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 up to Shadow Kiss this may contain spoilers!!!
When we left Rose in Shadow Kiss her world had been turned upside down. The love of her life had become the definition of evil. Now Rose is in Russia hunting Dimitri down to kill him or to join him? What will see find in Russia? New friends, a new family, home, or death?
This is one of the few young adult vampire series that stands out from the hundreds. The fourth installment Blood Promise is no exception. Richelle Mead has already taken us on a wild ride with Rose in the past four books, it’s about to get even wilder.
I was shocked, shocked! At the direction this book took. Not that it was bad, I loved it but this is definitely not a fluffy YA. Rose goes through some very difficult things and makes some very difficult choices.
I was happy that we still got to see a decent amount of life at the Academy with Lissa and Adrian through the bond. I was a little tiny bit disappointed with the lack of Christian, seeing as he is my favorite guy in the series but hopefully Mead will make up for that in Spirit Bound.
I really do love this series and if you haven’t started it yet, what are you waiting for?! For anyone that is wondering if there is a cliffhanger, it leaves you hanging but nothing like Shadow Kiss did! 4 Stars!
