About the book:

Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning...

My thoughts:

Sydney infuriates me! She is really hard to like, but I do like her, but she is so not making it easy. She really needs to get over her self and her high horse. She is just so judgmental it is making me crazy. Well now that is over and done with I can tell you that this book was awesome! I love that Mead is writing a spin off of Vampire Academy. And even though I (sometimes) hate the way Sydney is acting she is an really interesting and complex character. There is more to her then what first meet the eye. It is also great to have Adrian back in the picture. He is awesome and hopefully Sydney will see that sometime this century too. I would definetly recommend this book to everyone who loved vampire academy, because from what I am seeing this series will be just as good!

I loved Vampire Academy, I can't wait to start this one - I just won the book can't wait until it gets here! But I'm a bitt iffy that it won't live up up to the Vampire Academy series.
