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.
After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.
I'll keep this as non-spoilery as possible. Bloodlines and Richelle Mead are both things/people that you can rely on to give you an entertaining story. The Ruby Circle did just that. It was full of romance, laughs, action, and more.
Sydrian is the best ship ever. They're the power couple!! Seeing their relationship grow even more, watching their gives and takes, gazing starry-eyed at their absolute love and devotion towards one another, it was all so perfect. The romance in this book was spot-on. It didn't overtake the plot as it had in previous books. It was played just right.
There are so many cameos in this book, I loved seeing old characters come back. I love how Richelle not only brought back characters from earlier Bloodlines books, but she also reintroduced some VA characters into the plot. I missed Rose and Dimitri and Lissa and Christian and the whole gang.
I couldn't help but feel a bit underwhelmed by the plot. I was just expecting a bit more. Things were a bit predictable, but I was still entertained. I wished for more in this plot and final installment in the series. The ending definitely redeemed this book though. Never could I ever have imagined such a perfect ending as what was written. Richelle did a superb job on wrapping up the end of this book.
Overall I enjoyed the final installment of the Bloodlines series although it was a bit underwhelming.
