(ebook) The Golden Lily from Dymocks online store. Book #2 in the bestselling Bloodlines series by. The Golden Lily book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble.
I felt Sydney finally letting down her guard with the vampires and she really worried and cared about my Adrian, so big bonus points! As much as I am growing to like her, I was still disappointed with some of her actions. Like not immediately jumping Adrian?! The alchemists are scary, bad people, and we see in this book what happens when someone is too friendly with the vampires. Sydney will need a lot of strength to break away from them like I hope she will eventually.
It didn't help that Jill was discussing her own troubled love life with her. Jill was a bit annoying to me in Bloodlines and while she is still naive, I found that she was maturing.
She wants to date and thinks that maybe she can have something casual with Micah. She quickly realizes how difficult keeping secrets can be and that being with a human could never be a permanent thing. I do feel really bad for Jill and the position she is in. Eddie is still her loyal protector. I love Eddie and also felt a lot of growth with his character. I was very happy with all the character developments. In Bloodlines I really didn't enjoy anyone but Adrian and of course he is still the absolute best part, star of the show, wouldn't be anything without him, but I enjoyed everyone during this book.
Eddie is so kind even when trying to keep the new frisky Angeline off his back.
She likes to rub up on him during training and well who wouldn't. Angeline was so funny. She was completely out there and did whatever she wanted, causing a lot of trouble for Sydney. I just want to go on and on, especially about Adrian, but I must stop myself. I've probably said too much already! I'm very happy it was the next level of action, romance, character development and Adrian awesomeness that I was hoping for. Adrian continues to swoon an amaze me. I shall head back to my Adrian altar and continuing worshiping until the next book.
Feel free to join me. Can't wait to see what happens next. Day Situation is growing worse. My captors continue to find new and horrific ways to torture me.
When not working, Agent Scarlet spends her days examining fabric swatches for bridesmaid dresses and going on about how in love she is. This usually causes Agent Boring Borscht to regale us with stories of Russian weddings that are even more boring than his usual ones. My attempts at escape have been thwarted thus far. Also, I am out of cigarettes.
Any assistance or tobacco products you can send will be greatly appreciated. A date? A date. Not, like, doing homework together," he added. And a movie that's not part of a school assignment. Or about something boring. There's something that you can't do? But maybe I could switch to something slightly cheaper for a while.
Do you know how much I love those? Cherry, especially. I've decided I don't like him. I remember Jill and Eddie's early comments. I just think you can do better. He leaned his face toward mine. No one can look at you in this dress, in all that fire and gold, and start talking about anachronisms. If I were him, I would have said, 'You are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth. Why would you act like you didn't know how to drive? No, of course it isn't.
I did it so I'd have a reason to be around you-one I knew you couldn't refuse. View all 76 comments. I love it!!! First Rose and now Sydney! Why they keep hurting Adrian?
Just give him to me: P 1 A lot of things happen in this book but all I can think about is that kiss! Oh my god! It rocked my world and Sydney's even though she doesn't want to admit! And then he admits his feelings about Sydney shock but she was like "ohh I am human.. Once again he is hurting. His smile dropped.
Because I kissed you back? He shook his head. It was so obvious. It's red. Don't start. I'm tired of hearing about it. You yell. You want to leave? We go. I'll get you out of here, no matter what. He says all those things and she is completely oblivious. That's right. Almost everyone forgets his name except for Sydney and Trey. So, that guy is Sydney's love interest!
The only thing Sydney and Brayden have in common is that they are both smart! Their dates were boring and a little bit funny shake hands. Their kisses was not memorable. She didn't feel anything when they were kissing.
In the end, Brayden broke up with Sydney. We were all glad about it. Brayden broke up with me. Of course! And guess what? Trey is one of them. I did not see that coming.
