Spoilers ahead! I'm not recapping these chapters in Bloodlines and The Golden Lily, but I do refer to some things that happen in them. These posts are to give some commentary and behind-the-scenes info for people who want to read along (or re-read) with me or walk down memory lane. If you haven't read the books, you might have some surprises ruined. So maybe go grab a copy and read along as we count down to The Indigo Spell! :)
THESE POSTS ARE NOT ABOUT THE INDIGO SPELL! You're safe if you've read the first two books in the series.
The Golden Lily, Chapter 3
Here we go, Adrian and Dimitri in the same room. Every time I go back and read this scene, I'm torn on whether their little tiff there should've been more intense. But then, that would've involved one of them being more of a jerk, and I really don't like to see either of them that way. I love both of those guys. The scene ends with Sydney coming to Adrian's rescue with a little teasing, so that's really what counts.
Sonya's come a long way, hasn't she? We first saw her in Vampire Academy as a crazed teacher in Rose's flashbacks. Later, we saw her in full-on scary Strigoi mode and then traumatized restored-Moroi mode. After everything she's been through, she's kind of got this wise, Zen view on life and has really stepped up now that she's using her biology background to run these spirit experiments. Sydney and Adrian do a lot of advising to others, and it's nice for them to sort of have a competent figure to counsel them when it's needed. Keep an eye on Sonya's observations of Sydney and Adrian in this book and The Indigo Spell. She's an aura watcher, and you may recall in the VA series how she could sense the relationship between Rose and Dimitri. She's too cautious to say anything, but she sees a lot when she looks at Sydney and Adrian.
If you missed it, I've got a few more tour dates on the calendar. Also, there's another Twitter chat tomorrow!
