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.
As you can probably guess, I loved this book (shocker). I mean, I don’t see how I couldn’t. So much happened in this book compared to the others in the series, not to mention I did not expect anything that happened.
In order to avoid repetition from the other reviews in this series, I want to talk about what I found different that I liked, because we all know Rose just keeps getting better and better. I was happily surprised at how much I liked Lissa in this book. She was just so whiny and weak in the other books, I knew she was a necessary character but I just couldn’t bring myself to like her. In this book I felt that her character really stepped it up. She was (not to Rose standards) strong and independent, more so than any other book so far. She actually wanted to help Rose and really just got over her ‘Moroi’ and decided that not just her needs were important.
So I like Adrian, I think he is a great character and fits in perfectly with the book. But, I don’t like him for Rose. I mean come on, no matter what Dimitri is, he will always be the one that stole Rose’s heart. I think Rose does like Adrian, but just not as much. I found that I was getting frustrated because Rose is leading him on and using him when her heart still belongs to Dimitri no matter what kind of person he is, it’s kind of adorable really.
So overall, loved this book, again. I need to start reading the next and last one ASAP but college makes that difficult 😦
