Silver Shadows Review – Book 5 of the Vampire Academy spin-off, Bloodlines .
For a smart girl Sydney really is stupid. She’s fully aware she has to act according to the alchemist standard in order to get out and yet she continuously goes against them. Idiot. Thankfully all her magic is providing protection against the Alchemists.
But seriously, Sydney makes a ton of mistakes…smh!
Once Sydney is reunited with her friends, they have to constantly be on the move to evade the Alchemists. Adrian puts himself in a lot of danger with his continuous use of spirit which causes friction between him and Sydney.
It was amazing to see Adrian stand up for himself and make everyone take him serious instead letting them write him off. He even ends up being a good influence on his mom!!
I continue to love how Adrian evolves.
