DIMITRI’S HEART HAS GONE DARK
Now Rose must journey to the ends of the earth to find–and kill–her one true love…
Or has the time come to join him?
BOUND BY LOVE, BUT SWORN TO KILL…
The rest of the world had considered Dimitri dead. And to a certain extent, he was. But I hadn’t been able to forget a conversation he and I had once had. We’d both agreed that we’d rather be dead—truly dead—than walk the world as Strigoi. It was time to honor our words.
Guardian 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?
***If you haven’t read the first Vampire Academy books, this review could be sort of spoilerish****
Seriously, my first words upon finishing Blood Promise were O.M.G. Richelle Mead doesn’t let readers down with this next installment of the series! She hooks you in, and doesn’t let you eat, sleep, whatever until the book is done – it’s that addicting!
Once you got into it, there was no putting it down. The suspense, the story, and action just kept you reading. The need to know what’s happening to Dimitri, will Rose carry out her plans is so overwhelming. Blood Promise definately plays with your emotions throughout the entire book.
In Blood Promise you see everyone favorite characters continue to grow as the series progresses. I was happy Richelle Mead found a way to include all the characters, even while Rose is off in Russia. The new characters you meet, like Abe and Sydney, are characters I hope to see in future books!
I now need Spirit Bound NOW! The wait until May is going to be agonizingly long!
