It was especially depressing when I thought about Sydney, who knew everything about everything and could excel at any career she wanted. Oh, she's still crazy, but you'll see sides of her you've never seen before. It was the price for that kind of power, and these sudden shifts had become more and more frequent recently. And bit by bit, the energy began to fade. Trey was awesome.

Close X. Follow us. Please enter manually: What was sad, though, was that they were actually more thought out than any real plans we had. Both of us were painfully aware that we were very much living in the now, with a future that was anything but clear.
Breaking that second kiss was difficult too, but she finally managed it, and I watched her walk away. My apartment seemed dimmer in her absence. I brought in the rest of the boxes from my car and sifted through the treasures within. Most of the albums were from the sixties and seventies, with a little eighties here and there. For now, I set up the record player in my living room and pulled out an album at random: Machine Head by Deep Purple. I had a few more hours until dinner, so I crouched down in front of an easel, staring up at the blank canvas as I tried to decide how to deal with my current assignment in advanced oil painting: It could be abstract.
It could be anything, so long as it was representative of me. And I was stumped. I could have painted the wistful, fragile face of my friend Jill Mastrano Dragomir, a young princess of the Moroi. But myself? Maybe it was just an artistic block. As I stared at the canvas, my frustration growing, I had to fight off the need to go to my neglected liquor cupboard and pour a drink.
I could practically taste the vodka already.
I could mix it with orange juice and pretend I was being healthy. My fingers twitched, and my feet nearly carried me to the kitchen —but I resisted. I could do this—sober. And for the time being, that one drink was needed for the end of the day, when I was ready for bed. I never had in my entire life, so I had to use whatever help I could get. I stood up and stretched out the kinks in my body, feeling a return of that earlier darkness.
It was more angry than sad, laced with the frustration of not being able to do this. My art teachers claimed I had talent, but in moments like this, I felt like the slacker most people had always said I was, destined for a lifetime of failure.
It was especially depressing when I thought about Sydney, who knew everything about everything and could excel at any career she wanted. Putting aside the vampire-human problem, I had to wonder what I could possibly offer her.
If she just wanted to come home at night to eye candy with good hair, I could probably be that reasonably well. I knew these fears eating at me were being amped up by spirit. Not all of them were real, but they were hard to shake. I left the art behind and stepped outside my door, hoping to find distraction in the night to come. The sun was going down outside, and the Palm Springs winter evening barely required a light jacket.
It was a favorite time of the evening for Moroi, when there was still light but not enough to be uncomfortable. We could handle some sunlight, not like Strigoi— the undead vampires who killed for their blood.
Sunlight destroyed them, which was a perk for us. We needed all the help we could get in the fight against them. I drove out to Vista Azul, a suburb only ten minutes away from downtown that housed Amberwood Prep, the private boarding school that Sydney and the rest of our motley crew attended.
Leaning across the passenger seat, I opened up the door. They piled in. There were five of them now, plus me, bringing us up to a lucky seven, had Sydney been there.
Jill, the reason we were all here, scooted in beside me and flashed me a grin. If Sydney was the main calming force in my life, Jill was the second.
She was only fifteen, seven years younger than me, but there was a grace and wisdom that radiated from her already. Yes, Adrian surprised us a lot in The Indigo Spell, but it's nothing compared to the Adrian we see now that they're together.
Not that I'm surprised. Adrian has always been the sweet type to people he liked. And Sydney, well Of course you'd expect nothing less than to swoon every page of his chapter POVs. I wish I could say it'd be nothing but happy times for Adrian now that they're together.
He's within grips of spirit's craziness, after all. It's totally different now that we're seeing how spirit can affect someone directly, now that we have his POV. Not a good insight at all. And in addition, he'll now be forced to face his own demons. Nothing our Ivashkov prince couldn't handle. Or so we'd hope.
But as what I mentioned earlier, Adrian has come a long way. We do get another chance to meet well-loved characters of the past.
Including Lissa and Christian! Yep, most of the old gang will have a cameo. And if Dimitri bothers Adrian before, he could now make jokes still at our favorite dhampir's expense, of course without bitterness. We can celebrate later.
Besides, Belikov can't hold his liquor. The focus on morality and beliefs.
And it's not just Sydney's beliefs and morality anymore, but other people's as well. So that being said, let's visit our other ships' lives.
These two dysfunctional people is cute. Especially when they become Dimitri-like people with their Zen wisdom. It's funny how this couple, of all people, would be the one Sydney would admire and even be jealous of. But Angeline would really surprise you in this book. Oh, she's still crazy, but you'll see sides of her you've never seen before. Eddie and Jill! Well, I was kinda expecting that when Eddie won't shut up but I didn't know Jill had it in her.
