Publisher's Summary

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.

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch - a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood - or else she might be next.

    "I love this series"

    Another great book in the Bloodlines series!
    Sydney is growing on me as the main character. She finally opens up to the real world and admits to herself what is going on around her; including Adrian. Now that she has finally admitted her feelings, she is trying to push Adrian away - but with an evil witch after her she needs his help now more than ever!
    This book focuses more on Adrian and Sydney, instead of the constant drama surrounding Amberwood Academy as in the previous books. There is still a fair amount of storyline to keep all the characters up to date so we don't forget about them, but to finally have some quality time with Adrian is nice.
    We are introduced to several new characters, including Marcus and his merry men - who is super hot.. to everyone except Sydney. His bright blue eyes are no match to the perfect green of Adrian's in her mind. We also find ourselves with a cliff hanger that brings a couple new characters to the 'family' at Amberwood!
    I can't wait for the next book in this series!

    Where does The Indigo Spell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5-10


    What other book might you compare The Indigo Spell to and why?

    I compare this series to Vampire Academy which is in my top 3 book series period.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Dream sequences between A & S.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I didn't want to stop listening to the book...I love that!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did a fabulous job! It's one of those books where I feel if I read it instead of listening to it, I'm not sure I would like it as much. I highly recommend this book series if you like fantasy or paranormal romance.

    "Best in the series IMO"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it was fun and had romantic without cheese.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I can't pick out one thing. It was just good if you like the genre and want to listen to an enjoyable story.


    What does Emily Shaffer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like her voices for the characters. If I did read one of the books, I think I'd imagine those voices for the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a couple of "awww!" and "yay!"s

    "One of My Favorite Series"

    The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it ended. I realize a lot of people don't like Sydney as a character but I do like her. She's a lot like me - insecure, smart and practical. I really identify with that. And that a super-hot guy like Adrian loves her - well that gives me hope. ;) I love Sydney and Adrian as a couple. They listen to each other, work together well and have faith in one another. I am really curious to see how things continue in book four and absolutely cannot wait for it to come out.

    Emily Shaffer does a great job as narrator in this book.

    Story
    "Loved it!"

    Fans of Adrian will not be disappointed in The Indigo Spell. There is plenty of Ivashkov to go around, and boy does he take you on a crazy trip! Richelle Mead really packed in a lot of action without feeling too rushed. I was surprised that Marcus Finch wasn't in the book more. He was still very important, mind you, but this was really a book that gave you more time with Sydney and Adrian. There were some really tense moments as Sydney put her neck on the line several times and I found myself actually holding my breath. One thing I love about this series is trh way that Sydney constantly battles with her inner control freak. Her idn never stops and the little asides she gives to the reader crack me up, especially when they involve something that Angeline has done:

    "I heard about the pinata. It had been for her class's cultural day, and she'd been so thorough with her papier-mâché that none of her classmates had been able to open it through normal means. Angeline had ended up beating it against the wall and had to be stopped by the teacher when she'd produced a lighter." - Pg. 101

    One thing that surprised me was the ending. It was very...happy. Not resolved by any means, but much happier than I thought it would be. All I can think is that Richelle Mead is really going to bring the pain in the next book which is exciting and scary at the same time.

    I also listened to the audio of the first two books in this series and I love Emily Shaffer's narration. She definitely embodies Sydney's uncompromising inner voice, but I have also developed a real soft spot for her Adrian. I know there was some controversy because she gives Adrian an English accent, but I am telling you that it works! When I read these books, I am still hearing that voice in my head. I really hope that she will be narrating the rest of the series, as well.
