Cover Reveal

The Indigo Spell was just released not to long ago and already we have the cover for The Fiery Heart which won't be released until November 19th of this year. That seems so far away and now that we have a cover I am fangirling and trying to stay calm. I'm not doing a very good job though...I NEED THIS BOOK.

Look at it. It's gorgeous and stunning and I love how Sydney looks disheveled rather than all  put together like she normally is. Sydney Sage is turning into quite the badass girl. That's all I'm saying. I also love how we get Adrian's full face this time. And that red? Gosh I just love this cover!

Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning

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.

 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

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.


  1. These still look like awesome books, but I must admit that I, personally, am not a huge fan of covers that center around pictures of specific models' faces. I guess I kind of like to decide for myself what they look like--or rather, let the author's writing determine that.

  2. I absolutely loved the first three books, and their covers. I was super excited for the Fiery Heart. I first saw it when I scrolled through my Facebook. I was appalled. First of all, that's Sydney? I mean, she kind of looks like the cover model on the other covers, but she just looks different. Honestly, she looks like Rose Tyler from Doctor Who. I personally do not like the disheveled look for her! :P

    And for Adrian... he just looks different than the previous cover model. He's still super attractive though! He also seems to look like a actor to me.

    Lastly, the colors. They just seem off for me! The other colors on the covers seemed to work, except for this one...

  3. I love this cover. It's not quite as polished as the other three are (maybe that will change as we get closer to November??) but I honestly love the way they've disheveled Sydney on this cover! I think her expression is hilarious. She looks so annoyed, which after reading The Indigo Spell, that sort of makes sense. Plus it's sort of a sign of how much she's changed throughout the series. I like it!

  4. I can't want to eventually have all these books side-by-side like the VAs. They're going to be so gorgeous on my book shelf!! I also can't wait to find out the flower type/significance for the next book. I love the continuity.
