Good if...you're a fan of the VAMPIRE ACADEMY series
Once again, I'm totally obsessed with this new series! It's a spin-off series from Richelle Mead's VAMPIRE ACADEMY series. This series follows Sydney--the Alchemist (a group whose purpose is to cover up the existence of Vampires from regular humans) Rose met in Russia. This was book #2 in the new series. Book #1, BLOODLINES, was an excellent debut. A bunch of my favorite characters were back again! Sydney. Adrian. Jill. Eddie. And in this second book we also see Dimitri and Sonya! It's a fantastic addition to this already awesome series (one that's quickly becoming a favorite). I liked this novel even more than the first! They both were awesome so that was hard to do. I found myself neglecting everything else in my life to hurry through read this novel. I just couldn't get enough. And the ending was the best part. It defiantly left room for more books to come, but it was so dramatic that I had to reread the last chapter three times. It's been stuck in my head for days now.
Basically, I can't praise this book enough. Go out and get BLOODLINES and THE GOLDEN LILY right away! They won't disappoint. (Still I recommend reading the VAMPIRE ACADEMY series first, just so you have a better understand of the characters' backgrounds.)
Overall recommendation: READ IT NOW!
