LOVE AND LOYALTY RUN DEEPER THAN BLOOD…
Sydney protects vampire secrets – and human lives. As an alchemist, she is part of a secret group who dabbles in magic and serves to bridge the world of humans and vampires.
But when Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, she fears she’s still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. What unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir—the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir—is in mortal danger, and goes into hiding. Now Sydney must act as Jill’s protector.
The last thing Sydney wants is to be accused of sympathising with vampires. And now she has to live with one . . .
If you've been following the blog for a while you probably already know what a massive fan I am of Richelle Mead. Her Vampire Academy series is one of my all time favourite YA series but I also really like her adult books too and always stalk the shops when she has a new release coming out! So as an avid fan it feels like I've been waiting forever for Bloodlines (the first book in Richelle's new YA series that is a spin off from her Vampire Academy books) to come out. Luckily I don't have too much longer to wait now as Bloodlines is released in the UK on the 25th of August and I can't wait to get hold of my copy!!
What I want to know though is who else is desperately waiting for this book? I've included the UK and US covers for you to have a look at and I'd love to know which is your favourite. Personally I adore the UK cover and think it is going to look fab next to the lovely red covers of my Vampire Academy books. I do like the US cover but to me the UK one stands out a lot more and is quite unusual. The US version is a bit too similar to the many other urban fantasy books I've got on my shelves. Which is your favourite?
