Yes she is an Alchemist, and a human, but Sydney Sage has sworn to protect the secrets that lie between vampires and humans in order to keep peace between their worlds.

Though dedicated fully to her Alchemist teachings, she has experienced a moment of forbidden lust that has shaken her very beliefs. Once Marcus Finch comes along, this struggle to do the right thing may get more confusing. Marcus claims to know the ways of the Alchemists that are being kept from Sydney. He wants her to rebel against her teachers, and drawn to Marcus, Sydney is finding it very hard to break free from her past, and her very seductive present.

Indeed, Sydney knows there is something more dark and powerful in her, and she just might have to use it to protect the young witches around her, lest she be the next target!

Richelle Mead was born in 1976. She is a writer of fantasy romance and is best known for the Georgina Kincaid series, the Vampire Academy, and the Dark Swan series. Born in Michigan, she now resides in Washington state. Her degrees are in Comparative Religion and in Teaching. Though she began teaching eighth grade on the subjects of Social Studies and English, she always wrote in her free time, until her first novel Succubus Blues was published. Now a full time author, she has been able to write many subsequent novels.

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.
