My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the Bloodlines series, the story shifts to the perspective of the Alchemist Sydney Sage who is a control freak with OCD and an intellectual. Her world view is distorted and funny as she doesn’t see the obvious in relationships so many times with her analytical analysis. Adrian the spurned lover of Rose from the Vampire Academy series returns as a love interest. Dimitri, Sonya etc make background characters.
Rose is just a much more gutsy and exciting character to read, than perfect student Sydney.
