The Golden Lily - Richelle Mead

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)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.
Before I review the masterpiece that is The Golden Lily, I would like to take a moment to freak out. OHMYGOD THE GOLDEN LILY AND ADRIAN AND OHMYGOD.

Now that that's over with, let's get into the review. We meet a few new characters in this sequel, and there is a lot more drama and y'know in true Mead fashion, the dreaded love triangles. Not to mention helping to plann a wedding and trying to make sure that your charges don't get killed by some crazy people while trying to protect the Mori princess and her friends. Oh, and homework. That's important too.

There was some awesome character development in this sequel, along with some heart break and things of that nature. Sometimes I just really really REALLY wanted to bash a speaker on Sydney's head because it's so utterly obvious that Adrian and her need to get together. But, then again, maybe that's just me going down with this ship. You get to see more of the supporting characters, and Eddie! My heart. I just can't even form the words right now.

Also, there's a new group of bad guys. So, that poses a problem.

So many things happened in this book that it's hard to review. It was awesome - obviously, it's Richelle Mead - and I would definitely rate it 5/5 stars. In true Mead fashion, there is another cliffhanger, and there are definitely some questions that NEED to be answered. Especially after an epic ending like that. Oh, and have I mentioned Adrian?
