The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
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.
AND FOR THOSE OF YOU who were awesome enough to read through the whole blog post, here are some teasers to get you excited about the book!
How on earth am I going to get through this date alive?
He would have done it for you regardless.
One minute we were talking Halloween costumes, the next we were discussing the ancient Athenian origins of democracy.
So far I'm not seeing a lot of difference between me and a carnival con-man.
The other thing that bothered me... well, he said all that in front of you.
So. You're saying my sister's dressed like a prostitute.
My mind, it... it's who I am. I think I'd rather suffer any other injury in the world than have my mind tampered with.
You are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth.
Why not see which is brighter: your aura or the sun?
For once, you're going to hear something that doesn't fit into your neat, compartmentalized world of order and logic and reason.:)
