Bloodlines the Indigo Spell (Bloodlines (Mead - Hardcover))

The Indigo Spell - Richelle Mead Eeppp... What?! SIX BOOKS? Er... Okay. I'm late for the news. Or maybe I just forgot all about it... But seriously? Six Books? What would happen? Sigh. REVIEW:For the last three books... Of course, including this one... I always gave out 3 stars... I am a very big fan of Vampire Academy in which Bloodlines originated from. So I feel kinda bad that I'm not rating this series higher. I wanted to... but there's just something in this series that really bored me to the point where I read this for days, one time, for a whole week or two. But although I got bored by this book, yet again, I think this one is a bit better than the last two. Well, yes, I still rate it 3 stars. The story or plot is not that appealing to me. I do read magic stuffs, I read magical stuffs, but ugh. I don't know. I can't explain WHY I am not gushing over this series.I like Sydney Sage even before this spin-off. And who wouldn't like Adrian Ivashkov? Of course I do too. So when they were introduced in the Vampire Academy series... I feel like I know them already before Bloodlines start. SO, imagine, in this book, I feel like I didn't know them AT ALL. I feel like the characters were re-written all over again. But maybe, that's just me feeling that way. Cause I certainly got friends who liked the books. I like how story got something going on. I mean actions. And thrill. Oh. I think that's what's missing. VA is full of actions and thrill whereas Bloodlines is more like... theoretical, if it were based on lessons. And I am NOT a fan of theoretical subjects. I want the actions. Oh yeah, I like how Sydney finally decided to go a BIG STEP higher. How she finally thinks for her own good and for her loved ones. I like that she finally embraces things. I was like, "Finally!" and I kinda don't like it when she's being stupid. lol. Well, that's geniuses for you. Stupid when it came to emotions. I hated how she's so undecided about Adrian. There's this line of Adrian, too, saying that Sydney was giving him 'mixed signals'. I was like, 'Huh. Remember Rose? You told her that too, Adrian.' >.< Anyway, for fans of VA and Bloodlines, a definitely must read because it's so much better than the first two in my opinion. That's saying something. :P
