Another newly-released chapter hit the web from Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy breakoff series, the first of which, Bloodlines, hits stores on August 23rd. Bloodlines is set to follow one of the secondary characters from the Vampire Academy series, Sydney, and alchemyst who helped the characters from time to time throughout the six books. Here’s the summary on Amazon:
When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive – this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.

While I was checking this out on Amazon, I saw a link to the second book in this series, The Golden Lily: A Bloodlines Novel. No details are yet listed except the release date, which is May 1st, 2012, but they did have the cover:
What do you think? It is definitely keeping in theme with the first one. The title seems odd, but I’m interested in reading it and seeing how it ties in.
