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 Silver Shadows (Razorbill) — the heart-pounding fifth installment in Richelle Mead's bestselling Bloodlines series — where all bets are off.

This is the third book of a series, so start with the first book (Vampire Academy) if you want to read it.

Rose is a dhampir, a half vampire, she is also her best friend's guardian. Her best friend is Vasilisa Dragonmir, a vampire with royal blood. It is Rose's job to protect Lissa at any cost. Right now that cost is the man she loves. Rose has fallen for Dimitri Belikov, one of the best guardians in the world and Rose's teacher. Although he feels the same way about her, it wouldn't be safe for them to be together. It would be too risky for Lissa, if one of them got distracted by an attack on the other it might be too late to save Lissa from another attack.

This series kind of bugs me, there is almost no character growth and the characters seem stereotypical and rather boring after a little while. The writing, while not brilliant isn't too bad and I enjoyed the first book back when I read it. But this book just fell flat for me, it felt like nothing had happened, no plot developments or character developments. Very predictable plot.
