Review: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

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.

This book set the foundation for a really good sequel. The last 100 pages were more than just amazing and the ending had my mouth hanging open for a good 7-10 minutes, but until then it felt like one really long prologue. I spent most of the book trying to figure out who the love interest was going to be which drove me completely insane. It was like one gigantic teaser book setting us up for the actual story. I know it's not fair to compare it to The Vampire Academy series, but Bloodlines didn't hook me right away like her other series starters have. However, I have no doubt that the sequel is going to be amazing.
