Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Even before its release, this Bloodlines novel has been generating major fan buzz. Followers of the series know that Sydney Sage is standing at the threshold of a new life, even though she must keep her decision secret even from those she holds most dear. The Bloodlines faithful were also riveted by the news that author Richelle Mead had confided in an interview that The Fiery Heart would be told from the point of view of Adrian, sparking talk about what they could mean to plot directions. And as if all this anticipation isn't enough, readers of this spin-off series are excited that the first Vampire Academy film is due just a few months away, in mid-February.

    Preordering is NOT worth it

    Second time that I have preordered a Richelle Mead book and the second time I have been unable to read my book when it should be available. I said last time I would never preorder, but I mean it this time! Richelle is my favorite author and I think she deserves better than this! I may just buy a kindle now.

    It's been a week since I finished The Fiery Heart, and I'm still

    It's been a week since I finished The Fiery Heart, and I'm still nursing the remnants of a massive book hangover. I loved it so. much. Each new Bloodlines book is better than the one before it, and I think I love that fact the most of all.

    Sydney and Adrian are finally together, but hanging out has been made infinitely more difficult since Sydney's little sister Zoe joined up with the Scoobies in Palm Springs. Every move Sydney makes is scrutinized, and if it got back to their dad or the other alchemists that not only was Sydney an honest-to-goodness witch now, but one that's in love with a vampire, Sydney would be sent to reeducation.

    Once again, there's more than one main story happening in The Fiery Heart. First on my list was the romance between Syd and Adrian. At the end of The Indigo Spell, she finally gave in to her feelings for Adrian and I can't even tell you what a relief that was. Syd is so strict and uptight and stuck on the rules she was brought up to believe blindly that it was a hard fought win. And now that she has her prize in Adrian, finding time to spend with him is nearly impossible thanks to her sister. Yet Adrian and Sydney are determined to make it work - to "hold the center."

    The second main story is the one centering around Sydney trying to find the right recipe to replicate Marcus' anti-alchemist tattoo in quantity so that he can help more alchemists escape from their oppression. This process was awesome to read about as Sydney uses her smarts to figure out all the missing pieces to find the right mixture for the ink. I loved that part and the possibilities it creates.

    The third main story was about Adrian's battle with spirit. It's starting to bring the crazy on, and his mood swings have reached epic levels. He could take drugs to lessen the effects, but then what if someone he cares about needs his help?

    One of the best parts of this book is the dual POV. For the first time ever, we get to see inside the wonderfully complicated mess that is Adrian's head. Sometimes his mind is a little batty. But, when he thinks about Sydney, he is unbelievably sweet.

    The way that Richelle Mead has developed Sydney's character over not only the four Bloodlines books, but really a total of seven books now, if you look back to when she was first introduced in the fourth Vampire Academy book, it's so remarkable. Over the course of those seven books, Syd has gone from a completely close-minded, obnoxious character that I honestly hated, to a brave fighter that I love so much. It's been such a gradual process, which is so much more believable than if she were to change on a dime.

    The magic, the action, the politics - it's all so, so well done. Yes, there is a cliffhanger. But it's been done well. The loose ends, except for one big one, are starting to tie up, and the ending is done in such a way that Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) is one of the most anticipated books of 2014 for me.

    Genius!

    I love how everything felt so easy just to become a total twist! That was a perfect ending. It shows that the series is just getting started. That faith will be tested so will loyalty! A great way to keep readers wanting more. Family goes a long way what will happen with the sage sisters relationship. Will zoe stop being a cry baby and stop kissing her fathers ass? & im looking back to how rose broke out of jail and just cant wait to see how they save Sydney. Great book! Though definitely a must read. Brilliant series.

    This is going to be the simplest, quickest and easiest review to

    This is going to be the simplest, quickest and easiest review to write.

    Plot: Simply put...its amazing. The movement in the story flows well along with the character setting up this wonderful world for any reader to dive into. There is lots going on in the school as well as outside of it. Once I started reading this book I became consume by it. I couldn't no..I wouldn't put it down because everything written just sucked me in.

    Love: What can I say about this relationship that has not been said. I adore the movement of the relationship and their friendship. They are so comfortable with each other. They give each other this peace..its like when they see each other, they mesh so well and know exactly how to help. Basically, I love that they are not just in love but really have a good friendship established.

    Ending: Holy crapola!! When I got to the end, I thought," No way" and "No. There's got to be more." I want the next installment already. I need it!! It has me at the edge of my seat and my mind can't even begin to function without Sydney or Adrian.

    In a nutshell, I'm in love with Richelle Mead. She writes such amazing and fantastic stories that I can never get enough of. I can be hitting the age of 50 and I will still always read anything this wonderful author writes. The Fiery Heart is without a doubt, a fantastic addition to the series. It's brings much to the table as well as opening new doors for new possibilities. Satisfying and amazing, The Fiery Heart is superb!