Although I still like Trey. He is so funny and cute. He is not the bad guy here. He is a lot like Sydney. He grow up believing what they told him. Especially, Adrian is very "happy" about it. Is this a good idea, Dimitri? Please give us your blessing so that we can fall down and worship you, Dimitri. Vampire hunter or the "Warriors" believe that Sonya is still Strigoi and they wanted to kill her.
They kidnapped her but Sydney, Eddie, Dimitri and Adrian rescued her. What an asshole! He wanted to know how his mother was and he treat Adrian like shit. He also blamed him that it was his fault that his mother was in prison!
I will admit though that Adrian did some things on purpose. He jerked his head toward me in astonishment. They are better as friends. At first she had some adjusting problems. In other words, she was always in trouble.
I loved it! But in the end she became more responsible and Eddie saw that change and she ask her out. I love Angeline but I want Eddie with Jill. Eddie is in love with Jill and Jill likes him. What a mess. Wolf was awesome. View all 14 comments.
Jun 09, Alexa rated it it was amazing Shelves: My review can also be found on my blog Collections. After enjoying Bloodlines immensely, it was pretty much inevitable that I would love The Golden Lily. This book exceeded all my expectations, and I'm more obsessed with this series now than I already was before.
I just can't get enough of it! In Bloodlines , the focus was on learning about the Alchemists and Sydney bonding with her new group of "s My review can also be found on my blog Collections. In Bloodlines , the focus was on learning about the Alchemists and Sydney bonding with her new group of "siblings.
There was slightly more action than in the previous book. It might not be as much as some want; however, I think there's lots of action to come later. And I can't help but to trust where Richelle Mead is going with this story because so far I'm very happy with how she's developing these characters and their relationships.
Likeable characters and great relationships are always what I want in the books I read and this series has that, which is why I want to focus on my two favorite characters: Sydney and Adrian!
I adore Sydney and Adrian so much. Those two are some of the most awesome characters I've read about. They are both kind, funny although, I don't think Sydney realizes how hilarious some of the things she says can be , smart yes, Adrian is; just give him a chance! And when they're together, they challenge and bring out the best in each other.
Their relationship is perfect! I get a big smile on my face and my heart flutters whenever they interact or are even in the same room. I about died from happiness a couple of times while reading this book because of them. They are definitely the main reason why I love this series. Sydney is still uptight at times, but she's opening up quickly and we're starting to see another side of her.
While she hasn't gotten over her Alchemists beliefs just yet, she continues to make decisions based on what she believes is right. And some of her actions won't be viewed favorably by the Alchemists at all. It worries me, but I'm impressed with her bravery and glad she has a conscience, unlike other Alchemists.
As for Adrian, he keeps surprising me. I feel so guilty now for not caring about him in Vampire Academy. We get to see more of his vulnerable side in this book, and it really hurt to see him down and upset because of the situation with his father and with what spirit does to his mind.
I could also include the whole thing with Rose, but I won't. I really don't think it's about that anymore. He deserves a huge hug and so does Sydney! I'm just loving and having lots of fun with the Bloodlines series.
And if you thought the ending of the first book was crazy, wait until you read the ending of The Golden Lily. I had to reread it a couple of times because it was that good. It made me wish I had the next book in my hands right now!
Thankfully I have other books to distract me in the meantime, but seriously. I need book three. With amazing characters and relationships and a very intriguing story, Bloodlines is well on it's way to becoming one of my all time favorite series. I cannot wait to read more!

No more. Not interested. Thank you very much. I am once again, the minority here among all my other goodreads friends. So why don't I like this book? These are my answers: The only action that I read about is when they got jumped and that's it. There is only one Rose Hathaway.
She is no heroine. No fighter. And she is annoying. The "intellectual" talk with the so called "date"? Just get killed already.
People I'm done. People are trying to protect her but no Thinking about love and oh.. Another rose wannabe? With the clothes, the rashness? I don't know. I am heart broken. My Adrian is no more.
Pair off with whoever you want. If I miss you, I will read the VA series but not these. The denial. The wrongs of being together and etc etc. SO, I am done.
