#Bloodlines by @RichelleMead

Let's see where do I start?  Bloodline first off is a spin off series from Vampire Academy written by Richelle Mead.  If you haven't read Vampire Academy yet then don't start here.  Bloodlines is filled with mystery, magic, and conspiracy theories.  Like I said if you haven't read it or the VA series then you are in for some spoilers.  So Beware!  Don't read any further than this paragraph.  Just know you will love it!

The book is told from Sydneys' point of view.  Sydney is an alchemist that is assigned to the well being of Jill who is Lissa's sister.  The law states that in order to be King/Queen you have to have at least one surviving relative.  So while Lissa is trying to change the law for hers and Jill's safety, they decide to send Jill away to a private school in Palm Springs, CA.  Eddie comes back to be the dhamphire who protects Jill.  Adrian is back.  When we say back we mean back to his old ways of smoking and drinking.  That should give you a clue that he's not over Rose, who also make a cameo. 

The objective is to blend in which comes rather to hard for all of them which becomes a problem of course.  Sydney's job is to make sure that Jill ad Eddie don't break any rules and does her damage control for anything that pops up.  But of course that's not all Sydney does.  She becomes a PA to Adrian, uncovers a plot of alchemist trechury, and takes on strigoi with magic.  It's all in a days work for Sydney.  As for Eddie life is great.  He gets along with the hmans in their class and is an exeptional athlete.  For Jill everything is different.  Although no one actually knows that Jill is a vampire, she gets teased and called "Vampire Girl" by some girl in the school.  Jill hates it and misses home but new characters change all that for her.

In the end there are new friendships made and certain feelings are discovered. Bloodlines will keep you laughing, make you want to cry and make you want to grab one of them and say "WHY CAN'T YOU SEE IT?"  Read it you won't be disappointed.
