My Review of Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

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.

My Review

4 cups of expresso
Let me start off by saying that Richelle is absolutely one of my favorite authors, and Vampire Academy is my 2nd ALL-TIME favorite YA Paranormal series. Bloodlines is a great start to a series, but it wasn't as strong as Vampire Academy in my opinion. That's the reason that it received only 4 expressos. I like the beginning of a series to be VERY strong. I had to fight myself to stay in the book at the very beginning, but once I was in,.. I WAS IN!

The characters are very well-written, the scenes believable, and the story rolled!! She brought some of my favorite characters for the other series into this one as the "new" main characters. Not many writers could pull this off, and as seamlessly as she. Richelle Mead is by far one of the best writers of our day!!
