|Bloodlines Series #4|
November 19, 2013
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.
In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...
But the struggle isn't over for Sygney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure--and re-education--looms larger than ever.
Pulses will race throughout this smoldering fourth installment of the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.
Overall, I give The Fiery Heart an 5 out of 5. It's hard for me to find a Richelle Mead novel that I don't like. But this one was one that I honestly couldn't have lived without. This one was absolutely brilliant. Richelle Mead took my breath away and had me on my edge of my seat when it came to how Sydney got around the problems with her sister and her relationship with Adrian. It was so beautifully written and it completely made me fall in love with the series all over again!
The only thing I didn't like about this novel was how easily Adrian slipped back into his old habits after all the hard work he did throughout the book. However, his character growth throughout this book alone was wonderful. In comparison to how it was when he was introduced in Shadow Kissed--he's a completely different character in the very best way. Bravo!