You go, Jill! I'm so proud of you. Gosh, the couples won't sop coming. How are we even expected to survive all these cuuuute ships?!
I know, I know, that if we stop and look at it in Zoe's perspective, she thinks that she's trying to save her sister though if I'm going to be honest, she's probably trying to up herself in her daddy's eyes. But if only she hadn't come interfering. I so, so hate Mr. Still, I might be heartbroken about the ending but I'm most definitely excited to see where this will lead!

What is it about the fourth books? Anyways, I did think that the middle of this story was kind of dull compared to the first three Oh my gosh I don't even know how to properly write a review for this book because my mind still can't stop thinking about how this book ended.
I'm just really l I struggled with this book towards the middle.. I'm just really lucky that the next book is already out and in my possession. I can't imagine the pain that some of you went through while waiting.. It's nothing like the pain I felt at the end of the third Vampire Academy book though. Nothing can compare to that.. As the book progressed, I also thought that in some way, Zoe would be the one to betray her.
I understand that that girl has a lot of pressure from her father, but so does Sydney and look how awesome she turned out! Zoe really has no excuse. She needs to tell her dad to just shove it, and she needs to run away with Sydney and Adrian. Ya right. Another thing that was so terrible about the betrayal was how Zoe had started to actually warm up to everyone.
No such luck. I feel so bad for Sydney and of course Adrian. I don''t really know what's going to happen.. I don't know. But I do wish that she had done that experiment on herself with the tattoo.. Now the Alchemist can reink her, right?
Oh my gosh.. I'm so anxious about what's going to happen.. I need to start the next book! Jul 29, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it liked it Shelves: My anxiety faded.
I took a deep breath and met the gazes of all those watching me in the room. Who was I to do this? I was Adrian Ivashkov. And I was about to kick some ass. Actual rating: I wish Sydrian never happened.
What can I say, I loved the sexual tension and the chemistry of Sydney and Adrian as they battled for and against their feelings for each other more than I love their actual romance.
Please don't take my rating and my statement to My anxiety faded. Please don't take my rating and my statement to mean that I did not like this book.
I really did. Richelle Mead's writing has always been exceptional with the exception of one glaring instance that rhymes with Lameboard of the Gods, which we shall never mention again , the charactersall of them, not merely the side characters, are multi-dimensional and well-portrayed.
Technically, it was a very, very good book, but I do wish that Sydney and Adrian were still embroiled in the midst of their complex mating dance, rather than together as a couple. I have been anticipating this book for a long time, I have absolutely adored this series, and Sydney and Adrian have grown on me more than I ever would have known.
I mean it, I loved both characters. What I loved about this series overall was the characters of Sydney and Adrian, and watching them evolve into better people, thanks to one another. Sydney and Adrian were so instrumental in each others' growth, and as happy as I am to see them achieve happiness as a couple, I can't help feel that their overwhelming romance took place at the expense of the plot. Frankly, their love got on my nerves. I never expected to like either Sydney or Adrian as much as I did coming into this series.
Both characters were initially hard to love; we only saw glimpses of a very standoffish, cold, and deeply distrustful young Sydney in Vampire Academy. She was a stark contrast to the energetic, fiery Rose, and her narration was starkly jarring to me in the beginning of the Bloodlines series. Sydney grew on me as much as a character in a book ever could. I grew to understand her and admire her as she has grown into herself, as she has worked exceedingly hard to change the very core of the rational Alchemist that she is.
We saw Sydney overcome her distrust of the Moroi, her fear of magic, her skepticism of Adrian, her obsessiveness with perfection, her insecurities, her body issues. It feels as if Sydney is fully matured in this book, she has changed so much, and I like her as she is, but she seems somewhat less compelling of a character in this book.
I liked her with a little more mental insecurity, more issues within her head, not so perfect. Does that make me a bad person? Without a doubt, Adrian is my favorite character in this book, and I loved the way this book was structured, because for the first time, we get to hear Adrian's narration. Adrian's mental and physical change was such a joy to read. I hate bad boys. Fuck rakes. Fuck jerks, assholes, douchebag romance tropes.
Fuck all the Jericho Fuckin' Barrons of the world. But there is nothing so attractive as a reformed rake, and Adrian's transformation was as good as they came. In this book, we got to see even further how much he struggles, we see his mental instability as he deals with his overwhelming spirit use, his conflict as he tries to be someone worthy of being loved, of being a good boyfriend to Sydney, and a person who is in control of his own life.
