Ok so I am a true Belikov fan, but.... Come on how can you not love Adrian in this book!!! What rose did to him was wrong! He needs someone in his life that is there for him. Insert Sydney! At first I did not like her with what went down back in Russia, but now she seems like a good Character. Very well wrote Mead. It's not the same old love triangle (cough, cough, twilight.) I think Sydney and Adrian should to be together! You know he will try. Even though she is an Alchemist, and he is a Moroi.... It's what you can’t have that makes you want it so much more.
