Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…
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. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and 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.
Vampire Academy fans will be tossed and turned on the emotional ride called Spirit Bound. Richelle Mead takes you across every emotion on the board with this fascinating continuation of Rose’s story. This is a page turner, and I have trouble finding words to simply describe it. Spirit Bound may possibly have won the title of favorite in the series yet.
Readers see their favorite characters back again in Spirit Bound while also meeting a number of new characters. I continue to be impressed with Mead’s well-written characters. I love every single one of them. Rose continues to be one of my favorite heroins ever. She’s smart and strong-willed, yet has a girly side to her and will kick your ass without a second thought.
The plot will keep you guessing. You form an opinion of what you think might happen, but by the time you’re actually thinking about it, something else has already happened. Spirit Bound is action packed! I loved every moment of it.
Spirit Bound was simply stellar, there’s no other way to put it. The pages were filled with an enchanting story, and ending that will make readers long for book 6. Parts of Spirit Bound had me wanting to cry, other parts I was gasping, and others I could barely contain my happiness. Mead draws readers in with page 1 and doesn’t let go until the end.
