Description de l'ouvrage

8 janvier 2013 Bloodlines (Livre 2)
The thrilling second installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series--and a #1 New York Times Bestseller--now in paperback

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?

Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Bon, je ne vais pas dire que c'est un chef d'oeuvre qui défrayera les chroniques littéraires, mais "The Golden Lily" est une excellente lecture estivale pour ados et adultes, idéale pour se changer les idées.
Ce tome est le 2e de la série Bloodlines, qui est elle-même la suite de la série Vampire Academy (sans Rose Hattaway, mais on y retrouve Dimitri). Si le 1er tome (Bloodlines) ne m'a pas vraiment convaincue - mais suffisamment toutefois pour avoir envie de lire la suite, celui-ci vous captivera nettement plus.
Richelle Mead a le pouvoir de vous lier pieds et poings à ses livres. Tout d'abord parce qu'elle a une imagination débordante, et qu'elle parvient toujours à concocter des aventures surprenantes et addictives. Ensuite, et surtout, elle a le don de créer des personnages charismatiques, dotés même pour certains d'une vraie beauté intérieure. C'est le cas ici d'Adrian et Sydney, pour qui je n'éprouvais pourtant guère plus de sympathie au départ. A l'inverse de Dimitri et Rose, ces deux là sont mal dans leur vie, pétris de doutes, et traumatisés par leur famille... Ce qui va les "rapprocher" bien plus qu'ils ne l'auraient voulu.
Voilà, je n'en dirai pas plus... Juste que je suis pressée de lire la suite.
Enjoy !

Merci de m'avoir lue.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 très bon comme tjrs avec Richelle Mead 7 mars 2013
Par Betty
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
le tome 2 de la série Bloodlines (sur laquelle je mets plus bas un commentaire général) voit la progression des relations entre les deux héros, la découverte de l'existence de chasseurs de vampires (anciens alchimistes séparés idéologiquement des autres) et la tension des rapports entre Sydney et son enseignante sur l'usage de la magie. La présence d'Angeline (découverte aussi dans Vampire academy) renouvelle aussi les rapports entre Jillian et son gardien. Récit efficace et plein de charme et d'humour bien sûr ! Toutes les intrigues évoluent parallèlement et nouent la suite de façon utile et drôle.

Comme toujours avec Richelle Mead, les personnages sont attachants, les personnalités des héros principaux suffisamment riches et le récit est rapide et humoristique. Cet auteur est extraordinaire et réussit toutes ses séries (Succubus, Vampire academy et Bloodlines, spin off de Vampire academy), à l'exception de la série sur Eugénie (Le cygne noir).
L'ouvrage se lit donc constamment avec le sourire, sauf quand l'action nous prend. Certes nous devinons avant les héros qui sont les coupables mais donner ce sentiment de supériorité aux lecteurs est sans doute une habileté de plus de l'auteur.
De plus, comme dans ses autres séries, l'auteur sait préparer la suite des révélations en donnant des informations qui paraissent anodines et se révèlent fondamentales. Ces révélations portent soit sur le tome en cours soit sur les autres (puisque pour cette série trois tomes sont déjà parus aux USA).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even better than Bloodlines! 14 juin 2012
Par Gretchen @ My Life is a Notebook - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I picked up this book on the release date and proceeded to finish it in three hours. Despite the fact that I was supposed to be cheering on my brother at his Little League game.

And I regret nothing.

If you have not yet heard me fangirling about this series yet, well, you're about to. Because *insert fangirl squealing here*.

I'll admit, I wasn't a fan of the idea of these books at the beginning. After all, in the VA series Adrian and Sydney weren't really that big in my mind. I was a hardcore Dimitri/Rose shipper and found Adrian cute but in the way. Sydney I just didn't find particularly interesting with Rose at the front and center.

Bloodlines, I have to admit, was good. The Golden Lily? BETTER.

I liked Sydney in Bloodlines. I loved her in The Golden Lily. I liked Adrian in Bloodlines. I LOVED HIM IN THE GOLDEN LILY.

