Bloodlines - Richelle Mead I know a lot of people were very antsy about Last Sacrifice with Adrian but Richelle Mead ALWAYS delivers. I love Sydney in this one, she's like a character from True Blood tv series who started to see the gray areas between black and white. The series is getting better since Sydney was older girl and not like the first few teenage books of Vampire Academy. Adrian/Sydney was far more interesting than ever.
