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 struggles to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she finally tracks down the elusive, enigmatic Marcus Finch – a former Alchemist who the organisation denies exists, and who lives in shadows, on the run. With Marcus’s help, Sydney realises that the group she’s been loyal to her whole life has been hiding the truth from her. Is it possible that her golden lily tattoo might have more power over her than she thinks?
As she struggles to come to terms with what that might mean, Sydney is compelled to use her growing magical powers to track down an evil magic user who is targeting powerful young witches. Using magic goes against everything she always thought she believed, but she realises that her only hope is to embrace her special blood – or else she might be next.
Forging her own way is harder than Sydney ever dreamed. Maybe by turning off her brain – and following her heart – she’ll be able to finally figure out where she belongs.
Richelle Mead you always seem to do again and again. The Indigo Spell is my favourite book so far. It’s heartwarming, cute, beautiful, full of suspense all at the same time.
My heart suffered in this book, it was that beautiful. The dynamic between Adrian and Sydney just increased so much in The Indigo Spell. There were so many moments where my heart melted and I loved them cause they were not cringe worthy, they were beautiful.
Sydney has grown so much throughout her time living in Palm Springs, and we see most of that in The Indigo Spell. We see her not only tolerating the gang but becoming friends with them, caring for them, loving them in more ways than one. She also become more strong minded if that is even possible. She starts standing up for herself and she is believing in herself even more than before that the Alchemists are not what they say to be. We also see her mind in very different places. She still somewhat influenced by her beliefs and I don’t blame her for that at all. She grew up with all these beliefs, she cannot change instantly.
Adrian, Adrian, Adrian my love. Adrian himself has grown so much since we first see him in this series. He becomes more independent. He starts to let go of Rose. The way he speaks about Sydney, to her, is just so much more passionate then when he talked to or about Rose. He changes and I love this Adrian. He is his usual self but so much, what’s the word umm strong I guess you could say.
We find out so much about the Alchemists and lets just say they blew my mind. It was excepted but not to the sense of what they were. It made the story that more interesting. As always I loved the magic that is incorporated into it. It just takes the novel to a different place and WOW it changes the dynamic in The Indigo Spell. Richelle Mead just knows how to take something to a different level. There were just so many twist and turns.
Jill reminds me somewhat of Lissa, in this book. I don’t know what it is. Maybe her ‘anger’ towards Sydney about Adrian or that she is determined. She like most of the characters grows a lot through The Indigo Spell. She is starting to become more independent in some way and I guess that’s because she also getting older. Eddie I just love him and gosh I just want to hug him and tell him everything is going to be alright. He still cares so much for Jill it’s heartbreaking. Angelina arrg my dislike for her is not at all helped in this book at all, I just want to yell at her.
There was so many moments throughout this book that ripped apart my heart. There were jaw dropping moments. I could not predict anything. I just didn’t know what was going to happen. I think that’s why I think I like Richelle Mead. I cannot expect something to happen in her stories since she just goes one way then, BAM something happens and the story goes into a totally different direction. In a good way. I also love Mead’s characterisation. She does it brilliantly.
The Indigo Spell has unexpected turns and swoon worthy moments that capture your heart. I couldn’t put the book down. I just needed to know what was going to happen.
I Give The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead 5 stars out of 5
