Нова рецензия на “The Golden Lily”

Being a nurse, I have pretty easy access to heart monitors. Just for fun, I would’ve liked to watch my EKG strips while reading The Golden Lily. I’d be willing to bet that I experienced a few runs of preventricular contractions. Not to mention any arterial blood gas test would probably show respiratory acidosis from the amount of pCO2 built up. (Sydney would so appreciate this talk.)

Because, you guys? SOMETIMES I DID NOT BREATHE.

Sydney. This girl is so careful and calculating, it kills me. She’s SO SQUARE. But I love the heck out of her. I cannot tell you the last time I’ve been inside the head of such an endearing character. Crippling insecurities and all, Richelle Mead has crafted the anti-Rose, but somehow made her a total boss in her own fashion. She’s the Momma Bear to Rose’s reckless, “fly by the seat of her pants” mentality. I’ve said it before, but there is not a single type of character Mead cannot write. Seeing her grow, letting her guard down, and learning to come into her own was such a fantastic experience for me. She rocked those khakis. And I’m pretty sure I read a line where she actually said, “I was going to have to research kissing.”

And Adrian. THIS is what I’ve been waiting for since Adrian’s debut in Frostbite. Sure, we got a little preview of Adrian love in Vampire Academy. That was purely means to an end and it broke my heart to see it happen. The Golden Lily opens up a whole new world of Adrian Ivashkov with his pretty, pretty words. PALPITATIONS FOR ALL. His character is so complex and beautiful and tragic. Plus, it’s pretty awesome when second-too-long looks and fingertips brushing become the key ingredients for swooning. Because Mead is a boss like that.
I can’t even FATHOM how it could get better than this. As far as action and romance go, this rivals Vampire Academy, neck and neck. I don’t know how she does it, but she’s it she’s STILL doing it. Indisputably one of YA’s most talented authors, Richelle Mead has once again blown my mind.

And, given her track record with shattering our worlds in The Third Book, we’ve got a good several months to stock up on Kleenex and Xanax. I suggest investing in the generic form, maybe? Cheaper.

Important tour info: Tour events usually start with me reading from the new book and then answering questions. You may bring your own books, from any of my series, and/or also purchase books at the store (which is nice to do, since signings are a lot of work and cost for them!). There is a three book limit per person–one will be personalized and the other two simply signed. Since that’s per person, you can get more books signed if you have your mom, friend, etc. come and bring some of your books too! Plus, they’ll keep you company in line. Pictures aren’t guaranteed, but we try really hard to make time to do them! Some stores have bracelet systems or pre-order information. I’ll post that as we get it, so please check my website in June for more details. Hope to see you soon!

За почитателите на вампирите (Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Richelle Mead)

На Romantic Times Booklovers Convention в Чикаго присъстваха много от авторите, създаващи поредици за вампири. Две от тези авторки бяха Jeaniеne Frost (“Night Huntress”) и Charlaine Harris (“True Blood”). Мисля, че за много от вас би било интересно да видите няколко от панелите, в които участваха те:

Във видеото по-долу се появява и Ришел :) :

Интервю на ShadowKissed с Ришел

Ришел отговаря на въпроси на ShadowKissed.net:

Richelle kindly answered some questions for us! So, from our vault of questions we brought out five though out questions that we thought you’d love to hear her answer! Enjoy!

What is a must-have for you when you are writing?
(Besides coffee)

My own space. I wish I was one of those writers who could write in cool locations, like parks or coffee shops. I get distracted, though, and am never fully comfortable. My best work always comes out of my own office, at my own desk. I can put my feet up, talk to my cats, and wear pajamas. A little crazy, maybe, but it gets the books done.

What was the inspiration behind writing a spin-off from VA? Did you always know you were going to, or did the idea come up mid-series?

I knew I was going to do it in the middle of the VA series, which was around the time I introduced Jill and Sydney. I originally thought Jill was going to narrate the new series, but Sydney turned out to be a better fit. Her voice and style are so unique, and it’s nice to have a human perspective on this world.

What was your favorite and least favorite part about leaving Rose’s mind and entering Sydney’s?

I love that Sydney can drop the craziest, most intellectual comments at any time. I’ve had to research some wacky topics to keep up with her! Rose was more “street smart,” so that wasn’t something I got to do a lot for her. While this isn’t my least favorite thing, I’ve been surprised at how difficult it is not swearing with Sydney. She never swears, either in thinking or speaking, but let’s face it: there are a lot of tense situations in these books that call for a few swear words. Rose never had any problem with that.

You answered a question saying that it was planned for Rose to be an Aries. What are the star signs of some of the other characters in the series?

Dimitri’s a Sagittarius, Lissa’s a Cancer, and Christian’s a Scorpio.

Is there a chance of it being revealed at some point that Dhampirs can actually have children with other Dhampirs?
It’s been speculated that they can, because Joshua told Rose that they could get married and have babies. Is there a chance of something being behind this, or was it merely an error in editing?

This was mostly an error in word choice on my part. I wanted to have Joshua go off on a crazy lovestruck ramble, painting a picture of all the things you want to do with someone you’re crazy about: get married, have kids, etc. I intended him to just not even really be thinking about what he was saying, but I shouldn’t have done that! It’s a line that’s raised a lot of questions since then.
