Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
After a 4 year hiatus, Richelle Mead is back and picking up where she left off in the Vampire Academy series. Bloodlines is written from Sydney’s perspective. Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, an ancient group sworn to protect humans from Vampires. Because of her “close” association with a dhamphir (a half-human/half-vampire) in the Vampire Academy books, Sydney’s place among the Alchemists is tenusous.
However, Jill Dragomir – the fifteen-year-old sister to the Moroi queen – has been attacked and needs protection. Sydney is asked to room with Jill at a prep-school in Palm Springs, California acting as her older sister.
The “easy” assignment turns out to be dangerous – to the point Sydney nearly dies.
Will she be able to protect Jill AND herself at the same time? The only way to find out is to pick up the book!
Bloodlines sequel, The Golden Lily, is due to release June 12, 2012.