And I gave myself a pat on the back because I was able to diagnose Adrian's mental illness before the book did. Thanks, DSM-V. I'm by no means an expert on mental disorders, but I felt Richelle Mead painted bipolar disorder in a realistic, convincing way within this book.
The extreme highs. The despairing lows. The constant swings in between. The mental instability. The feeling that you are never good enough. The phases of mania descending into a stupor. It was commendably well done. With that said, this book was too much Sydrian.
The plot was just not there. The majority of the book dealt with Sydney and Adrian's clandestine love, their illicit meetings, their struggle to disguise their actual feelings for one another during their meetings with others. There was an underlying plot, several minor ones, in fact, and they were very well done.
In fact, I wish for more of it, including more of Adrian's involvement in using Spirit to cure the Strigoi. But no, the plot just got overwhelmed by the gooey pile of mushiness that is Sydney and Adrian.
Overall, this is a very good book, but I found it a disappointment compared to the previous books. But then again, this is Richelle Mead, and I have to confess, I expect very great things from my favorite authors. She still remains one of my favorite authors, but I just want more plot and less knocking of boots, however attractive those boots are, Adrian.

Nov 21, Ferdy rated it it was ok Shelves: Spoilers I initially enjoyed the first three Bloodlines books but I think I've gone off them… On rereading I found them all rather uninspired and cheesy, especially the numerous romances which seem to dominate every story arc. I was hoping The Fiery Heart would reestablish my love for the series but if anything it just made me dislike it even more.
Maybe, I'm just tired of vampires, YA, and silly-forbidden-tropey romances. Most of the book was spent on Spoilers I initially enjoyed the first three Bloodlines books but I think I've gone off them… On rereading I found them all rather uninspired and cheesy, especially the numerous romances which seem to dominate every story arc.
It all felt like filler and everything was dragged out, it wasn't until the very end when things really started to kick off. If there's going to be a cliffhanger then I want to be surprised by what's to happen.
Why have a cliffhanger when its clear what's to come? So yea, the arc that was the foundation of the series was tied up in a very rushed and unsatisfying way. I'm not sure what the series is about anymore — the books have gone off into different tangents and seem to more about Sydney's magic, the Alchemists, Adrian's perfect HEA, and the stirgoi problem.
I wish there was just the one overarching storyline throughout, I guess future books will be about taking down the Alchemists. But since I find them irritating and dull, I'm not looking forward to that. They're just a bunch of stuck up, hypocritical, boring, righteous, racist humans who hate vampires for no real reason other than them thinking they're impure. The Alchemists don't have the allure, power or danger of the stirgoi… So yea, they make rubbish bad guys.
I finally realised how uninteresting Sydney is, she's had such a boring life, she mostly always follows rules, she's never had a relationship before Adrian, and she's never had a life before Adrian… And that makes Sydney boring. I didn't notice her flat personality in the first 3 books because I was kept entertained by Sydney's character development — she changed her principles, she embraced vampires and love, she rebelled against the Alchemists, and she accepted her magic.
And now she's done all that, she has nothing else to offer, except her boring personality and her boring duties and her banging on and on about her wuv for Adrian. He was an annoying, self-pitying, useless, irresponsible, drunk loser. Yea, I know he's a Spirit user which messes with his emotions but it was hard to feel sorry for him when he got drunk whenever he felt down in the dumps.
What can he really offer Sydney? She'd just be picking up after him and having to support his many ups and downs all her life. Sydney has enough to worry about Jill, her sister, her magic, not getting caught out by the Alchemists and Adrian just makes her life even more difficult. She'd be better off without him. Also, I was really tired of Adrian's whole nobody understands me routine. Get over it. I used to like them together but not anymore — their relationship comes across as fake and contrived.
I wasn't convinced, I wanted to 'see' their love for myself instead of being repeatedly hit on the head with it.
They just weren't natural together, every action and thought between them was contrived so that they'd seem like a 'meant to be' couple.
She was always the one who was left with sorting things out. Because a girl who loses her virginity needs to be punished or is somehow less than before?! It's a disgusting and sexist trope. Sure, he might think it's Sydney now but if he thought it was Rose at one point, and now thinks it's Sydney then what's to stop it from being someone else in the future?
