Format: Hardcover
After facing death by strogoi, Sydney is now back to her normal life, or whatever pass as normal with her latest mission. She poses as Jill's sister (a moroi princess in hiding) along side with Adrian & Eddy (her supposedly brothers) and Angeline (their fictional cousin). Along with the merry gang are former strogoi Dimitri & Sonia, trying to discover why strogoi restored by spirit magic can't be turned again. At first look it seems to be all fun but things gets complicated when a band of human attack Sydney and Sonia, wanting to kill the latter because "she's an evil creature of the night". What a mood killer!

If you remember, Bloodlines had been a bit of a let down for me, but I'm happy to report that I think The Golden Lily was better! To my dismay, Jill still won't be in danger in that book, which honestly bothers me because the whole mission was set to protect her from vindictive moroi who might want to kill her to remove Lissa from the throne, but this latest installment brought a lot of interesting elements to the table.

Let me start by talking romance because surprisingly there's a lot of it! Jill's relationship with Eddy's roommate Micah evolve, to Eddy's dismay because he's in love with her, but Eddy isn't left out as new comer Angeline has it big for him. The whole situation would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic. Poor Jill is completely blind to Eddie's affections and his broken heart is hard to bare. On the other hand Angeline won't miss an occasion to rub herself against him, oblivious to his disgust toward the whole thing. I could really picture his discomfited expression, holding back eye rolls because it wouldn't be professional. This love square (?

"The Golden Lily" continues the story of two side characters from the Vampire Academy series. The story mainly revolves around Sydney who is an alchemist who is sent to help Jill,( the other VA character) the Queens half sister, stay away from palace intrigues, and more specifically, assassination attempts. The thing is that Sydney has some serious doubts about the real intentions of the Alchemist leaders, and is starting to seriouslly doubt her role as an alchemist. Also, the mysterious awakening of magic powers within herself, witch powers. Alchemists hate anything to do with magic, so this is putting our Sydney in quite a predicament. Other complicating facters include her own "feelings" for the rebellious Royal Vampire Adrian, as well as the actions of the others who have been sent to aid Jill.

This is a Good Book and series. "Golden Lily" furthers the plot advancements and the characters growth. I can not wait to read the whole series. Book 5 does not come out till July so there will be a bit of a wait. Its hard for me to not keep reading till well past the time I should be sound asleep. This is always a good indicator of an excellent series.

Format: Hardcover
Cover:
Are those twins? Clones? I believe they're supposed to be Sydney and Jill. Well to say the least, that's a hideous cover.

Writing:
(2/5) Gah, the writing was so lazy. This seemed like it was an early draft that wasn't edited nearly as much as it should have been. Here's an example:

"That wasn't exactly reassuring. I turned back to the gorgeous view and lush property. I wasn't always the most imaginative person, but I thought back to what I'd said about living another life. What would it be like to have a home like this? To stay in one place? To spend days by the pool, soaking in the sun, and not worrying about the fate of humanity? I fell into daydreams and was so caught up that I lost track of time."

This wasn't nearly as bad as some of the others. I know Richelle Mead can do better, but I think she's rushing this series. Each book is released in six months, plus she has a bunch of other books she's currently writing. I really felt it was just not given enough time.

Setting:
(2/5) With the Vampire Academy series, the setting was interesting because it felt well thought-out. With this spin-off, the idea seems to be getting stale and the author adds all these other things about the Alchemists and the Hunters that is just flimsy and plain boring! The idea of the witches was sort of interesting in comparison to the Alchemists and the Hunters, but honestly it wasn't that great. I do like that Sydney and the group are in a boarding school though. I've always thought that that was an interesting setting.

Plot:
(2.5/5) The plot was slow and really dragged on. Then there was this whole thing with Sydney dating this guy that was boring to read about and should have been taken out.

Format: Hardcover
The Bloodlines Saga continues with yet another predicted hit.

Sydney who is an alchemist on duty, and should therefore alienate herself as much as possible from vampires, simply can't do it. She grows even more in this novel, learning about who to thrust and setting aside prejudices. Richelle Mead even gives her a boyfriend, Brayden, an awkward at times rude geek that sparks several humorous situations. But what makes the book worthy of a read is the obvious sentiments between Sydney and fan-favorite Adrian. Never have two characters seemed more destined to be together, and yet unable to make it happen.

The book closed with an open ending that will have me puzzling until I get my hands on the third installment, The Indigo Spell. Just who is Marcus Finch?
