Golden Lilly (book 2) - Richelle Mead

This is a series book. This is book 2 in the Bloodlines Series. Please see the bottom for links to reviews on each book thus far.

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.

Wow, Richelle has done it again! She always amazes me with her attention to detail in her characters, and Bloodlines is no different. In this book we carry on after the episode with Keith and Lee and start out with Sydney meeting up with the alchemists for what one would think would be a debrief after the whole tattoo debacle. This is the first twist in this book and unfortunately I in this book it doesn't seem to tell you any more, kinda like a geisha showing her hand to give you a small tease into the world of alchemists. Carry on and we start all of the testing for figuring out why someone who has been "unturned" strigoi can never turn back. And never fear, Ms. Terwilliger is still there stirring up trouble in Sydney's already torn mind. She continues to press into Sydney by way of forcing her to copy spells in her extra period.

This review earns four hearts, not because this book was bad in any way really, it was just slightly predictable. However, I'm starting to wonder if any book is ever not going to be predictable for me anymore... Overall, the characters are still developing and yet, they are still so perfectly whole! You see into the mind of not only Sydney in this venture, but one other character and get to know them quite well. (as if you didn't already know them! HA!)
