Title: The Golden Lily 
Author: Richelle Mead 
Genre: Paranormal, Romance, YA
Favorite quote: 
“I tried to be a better person for her– but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. […] You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.” 

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.

                                   My Review: 
I honesty was not planning to do a review on this book. When I read it, I was about to do a review but then life happened and I just forgot about it. Then the most craziest thing happened...Adrian entered my dreams!{I swear this actually happened} I wouldn't go into detail about the dream lets just say it was a very very nice one. Now here is the thing, the next morning I just shrugged it off as a crazy dream. But then one of my  fellow bloggers told me she was doing a review on The Golden Lilly! Right then and there I knew Adrian was sending me a sign to do this review. So here is this review for one of my favorite bad boys. 


Even though Sydney is the main character she is not the only one with a problem. All the supporting characters have problems themselves and you can see a huge growth at the end of the book in all the characters. This book surprised me because I thought it would be very predictable. There are twists and turns though out the whole book. {Especially the last chapter but we will talk about that later....} 

There is no love triangle for the main character!!!! How many novels have I read were the main character is just sooooo amazing she has  two guys pinning for her? A LOT believe me when I say that, but this book is a refreshing because you don't see that. { Well there is this one guy....but he is not wroth my blog space}

You never see Rose in this book! Now, I love Rose but its nice that this is Sydney's story and not part 2 of Rose's. Rose is only mention  a hand full of times. While Lissa is only mention once or twice. 


I had a couple of moments in this book where I want to roll my eyes at the cheesiness of some of the scenes. I mean really, they were laying it a little thick with the lines in this book. Also I really wish there was a little bit more butt kicking in this book. I know Sydney is no Rose but I hope in the next book she will kick some butt!!

Last Chapter:

I just have one last thing to say to you Adrian lovers out there, when you read the last chapter you will have this look on your face: 
I can't decide who earns this look more: Syndey for what she did or Richelle Mead for making us wait til 2013.
