The Fiery Heart, by Richelle Mead
Synopsis: 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.
Thoughts: The first great thing about this book is that it is told in alternating points of view--one chapter is told by Sydney, and the next by Adrian. It's fascinating to finally be able to see a bit more of what goes on in Adrian's head. The only other things I have to say about this book are
1) Zoe is a horrible, horrible person!!!
2) I can't wait for July, to read the next installment, Silver Shadows.
