The Golden Lily Review

418 pages

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.

The second novel in the Bloodlines series, this doesn't disappoint. Once again we are thrown into the world of vampires seen through Sydney's eyes. Sydney is her usual capable and efficient self, although a bit narrow-minded as usual. Sydney has grown a lot since the first novel, she still does what she thinks is right, but her mind has opened a lot more from the Alchemists idea of vampires. I was also a little bit surprised that Sydney actually lets a little romance into her life and its interesting to see the way it turns out. All of the usual characters are back in full force with all the things we love about them. I love the way a fresh and new concept was brought to the storyline of this book. There are new dangers for Sydney and her friends to deal with and that creates an explosive and exciting ending. I cannot wait to see whats next for Sydney and the changes in her life in the next novel. I definitely recommend this if you have read the first book in this series Bloodlines.
