SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ PREVIOUS BOOKS. HIGHLIGHT TO VIEW.
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. . . .
Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.
Because this is the fifth book in a series, I will keep this review brief to avoid spoilers.
Oh my sweet goodness this book was good. SO GOOD! Sydney is fabulous, Adrian is as swoon-worthy as ever, and all of the new characters were fantastic as well.
The only thing I didn't like was how some of the characters made certain decisions that made absolutely no sense, or made decisions out of pure stupidity. Some of them were SO STUPID. Why, Adrian, why? Stop drinking and look for your girlfriend!!
But other than that, this book was fabulous. A great addition to the BLOODLINES series!
CONTENT: Kissing, implied sex (hardly any details whatsoever), no swearing that I can recall, and moderate violence.
