Sinopse

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.

 

Opinião

Se as capas desta série não levam uma mudança urgentemente, cabeças vão rolar. Até ao Indigo Spell era tudo uns modelos com umas caras pareciam que queriam arrancar os olhos ao leitor, agora é estas que parece que foram editadas no paint...

 

The Fiery Heart

Sinopse:

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.

 

Opinião:

Esta revisão está a ser escrita 10 minutos depois de ter acabado de ler o livro, a meio de uma aula de Metolodologias de Investigação (#sorrynotsorry stora), que não interessa nem à Sydney.

Uma semana! Uma semana foi o que eu esperei para ler isto e uma semana o demorei a ler. E agora vou ter de esperar não sei quantos meses para ver o que é que se vai passa! Não é justo (como vêem é só feels nesta volume).

Sinopse

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.

 

Opinião

Só agora reparei, depois de já estar quase a acabar o The Fiery Heart, que nem sequer tinha feito a do livro anterior. Bem, os detalher já me escaparam, mas vamos lá a isto. Adrian! Este homem vai-me matar com tanta fofice (e malandro, o moço!). Como é que a Sydney aguentou tanto? Bem, na verdade ela não aguentou foi nada, if you know what i mean ^^

Sinopse

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. Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist. But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her. When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her. Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

 

Opinião

Epá, mas que grande sinopse, quase que contam a história toda!

Nem sei por onde começar com este livro. Apesar de ter dado uma classificação fraquinha, este deve ter sido dos livros da Richelle que mais emoções me transmitiu, não só pelo seu conteúdo, mas porque mais uma vez me spoilei sem querer (o que vale é que foi numa parte boa) e andei toda desorientada e histérica.

Não é segredo para ninguém que esta série tem como casalinho principal a Sydney e o Adrian, mas até chegar à parte da 'casalinho' ainda se percorre um longo caminho (por isso é que depois de me spoilar, andava a ler este e o The Indigo Spell ao mesmo tempo).

Opinião

Depois da minha magnífica aventura com o Dimitri e a Rose, e principalmente depois do final mal resolvido com o Adrian que me deixou tão enfurecida, decidi que tinha de o resolver. Como já tinha dito anteriormente, adoro a Sydney e o Adrian, pelo que estava doidinha para ver como é que os músicos iam tocar neste concerto.
