Adrian and Sydney! Married! But there are major issues impeding on their happiness and their ability to live a normal life. When this book begins, they are cloistered at the Moroi Court with Adrian’s mother. However, surprises occur and everything changes.
This has been a great follow up to Vampire Academy. I almost loved this more, particularly the very end. I am #teamadrian all the way and reading about him being this happy just made my heart swell with joy.
If you loved Vampire Academy then this is a must read series! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
This book drove me CRAZY!! It is so high energy the whole way through. Nonstop action that lasts till the last line in the book.
Sydney is captured by the evil Alchemists. At least, these particular Alchemists are super evil. When I started reading this, I honestly became really stressed out by the situations that Sydney and Adrian were in. Everything seemed so hopeless. However, I continued to read and I was not disappointed. Their strength and perseverance won through and helped me see the light at the end of all this darkness.
There are a few major surprises at the very end. Some are incredibly happy and, one in particular, well, I’ll find out when I finish this series soon. One thing is for sure, I am so happy I gave this series a go. If you loved Vampire Academy then this is a must read.
Richelle Mead!!! What have you done to me? I am in the big feels, the deep feelings of feels so much right now!! ADRIAN!! The Center will hold! I promise! Right? RIGHT??!!!
Wow, really though, I’m a mess after this book! Much of my “mess” feeling is because this book was not only told from Sydney’s POV but Adrian’s too. Technically, Sydney is still working with the Alchemists, although her eyes are now opened to their schemes. Her life has taken a new direction, a direction away from the hardcore rules and rigid beliefs of the Alchemists. Things are definitely complicated, especially with her little sister working with her now.
One thing that really blew my mind while reading this was the direction Mead took with Adrian and his use of Spirit and connecting it to mental health, particularly bipolar disorder. This was done so well. It is so similar to actual conditions that many people go through on a daily basis, medicated or not. I really respect this wise attention to these significant details.
I love this series! I highly recommend it! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
