The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead Book Review

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)
In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.

Populated with new faces as w
ell as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series 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’ve been so excited to read The Indigo Spell, so I was super happy when it finally came out. It was an amazing book and I loved the romance! 

One of the things that I’ve loved about all the Richelle Mead books I’ve read are how likable the main characters are. Sydney was awesome, and I liked how she makes rational decisions and takes the time to think both different things and the consequences they will have through. I think it makes her an even smarter protagonist. For Adrian, I could seriously probably write a whole paper about how amazing he is. Although he’s not perfect, he has an amazing heart. The Sydney and Adrian scenes in The Indigo Spell also ended up being completely amazing :)

The plot moved really fast in this book, and Sydney and Adrian worked together to prevent some dangerous things from occurring. I could have definitely done without the witch stuff in the plot, but everything else was super enjoyable. Also, Sydney started to doubt the Alchemists more in this book. The pacing was great, as well.

Overall, I loved The Indigo Spell so, so much. I’m so happy for the next book in the series. The ending definitely opens up some possibilities of what may happen in the next book ;) I’d give The Indigo Spell 4 1/2 out of 5 flowers.


  1. I'm so glad you liked this! I just got it the other day and I can't wait to start it. I need some Adrian and Sydney scenes.

    1. I hope you enjoy it! Adrian and Sydney were awesome :)

  2. YAY!!! I can't wait until my copy gets here! I have heard nothing but awesome things about the improvement in this book and the characters definitely had a play in that. I'm actually worried about the witch stuff too, and since you didn't seem to enjoy it as much, I'll have to keep an open mind and see how it turns out. I am just on edge waiting to read the Adrian and Sydney scenes...I have heard some pretty hot yeah, I'm excited beyond imagination! LOL ;p

    I'm so glad you enjoyed this!
