Book Description

12 Feb 2013

Bloodlines: The Indigo Spell is the heart-stopping third book in the bestselling Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead, set in the world of the soon-to-be global movie sensation, Vampire Academy. A thrilling world of magic, alchemy, vampires and true love awaits . . .

Sydney Sage she protects vampire secrets - and human lives.


In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she is struggling to decide between following her Alchemist teachings - or her heart.

Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch, a former Alchemist who is now on the run. As Marcus pushes her to rebel, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought.

There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as Sydney searches for the person attacking powerful young witches, she realizes that she must embrace her magical blood - or else she will be next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 10 Feb 2013
By Sarah R
Sydney's world has been turned upside down; the Alchemists have been lying to her, the magic that she reluctantly wields seems to be growing each day and the Moroi vampire Adrian has proclaimed his love to her. With everything she'd been taught as `right' and `wrong' been completely flipped on its head, she turns her attention to Marcus Finch, a rebel ex-Alchemist that might be the key to the answers she's been seeking. But will her journey lead to salvation or re-education from the Alchemists?

Indigo Spell is the 3rd book in the Bloodlines series, which is a spin off from the Vampire Academy series. Unlike some spin off series where you often ache for another edition in the main series over the spin off, Richelle Mead has done a fantastic job of making Bloodlines stand on its own 2 feet, developing these fantastic characters whilst still containing clever cameos from the previous series, that there's no need to turn back. Indigo Spell is just another great book in the series that I just couldn't put down.

In some ways, Indigo Spell feels fairly different to the previous 2 books in the series. First of all; the series started as a repercussion of Rose's actions of the previous series, and sequential actions taken by bigger factions have been out of Sydney's control. In Indigo Spell however, Sydney takes control; at the start of the book she's dragged into big battles and Marcus' rebellion but by the end of the book she makes the choices she want to make and considering her strict upbringing, seeing her blossom into the woman she is now is incredible. She really grows so much in this book; anyone who's been unsure of her strict ways in earlier instalments will completely get on board with her in Indigo Spell.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Indigo Spell 18 Feb 2013
Sydney is feeling very conflicted between what the Alchemist's have taught her and what her heart feels after the events of the last book. Therefore she goes in search of Marcus Finch a former Alchemist who has escaped and has a way of stopping them controlling. At the same time an evil witch is targeting young women with magical powers and Sydney must master her abilities or she might be next.

The Indigo Spells the brilliant third book in the Bloodlines series which has romance, action and an unpredictable plot. While this book is excellent, it definitely felt like a middle book and I hope we get to explore more about the Alchemists world in the next book.

Sydney is much more uncertain about everything in this book compared to Bloodlines and The Golden Lily which I felt added another level to her. I also like that she is less obsessed about what she ate as I did not like that aspect of her. I love that we got to see another side of Adrian and how really sweet and romantic he is.

I hope we get to see more of Jill, Eddie and Angeline in the next few books, as since Bloodlines, they seem to becoming less important characters as the series goes on.

I can't wait for The Fiery Heart to come out in autumn, especially as it is told from the point of view of both Sydney and Adrian. I would recommend The Indigo Spell to people who enjoyed Vampire Academy and liked the other novels in the Bloodlines series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 8 May 2013
The Indigo Spell is the third in the Bloodlines Series and is by far the strongest so far. I didn't think Mead could top The Golden Lily in terms of "squee-ness" (Yes it's totally a word!) but good grief I practically needed a bucket to mop me up off the floor I melted so many times!

Sydrian is fast becoming the true Power Couple of the VA universe and they can only get better.

Indigo picks up a few weeks after the shocking kiss that rocked Sydney's core as she realised her code of ethics she has so staunchly lived by for her whole life is crumbling due a vampire with startling green eyes and an unshakeable love for her, Adrian Ivashkov.

The relationship between the two grows deeper in this book as they try to find a balance between the rules of their universe and the love bubbling under the surface threatening to overspill at any moment.

Sydney has come along way since her first appearance in the VA `verse and in particular since Bloodlines and we really get to see her shine. To put it mildly, Sydney kicks ass! Juggling her duties as an alchemist with her burgeoning talents as a witch, playing big sister to Jill and the rest of the gang and actually being able to show some restraint in the presence of Adrian (Come on girls, could you do it??) without dropping the ball is so much fun to read and creates some seriously comical moments.

The two major plots are the disappearance of potential witches in LA and Sydney tracking down the mysterious Marcus Finch, ex Alchemist and (rumoured) badass and both storylines are compelling to read and at no point does the book stutter in pace like I felt it did in Bloodlines.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead 7 Feb 2013
By Amber
Struggling to write reviews has become a common thing for me when it comes to Richelle Mead's books. I love everything about them, and I cannot contain my gushy fangirling. Since this is my review, I decided not to contain myself this time. But I did try to at least make it mildly coherent, for your sake!

- A* to Sydney's character development. If you think back to how she was in Bloodlines - or even in the Vampire Academy series - you will immediately see that she has come such a long way already, and we're only halfway through this series. I didn't have any strong feelings towards her initially, especially since she was such a different character to Rose Hathaway, but I have actually come to adore her.

I love that Sydney is now more open to experimenting with magic. In The Indigo Spell we see her perform a lot more magic, both because it has become a necessity at this point, and also because she's not completely against it like she was in the beginning of the series. In addition to being more open to her magic, she is also more open to questioning the Alchemists, who we all know are not such goody-goodies as they seemed.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how Sydney progresses in the future, since she's already much less close-minded than before. What is she going to be like by the time we get to the final book in the series? Is she going to lead some sort of rebellion? Heh. I cannot wait to find out.

- Sydney and Adrian. *fans self* You guys, you don't understand. Their scenes!!!!1!1 After leaving the pair of them at a not-so-great place in The Golden Lily, I was happy to find that Adrian and Sydney aren't ignoring each other. They're together A LOT. Their connection is so lovely, and I loved their funny scenes as much as their emotional scenes.
