Bloodlines (Bloodlines series, book 1), by Richelle Mead
Synopsis: When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive--this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.
Thoughts: This series is a spin off from the Vampire Academy series, and focuses more on the human point of view than the vampires. It's full of surprises and shocks, just like the Vampire Academy books...and that includes unexpected deaths. There are three other books already out in this series, and the fifth is due out this summer, with the final story due out next year. Can't wait to see how all this turns out!
