The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

The Golden Lily
(Bloodlines, #2)
by Richelle Mead
Released |June 12th 2012 by Razorbill|
Edition |Hardback, 418 pages|
The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series
Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

Great Sequel to an amazing series! Props to Richelle Mead for continuing on with an amazing series. I still liked Bloodlines better, but The Golden Lily was still really really good! I definitely think that those who've read Bloodlines need to hurry and read this one. And if you have not read the Vampire Academy series, you don't know what you've been missing!

Okay, I need to get this off my chest. I like Sage (Sydney), I do, but the girl is so boring and stiff! lol She need to lighting up! I just want to smack her sometimes. She's so stuck in her ways that it clouds her better judgement and I don't like that. Especially when it comes to Adrian :) I love Adrian, like I said before I was team Dimitri in the VA series, but Adrian is such an amazing guy in this series :D I liked him then, but not for Rose. Sydney is the way to go! lol I think I'm rambling. 

But those two are complete opposites, but I think that's what makes them perfect for each other. Throughout the entire book you could just feel a connection between them. And when Jill would have her 'moments' with Sage, you could just tell. 

I also really enjoy Eddie, Jill, and Angeline thing. Ooooh! How are things going to turn out :O ?
This book had tons of things going on in it, but it kept you on your toes in anticipation, it was entertaining, and action packed with tons of adorable romancy moments.

I really enjoyed this sequel! It was awesome :) Loved my moments with Dimitri. Had me reminiscing :D I can't wait for book 3!


  1. Great review Janina!So need this book! Also, drop by my trvia for The Golden Lily!

  2. Great review. I started The Golden Lily last night, and then finished it off this morning :D
    I was always for Adrian to be with Rose when I read Vampire Academy, but now I am all for Adrian and Sydney being together! You are right, they are totally opposite people, but they work so well together, they bring out the best in each other.

  3. I really enjoyed this book as well. I love Sydney and Adrian!! I wish the books would come out closer to each other. Having to wait a year is hard! Great review!