He's 21 and living off his dad. He could still work whilst taking classes, he's got plenty of time. The double standards and sexism in YA are disgusting. Ugh, I'm sick of that line — it's in every YA book and it's not romantic, its cringey. Adrian was an experienced manslut, he knew exactly what to do, his whole 'I'm inexperienced' nonsense was tropey bullshit. Adrian kept pushing her to sneak out and pressuring her to spend time with him even though he knew Zoe was getting suspicious.
Sydney was risking it all to be with him, he was risking nothing whatsoever. I didn't like how willing he was to put Sydney at risk just because he was greedy and selfish. I'm not convinced that he loves her all that much, everything was about him and his needs. He never once thought to back off in order to protect her. He was such a loser boyfriend.
It was really off putting how she was bank rolling him, no wonder he's in 'love' with her. She'd only been missing a few days, and he stopped trying to find a way to rescue her, and instead decided to get drunk because that would make him feel better.
Never mind about Sydney and the fact that she needed help, it was all about him. If it was the other way around, Sydney would stop at nothing to save him.
It's a shame Adrian doesn't love her as much as she loves him. It's not like the throne can be passed down to relatives, it's all election based… It's a ridiculous law that makes no sense. It's unrealistic that every teenage character has managed to find their twu wuv. All in all, it was disappointing. Sydney was boring, Adrian was whiny, the romance was another cliched run of the mill YA romance, and the plot wasn't exciting.

View all 18 comments. Really, I said in my last review that I wasn't really digging this series, but OH, this book had made me shut my mouth! There were still a little too much plotlines, BUT they were actually really interesting and I didn't know what to expect about anything! And Sydrian, oh god, Sydrian. This book was full of romance and passion and I can't even They are so adorable and sexy together!
I ship them more than ever. They complement each other, they save each other. Also, Jill was awesome. Eddie was awesome. Neil was awesome. Angeline was awesome. Trey was awesome. Miss T was awesome. Even Malachi was awesome! And I ship Eddie and Jill, what is the name of that ship? And of course Rose and Dimitri. And we got a "Little Dhampir", and I fangirled a lot at that. Also, I hate Zoe. How could she? This book was so intense, specially the final chapters. The cliffhanger Richelle left just made me remember she is an ugly person because YES.
Oct 02, Stacia the club rated it liked it Shelves: I can't believe it took me almost 2 months to read The Fiery Heart. I got stalled out by the midway point and didn't have any motivation to want to pick the book up again. Was my love affair with Richelle Mead coming to an end?
Say it isn't so! I really couldn't figure out what was up with the "whole lot of yawn" happening in the first half. Even having Adrian's PoV didn't really perk up the non-events going on.
Maybe the alchemist side of the story and all of the new characters just d 3. Maybe the alchemist side of the story and all of the new characters just don't do it for me. I'm still also trying to reconcile in my head how much magic humans can do now.
Back in VA, it almost seemed like the magic that alchemists had was borrowed through the use of vampire blood and infused items. Now, humans are just going around left and right and kicking ass alongside the vamps. Are we heading into a world where the poor guardians can go extinct because yet another race ends up having more value with them? WTF is this thing? It's alive. Oh wait, it's not. Oh wait, it is. What is the point of Hopper? We didn't have cutesy gimmick creatures before.
I'm starting to feel like the further we get into this series, the more the rules change. Adrian's character growth has almost turned him into an unrecognizable character, and I can't decide how much of this is for the better. At least he didn't forget to call Rose "little dhampir.
The second half of the book finally brought it all back though. When I decided to come back and try again, I ended up loving the rest of the story. What Jill did after the fight scene: I was mentally cheering her on. Sydney and Adrian: Not as exciting as I'd been hoping for.
They're sweet, but this spin-off series just doesn't have the heart-pounding and epic romance of the prior series. I laughed at Adrian joking about him not being able to hold his liquor, and him having a WTF? Is it too much to ask for more Eddie time? He's one of the actual characters who came over from VA, yet he is still background fodder.
I know that Mead probably doesn't want to write Dimitri part deux, but when she teases me with phrases like Eddie was magnificent. I'd nearly forgotten that the adopted brother I joked and ate lunch with was a lethal warrior.
We have another brooding person who wants to save the world and he's delegated to being the designated driver. It's wrong, I tell you. Anyway, even though the book slipped off a little, the strong and exciting second half somewhat made up for a weaker first half.
Nov 03, Komal rated it liked it Shelves: Nothing kills a book like predictability. I am so pissed right now. So fucking pissed that I'll just write things as they are in my head. I've been waiting for this book to be released ever since I finished reading The Indigo Spell a few months ago. I have to say I wasn't expecting it to be such a letdown.
