The best book I read this week was Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead. This is the fifth book in the Bloodlines series, and I had been waiting ALL SUMMER for it! I never read the Vampire Academy series (which takes place before Bloodlines), but I love the main characters, Sydney and Adrian, SO MUCH! Sydney is an Alchemist, a race of people who protect humans from vampires. Adrian is a vampire, and even though it's forbidden, the two of them fall in love and must find a way to be together. This book begins with Sydney trapped in an Alchemist "rehabilitation" center--which is really just a prison. Adrian is desperate to find her and recruits their friends to help. Great series and great read!

This was a tough read--brutal violence against others and characters who bring out both love and hatred. Beautifully done, but heartbreakingly so.
