OMFG! You guys look it's the new cover reveal for Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I don't know how many of you have already seen it, but I'm putting it up anyways because I LOVE the Vampire Academy series and this is it's spin-off. *screams* It's do out in August and you can bet I'll be right there when it comes out. I'm not sure you will actually have had to read the VA series to know what's going on in this book. I do know that it would make a little more sense with the characters probably, but none the less it's set in a different area then VA with characters that were more in the background in the VA series. So who are these secondary characters brought to the forefront? Sydney the Alchemist who is on the cover. (I'm not sure I pictured her like this. Still love the cover though and the models are not bad) and sadly they don't give us details on who the mystery guy is on it. Who do you think it is? I'm going with who everyone else seems to think which is Adrian. Although I didn't picture him that way either. I think it will definitely be different having Sydney as a main character and not our beloved Rose/Lissa/Dimitri. Seriously though is this not a beautiful bookcover? I'm SO in heaven right now. :)
To learn a little more about this series here's a bit of what was written on the site.
"Richelle Mead has graduated from Vampire Academy, her popular YA series that wrapped up in December with the release of its sixth and final book, and now she’s moving onto new territory. Well, somewhat new: Bloodlines will be a spin-off of VA, moving the previously tertiary character Sydney, a human alchemist, from the sidelines to the forefront. It will also be set in a sunny Californian high school instead of that rigid, preppy-bloodsucker academy, which I imagine will be like transferring from the Undead Poets Society to Bayside High. Check out the finalized cover for the first book of the series—that’s Sydney with the filigreed face, by the way—and watch a video after the jump of Mead talking about how it will differ from Vampire Academy. Bloodlines is set to hit shelves on August 23."
Want more go to Shelf life, and there is an author interview with Richelle Mead about the book. :)
Tell me what you think of this cover :) or the book itself. I always love VA type discussions.
Happy Reading and Blogging
