Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead, A Review

This is the last book, book six, in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. If you haven’t read the books up to this point, this review does contain spoilers… Proceed with caution!

Rose is locked up for the murder of Queen Tatiana which, obviously, she is innocent of. However, do you picture Rose taking it easy in her sterile jail cell? Heck No, she is putting up a tough fight even if it is from behind bars.

However, Rose is not the only one that can be wild and make a scene. Perhaps she has rubbed off on her friends because, let’s just say, when they figure out a way for her to escape captivity, it goes off with a BANG!

Rose was prepared to devote her life to protecting Lissa. She was ready to give up personal freedom and her ability to choose her own path. Now, Lissa is proving she can protect Rose and she is also showing that she too can be quite the badass.

Rose does escape and she sets off across country with Dimitri. Throughout her journey, she comes in contact with all kinds of new and old faces which creates what are at times brief, but very entertaining, appearances by some of these characters.

This journey is a great summation to the the development of Rose’s character over the course of this six book series. It shows off Rose’s strength, her honesty, her innate sense of goodness and her ability to forgive others, even to forgive herself for her mistakes. We are all full of imperfections like Rose, but also like Rose, everyone has the ability to be fierce. Fiercely loyal, fiercely good and fiercely in love. This last journey with Rose can teach us all some life lessons.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead, A Review

This review contains spoilers if you haven’t read up to this fifth book in the Vampire Academy series. Proceed with caution!




ROSE! At the beginning of this book I feel really bad for her, however, I know that if she knew I felt bad for her she would definitely be pissed and may possibly punch me. The reason I feel bad for Rose is because not only does she know Strigoi Dimitri survived her attack but he is sending her letters, letters that simultaneously say he loves her and that he is going to kill her when he gets the opportunity. If I were Rose, I would be flipping out, but Rose is so strong and she, of course, is handling this incredibly well. I am very glad she is able to confide in her best friend Lissa who is able to offer moral support.

While all of this is going on, Rose has to face her trials. This is her final test that will measure her ability and skills fighting for and protecting Moroi from Strigoi. The results of this test will determine her future. How do you think Rose did? Well, after all the REAL Strigoi attacks and kills she has made, you can imagine that this may not be the most difficult test for her.

Lissa and Rose have plans after they graduate but may they may not be what you assume. Rose wants to get in touch with Victor Dashkov. Yes, THE Victor Dashkov that tortured Lissa into healing him in the first book of this series. They actually want to ask him for his help. They want to know more about his brother, a recluse Spirit user who possibly knows how to heal a Strigoi and return them to their original state.

I must admit, as this series continues, each book really is becoming more and more emotional for me. I am completely invested in this story and I can honestly say that although this is fantasy, so much of the underlying drama and especially how Rose expresses herself, it feels all too real.

I love this series and I cant believe I only have one book left to read and then its OVER! What will I do with my life? Well, to hold off the inevitable, I am going to read The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo before I complete this amazing series.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!!

Blood Promise by Richelle Mead, A Review

This fourth book in the Vampire Academy series does not disappoint: full of non-stop action, heartbreak, and surprises, and yet it still leaves me wanting more!

This review does contain spoilers if you haven’t read the first three books in the Vampire Academy series.

Rose has finally left school but it’s not because she graduated. She has given up her life of guarding her best friend Lissa for a greater purpose, finding Dimitri. Rose loves Dimitri more than anything but he has been turned into a Strigoi and her mission now is to find him and kill him. This would fulfill his wishes. Dimitri always said, and Rose agreed, that if he was ever turned he would rather die than live his life as a Strigoi.

Rose finds herself in Siberia, but even though she is thousands of miles away from Lissa she can still have a one-way connection with her through their bond. However, Rose does not like what she is seeing through Lissa’s eyes. Lissa has made a new friend, Avery, and although she seems caring, Avery certainly puts Lissa in some bad positions which leaves Rose wishing she could be there for her best friend.

This book is so packed with heartwrenching drama that I could barely handle it. I highly recommend continuing the Vampire Academy series with this incredible addition.