*Mild spoiler warning*

Adrian turned into such a different person in this book. In the VA series especially, he was a big cliché of a slacker dude. In The Golden Lily, though, he really comes into his own. The depth that he shows and the personality past the snark and slacking was utterly amazing. Plus, it didn't feel like this sudden turn around. Mead made me believe that this was really under there all along. I will never give up on Dimitri because HELLO SEXY but Adrian?

HELLO ADORABLE MARRY ME NOW.

I was really not expecting the Sydney/Adrian scenes to go like then did. I especially didn't expect Sydney to get a boyfriend. That in itself was awkwardly adorable, but again DUDE IN THE WAY OF THE REAL LOVE. Mead, you love to torture us so. Adrian's attempts to hang out with Sydney through subtle ruses was way too overt coupled with Jill's apparent "crush" on Sydney, though. I mean, we got it, really. And Sydney, HOW DENSE CAN YOU BE?

Oh, oh, should I be talking about the other stuff in the book? Crap. Uh. I also enjoyed finding out what Trey's sun tattoo meant, and seeing Jill grow up a little in regards to her situation. The whole Eddie/Angeline/Jill thing seemed a little contrived to me, but I'll let it slide because I'm here for the Sydney/Adrian, really.

One of the biggest changes for me is the fact that there is a lot less action then I seem to always expect. After all, Rose was THE most active person ever, getting into fights at every chance. Sydney, of course, is the brainy chick who was not raised to be a fighter and that necessitates a different form of "action." Because of this, it almost seemed like The Golden Lily moves slower than any of the VA books, when there really is a lot going on. My brain has yet to process this.

I really wanted the whole witch thing to be delved into a little more, but with everything else going on there wasn't really room for it anyways. Still, the next book doesn't come out til 2013, come o-

The next book doesn't come out til 2013 and SHE LEFT IT WITH THAT ENDING? WHY, MEAD, WHY?!?

I may die of anticipation.

Also, by the way, if you were expecting a coherent review you weren't listening to me when I said FANGIRL HERE.

And because the fangirl really is here now I ... should probably stop typing. Bottom line?

Bloodlines < The Golden Lily

IT'S THAT GOOD.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good installment! 12 juin 2012
Par Tynga's Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
After facing death by strogoi, Sydney is now back to her normal life, or whatever pass as normal with her latest mission. She poses as Jill's sister (a moroi princess in hiding) along side with Adrian & Eddy (her supposedly brothers) and Angeline (their fictional cousin). Along with the merry gang are former strogoi Dimitri & Sonia, trying to discover why strogoi restored by spirit magic can't be turned again. At first look it seems to be all fun but things gets complicated when a band of human attack Sydney and Sonia, wanting to kill the latter because "she's an evil creature of the night". What a mood killer!

If you remember, Bloodlines had been a bit of a let down for me, but I'm happy to report that I think The Golden Lily was better! To my dismay, Jill still won't be in danger in that book, which honestly bothers me because the whole mission was set to protect her from vindictive moroi who might want to kill her to remove Lissa from the throne, but this latest installment brought a lot of interesting elements to the table.

Let me start by talking romance because surprisingly there's a lot of it! Jill's relationship with Eddy's roommate Micah evolve, to Eddy's dismay because he's in love with her, but Eddy isn't left out as new comer Angeline has it big for him. The whole situation would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic. Poor Jill is completely blind to Eddie's affections and his broken heart is hard to bare. On the other hand Angeline won't miss an occasion to rub herself against him, oblivious to his disgust toward the whole thing. I could really picture his discomfited expression, holding back eye rolls because it wouldn't be professional. This love square (?) evolve in a rather interesting manner during the course of this installment, and I can't wait to see where it'll go from there in the next book.

