What the community says about Bloodlines

    "This was a fantastic novel and I highly enjoyed it and would recommend it to others. It is the first in a series so there's plenty more to follow, thankfully! This book was definitely a wonderful time passer, very interesting and engaging, and I cannot wait to get the next book in the series- I already ordered it off Amazon! I would give it 5/5 but I found the plot line to be a bit slow to get into so I nicked off half a star just for that. Either way, definitely a front runner for this list."

    "This is another strong read by Richelle. Set with Sidney sage as an alchemist who hates vampires, it shows her growth as she grows to accept them. I love the fact that the author brought back some of the more memorable characters in previous novels. Truly a great read for all ages. "

    "I read the Bloodlines, a young adult fantasy romance book from the series Bloodlines during a long flight back home. I had actually bought it for a friend, but ended up reading it myself as it's so beautifully written. The book illustrates the characters very well and brings out the true essence of the story."

    "My middle schooler got assigned to read this book and he has really liked it. He says it's one of the best fantasy books he's ever read. I think I will buy him the next book in the series since he seems to like it so much."

    "Bloodlines was really enjoyable! It is a young adult fantasy, but I still enjoyed it even though I am 42 years old, haha. It is a fun story."

    "Oh, how I love this Bloodlines series of books! It's all about a secret society that keeps the vampire world hidden from the view of humans. This first book in the series was ca very exciting read and I look forward to more of them!"

    "This is a great entry featuring vampires for young adults. In this book, Sydney goes undercover at a boarding school. The characters are fully realized and the supernatural elements are handled well in a non-campy manner."
  • Andrés Ochoa

    "Alchemy is definitely a fairly prominent theme in this book, which cannot be said of many sorts of works, so if that is something you absolutely need to have, give it a shot. The book also is about romantic relationships between school-age vampires and other supernatural beings. Some of the author's previous works on these topics have been panned, but this particular sub-series seems to be a bit better. Maybe try it if you are particularly interested in alchemy-related stories with drama-related undertones."

    "I'm not a big fan of fantasy books or vampire books so I didn't really care for it."
  • Madison Black

    "Bloodlines would make a great novel for best novels with a vampire story line being that it's about a secret society of vampires. The vampires in the novel are trying to hide their secret society away from the humans. "

    "Very intriguing cover pic and title. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. I found it to be suspenseful and easy to follow. I quite like this fantasy romance series."

    "Bloodlines is right up there with Twilight as one of the best series out there for teens regarding vampire fiction. Vampire fiction is still going hot right now. It's so cool to read this."
  • Jim Gao
    Written on April 14, 2018
    "This is a mindless tale of vampire regency that seems to play off of the Twilight, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries craze of the late '00s. Steering children away from literary fiction and into the realm of fantasy, there are much better adventures to be had than this mess, most of them containing the kind of romance and action that hormonal teenagers crave. Steer clear."

    "Good choice. This book gets 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon reviews. Only 4% of the reviews are below 3 stars."

    "While this is a great YA fiction novel Richelle Mead is not an author from the UK, so this does not fit the topic you are looking for. However, she does write many novels, though not this one that take place in the UK."

    "I was working 8am to 7pm shifts for the past few years and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the evening with my wife who stays at home with my four kids. I was looking for something exciting and special to share with my wife to show my appreciation for all of her hard work and dedication to the family. From my young adulthood, I rediscovered this amazing novel called "Bloodlines" by Richelle Mead. My wife is an aspiring novelist herself, so she is learning a lot of writing techniques by reading this extraordinary tale about the alchemist Sydney who is protecting the princess Moroi in California. My wife loves the Bloodlines tale and is constantly rereading it! Thank you Bloodlines!"

    "I got this book for my daughter to read on our road trip across country. She said she enjoyed it overall and that she wants me to pick up other volumes in the series. I guess that's a decent endorsement, however, she can't stop talking about the main character which is what really grabbed her and kept her reading through to the end."
  • Mildred Garrett

    "Bloodlines is not a book I would put among the best in this category. In fact, I wouldn't even put it among the best of Richelle Mead's books in this category. It is underwhelming and there are far better options in these genres, including from Ms. Mead."

    "Creepy as all get out and not really romantic imo. I'm pretty done with these "romance" books that are really just portraying manipulative and emotionally abusive relationships in a good light, like it's something to strive for."
