My Review for 'Last Sacrifice' by Richelle Mead

Book Description from GoodReads:


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 guardians 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 whole life is about saving others, who will save you? 



****

Wow, what a terrific end to an absolutely amazing - and mesmerizing - series! When I first picked up this series I knew absolutely nothing about it, and when I started reading the first book, Vampire Academy, I was freakishly hook. And then having to wait for the next instalments was just pure torture. But now that it is at the end I find myself feeling sad and yet accomplished. Although it is the end of Rose's journey, it's not the end of this series. There is a spin-off series called Bloodlines, which is set in the same world but with different characters featured as the main ones. 

I Finished this book within a day and a half. I just couldn't put it down until I had finished a chapter - and even then I found myself continuously reading three chapters later :S

All in all, I loved this series - the characters, the plot and the setting. I don't know if I will pick up the spin off series any time soon, but I will one day read Bloodlines too.
