Summary: Goodreads


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. . . .

Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.


I love this series. I don't love it AS MUCH as Vampire Academy but I still love it.  I can't believe we are down to the wire and there is only one more book left.  WHY????

So I will try not to spoil anything for those of you who have not read the first books.  This is by far the craziest one and you will not be able to anticipate what will happen.  Sydney is stuck in a re-education facility and Adrien is trying to bail her out.  The alchemists are smart though and they have little tricks to break down the human spirit in order to re-mold you back into a "model" citizen.  Sydney however has something to live for and although she is physically pushed to her limit, she keeps her head and is able to survive and work her way back to reality.

Book #5 will show you just how far Syadrian is willing to go for love.  How there is a much greater diversity between human and Moroi opposed to Moroi and Dhamphir.  It will have you reading chapter 19 and saying WHHHHHAAAAATTTT?????

Seriously, you will do that. I had to stop and re-read the chapter.

Have I got you intrigued?  Maybe even just a little? 

Now go read it.  And comment on my post....

I loved it. And now it is fresh in my memory to pick up and read The Ruby Circle...which is on my nightstand now.  :)
