The Indigo Spell is the third book in the alluring Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead.
Sydney Sage is struggling to choose between following the Alchemist beliefs or her own. A battle is raging inside Sydney’s heart… one only she can control. But will she let her feelings take control of her, or try to bury them because she’s an Alchemist?
Then Sydney meets the alluring Marcus Finch. Marcus tries to persuade Sydney to leave the Alchemists, therefore abandon her family and everything she’s ever believed in. But Marcus believes the Alchemists are hiding things from Sydney. He wants to reveal those shocking secrets to her so Sydney can make an informed decision about her future. But if Sydney chooses to leave the Alchemists, it means she’ll have to also say goodbye to her friends and her one true love in exchange for a lifetime of running…
As an Alchemist, Sydney has magic in her blood. When Sydney learns that she has magical talents, she refuses to believe it or wield more magic. After all, to the Alchemists, magic is unnatural and should never be created. But Sydney’s life is in terrible danger. An evil witch is hunting young girls with magical talents to make herself younger and more powerful. Sydney realises that the only way to protect herself is to embrace her magical blood – or she could be next.
I loved reading The Indigo Spell! I think that this one was actually my favourite out of all the books in this series. The way that Sydney and Adrian relate for me is the best part of the book. From the very start of Bloodlines up until the end of The Indigo Spell, I’ve loved watching the relationship between Adrian and Sydney blossom. When they’re together, I forget all about the mess they’re in and just watch them talk and laugh together. And Adrian makes me laugh so much! He always has something witty or amusing to say. Half of the time, I’m practically on the floor laughing! But when Adrian constantly reminds Sydney of how he feels for her, I feel like just breaking down and crying. Why does everything have to be so complicated for both of them? Why does Sydney have to be an Alchemist? I think that Adrian has come such a long way from being the heart-broken guy who is still in love with Rose. Now, Adrian is such a loyal, honest and amazing character. I don’t think this series would be as good without him. When I was reading this book, I just felt so many different emotions and got really close to all of the characters, especially Sydney, Adrian, Eddie and Jill. I also liked the fact the Sydney embraced her magical talent in this book and that added another really cool element to the storyline. I’m really looking forward to her magical talents growing even more in the next book. I loved The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead and I’d give it a score of 9 out of 10. I can’t wait to read The Fiery Heart!
