Publisher's Summary

The epic conclusion to Richelle Mead's New York Times best-selling Bloodlines series is finally here....

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 best-selling 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.

Disappointed with this book

I have loved every one of the novels in the bloodlines series. I think this could have gone out with a bigger bang.

loved it!!! BUT...

what a great ending to the series!!! I LOVE this series and the end did not disappoint. the only problem I had with listening to it was Emily Shafer didnt sound like Sydney to me. she made the action scenes sound a little cheesy. But she wasn't horrible.

Better than I expected

I wasn't a big fan of the the 5th book but Richelle Mead always pulls through in the end. It was a fast paced, interesting and fun conclusion to the series. Not the biggest fan of the narrators but what can you do.

Love it

The narrators were very good. I alway enjoy listening to them over and over again. I don't have to worry about hearing untimely brake or them taking drinking while reading. And yes I have audiobook that do.

Where did the accents go

The consistency of these voices are abysmal throughout the whole series. Adrian doesn’t have an American accent, why did you give him one

a must read

honestly I'm gonna miss this series from vampire academy to bloodlines I'm gonna miss both the way I was able to hear Sidney and Adrian story with every other character from vampire Academy mixed in as well it's just mind blowing and it's so sad I'm not gonna be able to keep reading more about them and where their lives are gonna go I just I'm gonna have to use my own imagination now but it was a pleasure to listen to these books and I just hope that now that vampire Academy is on peacock and they're coming out with the series as A TV show that they put bloodlines as A TV show as well and continue on peacock after they do vampire Academy because I would love to see this story come the story come to A TV series it's just so captivating and amazing thank you fir making these books and keeping me interested.

Enjoyed (Spoilers!!!!)

Initially I didn't really think I was going to enjoy these books after vampire academy. I really wanted to hear more about the characters that I felt like I didn't get closure for in VA. I was upset with Rose about how she did Adrian but after this series I am happy for him and enjoyed his and everyone else's character development. I feel that there was more character development in this series than in VA. Overall I enjoyed this book and was happy how it ended. I would've enjoyed to hear Rose and Demetri's reaction when they were first told they could have a kid.