Beyond all expectations, Sydney will also have some "romance" of her own. I use quotation marks here because let's be honest, Sydney's definition of romance is kind of sketchy. She meets a barista that's just as stuck up and socially inept as she is, which makes for some really awkward moments, for the reader's enjoyment. Watching them around each other I didn't know if I wanted to burst out laughing or bang my head on a wall, let's say it was entertaining in a weird way. Sydney also has a love triangle of her own even though she is completely oblivious to it. Adrian really pays her special attentions, in the sweetest way and I loved every moment. You can see that she is really special to him, even though he doesn't want to want her and she really has no clue. Their interactions really were the stellar point of this novel for me.

Now let's talk about some plot shall we? Sydney is no Rose, and the Bloodlines series can't compare to Vampire Academy action wise, but The Golden Lily took it up a notch this time around and I was pleased. Attacks, kidnapping and rescues are on the menu and it did wonders to Sydney's otherwise intellectual habits. After being helpless in a situation, Sydney decided to take matters in hands and take self defense classes, and she even considered magic as a potential defensive option, which showed a lot of growth on her part, considering how deadpan her opinions usually are on the matter. The situations she faces will really push her to grow, which makes me really excited because she used to be borderline boring with all her self restrain. Richelle also brought to the game a new interesting faction in the strogoi/moroi/dhampir/alchemist world and I'm curious about the fall out.

The conclusion was surprisingly action-packed and the very end was a shocker. I don't want to tell you anything about it, because it would suck to spoil it for you, but I was ecstatic, bewildered and stunned all at once. I'm highly anxious to see how everything will play out in the next book with the bomb Richelle Mead dropped right at the end! The third book in the series, which as no title as of yet, is scheduled for release in 2013, and the wait might just kill me!

Overall, The Golden Lily was a great installment in the Bloodlines series, making me hopeful for the upcoming books. Romance, action & witty comebacks are on the menu, everything to please adults and young adults alike.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome! 14 juillet 2012
Par brandileigh2003 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
My biggest complaint about this book was the tortuous (to my heart) ending, and the lack of updates on my beloved Rose. And since Richelle has done this to me before, leaving me hanging and wanting so much more, I really expected it, though I have some awesome things to hold on to until Indigo Spell is released. As far as Rose, I know that this series isn't above her, it's about Sydney and Jill, along with smoking hot Adrian, but through Dimitri I hoped we might get a small guest appearance or something... But, that might just make it even harder to let go.
So, notice that my biggest complaints were really praises for Richelle's writing? Yeah, safe to say that I totally enjoyed this book. Sydney is such a different main character from Rose, but she is still compelling, and it is such character growth to watch her struggle against what she has been taught her whole life and what she sees with her eyes, and feels with her heart. Are humans really capable of being as evil as vampires? Would you take a room of vamps that you trust over a group of humans that seem to be out to get you? Her answers were once crystal clear, but now, more and more she is changing.
It is really hard to write the review without spoiling anything, but I loved to watch Sydney and Adrian. Getting the closer view into Adrian and what he is dealing with is exactly what I wanted at the end of Vampire Academy, and this series is delivering. His one-liners are fantastic, and we get to see a deeper and more intense side of him that VA only hinted at.
I love Richelle Mead's young adult books (I haven't tried the adult ones yet, so can't speak for them), and she does not disappoint with this fast paced, page turning sequel and spin off.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you liked Bloodlines, you'll LOVE the Golden Lily!! 17 juin 2012
Par Kirstin - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is - hands down - my new favorite book of 2012! My only complaint about Golden Lily is that it caused me to lose sleep. I finished this book in one day...and what an emotional day that was!

Normally I would write a little synopsis of the book, but not this time. Richelle Mead's work speaks for itself. If you're considering this book, chances are you've probably not only read Bloodlines, but also the entire Vampire Academy series; if you haven't...then welcome to the Richelle fan club. With that said I'm just going to write a few little tidbits about some of the character development within this second installment of the Bloodlines series.

Richelle Mead leads us back to Palm Springs and back into the lives of Jill, Eddie, Sydney, Adrian, and Angeline. We also see more appearances from Dmitri and Sonya Karp than we did in Bloodlines.

