My Review:
Once again Richelle Mead you hold my heart! I absolutely love this series. This book is not all rainbows and butterflies, Mead truly gets down and dirty with this

addition to the Bloodlines series. And I loved every single page of it!

Most of the characters that we have met throughout this series, and the Vampire Academy series are back. Rose, Dimitri, Lissa, Sydney, Adrian and the whole Palm

Springs gang are all together to take down the evil that snuck Sydney away at the end of The Firey Heart.

Silver Shadows picks up a few months after The Firey Heart and Sydney is being punished for being a vampire sympathizer. She should not love them, but barely tolerate, and she is being re-educated on how to be a proper alchemist. Adrian is at a complete loss without Sydney’s guidance and strength, and has “dropped his basket.”

Mead does a wonderful job portraying the bleak life of torture, both mental and physical, that Sydney goes through. The experiences that Sydney has parallel the emotional torture that Adrian is going through. He has allowed himself to become hopeless and helpless, until he is surprised by a secret that is revealed about his mother and father and their relationship.

With the help of Marcus, Adrian is able to free Sydney and her cellmates, but that does not end the craziness for them. They decide to get married, and not only have the wrath of the Alchemist upon them, but the sneering judgement of the Moroi Court. But Adrian and Sydney cannot enjoy their newfound happiness because the throne, and Jill’s safety is in peril, which will begin the next journey in The Ruby Circle!

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fast paced paranormal story!
