloodlines" by Richelle Mead

(Bloodlines #1)
Publishing Date: 8/23/11
Publisher: Penguin Aus
Genre: YA
Source: Hardcover (Bought)

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.
My Review:
(Originally Reviewed on Mrs. Papillion aka "The Book Worm")
Let me just say that Richelle Mead has done it again. She wrote a book that I couldn't put down and left me hanging. Really...Richelle Mead? You seriously have me as a FAN Forever! I love your writing style, I love the stories you create and I love the cliff hangers, you always leave. I'm going to miss the Vampire Academy series A LOT and I'm definitely missing Rose and Dimitri. Especially, Dimitri because he has always been my FAVE Male character in the series.
Until recently though...when I started reading Bloodlines and got a glimpse more into Adrian's life and I have to say...Adrian has captured my heart now and I'm looking forward to reading more about him.
I love the character Sydney and wasn't really expecting too since I didn't really much like her in the Vampire Academy series...but since Richelle Mead has finally told her story, I feel so terrible for the woman. She has been put through hell. No wonder why she is the way she is.
Bloodlines takes you into the world of the Alchemists and explaining them more. It also takes you into the world of Moroi and not Dhampir.
You get to read about some main characters your used to, like Jill (Lissa's sister), Eddie, Adrian (of course), even Rose (who appears in the beginning), and Abe (Rose's Dad)...oh...let me not forget the end of the book you'll hear about even more characters...but I won't ruin that surprise. Let's just say the cliff hanger is AWESOME and I feel terrible for Adrian. Poor guy, can't get a break.
I love the storyline in this book and what Sydney and the characters have to go through. She is in charge of Jill and making sure she is kept out of the limelight since Jill was injured...well, you learned killed later on. I won't spoil it though. I want people who haven't read the book to not know the major plot of the story. Sydney is forced to be a high school student again and also go through high school dramas again. She comes across something in the high school that she has to investigate...she also learns that the Alchemist she has been teamed up with, isn't what he says he is.
It's a huge storyline that leaves you on the edge of your seat and you just want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.
You'll probably be furious with the ending just as much as I was...but it was a good furious.
Like I said in the beginning Richelle Mead, definitely knows how to end a book and I look forward to the next book in the series.
Can this series capture my heart like Vampire Academy did though? We'll see. =)
