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.

    "Ms. Mead Does it again"
    Would you listen to The Indigo Spell again? Why?

    because the story is as amazing as the previous ones both in the bloodline series and in her other works...


    What did you like best about this story?

    how the characters evolve both in relation to each other and personally


    Which scene was your favorite?

    i can't tell without spoilering


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

    i was wearing a big smirk along with my headphones in public several times :)

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "fun, easy read"

    This was a quick mystery/adventure, fun, and it made me laugh at loud at points. Definitely enjoyed it.

    That being said, I am a bit worried. Mead just keeps adding more and more conflicts and more and more characters without following through on some of the earlier conflicts and characters she introduced but never resolved in the first two books in this series. This is shaping up to be a big mess. It really felt like a digression away from the main problem in the series that Mead set up in the first book. Characters that had been central in the other books, only appear briefly in this one, and I'm worried that this series is just flying out in too many directions at once to be manageable.

    "Well done, Ms Mead!"

    I really liked this book. I think it is the best yet (The Vampire Academy and Bloodlines).

    No love triangle.....well done, Ms Mead! For a moment there you got us worried. Great save.
    Sydney has come a long way, it feels like the girl whom Rose met skipped two books and now is back!
    And Adrian, well , I just don't have the words to express all that he's become. Two words then, just lovely.

    I can't wait for the next installment . :)

    "Great Addition to the Series"

    In this installment Sydney and Adrian work through their issues. Sydney is forced to face her desire to use magic and seriously begins to investigate what is really going on with the Alchemists. She meets Mark, a man who has escaped the Alchemists and has broken his tattoo. Jill & the others are doing their thing in the background also.

    "Great Continuation"

    This book was a great continuation of the story in the previous books. I love Adrian and Sydney's interactions. There was tons of action, as there were several different storylines going on, and there was also quite a bit of advancing of Sydney and Adrian's relationship. I liked the addition of new characters while not forgetting the old ones. The narrator did a good job and was consistent with the previous books she's narrated. I can't wait for the next book.

    "Love the book and story, Only had one issue"
    Where does The Indigo Spell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like this author. When ever one of her books is released I will purchase it. I can't say that about other titles and authors I have purchased


    Any additional comments?

    The one item I have an issue with, is I have either read or listened to all 3 books in this series, if someone was to just purchase this book, they would be able to understand it. In saying that I felt like there was to many flashbacks to explain the parts. It made the story a little lacking and long, take out all the stuff I already knew from the prior books and this book could have been 2 hours long or about 1/4 of the book only.
