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.

It was fine. I'm over being disappointed in Mead for consistently turning out formulaic junk. She's writing like 1500 books at a time, so what can you expect? My feelings have settled into a comfortable resignation. It was a let down after Bloodlines - hence my petty, mean-spirited two star rating - but I'm still willing to give the next book a try.


Sigh.

Just for the record : Mead is one of my all time favorite authors. She doesn't just pen characters, shee is a word dr. Frankenstein (it's alive!)That said... This book is really more like ~~ 3.5I wanted to love it... tried to love it ... but as I've been swept away by the 'sequel' parade (Boundless, Unravel me, Scarlet...), this one was a bit of a let down. Lots of luv. Lots of action.I'm not sure what really went wrong with me and this book. It was... I don't know... flat compared with the others in the series. Also (as I've stated before), Mead is always so predictable. I think she thinks her readers are dumb (but instead it just makes the "intelligent" characters seem obtuse). But, then again, the book definitely had its moments. To be fair the book might not have fallen flat if I hadn't raise the bar so high.read more

Can I just say how much I LOVE this series??? Cause I do!1. Adrian. Need I say more. He alone makes it good enough for anyone to pick up this book.2. Plot. It’s really good and weaved well with the characters. I’m excited now that certain developments have happen, to see where the story will go.3. Love interest. It does go back to Adrian but don’t you think Adrian deserves his own spot? Yes, right? The love between these two is going somewhere and I like it. I love the way Adrian in manipulative in what he wants. When this boy knows what he wants, he goes right after it!4. Mystery. The mystery of certain somebodies kept me in the book. I like that Adrian and Syndey had to work together in order to accomplish goals. Hey, the more time they spent together, the better 5. The end. I think the end opened up doors for some wide possibilities With new characters coming into the story, I’ m anxious to see how Syndey will react in all of this. Will she back out? Or will she become even braver?The Indigo Spell is a fantablous book full of great writing you can never get enough of. Impressive action and great plot twist, The Indigo Spell is brilliant. Ms. Mead keeps the reader engaged, maintaining a pace of excellent characters and plot. Pleasing and a page turner, The Indigo Spell rocks!

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Richelle Mead? Man, she is a genius and a magician and is just amazing. The Indigo Spell was just as wonderful as The Golden Lily, if not more so. I loved this book immensely and cannot wait to see what happens in The Fiery Heart. The ending of this book left me OMGing; I just didn’t see what was going to happen. Of course this is a testament to the skills that Ms Mead has.I have very strong feelings for Sydney and feel extremely sorry for all of her life issues. She is an amazing character and watching her grow and seeing her ideals change with each book has been fantastic.Sydney Sage is an alchemist, but in The Indigo Spell her whole life is being questioned when she finally tracks down Marcus Finch. Following clues and using her witchy powers, Sydney goes it alone and meets Marcus. Scaring the bejeezus out of everyone, they realise they have the possibility of being on the same team. Sydney now needs to make the biggest decision of her life and work out where her loyalties lie. Everything she has ever known is in question and she is holding onto that last thread until the last second.After the incident with Adrian, Sydney is avoiding him, but they seem to keep getting thrown together. When Ms Terwilliger asks for Sydney’s help, this is the start of another investigation and more books of spells in the witch world. Ms Terwilliger’s sister is getting into mischief and Sydney is the only one that can help, but Adrian has to help keep Sydney safe. Trying to go undercover, Sydney and Adrian are in search for Veronica and to stop her before she kills any more young witches.Sydney has to help keep Jill safe, find Veronica, decide if she will join Marcus’s Merry Men and steal surveillance footage from the Alchemists security room. All the while, trying to work out what her feelings for Adrian really are and decide if she can overcome her feelings or say bugger it all and give in to them. Sydney is really surprising me in each book; she seems to be using magic more and more and letting her prejudice slide more and more.I loved the spirit walks that Adrian and Sydney share, they are my favourite scenes. Adrian is such a sweetheart and I feel so bad for him, he seems to be having such horrible luck with love. This is my favourite Bloodlines book to date and I cannot wait for book four, November cannot come quick enough.

Indigo Spell cast its spell on me, that is for sure. From the first page, I didn't want to put it down. Adrian is hot as ever and comes out with lines like this:Because I can't help doing it. And hey, if I keep loving you, maybe you'll eventually crack and love me too. Hell, I'm pretty sure you're already half in love with me." p. 30Remember--no matter how ordinary things seem between us--I'm still here, still in love with you, and care about you more than any other guy, evil or otherwise, ever will. p. 30 So, yeah. I am glad that he is in the process of getting his happy ending. Because, surely Richelle can't be that cruel and not eventually get these two together, right?? Right??? The pacing is awesome. There are multiple plot threads going on, but it kept me on the edge of my seat and I began to see how they all worked together to help Sydney become stronger and discover who she wants to be, instead of who she has been told to be. There are some steamy moments, that I wanted to read over and over... To put myself in Sydney's body because then Adrian would be talking to me, touching me, thinking about me, and loving me. I should have just stopped before the last two pages, because then I would have been okay waiting a bit for Fiery Heart. (well, who am I kidding? Even if neatly tied up, I would still want more Adrian and Sydney) But of course, Richelle had to be a little mean and throw a huge obstacle in their path. One that I have no idea how they are going to combat. Non-stop awesomeness going on. There is magic, hot Adrian, a new mystery character, kick ass Eddie, and Sydney is changing so much! I loved watching her come into her own, and want to think for herself.Bottom Line: Great installment in a must read series.
