Я тут, наконец, отчитался перед тамблером о "Пламенном Сердце" Мид, но мне слишком лень это перепечатывать на русском. Но почему бы и не скинуть. И да, вьюи, я скучаю.: (
The Fiery Heart review or yeah, I have finally wrote what I've been thinking
It was a long time since I’ve finished ‘The Fiery Heart’, but I hadn’t enough time to express what is still going on in my mind about this. Well, first of all, SPOILERS AHEAD! Don’t blame me, I’ve warned you! ;) So, let me say about the most important moments (well, at least, for me), huh:
The Coven. Yep, that was amazing! Most of all, I like the idea of Richelle that ‘her’ witches weren’t creepy and didn’t pretend to be scary and didn’t talk about prophesies (like Trelawney did, e.g.), etc. They are normal people, I liked it. And it was exactly what Sydney needed.
Sydney’s cheating Zoe because of running away to Adrian. From the exposition to the end of the book I was afraid about WHEN everything is going to fall, when and HOW Sydney and Adrian will fail, because it was abvious that such extreme lie cannot last forever. So, screw this goddamn phone! But honestly, it was almost worth it. :)
Crazy Adrian vs. strong-willed Adrian. Craziness - that was the strongest part! Oh, my poor prince of sarcasm, please, let me hug you as hard as Sydney can do it. :) Because, seriously, there are not so many people in your world who would like to take care of you. Truly, Lord Ivashkov, Sydney is your flame in the dark! I’m so pround of her helping you, controling you, but the greatest part anyway was done by you, and it is what makes everything so incredable! Thanks to Mead again for showing how strong and confident Adrian can be even in the darkest times. Being selfless, taking pills, helping with spirit experiments, taking care of Sydney and Jill and others - all of this just show us how great this character is! I am so in love, always and forever.
THIS MOMENT. Well, frankly, moments. Who could expect so much passion from Sydney? :) No one, definitely. Miss I’m a quick study again showed everyone that she is the best in everything. :) And really, it seemed so natural, even thought human and vampire connection is more than forbidden. It was beautiful, georgeous, the right thing in the world. And yes, I hardly want an epilogue in the end of the whole series that will tell us about their chilldren. :) Mead, Your Grace, you should do it! (And yeah, sex in the Ivashkinator is one more thing that’s hardly expected!)
Eddie, Jill, Trey, Angeline, and the fight with the Strigoi. These guys are the best team ever. :) No doubts they won that asshole over. And all this chemistry between them, Eddie/Jill especially… But… Don’t get me wrong, but Richelle created too much 'out of line' couples, it seems weird a little bit. I hope there will be no more than what we have on our hands now. Seriously.
Re-education. Well, ugh, yes, it has finally happened.
Oh, Zoe, little b… I HOPED THAT POOR KIND EDDIE WOULD HAVE SAVED HER! But, at the same time, with her decision Sydney’s showed us again how selfless she is, how much she cares about her friends, about whom even a couple months ago she used to think as of enemies. Remember who the real enemy is (c, THG, lol). I am 100% sure that Sydney will survive, but how? What she and Adrian will pay for that? There is a danger now for both of them to lose their insanity, and remember what Sydney has once said? ‘I think I’d rather suffer any other injury in the world than have my mind tampered with.’ So, I don’t think we are near to the ‘happy ending’ for now, knowing Richelle. ;)
But we’ll hope! The centre will hold, because we are the centre !
