Book Review: The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
“You're my flame in the dark. We chase away the shadows around each other.”
In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she struggles to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do.
Then she finally tracks down the elusive, enigmatic Marcus Finch—a former Alchemist who the organization denies exists, and who lives in shadows, on the run. With Marcus’s help, Sydney realizes that the group she’s been loyal to her whole life has been hiding the truth from her. Is it possible that her golden lily tattoo might have more power over her than she thinks?
As she struggles to come to terms with what that might mean, Sydney is compelled to use her growing magical powers to track down an evil magic user who is targeting powerful young witches. Using magic goes against everything she always thought she believed, but she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her special blood—or else she might be next.
Forging her own ways is harder than Sydney ever dreamed. Maybe by turning off her brain—and following her heart—she’ll be able to finally figure out where she belongs.
I think I’m one of the few out there, who’s loved Sydney from the beginning. I love her analytical and sharp mind. I found her social awkwardness endearing and hilarious, but in The Indigo Spell, Sydney comes into her own! She’s had a lot of changes and upheavals in her thinking, and I think she’s grown so much from the Sydney we met in the Vampire Academy series. Even though, I’ve always loved Adrian from the beginning, I never thought of him as viable boyfriend material. He was charismatic, but all over the place. In the Bloodlines series he’s grown so much, no longer is he the spoiled and pampered playboy. Not that he’s lost his mischievous edge, he just thinks of more than himself now. First and foremost, he thinks of Sydney:
•“Well, you can think what you want, so long as you remember—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.”
•“No one’s going to throw you around and get away with it,” said Adrian.
“What happened with us has nothing to do with you,” retorted Marcus.
He was so sweet and protective over Sydney, I had a big smile on my face, and I was basically doing a happy dance throughout the book!
I’ll rate this one with:
