Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the 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 finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.
Well, I think Mead nailed it on the head with Indigo Spell. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The light hearted way that Adrian just kept at Syndey, to me, was fairly hilarious. Sydney's use of magic should become more interesting in future books. I'm interested to see if she really embraces that part of herself, which I am sure she will or Mead wouldn't have written it in to begin with. I'm assuming that Alchemist's originally used magic but probably started weaning it out of their general population for fear of becoming like the Moroi, the thing they fear the most. Anyways, I won't ramble any more. I just wanted to say that I loved the book and thanking all the higher powers that she releases more than one a year.. I just received her new novel that comes out in the summer "Gameboard of the Gods" that I believe is more of a dystopian Adult novel. I'll report back with my findings on that one later.
