I'm enjoying this series much more than I did VA. I like Sydney better than Rose, and the whole, "Oh, I'll just pop into Lissa's head to see what's going on over there," was far too convenient and happening way too much.
The way the bond in this series works is better and generally used for comedic effect rather than a way to check in on the other plot.
All through VA I was team Dimitri, but I can totally feel the Adrian love now.
I like the way Sydney is starting to question what she's been taught by the Alchemists, and I hope she can put her prejudices aside and develop her magical abilities more.
