Author Essay

Dear Reader,

I first came to Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series just before the publication of the third book, The Indigo Spell. I was starting a new job at Razorbill replacing Richelle’s incredibly thoughtful and talented editor Jocelyn Davies. I was nervous. Not only did I have big shoes to fill, Richelle is a Pro with a capital “P”, an international #1 bestseller, and her readers define fandom. They’re Superfans (capital “S”) with an encyclopedic knowledge of these books, which track the exquisite and excruciatingly slow-burning attraction between Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (known to readers simply as Sydrian).

I tore through Bloodlines, The Golden Lily and The Indigo Spell, utterly absorbed and transfixed by Richelle’s rich world building and the emotional complexity of the story. Terrified of disappointing Richelle and especially her loyal fans, I thought, I’m in over my head! This is too much! Too GOOD! But then I realized: At some point over the course of those three books, I became one of her fans too. And as long as I edit the rest of the series with the vigilance and attention and love any one of her readers would give it, everything would be okay.

Since then, The Fiery Heart has exploded on the scene and now I can hardly believe Bloodlines #5, Silver Shadows is here. With each book, I’m more invested — really, more OBSESSED — than before: The characters have evolved and surprised me as they face incredible challenges, and Richelle Mead keeps topping herself.

At the beginning of Silver Shadows, things are a bit bleak for Sydrian, and I know it’s tough to hear, but Hopper’s not doing so great, either. But if I have learned one thing from this series and from its fans above anything else it’s to have faith in Richelle Mead; love WILL conquer all.

Sydrian forever!
