‘Fiery Heart’ EXCLUSIVE: Read Second Chapter Of Richelle Mead’s ‘Bloodlines’ Novel!

The big-screen adaptation of Richelle Mead’s best-selling “Vampire Academy” won’t take a bite out of the box office until February 14, 2014, but thanks to the author’s spin-off series, “Bloodlines,” fans will have something to sink their teeth into while they wait.

The fourth chapter in alchemist Sydney Sage’s tale—”The Fiery Heart”—hits bookstore shelves November 19, and Hollywood Crush has your EXCLUSIVE first look at the novel’s second chapter!

As you’ll recall from “Indigo Spell” (SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN’T READ IT!), Sydney made the bold decision to defy her strict upbringing and become romantically entangled with bad-boy Moroi Adrian Ivashkov. (We could hardly blame her…) “The Fiery Heart” picks up a couple of months later, and things are as complicated as ever—what with Sydney’s little sister, Zoe, now at the academy and Sydney delving deeper into her magical powers. What is new in “The Fiery Heart”? Well, each chapter alternates between Sydney and Adrian’s point of view, meaning you’ll get a new perspective into the spirit user’s psyche. (And what a beautiful mind it is…)
