The 'Fiery Heart' sees Sydney and Adrian's relationship enter the next level and things seem to be going right for a change. Sydney begins to make a breakthrough discovery that could prove invaluable for Alchemist defectors. Even her relationship with her sister Zoe is improving. Yet family ties once again becomes strained when Sydney's Mother files for a divorce from her Father, and she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a bitter custody battle over Zoe.
The fourth installment is a little unique because we get to see the inner workings of two beloved characters rather than one - that of Adrian and Sydney. It was an interesting risk Mead took and I admit I was a little dubious. So many authors try to take that path and fail. An enjoyable series that started out with a single first-person narrator could suddenly turn into a confusing and disconnected mess merely because it's author decides to tell the story from the viewpoints of several characters rather than one.
I didn't feel that was the case here. For the most part I thought the scenes transitioned well between the two characters and only on a few occasions did I feel disconnected from the Bloodlines universe when the POV shifted from Adrian to Sydney and vice versa. On the plus side, this made the romance even more of a guilty pleasure - because we get to see the romance through the eyes of Adrian!Read more ›
There's so much going on in this book but I think my favorite thing about The Fiery Heart is the maturing of the characters that takes place. I admire Sydney more and more with every book. Sydney really has to balance all the elements of her life now that her worlds are colliding with Zoe's arrival. Her feelings for Adrian grow intense and I delighted in watching the continuing evolution of her beliefs about dhampirs and Moroi. Zoe, and the imminent divorce of their parents, prove to be trying for Sydney. She wants to be a sister to Zoe buy finds it difficult when having to deal with Alchemist propaganda - not to mention Sydney's having to hide her new relationship with Adrian.
Adrian has been undergoing a transformation for awhile but the changes he exhibits in The Fiery Heart were truly remarkable. He is certainly no longer that young man only concerned with his selfish desires. The extent to which he feels for Sydney was on full display. Even Trey and Evangeline, and Eddie and Jill show some maturity by making some headway in changing their thinking on the matters of mixing races.
Another of my favorite aspects of The Fiery Heart? Getting Adrian's POV. Thank you, Ms. Mead, for allowing us inside Adrian's head. I adored getting his side of the story. I already though Adrian was swoon-worthy but he's even more swoon-y now!
I enjoyed watching Sydney's abilities using magic improve, as well as how her opinions of the use of magic change.Read more ›
I just want to start by saying that I loved the book. It was a fast easy read and drew me in from the very first page. Sydney and Adrian have come a long way, and their journey is not over yet. This 4th addition to The Vampire Academy / Bloodlines series is another great read.
The Fiery Heart is great as a stand alone novel, however I would suggest to everyone that you read The Vampire Academy / Bloodlines novels in order. I personally challenge you not to fall in love with these books. Left with a cliffhanger at the end of the book I can hardly wait for the next addition to the series.
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 Sydney. 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 in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

This book has so much going for it. It was better, by far, than The Indigo Spell (which I liked). I liked having the alternating viewpoints, and seeing things from Adrian's... Read morePublished 28 days ago by Amy Slager

This is a review of the audiobook, NOT the story. The new narrator's voice is whiny and gross. Everything Adrian is not. Read morePublished 3 months ago by G. C. Pender
