The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead, A Review

Sydney Sage is a stickler for everything to be in perfect order. So, still, she finds herself feeling weird ferrying around Vampires. However, even Sydney is beginning to wonder who the real monsters are after the climactic ending of the first book in the Bloodlines Series. This includes confusion about everything her fellow Alchemists are a part of, including (definitely) Keith.

One thing that Sydney is really worried about is how the Alchemists vehemently disapprove of any of their members actually getting close to any Vampires. While she does truly feel uneasy around her Moroi charges, she is very much so on a friendly basis with them. The thing is, that if any of the higher up Alchemists found out just how friendly, she would be sent straight to the horrible Re-Education Center.

I think my favourite part of The Golden Lily is that Sydney actually (Surprise! Surprise!) gets a boyfriend. And the best part is that she is completely clueless about what to do, how to act and how to feel. This, even though Sydney tries looking it up in a book, unfortunately does not come with directions. Even better than all of this, is the end of the book which involves someone else… and a serious cliffhanger!

I highly recommend this series for lovers of Vampire Academy!! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, A Review

This is the beginning of the follow up series to Vampire Academy, obviously entitled Bloodlines. (Which, by the way, this title takes on a much more significant meaning by the end of this first book).

Sydney is an alchemist and has a lot of experience working with Dhampir’s and Moroi closely. However, this hasn’t boded well for her after the insane events last summer ending the Vampire Academy series. She is currently on indefinite suspension. Yet, everything changes, and changes fast, when a new assignment comes up that only she can fulfill.

I like Sydney, she’s a very cool person… BUT, I do not like the overall Alchemist belief that all Moroi and Dhampir are wrong, as if they break the rules of what is natural and acceptable. I can see the point, because of course they do, but I just never like any kind of person being stigmatised for being different. (Except Strigoi, of course).

This book places Sydney very close to some Moroi and Dhampirs, testing her and challenging her beliefs. There is high school drama of the typical kind mixed right in with the more supernatural drama of strange attacks on Moroi. This book really has everything that I wanted and then some. I highly recommend this!

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead, A Review

This is the last book, book six, in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. If you haven’t read the books up to this point, this review does contain spoilers… Proceed with caution!

Rose is locked up for the murder of Queen Tatiana which, obviously, she is innocent of. However, do you picture Rose taking it easy in her sterile jail cell? Heck No, she is putting up a tough fight even if it is from behind bars.

However, Rose is not the only one that can be wild and make a scene. Perhaps she has rubbed off on her friends because, let’s just say, when they figure out a way for her to escape captivity, it goes off with a BANG!

Rose was prepared to devote her life to protecting Lissa. She was ready to give up personal freedom and her ability to choose her own path. Now, Lissa is proving she can protect Rose and she is also showing that she too can be quite the badass.

Rose does escape and she sets off across country with Dimitri. Throughout her journey, she comes in contact with all kinds of new and old faces which creates what are at times brief, but very entertaining, appearances by some of these characters.

This journey is a great summation to the the development of Rose’s character over the course of this six book series. It shows off Rose’s strength, her honesty, her innate sense of goodness and her ability to forgive others, even to forgive herself for her mistakes. We are all full of imperfections like Rose, but also like Rose, everyone has the ability to be fierce. Fiercely loyal, fiercely good and fiercely in love. This last journey with Rose can teach us all some life lessons.
