Waiting On Wednesday #2

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2) by Richelle Mead.
Audience/Genre : Young Adult/Paranormal.
Publication : June 12th 2012 by Razorbill.
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age-old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she’s supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she’s been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

I guess it's no surprise that I'm one of the million(s) waiting for The Golden Lily to come out. Richelle Mead mentioned in an interview somewhere that we get a lot more romance in this one and I can't wait to read it! I've already pre-ordered a copy but I'm not going to wait for it to get delivered. I'm going to purchase the e-book as well so I can read it as soon as it's out. This is one of those few rare occasions where the time zone/difference works in my favor. =)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.

  1. I am most definitely waiting for this book too! I am in the minority of people who have not read VA yet (I want to clear a few weeks so I can read the series start to finish), but I read Bloodlines and really, REALLY enjoyed it. It is going to be a long wait until June!!!

    My WOW:
