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 Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists.
Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive.
For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .
I need the next book. Like right now.
So much happened I don’t even know where to begin. So Sydney and Adrian have been separated. Sydney is at the re-education centre or should I say the Alchemist brainwashing centre while Adrian has been dragged back to court.
I really enjoyed Adrian’s time back at court, seeing all the old VA characters again. Although I did not enjoy poor Adrian getting drunk all the time, passing out at parties and having Tatiana whisper things in his ear. She was kind of like the devil on his shoulder telling him to do things that he knows he shouldn’t do and I can tell we will find out a bit more about this in the next book.
I am very curious how things will wrap up in the next book. I’m predicting it will be quite long as it will have to conclude all the VA characters as well as the new ones in this series. I believe this is the last book ever set in this world. I don’t think she is doing a Cassandra Clare and is releasing 5 more series set in this world. Although if she did I would be very pleased.
I thought it was really smart how Sydney stopped the gas and got the salt etc. But I knew something was going to go wrong it was to good to be true.
I was really glad this book didn’t head in a different direction in which she was actually brain washed into thinking all vampires were evil. It would kind of feel like a repeat of the Dimitri being a strigoi story line.
I really liked the scene where Dimitri and Adrian were talking, I thought it was a really unexpected scene, I don’t really think we ever see them two alone together. It must of felt a bit awkward between them but I think it was a very good scene to include.
The escape plan and how it was all written was again really smart. It is quite hard to describe how it all worked but Richelle Mead did a great job.
The last 100 pages was a rollercoaster. I think the thing I liked most about this book was the proposal and the wedding. They had two hours to get everything sorted and they were in such a rush, I could picture the scene perfectly in my head as though I was watching a movie.
When they got back to court I knew everything was going to be a bit complicated. I don’t understand how none of the others had seen before how much Adrian cared about Sydney.
Then to make matters even worse Jill has been taken.
I can tell the next book is going to be taking place in various places. There are so many storylines to tie up I don’t know how any of it is going to pan out.
Where is Jill? What parts will the witched play in the next book? What happened to Alicia? Was it really Rowena who came looking for Adrian and Sydney? What will happen to the warriors of light? Will anything develop between Eddie and Jill? And Trey and Angeline? And how will Adrian handle his spirit use?
I really don’t know but I cant wait for February 2015!
Favourite Quote- “What is it with you and girls, Adrian, dear? Why do they either mean nothing to you or everything? It’s always an extreme.”
“Because I don’t do things in halves, mom. Especially when it comes to love.”
A song that reminds me of the book- Never let me go- Florence and the machine
