Rose Hathaway's life will never be the same.

The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?

Now, with everything at stake—and worlds away from St. Vladimir's and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend—can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?


When I read this book for the first time I was really excited to read it because "Shadow Kiss" ended on such a cliff hanger, and this book definitley did not dissapoint.

First off the plot. I thought that the plot was amazing I thought that the story line was great and even though it was a littleow to start off with when it got to about half way through the book really started to pick up and then I couldn't put it down! The plot in the second half of the book is so fast paced and suspenseful that I found myself staying up really late telling myself that I would only read one more chapter but then reading about another five. The plot is seriously amazing and the ending... wow is all I can say.

Next the characters. We are introduced to a lot of new characters in this book and I think that that did add to the story. We get to meet Dimitri's family which I thought was great because we got to learn a bit more about him and what he was like when he was younger. We also get introduced to Abe, to be honest I found his character to be kind of annouying and pushy, but he was nessasary for the story. Then we are introduced to Avery, who I really really did not like but again she was nessasary to the story. Last but definitley not least we got to knoe Sydney the alchemist, at the start of the book I found myself really not likeing her but then I found that her character grew on me throughout the book.

Overall I thought that this book was a really good edition to the Vampire Academy series and carries on seemlessly from Shadow Kiss and really does show how great of an author Richelle Mead is.
