The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
In this book Sydney’s relationship evolves and forces her to question her Alchemist beliefs as well as her sense of right and wrong. She reluctantly experiments with the magic that scares her so much but only because it might be the key to stopping Strigoi. Although she is still all business, she does begin dating a super smart guy she meets but the romantic feelings she has for Adrian still tug at her heart.
This book was such a fast read because I couldn’t put the book down. I carried it everywhere with me as I have for all of the Vampire Academy books. I love how Bloodlines is a spin-off series but has all the lure of the original books. Now I’m just waiting for the next book, The Indigo Spell, to come out next month.
