Summary: Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you

Rating: 5 stars



I can remember the first time I picked up Vampire Academy and thought it’s be just another vampire series. I soon found out how wrong I was and got sucked into Rose’s world. I was hooked and never looked back. And now, having just read the last book in the series, I’m so sad to see it over, though this could not have been a greater ending to a wonderful series.

Rose and the crew are back. With Rose having been jailed to allegedly murdering the queen, beginning quickly takes off with a crafty escape plan by her friends. Now, Rose and Dimitri take off to a safe place to stay hidden until Lissa & Co. come find the real murder. Though, who has known Rose to be one to sit back and let others do the dirty work?

I don’t think I could have loved this book any more. There was actions (as always), romance (hell yes there was), and a mystery that had to trusting no one. While Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney searched for Lissa’s lost half-sibling, we are trying to put the clues together as to who really murdered the queen. In the end I was put into shock more the a number of times and mead did a wonderful job at cluing in while not giving away.

The only thing that made me upset about the book was with Adrian. I won’t say too much, but I’ll say that I love him and I hope his heart can heal.

Overall, I honestly wish there was more to come in the series, it was the epitome of epicness. I enjoyed the wild, emotional roller coaster that I shared with Rose. It will stay with me forever.

I've always thought this was just another vampire series too... but with all the buzz about this book I think maybe I should pick up the first one! Thanks for the great review. :)
