Synopsis (from 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.
Why this book?
So, anyone who knows anything about me knows that I am DYING for this book. It’s so much worse because I don’t actually know anyone personally who’s read this series. My sister has read all the Vampire Academy books, but is yet to read Bloodlines. So I can’t tell her what’s happened, but she’s been watching me flail around with the release of each new trailer, desperate for this book.
One of the biggest issues that I’m having is that I didn’t even begin reading Vampire Academy until March this year (so I could go see the movie), and as a result, this the first book in the entire series that I’ve had to wait for. Considering I read the other 10 books within the space of three weeks, these past few months have been torture.
Only 2 weeks to go!!
