Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she's been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California- tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.
But closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her ageold Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi- the fiercest vampires, the one who don't die. But it's her fear of being just that- special, magical, powerful- that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance Braydon, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else, someone forbidden to her.
When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney's loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.
Should she trust the Alchemists- or her heart?
Bisher gefällt mir das Buch ziemlich gut. Es liest sich sehr flüssig und ich bin froh, endlich alle Charaktere wieder zusammen zu sehen ;)
Adrian (und auch die anderen) sind wieder in Höchstform und ich musste einfach ein paar Zitate posten :D Es besteht keine Spoilergefahr (außer bei einem Zitat, aber das ist extra markiert).
(Sydney trägt eine khakifarbene Hose und eine grüne Bluse)
♥ [Adrian] "Nice blouse, Sage", he told me, deadpan. "It really brings out the khaki in your pants." (S.39)
♥ "No", said Adrian, "but Sage is convinced one extraneous calorie will make her go from super skinny to just regular skinny. Tragedy." (S.43)
♥ [Trey] "That's sugar-free syrup and skim. Don't mess it up. She can sniff out sugar and 2% milk a mile away." (S.65)
♥ [Kristin] "I think it's more like a shirt that says, 'I'm going to have to end this date early so I can go prepare my Power Point presentation." (S.79)
♥ Angeline brightened. "Really? Then we can go together!"
Eddie's look of pain returned. "No. We're going together. Not together!" (S.117)
Spoiler! (Zeilen markieren) "Sometimes it's not a bad thing to make sure, you're okay too. You might find it actually helps others."
I scoffed. "Rose always joked about your 'Zen Master Wisdom'. Am I getting a taste of it?[...]" (S.24) Spoiler ENDE!
