 Goodreads Summary:
The epic conclusion to Richelle Mead's New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series is finally here...

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.

After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.

 Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. Richelle Mead. Since reading Vampire Academy, I have simply fallen in love with her writing style. She knows how to get in a characters head. She is amazing at world building and characterization. And she can write a romance that you agonize over like nobody's business

2. The protagonists. This story is told from Sydney Sage's point of view. She has such a unique voice as a heroine. Really different from most female leads. Methodical, logical, intelligent and loyal. In the bloodlines series we have seen how she breaks out of her shell and also how her qualities help her out as a person and make her special. Adrian Ivashkov, the male lead. Who is a pretty legendary character since Vampire Academy. Smooth, sarcastic, sophisticated and  tortured artist with a fun sense of humor. I can't get enough of Adrian.

3. The secondary characters. What I love about a Richelle Mead book is that her secondary characters are not just props in the background. They all have such unique stories and I am dying to see how things conclude for the secondary characters in this series, such as Eddie and Jill, to name a few.

 What do you guys think? :)
