I'm sure as that you, as I am are eagerly awaiting the release of Richelle Mead's The Golden Lily. It is the second in the vampire academy spin off series Bloodlines. If you have read Bloodlines the like me you will understand when I say the last line of the book made me throw the book halfway across the room out of frustration. I loved that book but the huge cliff hanger was just SO unfair! I suppose it did make me a lot more excited for The Golden Lily though.
Anyway the synopsis, release date and some comments from Richelle Mead herself about The Golden Lily has been released (yay!). So if you haven't read Bloodlines then I suggest you don't read any further, and if you do it's your own fault if you find out something before you read it. Don't say I didn't warn you! Here's the synopsis:
“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.”
You are probably thinking 'Those were rubbish spoilers!' and you are correct the actual spoilers are what Richelle Mead herself had to say about the unreleased Golden Lily.
"I'm still writing it, and in the past we have had major plot lines completely deleted, and so I'm like, I'd hate to tell you something that never shows up,"
(That would be disappointing)
"I can tell you Sydney will get a little romance in her life. It's probably not going to be what readers are expecting-slash-hoping for initially. That's been a lot of fun for me, writing Sydney dating."
(So in other words the Sydney/Adrian relationship is not happening- Yet anyway)
"We're going to learn a little bit more about something that was hinted at in 'Bloodlines,' about whether or not there are such things as vampire hunters in the world. They start to pick up that maybe that's not such the myth that they thought. It's going to be the usual split of an action plot going on along with various romantic entanglements."
(Dimitri will probably take the lead in the mystery investigation things - POOR ADRIAN)
"I know a lot of readers are geared up for romance, and there's plenty of that, so they can rest easy, especially as the series progresses the first one is a little light. I'm going to get some more of those."
It sounds absolutely fantastic doesn't it? The Golden Lily will be released on the 1st of May 2012. I CAN'T WAIT! I would rate it 5/5 stars and I haven't even read it yet! What do you think will happen, get in touch with me with your predictions.Email me at: confessionsofabookaholic@LIVE.CO.UK
