For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .
Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.
There is a cliff that my friend warned me about, but it wasn’t so bad. It just promised us that there would be more stories to come. Overall, this was a good series but I prefer VA over this. I’m not sure why, I guess stuck up people or Alchemists just infuriates me. Especially Zoe, I agree with other reviewers’ opinions. I wish her a painful death. Oh, and her dad, don’t even get me started on that one. What an ass!
Sydney is one of the strongest female heroine I’ve read. Even in the toughest situation, she maintained her wits about her, and her integrity. She risked so much of her own in trying to help others, when she was SO CLOSE so close to ….
Adrian had come so far in this final book. He still had his vices and struggled with it, but in the end, he was able to come through. In fact, unlike other books, he mostly took the lead in this one.
The romance between Adrian and Sydney felt real. It was passionate but not a mindless romance. There was a bond between them that you could feel. It was one that helped Sydney throughout.
Plotwise, the ending did surprise me. But, overall, I wouldn’t say it’s nail-biting experience.
