Series: Book 4 in the Bloodline series
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the wolds 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.
This book has so much happening in it. Adrian and Sydney’s relationship goes to the next level, finally. Everybody finds out about their relationship, finally. Sydney has a breakthrough in so many things. That ending was insane. It was just ahhhhhh!
This is the first book of the series that is written from two POVs- Sydney’s, and now Adrian’s. It was interesting to see the world through Adrian’s eyes for once, he is an intriguing character and to view his pain and joys as he deals with the effect of Spirit, the struggles he goes through, it was really interesting and I loved seeing how he viewed Sydney. Honestly, where can I find myself an Adrian? I want one.
We also get some characters from the VA series popping up, which was nice and nostalgic. It’s crazy to see how far these two series have gotten.
The thing about this book is that there is so much hope in it. So much good happens, the characters are all finding their stride and it’s just all going so well, you are just waiting for the bad stuff to start. It can’t just keep going this well. So when the bad happens, and you know it does, it’s just so bad but so expected. I have so many questions about the next book, soooo many questions. It’s gonna be a good one. Stay strong Sydney!
The Fiery Heart rating: 10/10
