What It's About!

There are two kinds of people in the land of Marlenia.

The Marlenians, who live on the surface, and the Freetors, who are forced to live underground. The war between them ended two hundred years ago, but the Freetors still fight for the right to live under the sun. Fifteen-year-old Kiera Driscoll embodies the Freetors' hopes as the Violet Fox. In a violet cape and mask, she sneaks around Marlenia City stealing food and freeing her people from slavery.

Then the Elders task her with a secret mission: retrieve a stolen tome that contains the secrets of Freetor magic, something the Marlnians both fear and covet. Kiera must disguise herself as a noblewoman and infiltrate the Marlenian castle. 
Before the Freetor-hating Advisor finds out her real identity.

Before her brother is imprisoned because of the secrets he hides.

And before she falls any more in love with the prince she's supposed to hate.

More is happening in the castle than she realizes, and Kiera is faced with a difficult choice. Will she be loyal to her people and their fight for freedom, or will she be loyal to her heart?

What It's About!

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

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.

Even though I haven't read the Vampire Academy series, it was very easy to slip into the world of Bloodlines. After hearing so much buzz about this new series, I knew I had to read it!

I really enjoyed reading Bloodlines, it has a nice pace, with just the right amount of events and characters. Everything flowed very well, and the relationships between the characters was very realistic. Lately it seems it doesn't matter what book I read, the characters meet one day then next thing you know they're totally in love, and it's like..did I miss something?? But with Bloodlines this was not the case.

Sydney is an amazing main character, she's strong, and down to earth and at no point did I get even a little bit annoyed with her. She knew how to think for herself and knew how to solve problems instead of just sitting there and complaining about it. Another character I ended up really liking was Adrian. Gradually he started proving more and more that he could be there for Sydney and that he wasn't just another stupid guy.

I had no idea what to expect before reading this book, but it turned out to be a really enjoyable read. I really didn't see the ending of the book coming, which was a nice element of surprise. I can't wait to read the next book!
