Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong...

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.

I love it!!!!!!!

Ok, now trying to be a little less biased...

Even though Rose is now out of high school she has not changed a bit. Grown up she has, but maybe not to what most people want her to be. A quiet little girl who only defends and never gives her opinion? That is so not Rose. She is the kind of girl who runs into a battle, the girl who never gives up on the people she loves, the girl who SPEAKS UP. And that is a lot of what happened on this book really. There was a lot of problems and controversy in this book, Should Moroi defend themselves a bit more? Are Strogoi really able to change back to something less evil? Should Dhampires get out of high school 2 years before they're time? Yes a lot of problems in the vampire world.

But what about Rose's world? Well, Dimitri is still on the run promising to kill her the instant she steps out of High School. And Adrian is still alive! He ans Rose are trying to make it work, and even though I believe that in another world they would be great together, in a world where Dimitri still breathes this relationship is never going to succeed. But that is just lil old me talking...

Lisa is a rock star in this book. I love her, not more than Rose but still. In the parts where Rose had to take the back seat and let Lisa shine I never got bored. Not once. I like seeing the world through Lissa's eyes, and I just loved to see Christian and her struggle to win the break up (even though they still love each other).

Shocking things happen, bad and good things. This book had so many twists and turns, and I really believe that we got a pretty good picture of the "adult" life of the girls. There are no more excuses, no more passes, it's life or death now. It's the real world, and there is no teacher or guide to save your ass.

Also the summary may sound like everything is about Rose and Dimitri, but I believe this book is more about Rose and how she deals with the outside world. Of course there is Dimitri drama (thank god for that), but it's more than the romance believe me. It's great! And I can't wait for Last Sacrifice (even though it's the last one T_T)

As you read the book you will feel as if transported into the vampires world, it's like watching a movie in your head. You don't even notice the letter on the page because you are too engrossed on the story. And long after you are finished with the last page of the book you will still think about everything that happen.

What can I say? I loved it!

PS; The ending? Total cliffhanger. Could NOT have been worst. Actually, on a second thought, it could have been worse lol


  1. Great review. I want to read this one soooo badly!

  2. I finished this book weeks ago and am still trying to figure out what's going to happen next! I'm so torn on who I want Rose to end up with. I think either Adrian or Dmitri is going to die. I'll cry either way :(

    Great review!

  3. Very nice review,Taschima.And I will agree with you, not everything is about Rose and Dimitri in this book.There is so much more going on,that in the end you feel that there was not enough romance after all!But it doesn't really matter.Despite the vampires and all the supernatural elements,the characters in the books are so realistically written, that you cannot but connect with them and feel for them right away.They could be friends,family,people you care about.Or don't.This is the secret ingredient other books lack in and that is what makes VA an amazing and brilliant series.
    I have been reading amazing reviews for this book from all the bloggers and I get a bit emotional because I love this series and I'm glad to see there are other people who feel the same.

    Of course it could be a worse cliffhanger!!Remember Shadow Kiss??? *shudders*

  4. Glad you liked it so much! I know you were supper excited to read it :)
    I haven't started on this series yet...but I will! I swear!

  5. Man, I need to read this series. Everyone seems to love these books. I purchased the first three books a little while back and still haven't gotten to them. :( Hopefully the summer will give me more time to do so.

    Also, great review! :)

  6. I could not agree with you more on this review. I was in love from the first page of Vampire Academy on.... I can't believe that we have to wait until December... AHHHHHHHH!

  7. I loved it too! Great review!
    (Though I am in the minority I guess and team adrian :D )

  8. Awesome review! I want to read this book right now, but I'm waiting for the paperback version. Can't believe it doesn't come out before November!

  9. This book was awesome! I loved it. Can't wait until December for Last Sacrifice
