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.





OH MY GOD. I can’t believe it’s over.

It’s hard, really. It’s difficult to say goodbye to the characters I’ve grown to love. I love how thoroughly invested I was with these books. It was just too easy for me to care for them because they were really flawed and they make mistakes and stupid decisions every darn time yet still, they are all wonderful.

Richelle Mead wrapped up this series nicely, I supposed, though I feel that this was really short. I would’ve wanted to see more Dimitri and Rose. (I love them okay? They’re like one of my many OTPs) I need freaking short stories. Or novellas. I might even read some fan fictions because I was left wanting for more even though I was wholly satisfied with almost everything.

At the last pages I was like…

I can’t bring myself to read the end but alas! I reached the last page and the feeling was so bittersweet. I have so much love for these characters and I’m so happy everything turned out okay but I don’t know. Some problems were just too conveniently solved and that stopped me from enjoying this book immensely. But I still liked it so I’ll still give it a somehow high rating.

To all those who haven’t journeyed with these characters yet, I really recommend this series! (Including Vampire Academy, of course) But if you feel like you weren’t up to commit to a lot of books yet, you can at least try to read the first one. You’ll never know, maybe you guys will end up loving it like I did!

  1. So many differing viewpoints about this book! I think I’ve read some that said the ending could have been better, and some that say everything ended nicely. You pretty much echo what Jeann said but she thought it was still a swell ending nonetheless! And here I am, still needing to read the original series before I could start this and see it for myself.

  2. I am almost finished with Ruby Circle. I put off reading it, because I did not want my time with Sydney, Adrian and the gang to end. So far, I love that Mead has brought back so many characters and involved them in the story (the good guys and the bad guys). I like that she is showing how Adrian and Sydney’s relationship has evolved as they embark on married life. I am at 92% and see she is working on the loose ends for me and that is all I can ask for

  3. I’m so late about this series… I’ve only tried the first book in the VA series. I really need to continue and read more! I hope I’ll enjoy as everyone else. Great review!

  4. At first, I was confused. I’m pretty sure Paula isn’t reading Bloodlines series yet and then I found that you’re a new co-blogger! Welcome to herbookthoughts! :)

    Vampire Academy is my second favorite series! I’m not a fan of vampires but Richelle Mead’s world is just pretty amazing. And yes, Rose and Dimitri is my OTP too. I’ve been rooting for them since book two and I was so scared that Adrian will snatch Rose especially when Dimitri became a Strigoi.

    I just finished reading Ruby Circle a month ago. Sydney and Adrian – so effing hot. I love these two together and the romance is just over the top.
