After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere.
She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.
But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price?
Fall in love with Rose and Dimitri all over again in Spirit Bound, the eagerly awaited fifth novel in Richelle Mead's enthralling Vampire Academy series
Summary taken from Goodreads.
Richelle Mead has left me speechless once again. I have no idea where to begin.
Well I guess I'll start with my growing love for Adrian. He just keeps getting better and better. I was glad that Rose kept her promise and started a relationship with him. He is great to her and cares about her so much.
But.... they just felt wrong! Simply put, he's not Dimitri. Rose and Dimitri are meant to be. They fought so hard for their relationship and they deserve to be together.
I'm really afraid to say anything else. If I do, I'll probably end up spoiling the book. I need to find someone else who's read it to discuss to with me!
I will say this. Mead keeps the laughs, tears, action, and mayhem coming in this one. And the ending! What a (excuse my language) fucking twist! I just stared at the book for so long, completely unable to form a coherent thought. Another wonderful book from Mead!
I don't have any idea how I'm going to stick with my Rewards Challenge and not go buy Last Sacrifice. Like right now. Please lend me all the willpower you can spare to stop me from buying until I read three more of my own books!
