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…
I read this in a day. A DAY!
It was such an addictive read, there was so much mystery going on you just wanted to reach the end of the book so all would be revealed. The protagnist Sydney is very very different to Rose. She is alot less confiedent in the way she looks, not the most social and not the best fighter. But she is very smart.
I was so proud of myself reading this book because I was fitting to gether the clues alot faster than Sydney and I was just like HURRY UP AND DISCOVER THE TRUTH.
I really liked the relationships forming in this book Sydney and Adrian are hitting it off- or so it seems. Then theres Jill and the rest of the males in this book.
Everything in this book seemed so convenient- or unconvenient should I say. The place they deside to go to would be the one with all the murders and mysters happening. Of course, it seems as if its the least safe place for Jill to be.
I liked seeing Rose again and I hope we see alot more of her during the next books- and lookin at that last sentence of the book I’m sure we will be.
The last sentence made me really want to pick up the next book immediatley.
Fun and addictive read- if you love the vampire academy series definetly check this one out.
