I don't get why the protagonist would be attracted to the "bad guy". He's irresponsible and mooches off her money. And constantly postures. Why would someone so competent have any patience with that?
And on a minor note, she is fastidious about her studies and work in general but apparently not her grammar. "Me, neither" is the correct response, not "Me either". It jars a bit.

Book 2 in Bloodlines series, preceded by Bloodlines and followed by Indigo Spells. This series is not as good as VA but it is still very enjoyable. Finally both Adrian and Sydney are becoming better characters - let's see where that takes us

Such a great sequel to Bloodlines. I loved Bloodlines and was hoping that this book would live up to Bloodlines' standards. And it sure did. I devoured this book in a day and am now moving on to Indigo Spell.

I loved the Vampire Academy series and the the first book of the Bloodlines series. I thought this book was great. I couldn't put it down at all, i just wanted to keep reading. I thought the ending was great but I don't want to wait until next year to find out what happens next. Great book to read whether your into vampires or not.

Richelle Mead always writes amazing books. This is the second book in the Bloodlines series and although it did drag, about 200 pages in it started to pick up. I was secretly wanting Rose to pop up through out the book, I was not disappointed with the story line. I cannot wait for the third book to come out and can only hope this series is as good as Vampire Academy.

Just finished the second book in the Bloodlines series and while it was interesting, I must say that it dragged a bit for me. Yes, the ending was great - and I did want to slap Sidney too - but not altogether unpredictable. Many story points were actually quire predictable. Regardless, it is still great entertainment and I will definitely read the next installment. Oh, and do read the Vampire Academy series first. It will make you appreciate and like this spin off, and help you tollerate some of its shortcoming too.

Very good book! Hints of forbidden romance with lovable characters and an interesting plot... what's not to love?

I would HIGHLY suggest reading this book. If you're new to the series, I would suggest reading "Bloodlines" first, the first book in the series. Just make sure to put "Golden Lilly" on your holds list, because you will immediately want to start reading this one once you're finished! http://seattle.bibliocommons.com/item/show/2723556030_bloodlines

The second book in Richelle Meads series about Sydney Sage. An human alchemist pledged to keep the world of vampires under wraps, she finds herself increasingly conflicted. She is beginning to really enjoy the vamps' company. On assignment helping to keep a vamp in hiding, she ponders her own changing attitudes toward both her own people, and the creatures of the night.

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.
