Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning...
This is a spin-off from the Vampire Academy (VA) series focusing on Sydney Sage picking up right around where VA leaves off. I LOVED that we learn more about Sydney. We got glimpses of her in the other series but now we learn more and more about this character and she's growing and learning as she goes along this journey. I also LOVE that characters pop in from the VA series, so it's not like all those other folks just fell off when their series ended.
I also LOVE that we get more of Adrian from VA. He didn't end up so well in the last book of VA but now we learn more and I couldn't be more excited to follow his character along.
I say: READ THIS! Especially if you read Vampire Academy!