Sydney goes through a lot of personal and emotional growth in this sequel. She not only learns more about the real history of Alchemists, but she also starts to realize that she has more loyalty and tolerance for the Moroi and Dhampir races...and that scares her because she doesn't want that info to get back to the Alchemists because they would send her to the re-education center (which she is terrified of). The prejudice that her upbringing taught her (both from her father and the Alchemists) is very hard for her to overcome and she battles with it every day. The decisions that she makes along her journey in this book will make you.... (Nope, not going to give spoilers, it's MUCH better to not know what's going to happen - trust me, it will be worth the wait.)

And let us not forget about the sexy, and ever-inebriated, Adrian. For anyone who fell in love with Adrian during the Vampire Academy series (or even if you just discovered him in Bloodlines), be prepared to completely swoon over him yet again. We've all adored this sexy man who seems like he's in a constant battle with his mental health (thanks to his spirit magic), but in this book Adrian takes it to an all new level. I won't give more details and spoil the plots twists & turns, but just know that hiding his feelings behind his sardonic quips and his constant smoking and drinking just isn't going to cut it this time.

Buy Golden Lily and get lost in between the pages. I will definitely be reading this book a couple more times before Bloodlines #3: The Indigo Spell comes out on February 12, 2013!!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Love & hate relationship with Sydney Sage 24 juillet 2012
Par Jovana J - Publié sur Amazon.com

Oh Sydney, Sydney.
Sometimes I truly love you - your quick wit, unapologetic intellect, use of rationale and logic, and even your strange awkwardness brings certain level of humor. Sometimes I just wish you'd jump off the tallest building in the world and let Bloodlines be narrated by someone less self-involved and not as bipolar as you.

Sydney is equally the strong and weak part of these novels, particularly in Golden Lily. I had a better sense and compassion for her character in Bloodlines because she was just a brainy chick with an obligation, duty and sense of loyalty. While all that is still present in Golden Lily, I felt overall sense of worship of Sydney throughout the book. Richelle Mead tried REALLY hard to convince me how EVERYONE but Sydney think she's perfect, flawless, incredible, awesome etc. Even in the middle of HUGE crisis, the author still found a way for someone to compliment Sydney's "perfect haircut". What is Mead trying to achieve here, except random rambling and worship of a rather boring, smart girl without any real personality.

Mild spoilers (no major twists or plotlines revealed):

Nothing really happens in this book until the very end. Everyone is still trying to protect Jill, few new characters are introduced and Sydney gets a super boring boyfriend - as boring as her at times. That relationship had no purpose but to give Adrian more opportunity at snark and sarcasm. But then again, Adrian is the SAVING grace of these books so Sydney's boring boyfriend ended up being a useful addition. He never rises above being just that - a plot device. Nobody even knows or cares to remember his name. Thats how lame he is.

Sydney's inner battle with food and body issues annoyed the crap out of me because it never felt real or genuine. Its purpose was for others to compliment her perfect human body, again. Everything about Sydney is perfect even when she doesn't see it, because she's sooooooo awkward. Even her aura is the best aura there is. I can't remember last time character irritated me so much. She holds strong beliefs against Vampires and non-humans yet is obsessed with Moroi Jill's perfect model body so she counts calories and gets disgusted by butter and sugar. How is ANY OF THIS relevant to the story or her characters, I have no idea. Richelle did huge disservice to her heroine by making her so bipolar and creating such big conflict in personality that I kept losing sense of who Sydney is. She's supposed to be timid, awkward and lack social skills (she had to google "kissing", I mean CMON!!), but yet is constantly surrounded by friends who think she's flawless & hot boys who are taking interest. Which one will it be?? Do I even care anymore? Well I care about Adrian. I'm a proud Adrian groupie and will be reading Indigo Spell just because I need more of him. He grew so much as a character.

Don't get me wrong, Sydney does have some amazing qualities to her that I love and appreciate, at least enough to keep me reading further. Im hoping Indigo Spell relies less on mundane BS and establishes Sydney's identity because at this point, she has none.
