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.

Review: “I don't care if you say we can't be together. I don't care if you think I'm the most evil, unnatural creature walking on earth. You can think whatever you want, go whatever you want. I'm going to just go on loving you, even if it's hopeless.” 

4.5 Stars! 

The Indigo Spell….wow! It’s easily my favourite of the series so far! I loved every minute of it and I couldn’t put it down. My reading has been pretty slow lately but I managed to finish this in just under 48 hours, and most of that was because of Adrian ;) Can this guy get any sweeter? 

The story kicks off with Mrs Terwilliger informing Sydney that an evil witch could possibly be after her, leading Sydney to step up her magic and try more complicated spells. Adrian is there every step of the way for her, in more ways than one – much to Sydney’s disapproval, but not only that. Sydney finally seeks out Marcus Finch where she finally starts to get some real answers about the Alchemists, but she’s left torn. Can she really turn her back on them? 

Awww I loved it! Really, I did! I couldn’t have asked for a better book….honestly, it kind of blew me away. Richelle definitely stepped up her game! What I loved was how the story kicked off from the get go. There was always something going on and it was so entertaining. The plot is getting thicker and thicker, and more scarier if I'm honest. I'm scared for Sydney, I can kind of guess what's coming and I'm worried for her. This whole Alchemist business is freaky. They moan about the Moroi and Dhampirs but surely what they're doing is wrong too? I have to say I'm excited to see the outcome though. 

As you can probably guess Adrian was a huge factor for me in this book. He continues to surprise me and as a character, he's developing a lot too. He has so much on his shoulders and I honestly can feel his pain. It's his honestly that stands out the most though and the way he is with Sydney. If I thought I swooned at Dimitri, then Adrian just knocked him off the top spot! And yes I do see why Sydney went so back and fourth in this one. It was about her coming to terms with who she really wants to be and that does take time, no matter how frustrating it was to read. 

I honestly couldn't fault The Indigo Spell and I'm even more excited now to start The Fiery Heart! I need more Adrian! Bravo Richelle!
