    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "An Excellent Sequel!"

    What disappointed you about The Golden Lily?

    The narration ruined this for me. I couldn't do it. In the beginning I didn't like her voice for Sydney, but I thought I would get over it. (I thought she sounded far to naive, flakey and well frankly... Dumb, which if your familiar with the stories, is very much not the case.) But when the voices for the other characters came in (ESPECIALLY any male character.) I realised I wasn't being overly critical. It really was that bad. In my defense I gave it about a quarter of the book to grow on me hoping I'd get used to it. I couldn't take it any more. I bought the hard cover of the book and instantly deleted the download.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Shaffer?

    Suzanne Collins did a great job with the hunger games. Didn't sound flakey as the girl characters or overly compensate with the male voices.
