Its no secret how much I adore the Vampire Academy series and now the Bloodlines series, its such an amazing series and its even got pride of place on my bookshelf. This is the final book in the Bloodlines series, which was bittersweet for many fans (including myself) as we would find out how everything ends but there would be no more books. However I couldn't wait to see how Sydney and Adrian's story ended. 

I did have a few suspicions of things before I started reading the books from snippits that Richelle Mead had given us, such as, in this book we would find out who Dimitri's father was (My money was on Nathan Ivashkov) as well as us seeing Rose ans Sydney fight together for the first time ( Which was awesome!)

So the novel begins with Sydney ans Adrian, newly married but hiding away at Moroi court, that is until they are given a lead to finding Jill who went missing at the end of the last book. So of course Sydney goes off to try and find her leaving Adrian to try and keep everyone thinking that they are both still at court, but Adrian starts using spirit again ( I was soo annoyed that he did this but without the plot wouldnt have happened so im glad in the end) to help Nina find her sister which eventually they do only to find out she is pregnant, so the Jill quest gets put on hold while Adrian, Sydney, Rose and Dimitri going to a dhampir commune to find Olive (Nina's sister) whilst there Sydney and Adrian find out that the baby has come from two dhampir parents :Olive and Neil ( This isnt ever supposed to happen so its a big deal) but unfortunatley Olive dies in childbirth and shortly after this we find out that Adrian's uncle is Dimitri's dad (So I wasnt far off, but Yay! Adrian and Dimitri are related!) They take the child to Clarence's to protect it whilst going to find Jill with the help of Sydney's magic and her coven, they find Jill being held by the Warriors of Light (Really fricking hate those guys) and then they rescue her with the help of the Alchemists in return for names of rogue Alchemists (plot twist to find out Sydney's dad is one of them) thankfully everything goes to plan they get Jill back and she goes back to Court to Lissa. Adrian tries to tell Neil about the baby being his son but doesnt want to interfere in his life so his ask Sydney and Adrian to look after him as it would be plausible for them two to have a dhampir baby and not two dhampirs. The book end a year after the events at Christmas at Sydney and Adrian's where they are having an amazing life looking after the baby and being in college (Sydney) and Working (Adrian, yeah I know) and finally ending with the announcement of Rose's and Dimitri's engagement. 

I absolutely adored this book, it was a perfect way to end the series , although I did think it would end slightly differently but I adored all the same and it tied up all the loose ends the story had given us. I would highly recommend this series to anyone and if you haven't finished the series yet you will not be disappointing.

Please tell what you thought of the final book, whether you liked it or disliked it.

Write again soon
