The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the two worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets--and human lives. 

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she struggles to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do.

Then she finally tracks down elusive, enigmatic Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist whom the organization denies exists and who lives in shadows, on the run. With Marcus's help, Sydney realizes that the group she's been loyal to her whole life has been hiding the truth from her. Is it possible that her golden lily tattoo might have more power over her than she thinks?

As she struggles to come to terms with what that might mean, Sydney is compelled to use her magical powers to track down an evil magic user who is targeting powerful young witches. Using magic goes against everything she always thought she believed, but she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her special blood--or else she might be next.

Forging her own way is harder than Sydney ever dreamed. Maybe by turning off her brain--and following her heart--she'll finally be able to figure out where she belongs.

"Nice to know she cares," I said. For a moment, I forgot my dance floor woes as I thought angrily back to Stanton's "need-to-know" attitude.

"I can pull you closer, if you want," he said. "Just to see how much she cares. I'm always willing to help like that, you know."

"You're a real team player," I said. "If putting me in danger is for the greater good, then Stanton probably wouldn't do anything about you moving in on me."

(I just really like Adrian, okay? You would, too, if you've read the books...)


  1. Sounds good, I'm willing to read on!
    Happy weekend!

    1. Yes, I am quite partial to this author/book/series/ship xD I read the Vampire Academy (the first series. Bloodlines is the companion, spin-off) back in 2011, and I just decided recently that I might as well carry on. I'm really glad I did! (:
