Sydney Sage is an Alchemist - 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. 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 the person attacking powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood - or else she might be next.

The Indigo Spell the book we've all been waiting for since that swoon worthy kiss was absolutely and completely mind-blowing! It was a serious page turner, from the minute I sat down and started reading I knew from the very first paragraph, that Richelle Mead had delivered a spectacular read that made me feel soooo many emotions I didn't think possible. Mead had me from screaming into my pillow from to0 many emotions then a complete turnaround in other scenes where my heart felt too much for the characters that it was actually throbbing. It's safe to say that The Indigo Spell do not disappoint at all, becoming my favorite book out of the Bloodlines series.
The story picks up after a few weeks of that forbidden kiss that had so many of us cheering for. Sydney and Adrian's relationship developed ALOT in The Indigo Spell we see how determined Adrian is at winning Sydney's heart even if Sydney the girl of his affections can be very frustrating and stubborn at times, oh and let's not forget denial. Nevertheless the romance is off the charts. It was burning the house down hot and so steamy that it had me giggling. It's fair to say my sydrian feels were put through alot and I still don't know if I'll ever recover. With the banter and chemistry they have... I don't think my odds are in my favor.
I was proud of Sydney in so many moments and scenes in this novel. I think she finally evolved into the person who she was finally meant to be. We see this through her questioning the Alchemists rules and motives and finding out shocking revelations that rocked her to the core. Honestly I think this whole novel was about Sydney becoming this person she needed and wanted to be. Sydney questions everything to find out the truth no matter the cost, she constantly put herself in danger to protect the one's she cares about even if that meant coming around to her magical abilities which appears alot throughout the novel, as it becomes essential to the plot line.
And now onto the amazing, charming, witty, lovable, extremely attractive Adrian Ivashkov *sighs* There's really not that much to say that I haven't already stated above. Adrian was fiercely loyal and dedicated to Sydney, always trying to protect her and her honor! I didn't think I could love him anymore but I guess I'm mistaken. I wish I had a guy who loved me as much as he loves Sydney! That girl is so lucky! Adrian has really matured, well, as much as Adrian can. His still that same charming and funny guy but you could see the subtle changes from the Adrian who was in love with Rose to the Adrian who's now madly in love with Sydney. I can't quite put the exact change down, but I think it's how he carries himself, more self assured of who he is and what he want's. Which is Sydney, the reason for his change.
Marcus Finch! At last we get to see who this mysterious ex-alchemist is. And I can most certainly assure you that Marcus does not become a competitor for Sydney's heart. He's just a harmless flirt, nothing to worry about here guys! However we do see some intense moments between Sydney and Marcus were some alarming information is revealed about the Alchemist. I want say more on that due to spoilers.
Eddie, Jill and Angeline were a delight to read! Always very light, usually nothing very heavy going on with those characters. I find it very enjoyably whenever we got a moment with one of them. It's hilarious to watch the drama unfold with those guys! Especially with the unknown love triangle happening! That certainly played a big cared in their day to day routine. Expect unexpected twists here!
I'm sorry for this insanely long review but I could just gush about this book all day! If you haven't yet stepped into the Bloodlines world I seriously think it's about time that you do. The Indigo Spell was one sensational roller-coaster that I would not want to miss! Richelle Mead crafted one dazzling read here and I cannot wait to The Fiery Heart to see how this marvelous story continues.
