I am delighted to share this wonderful review, written by one of my very talented and gorgeous students, Maddie. Please make her feel welcome!
Bloodlines is a spin off from Richelle’s other series called Vampire Academy. Vampire Academy focused on one character called Rose. Bloodlines gets Vampire Academy’s secondary characters to take centre stage. Bloodlines has an entirely new plot line & it is not a continuation of Vampire Academy. Bloodlines has a few key plots from Vampire Academy but the book can be read regardless of having read Vampire Academy or not.
Bloodlines is written in typical Richelle Mead style i.e. intrigue intermingled with humor and romance. Bloodline is designated for young adult readers. It could make an interesting and easy to follow plot line that can amuse any one that decides to pick it up.
The books greatest strength is it’s character development: Two of Vampire Academy’s best-known characters become leading characters and not surprisingly Richelle Mead does her trick again and creates a believable, emotional and vibrant environment.
The story is filled with action, reaction, counter-action and drama. It fascinates, excites and it does entertain Vampire Academy fans will embrace the new story. The author hints to that there are more fascinating things to come in the next book of the Bloodlines series.
