Waiting on Wednesday (#1): The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead

Hey everyone. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to highlight upcoming releases that we’re dying to get our hands on.


Title: The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4)
Author: Richelle Mead
Release Date: November 2013

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 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.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

I mean, really, who doesn’t want to see what happens next with Sydney and Adrian?!? Getting part of the story in Adrian’s perspective is just a bonus! I’m also a little biased here, because I’ve followed Richelle Mead through every single one of her series so far. I love the Georgina Kincaid books and, of course, the Vampire Academy books. And am I the only one who has swooned over Kiyo and Dorian from the Dark Swan series??

November feels very far away right now!

      • I finished that one not too long ago! It’s a different branch a fantasy that she’s not done yet but man she did it well. I really can’t wait for the next one to come out!

          • I *briefly* saw it, like when I went to add it as ‘want to read’ on goodreads. I was in the middle of getting a post together so I didn’t really get a chance to look at it. I’m headed to look now. *goes to look* Oh wow. It IS gorgeous. But WHY do we have to wait until the end of May? *pouts* [Ok I’m mostly kidding, she’s got other series going on and about to have a baby, so she’s super busy. I just love her books so much!]
