Waiting on Wednesday (31): The Indigo Spell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead
Release Date:  February 12th 2013 by Razorbill
Format: Hardcover

 Goodreads Summary:
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.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series 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.

Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. The main characters. What can I say about Sydney and Adrian that has not been said. They are just EPIC. My book babies since Vampire Academy (series where they originally were introduced). Between Adrian's humour and overall awesomeness, and Sydney's adorable cluelessness in social/romantic situations due to her high level of intelligence, you can't help but want to hug these characters. They just have a dynamic that is unique in Young Adult literature that I can't get enough of.

2. The world building. The Indigo Spell would be the 3rd installment in the Bloodlines series that is a spin-off series of Vampire Academy which was amazing and had a very unique vampire lore and in the Bloodlines series we get to learn more about Alchemists, who are not vamps and make sure the existence of them is hidden to the world. I seriously cannot get enough of this world Richelle Mead has created for us, it is all extremely fascinating and fun to read about.

What do you guys think? :)
