Synopsis

The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series, Bloodlines

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.

Examiner

When reading Bloodlines I thought of the characters as Vampire Academy rejects but reading The Golden Lily (and getting over my hang up on Vampire Academy) really let me see the characters for who they truly are and love them all the more for it.

Seriously though, this book was without a doubt the best book of 2012 that I have read (prior to reading this book I was in a 7-8 star book slump, but this book, well, if I could give it more than 10 stars I could AND it once again gave me hope for the future of YA books) and this book was withou...
