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. . . .
YES YES YES, FINALLY!!!!!!!
I got my action, romance, grief, I got everything that I waited for! Silver Shadows was kick-ass, seriously, some true spirit-kick-ass.
Can we talk about Sydney for a bit? Just a second. Thank you. Girl-power alll the way!!!
She's turning into this strong proganist we knew she always was, and she's using her magic like it's been her true passion her whole life and not something she learned to accept a couple of months ago . It's fantastic to see her embrace her true self without even questioning it. She is so strong trough it all, and it makes me so proud.
Seeing what the Alchemist are capable of gives me true chills. THEY are the cruel people! They are not much better than the Strigoi's. As we know they took Sydney to re-education.
That's just been a word to us for so long. We've heard people talk about it, but we've never actually been there, until now. And all our fears of what might be inside there comes alive. It's horrible in a manipulative way. But Sydney is so s t r o n g. She really outdid her in this book. I did however question how the events were going to affect her relationship with Adrian...
And speaking of... Gosh I love him. I don't know how I could say anthing about him without it all being biased. He's one of my favorite characters. He and Magnus Bane might be tied for first place.
Overall I was very, very VERY pleased with the outcome of this book. The last one was a true dissapointment but not this one. Not at all. I'm hoping to see more of the other characters from Vampire Academy in the last book!
Last book. Oh God.
