The Golden Lily - New Synopsis

Sunday, 18 March 2012

Hello everyone, I know what your thinking. 'You've already shared the synopsis with us Emily!" And yes you would be correct in thinking that but...
I went with the Goodreads synopsis and I just found a waaay better one on Richelle Mead's website. I must warn you it is quite spoiler-ish so if you haven't read Bloodlines DON'T READ THIS! I'm so excited!!!

Here it is (It's long!):

"Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives. Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she's been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don't die. But it's her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her. When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney's loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.
Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?"
So who do you think the 'forbidden' person is? I'm positive I know. The synopsis doesn't tell us anything about it but I'm still hoping for a bromance between Adrian and Dimitri. It could happen! So tell me your predictions.

I dont think we'll ever see a bromance between Adrian and Dimitri. Sad, I know. But I think by the end of the book we'll at least see a mutual respect. Hopefully Adrian can move past Rose and see his true potential. Maybe Sonya can help him. She has a soothing way with people.
