Here's the Goodreads summary:

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.

  6. I've read somewhere that Richelle said there will be more romance in the second book so I am expecting some kissing. :)

  8. OMGGGGGGG! Thanks for the giveaway! I am totally obsessed with Adrian and Sydney and I hope to see a development in their relationship. Whatever kind of relationship they have. :)

  9. I want to see Adrian and Sydney hook up but I also want to see Adrian and Dmitri make peace with each other.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Some more Adrian. That's all I want to see!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well,what I'm expecting in the book is more action, drama, romance, humor, and a bit of suspense because I care about everything that will happen. I don't just stick to one point like Adrian and Sydney being together. I'm expecting a mature Adrian, a strong and brave Sydney when it comes to family and love, an aware Jill (when it comes to how Eddie feels for her), a fearless Eddie when it comes to his feelings, more of Abe and the rest of the gang. I'm expecting a story like TGL to be one of the books that will make your head spinning, and hairs at your neck standing.

    ReplyDelete

  15. Eddie and Angeline. That's what I really want to happen. Ever since Richelle introduced (again) Angeline in the last pages of Bloodlines, I've been thinking how good of a match she and Eddie can be. *O* I haven't read the book yet and here I am shipping these two. xDD

    Thanks for the giveaway! ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  64. I want to "see" Adrian and I hope that he don´t suffer a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I want to see more about Sydrian, whether they're together or apart no matter. They are my favorite characters from Bloodlines and Vampire Academy.

    Why do I read these quotes from the book?
    I am suffering here because of them and trying to figure out who said what.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Just like everyone else, I would love to see Sydney and Adrian get together. He deserves a good woman, and Sydney does have some good principles. I think Eddie and Jill would make a good couple, but I'm thinking it may be Eddie and Angelina... Can't wait to read.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ah, Sydney and Adrian. The rest of the book practically doesn't exist. I'm in totally fangirl mode.

  72. I haven't read the first one yet, but plan to read this series as soon as I finish The Vampire Academy series. I'm really enjoying that one, and am sure I'd love this too. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would like to see more of Adrian's softer side in TGL. Honestly, he was part way there in the VA series, but Rose had to screw that up :( I <3 Rose and Dimitri, and am glad that she ended up with him, BUT the way she used Adrian was awful, and I really felt bad for him. How he blows up at her in the end of Last Sacrifice, gave me chills. She totally deserved that. And I hate what she said to him at the end. Like everything was his fault?! WTH?! She knew exactly how he was, and yet, she still used him. I hope he softens up, gets with Sydney, or at least with someone who will understand him, and treat him right. He deserves to be loved!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I want to see more of the Alchemist world and the research about Sydney's blood.

    ReplyDelete
