Rose Hathaway knows it is forbidden to love another guardian. Her best friend, Lissa-the last Dragomir princess-must always come first. Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov, some rules are meant to be broken...
But since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling right. Something dark has begun to grow in her mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy's iron gates. And now that Lissa and Rose's sworn enemy, Victor Dashkov, is on trial for his freedom, tensions in the Moroi world are higher than ever.
Lying to Lissa about Dimitri is one thing but suddenly there's way more than friendship at stake. The immortal undead are on the prowl, and they want vengeance for the lives that Rose has stolen. In a heart-stopping battle to rival her worst nightmare, Rose will have to choose between life, love, and the two people who matter most..but will her choice mean that only one can survive?
This book is definitley my favourite in the series along with Last Sacrifice. This series continues to amaze me no matter how many times I read it and I find myself loving the characters and the series even more. I love Richelle Mead's writting style and the way that she has found just the right balance between reality and supernatural in this series. I also love how we get to see more of Christian in this book and we get to see another side of him when he is around Rose. I also liked how we got to see the Royal Court and how we got introduced to Ambrose. I also thought that the plot in this book was really good, how we got to see Rose and all of her other class mates go through their feild experience at school and also how we got to see how Rose and Dimirti's relationship develops even more throughout the book.
Overall I thought this was an amazing edition to what has to be my favourite series
