Book Review: 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.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
Back in the Vampire Academy Series when we were first introduced to Sydney Sage I didn't think her character was that interesting.  Sure the idea of Alchemists was intriguing and I could see a potential there but once the spin off series came out and I read it I realized how interesting Sydney is.  I thought this book was better than Bloodlines and Sydney has changed quite a bit from the first book.  I loved that we got a little romance from her and also got to see some characters we loved like Dimitri, Sonya, Adrian & Angelique.  I loved the ending which actually makes me wish I didn't have so long to wait until the next book comes out.
