Bloodlines is a book series by Richelle Mead. It is a spin-off of Mead's Vampire Academy series. The books follow alchemist Sydney Sage. After the incident with Rose and Dimitri, Sydney is being closely watched by the Alchemists (humans who help keep the vampire world a secret). They reluctantly entrusted her to be the main part in a cover-up plan to keep Princess Jillian Dragomir (Queen Vasilisa's recently found little sister) safe from the Moroi rebels who want to undermine the Queen's rule by assassinating her little sister.
