The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series
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.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

My Thoughts 
Honestly, all I can think about when it comes to The Golden Lily, is the ending. OH DEAR LORD, was it something. Because of that, I believe this review will not be as well structured. Cuz, guys, that is all I can frickin think about. Nothing else really comes to my mind. But I will try to be as coherent as possible. Oh and and if you haven't figured it out already, I really enjoyed reading The Golden Lily.

In the beginning, things were a tinchy winchy bit slow for me. I was expecting it to start up with the ending of Bloodlines as that was another OMG moment. But they didn't, oh well.  It was quite slow paced yet the events were still riveting as a whole. Though, when things picked up, they really picked up. Dude, I'm all for the action and the roller coaster moments. And we did get them, and they were good. Gotta hand it to Sydney she nearly always knows exactly what to do.

Talking about Sydney, she's... well, Sydney. The same ol' alchemist that has her mission of do-gooding. I love this girl. Even now, she doesn't fail to upset me. I love how she loves to help everyone but yet she knows her limits and definitely doesn't let anyone walk all over her. You go girl!

Oh and you guys know Adrian right? He doesn't let anyone come in the way, especially when it comes to Sydney. Like, a knight in shinning armour. So yeah, imagine that! He's so hot and I looooooooove him. This guy just makes me LOL. You'll think that everyone will realise his ulterior motives you know. For us readers, it is an obvious hit right. And don't you think it's just so so cute! I have so much love for my Adrian!

And then I have so much love for Richelle! For giving us with exactly with what we've been eagerly waiting for. Though, now I'm really skeptical with how the storyline will follow. Why did I read this book so soon! Arghhh. Having to wait a whole year for the next book, will I be able to do that? I don't think so.