NO WAY! I will always love Richelle Mead's work but not this spin off. View all 37 comments. Another successful buddyread with my sis Bea. You'll see her beautiful review when you click her name.
One word to fully describe the awesomeness of this book: Holy craaap! This boy is one of the best, swoon-worthy fictional guys and it's so unfair we could not see him in the flesh! After reading this book, I was left utterly speechless and blown away. It was way too good!

It was one of the most amazing installments in a series.

Because Richelle Mead apparently does not disappoint. I loved how The Golden Lily lived up to the interesting plot and romance that made the first book Bloodlines an enjoyable read. In this book, Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov 's character was greatly developed as they continued to hide under the radar of the enemies of St. Vladimir Academy. There were lots of things that happened here and new characters were introduced, too. I wasn't disappointed with the way things had panned out in this book.
The plotline was so good and the pacing was fast. No dull moments as well. It was also nice to see the non-insta-love romantic development between Sydney and Adrian. Their romance, in a way, was slow-burning and tension-fueled and I totally loved it! What also basically got me hooked was how likable the characters were.
The Golden Lily
Sydney is a female lead that I will love to befriend in real life because she is so smart, determined, and mature. I loved how she has this positive attitude that everything can be done-- no matter how difficult that thing is.
She especially encourages and inspires Adrian to be the best that he can be, and that is something.
Adrian is also one great male lead. Since Vampire Academy, this guy already took my breath away because of his humor and romantic gestures. He didn't change in this series.
In fact, his character became even better! I also loved the humor and the witty exchange of dialogues here.
When you pair Sydney and Adrian together, everything collides so perfectly!!! Apart from that, Richelle Mead also made this book even more interesting because of the side characters like Eddie , Jill , Angeline , Sonya , Trey , Dimitri , etc. The value of friendship and family love was so touching! These are my favorite lines from Adrian that basically knocked me off my feet: Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself.
I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.
After reading it, all I wanted to do was read the next book which is The Indigo Spell. It was just everything I wanted in a sequel! View all 40 comments. Feb 18, Jessica rated it it was amazing. This book was awesome. I really really enjoyed the first book, but I think this book was a lot better!
I can't wait to get the next!! If you're reading this on your phone, there are spoilers ahead, so beware! We kept hearing about these hunters over and over And after the first book, I kind of wondered if maybe all of those deaths were just Lee and not hunters After Trey started getting those bruises I wondered if th Ahh. After Trey started getting those bruises I wondered if there was something more Then after Sydney's attacker reacted the way he did, I figured out it was him.
I'm really nervous about how the hunters act towards the Moroi and what will happen in the future books. They better not hurt Adrian or anyone like that. Naturally I've been waiting for Adrian to tell Sydney how he felt for some time now. Who else picked up on how Jill was acting to Sydney was actually coming through the bond? I thought it was pretty funny how she just kept talking about how beautiful she was all the time.
I loved the night of the Halloween dance, her "teaching" him to drive who else guessed he was just pretending? I think it's so adorable that Adrian paints. The lily part was so cute! Obviously I was thrilled when they finally kissed and he confessed his feelings. But I dont think any of us were that surprised with how Sydney reacted. She's been terrified of vampires her whole life. Just because she's friends with them now doesn't mean she's going to be okay with them making out with her I'm sure she'll get over it soon.
Who else was super bored with Braydon? I think he was an awesome FRIEND for Sydney, and they definitely have a lot they can talk about, but everyone could see there wasn't any passion.
Not like the way it is with Adrian. I thought it was hilarious when he broke up with her for being "irresponsible" LOL I feel about for Jill and her love life again. Once again the book is over and she's still not with the right guy. I guess it would have been just TOO easy if her and Eddie had gotten together right away.
I'm kind of tired of Angeline though What does everyone think about Sydney's weird blood? Is it connected with her being able to do magic maybe? Guess we'll find out later.. I know she's terrified of anything magical but I think it's pretty awesome that she can make amulets and things.
