Sydney always believed that alchemists were born to protect vampire secrets and human lives – until she met Marcus and turned her back on everything she once knew.

But she’s not free yet. When her sister Zoe arrives, Sydney can only tell her half-truths about her past. And with every word she risks exposure – and the fatal consequences.

Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney must choose her path once and for all. Even if that means harnessing her magical powers to destroy the way of life she was raised to defend…


“Don’t take the high ground and assume you already know what you’ll do. The truth is, when it comes to someone you love, you’ll find there isn’t anything you won’t do.”

The Fiery Heart is the first book from this series that I haven’t reread yet. I was exited to get to it with  Ruby @ Ruby’s Books. You can read her review here.

I loved Sydney and Adrian in this book even if it made me sad they couldn’t tell anyone they were in a relationship with someone. They looked out for each other by trying to cut back on things that were bad for them, like smoking and alcohol for Adrian and coffee for Sydney. She was also trying to eat more, much to her dad’s disapproval. 

“Centrum Permanebit.”

I loved the little mentions we got about Hopper. I would’ve rather had more of him than about Nina or Zoe. I have never liked Zoe but this book just made me want to push her under a buss. Sydney is always worrying and taking care of her but Zoe only cares about their father ad becoming a super Alchemist.

I don’t really see what Adrian sees in Jill. He thinks there’s grace and wisdom radiating from her and I just see her as a normal teenager whose always there for their brother, or for someone they’re bonded with in this case.

All in I absolutely loved this book even if there were those few characters that annoyed the hell out of me.
