"When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood."

I don’t want to spoil this book but I do want to brag about it! I loved reading every moment of this book. I adored Adrian along with the other characters.

What can I say that will do this book justice? I can say that the plot is dynamic and breathtaking. As soon as you start reading you are swept in the world that we all know feeling in our place again. The plot pacing is great with secrets coming out, betrayals happening, and a main characters who is always on her toes.

If you have read The Vampire Academy series then you will know most of the characters in this book and be introduce to some new ones. I can tell you that all of the characters are well developed. Relationships sparked up when you least expect it. Characters that you missed will be there (Hint: Adrian) and you will fall in love with them all over again!

Did this book totally rock my socks off? YES! Should you go out and pre-order? YES! I have! This is a must book, a must read for ALL Vampire Academy fans.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    Gah! I’m full of epic fail. I need to read the Vampire Academy series so I can move on to this one.

    Glad it rocked your socks off. I only wish the cover was prettier.

    I can’t wait to read this novel. I love the VA series and my heart broke for Adrian at the end. I’m glad to hear he’s getting some love action in this novel!

    Wow, great review! I love Adrian so I can’t wait to read Bloodlines. VA was one of my favourite series so I have high hopes for Bloodlines. I’m so glad you liked it.

    I got this one at BEA, but still haven’t read it. Can you read this without reading the Vampire Academy series?

    Yay for Bloodlines! I so loved this book. I think I like Sydney better than Rose. I loved the pacing too. And especially the little inklings of romance.
