From Booklist

After the events of Indigo Spell (2013), in which Sydney proclaimed love to Adrian, Sydney has chosen to be a witch instead of an Alchemist. With her realization that Alchemists—charged with keeping vampire secrets, and humans ignorant about vampires—are not necessarily the good guys, she defies convention to be with Adrian in a taboo human-vampire relationship. Keeping their romance secret isn’t easy, though, as her little sister has been sent to apprentice as an Alchemist with Sydney. Told in alternating chapters narrated by Sydney and Adrian, the novel charts the two characters’ struggles as Adrian tries to tamp down his abilities to both heal and compel people—or risk slipping into darkness. Mead’s spin-off from the Vampire Academy series is just as rich and absorbing. This title in particular stands on its own and could serve as an entry point for curious readers, who will then be hooked by the grim cliff-hanger ending. With the continued popularity of the franchise, and the impending Vampire Academy film release, it might do well to stock up. Grades 9-12. --Courtney Jones

More About the Author

Richelle Mead is an international bestselling author of over twenty-five books for both adults and teens. Her Georgina Kincaid and Dark Swan series take a witty but edgy look at the paranormal while her sci-fi Age of X series shows us a future with no religion. Over on the young adult side, Richelle has written the much-acclaimed Vampire Academy series and its spin-off, Bloodlines, about a secret society keeping the vampire world hidden from humans. Her latest project, The Glittering Court, takes place in a fantasy world inspired by colonial America, following the adventures of three impoverished girls trained up to be "ladies" who can make advantageous marriages in a dangerous new world across the sea.

Richelle's books have been on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and received honors from the American Library Association. Her books have been translated into over two dozen languages, as well as adapted into graphic novels. In 2014, Vampire Academy was made into a feature film. A lifelong reader, Richelle loves mythology and wacky humor. When not writing, she can be found spending time with her family, buying dresses, and watching bad reality TV. More at:

I've been excited to get my hands on this for several days - even to the point where I almost blew off work just to read it! While not quite as good as the last, the 'Fiery heart' was a great followup to the bloodlines books. We even get a cameo from Rose, Lissa and Christian!

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!

Richelle Mead delivered another wholly satisfying read. It was intense, exciting, sweet, tender, and shocking. I loved every moment and am eager to read the next book. :)

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.

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.
