((Okay…ONE MORE BOOK REVIEW, and then I’m done. I swear. I’m done for a while…I swear))
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
HOLY SHIT THIS BOOK THO. I HONESTLY MISSED THIS SERIES SO BAD. From the beginning to end, this have been an amazing book. Some parts of it made me gag, made me wanna throw the book to the wall-it was wonderful and I loved it.
So this book started with the graduation test of Rose, which she graduated with flying colors. Then came the breakout with Victor Dashkov, Lissa’s uncle, along with Eddie, so they can find Victor’s brother so they can find out a way to save Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Dimitri, from being a Strigoi. So they go to Vegas and, along with Adrian, meets up with Robert and Robert told them how to bring someone back from being a Strigoi: charm a stake with spirit, and stake them in the heart. And the part Rose don’t like was that only a Spirit user had to do it. Which means Lissa had to do it.
And of course, Rose said hell no-she won’t even let Lissa near a Strigoi. But sadly that didn’t happen when they came back to Court. Eddie and Rose had do to some work for the guardians while Lissa and Christian went to Lehigh University, where surprise, surprise, Dimitri showed up and kidnapped them, his army of Strigoi killing the group of guardians and Patricia Voda. Since both Rose and Lissa are shadow-kissed and have the bond, Rose saw everything and she went with the rest of the guardian team to save them.
Then something amazing happened during the rescue: Lissa, using her charmed stake, shoving it awkwardly in Dimitri’s heart (thanks to Christian’s fire), and…Dimitri was back as a Dhampir. Everything should be great, right?
Dimitri went with the guardians, and only requested Lissa to see him. Sure Rose was mad, but she agreed, seeing him through the bond. It hurted her so bad to see him that way, and honestly…it made me mad. Dimitri didn’t want to see her-okay. But there’s Adrian who loves her and would do ANYTHING for her.
BUT NO, she kept ignoring him until they spent the night together….and on that same night, the Queen Tatiana was killed…with Rose’s sliver stake.
BUT Rose didn’t do it.
She went to court and was presented with the evidence, and everyone believed the evidence and she was put in jail.
This book was amazing and I really need to read the last book so I can wish my favorite characters goodbye.
