Product Description

The heart-pounding fifth installment of the bestselling Bloodlines series, from the author of Vampire Academy.
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 the fifth book of the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.

First line: I WOKE TO DARKNESS

I received a copy of Silver Shadows from Penguin Australia. This in no way has influenced my review. This review will contain spoilers from the Vampire Academy series and the previous Bloodlines books. It will NOT contain spoilers from Silver Shadows.

I love Richelle Mead. I cannot explain how much. With each book she writes everything just seems to be getting better and better and I don’t even know how. Silver Shadows is pure brilliance and, in my eyes, a masterpiece.

I cannot control my fangirling at all. But what VA/Bloodlines fan can? There were so many moments in this book that I wanted to scream and dance. I read Silver Shadows in less than 12 hours. As soon as I received it and picked it up I could not put it down. From the first page the story grips you and you cannot put it down. Richelle Mead’s writing is breathtaking and gripping.

Like The Fiery Heart, Silver Shadows is told from both Sydney and Adrian’s point of view. And let me tell you, Richelle Mead knows how to write from two perspectives. You can tell who is who even without having each chapter title.

At the end of The Fiery Heart we are left with a massive cliff hanger and it doesn’t get better for either Sydney or Adrian. I wanted to hug them both and cry with them. Sydney, as we know, is in rehabilitation and it’s not great, not at all. She suffers in so many ways that I cannot explain. Sydney is so strong throughout the whole series and she becomes so much stronger in Silver Shadows and I admire her so much more.

Adrian, oh my poor Adrian. I wanted to hit him across the head sometimes. I also wanted to hold him in my arms. I just wanted to make everything better. We really got to see a lot more of Adrian, the real Adrian.

Another cliff hanger - cheap trick to keep people buying books that could be written with half the words. I mean, what happened in this book to move the plot along - not much! The prison section went on and on and on and when it finally goes somewhere - guess what, chop it off and write another book ... some time. Is it so difficult to write a stand alone book nowadays? There should be a law against any more than a trilogy.

Just when I thought this series could not get any better, and BAM! Silver shadows Nails it. In Silver Shadows we get to see more of the Tough and Unbreakable Sydney, we knew that she was strong and could hold her own, but wow trying to survive what the alchemists have install for her, she must cling to who she is and what she believes in to survive torture and horrendous conditions, hoping that a chance comes where she can escape back to Adrian and the Gang.

Adrian is trying desperately to find Sydney and with no leads and no one able to help him, he starts to drown in his depression, which is really sad to see because I have grown so use to the fun and charming Adrian we forget what a combination of Stress and Spirit can do to him.

This story is heart pounding, non stop action. It is great to see Sydney finally accept who she is and her strengths, to save herself and fellow alchemist rebels that are locked up with her. I could not find fault with this instalment and could not put it down.

I highly recommend Silver Shadows and the whole Bloodlines series. If you want a funny, romantic, paranormal series this one is for you.

No spoilers, just vague references.

This was Mead's best work yet. It had a lot going for it.

The switches in points of view really helped advance the story, making it flow nicely. I liked reading about Adrian, especially since his character is given more substance in this book. It was also nice to see that he was actually doing something rather than sitting around, moping.

I'm glad to say the story didn't feel stale or stagnant like some of Mead's other works have at times. The moment I thought the action was slowing down and my interest was declining, it picked right back up and continued until the end.

All this being said, I didn't like the end. I won't include spoilers, but I will say that I'm growing tired of the cliffhangers. Back when I read Shadow Kissed the ending was one of my favourite parts, but Mead has pulled this trick on us so many times before that it's lost its value. Where it once felt like it genuinely stemmed from a desire to progress the story in an interesting way, it now just feels like an easy tool to sell more books. I realise that cliffhangers are very much a tool to sell more books, but there reaches a point where they lose their creativity and become more annoying than interesting. I wish Mead would focus more on making the story feel character driven and less like the characters are simply there to act out the plot. There are times when she does this, but endings like that overshadow them.

It's still worth the read, but if Mead could avoid her clichÃÃ,Ã,©s, that would be nice.

Let me start of saying I am a huge fan of Richelle Meads work. I have loved all her stories, but I am sorry to say that I do not love this series. I thought for sure that I would because I loved Vampire Academy. But no, I find the story line was just a bit tedious. I understood why the first half of this book was about Adrian and Sydney’s life being apart but it just seemed to drag on with nothing really happening. I tried taking a break from reading it hoping that a little time away might help make the story seem a little more………..exciting and although the story’s plot had started to improve I still found that I was still forcing myself to get to the end. Although in the last few chapters the storyline did pick up and I found myself back in my usual Mead reading Trance I had found myself in with her other stories, hanging off every word, until I reached the end (Which ends on a big cliffhanger.) Which is why I have decided to give the book three stars, had things not improved I may have found myself giving one of Meads books one/two stars for the first time ever. Had things not improved for me I would not have bothered with the next book of the series but with things ending on such a big cliffhanger I find that I have to know what happens. (I’m sure that was Meads intentions when she ended it there)