I'm away from home at the moment, and won't return until tomorrow. I had no idea I'd finish this book so quickly or I'd have brought the third as well I mean how to you top Rose and Dimitri? But after I found out it was centered on Sydney Sage, the awkward Alchemist, and Adrian the sexy, flippant but loveable Moroi, I was totally on board. I loved Bloodlines and after reading this, I think the series just keeps getting better.
In this installment, we pick up right where we left off in Bloodlines. The group is minus the traitorous Kei 4. The group is minus the traitorous Keith, with Sydney making points for handling the situation so well.
Dimitri and Sonya have arrived to study spirit with Adrian. Both the vampire community and the Alchemists want to find out why, once a Strigoi is changed back into their original state, they will never be able to be turned back to Strigoi again. Sydney, Jill, and Eddie continue to attend Amberwood Prep as siblings but they have a new addition to assist in the protection of Jill: Angeline, the dhampir from the Keepers, a separatist group of Moroi, dhampir, and humans who don't care for the rules of the Moroi court.
Angeline is a fun addition to their group, and I like how she mixes things up for Jill and Eddie! Richelle Mead really shines in character development, and this is my favorite part of this story. Sydney had come a long way since we first met her in VA. Her prejudices are slowly breaking down. She is finally seeing the Moroi, and dhampirs as people, not as evil, unnatural creatures. My favorite part of her growth, though, is that in relation to Adrian.
To see them grow close, and lean on each other was a real pleasure. There are many moments of swoon and hilarity. Adrian is his usual wise-cracking self, and then Sydney can just be so clueless with social situations, you can't help but laugh. The best part with them is seeing how much they genuinely care for one another. I've always had a soft-spot for Adrian. In VA, he helped Rose so much without questions or strings attached well, maybe a little bit of string!
But I always thought he went above and beyond for her, as well as Jill. He's even more of a sweetheart in this book. There were times I would be sighing, oh Adrian!
I don't want to give anything away, but fans of "Sydrian" will not be disappointed. And you don't even know it. There is not as much action in this series as there was in VA.
I think this is because both Sydney and Adrian are not fighters. I have a feeling we will see more action in the coming books, though, and I don't think these two will be on the sidelines. Sydney's reluctant education into the world of magic continues, and I think Adrian will feel the need to be more proactive with defense, in the future. These are just speculations on my part, we shall see.
As for the ending, all I can say is WOW!! I can't wait until the next book! Thank you so much , Alexa, for lending me your precious copy!! I had a blast with all the notations! View all 59 comments.

This is where things get interesting. Verrrry interesting! The ending of The Golden Lily is almost cruel, with Richelle Mead giving us what we want and leaving us with no more pages to read.
Gone are the days of mopey and sad Adrian. He only has eyes for one rule-following, body conscious, highly-intelligent girl, who kind of hates that she likes him. Like Adrian says later, they only have centuries of prejudice and hate to overcome, right?
Small feat. Adrian wheedles his way into the small group of Moroi that Sydney actually likes and trusts. Could an Alchemist be responsible for this? Would someone be willing to break their own rules and reveal Alchemist secrets? I love how Sydney is starting to come into her own. The longer Sydney hangs around her fake family of dhampirs and Moroi, the more she begins to question the strict rules and principles she's been taught all her life.
Ever so slightly, she starts to step outside of her comfort zone, which includes dating a guy Brayden who could be her brain twin. When I said things get interesting, of course I mean in the romance department. I won't give anything away but you know how much I love a good forbidden romance, especially one with a little bit of hate and annoyance sprinkled in for good measure. This book is so much fun! Richelle Mead is like that sometimes. Audiobook Comments:His one-liners are fantastic, and we get to see a deeper and more intense side of him that VA only hinted at.
This book is so much fun! Adrian is still so lovable, but Eddie is still one of my favorite characters! Full Name Comment goes here. She claims that she doesn't know anything about love and relationships but I know better.
