My Swoon for this week comes from:

The Ruby Circle
(Bloodlines #6)
Richelle Mead

First - The Blurb:

The epic conclusion to Richelle Mead's New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series is finally here...

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.

After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.

Second - The Swoon:

I pulled her to me, suddenly very aware of how little she was wearing and how gorgeous she looked - even after a close call with a squirrel. "Hey, you were braver than me. And look, you did it all without losing the towel."

Amusement lit Sydney's features as she let me draw her near. She patted the top of the towel, where it wrapped around her chest. "It's all in how you fold it," she said practically. "Do it the right way, and nothing will get it off."

"Challenge accepted," I murmured, bringing my lips down to hers.

She melted into me, warm and vibrant and smelling exquisitely of Sydney. I pressed her against the wall, bringing us closer together, and she wrapped a leg around my hip. I ran a hand over the smooth, perfect skin of her thigh, and it hit me that we were truly alone for the first time in a very long while.

I think you can guess what happened to the towel.

The Ruby Circle was a great ending to the Bloodlines series. I was kind of sorry to say goodbye to Adrian and Sydney, but at the same time, I liked how everything was neatly explained and that no loose ends were left behind. If you're into this series, don't miss out on this final installment. You won't be disappointed.

My rating: 5 out of 5
