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 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 is actually the book that made me lose interest, though I’m stuff if I truly know why? This one is the set up for the rest of the series. It’s the one that’s sad, and happy and everything that’s horrible good in a series like these.
The loss, the love, the fight, the need.
But I just couldn’t care past this point. I’m not sure if it was for the fact that I had to wait so long, but I have the next one, so in some way, that’s not true.
I do know that, if this series is something that you are interested in, that you are liking from, than you will enjoy this one as much as the rest. Mead is brilliant with the same person series. I just grew to old to deal with a girl like her.
This one also goes much more into her powers and connection, it’s a lot more about information and understanding. And like I said, the set up.
