Bloodlines #1: Bloodlines (2011)


Sydney was an alchemist, a group of humans who kept the balance between the humans and the vampires. when her sister Zoe was assigned for a new assignment in Palm Springs, Sydney volunteered herself in order to save her sister from the unknown world of danger. her mission was to protect Jill, the sister of a Moroi Queen, Lissa, with the intention of avoiding a civil war between the vampires. the vampires were divided into three groups, the Moroi were born vampires and alive. the Strigoi were turned vampires and undead. the Dhampirs were half Moroi and half human, often trained to be Guardians for the Moroi.

the first quarter of the book was spent on introductions regarding Sydney's background especially the distrust her father held towards her, resulted from her last mission where she worked together with a vampire. despite her seriousness and righteousness, Sydney was a lovable character. half way through the book, i was hooked and couldn't get enough of all the characters that had originally seemed so tedious to get familiar with in the beginning. i found myself rooting for quite a numerous of unlikely characters, which came as a surprise as much as the unexpectedly engaging plot. i absolutely am reading the next book in the following hour.
