The Indigio Spell

Author:  Richelle Mead
Series:  Bloodlines, Book 3
Year: 2012
Publisher:  Penguin Audio
Narrator:  Emily Shaffer

Goodreads Summary:
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.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.

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.
