This is another one from the Bloodlines series that I love. The Indigo Spell is the third in the series. We pick up shortly after Sydney barely escaped the Warriors of Light. In this one, Sydney is juggling multiple conflicts. On one hand, she is trying to find out more about the secrets The Alchemists are so intent on covering up. On another hand, she is helping one of her teachers to find an evil sorceress before the woman comes for her. In addition, she is constantly trying to dodge Adrian's advances. How will Sydney conquer all these things and still have time to protect Jill?

I have been meaning to read this book for years but the length of it always turned me away! I finally took the plunge and read it. Meggie is alarmed when in the middle of the night she sees a strange man outside illuminated by the street lamps. When she alerts her father, he welcomes the stranger inside, who then proceeds to give her father a warning that Capricorn has tracked them down and will be coming for the book. Meggie and her father immediately flee their home in the hopes of dodging this mysterious villain while Meggie desperately tries to figure out the secret behind this book that her father refuses to tell her about.
