Review #4: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Title: Bloodlines
Author: Richelle Mead
Published: 2011 by Razorbill
My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

GoodReads Summary:

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.
My mind is still whirling about this one. I know I've said many times that I'm sick and tired of vampires, but this... This was totally different and I loved it! I haven't read the Vampire Academy series, but I think I will be reading it soon. These vampires are way different from anything I've read before and the twist of human alchemist has me really excited.
I loved the characters of Sydney and Adrian. Their interactions had me laughing out loud in the breakroom at work and drawing the attention of my coworkers who thought I was losing it. The storyline was absolutely enthralling for me. Excitement plus being unable to put the book down for long enough that I barely slept and completed the novel in less than twenty-four hours is proof enough to myself of the awesomeness of the storyline.
I can't wait for the next installment of the Bloodlines series. I know I'll be telling my friends and family that are readers to pick up Bloodlines.
