Salvation has its price.

The words stunned Adrian for a moment, but he kept going. "You're lying. What you're describing is impossible. There's no way to save a Strigoi. When they're gone, they're gone. They're dead. Undead. Forever."

Robert's next words weren't directed at Adrian. They were spoken to me. "That which is dead doesn't always stay dead...."

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 Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. 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.

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price?


Awww , Dimitri you are breaking my heart..again. Your love letters leave a lot to be desired.

Rose has her final trial before she becomes a full fledged dhampir guardian.

Adrian is just a fabulous character that my heart goes out to. A Royal Moroi whose addictive nature includes Rose. Richelle, I need an Adrian fairy tale.

They are now all off to the Royal Courts as St. Vladimir’s Academy has now ended for them.

There is love, lust, bravery is tested, defiance, a covert operation, deadly accusation, pain, heartache and loyalty is tested.

Dimitri is just the most awesome written male character in this series. The emotions the reader feels in each book.......

Eddie has proven to be the most stand up friend a girl can have when she needs to do everything illegal under the sun. Dive in head first , ask questions later. I would love an Eddie spinoff he is just gorgeous.

Richelle sure likes to take us on adventures , in ‘Spirit Bound ‘, we are off to Alaska, Sin City and back to the Royal Courts.

Rose will stop at absolutely nothing, to help those she loves, but what sort of mess is she leaving in her wake. Will all the deaths come back to haunt her for trying to save the one guy she can’t live without? Will it be worth fighting her own kind?

Rose kicks ass like her life depends on it...well errr.............

Fave Quotes :

He put his face right up to mine, so close that our foreheads touched. “Roza....” he murmured. His breath was warm and sweet against my skin. It seemed like it should have smelled like death or decay, but it didn’t . “Why? Why did you have to be so difficult? We could have spent eternity together.....”

“You’re beautiful in battle,” said Dimitri. His cold voice carried to me clearly, even above the roar of combat. “ Like an avenging angel come to deliver the justice of heaven.”

My heart twisted with both sorrow and jealousy --- and a bit of anger too. I was the one he should have looked at that way. How dare he?

You think me going to Siberia was crazy? Believe me, you haven’t even come close to seeing crazy. You know me. You know what I’m capable of. And I broke my own records this time...”

“ I’ve given up on you, “ he said back, voice also soft. “ Love fades. Mine has.”

“Rose , I have all sorts of reasons to want you. I haven’t been able to stay away from you since I saw you at the ski lodge.”

“You forget: I have an addictive personality. I’m addicted to you. Somehow I think you could do all sorts of bad things to me , and I’d still come back to you. “

‘What are you, Rose Hathaway? Are you real? You’re a dream within a dream. I’m afraid touching you will make me wake up. You’ll disappear.”

“Careful little dhampir. I went longer than I should have. You could probably grow wings and fly off right now.”



  1. Great review! I love this series. I am also excited for the spin off.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  2. I love this series and can't wait for Bloodlines to come out. Great review!

  3. I'm a major Team Adrian fan too!! :)

  4. Hi everyone,

    Midnight Bloom, I think Adrian needs a spin off, his character is quite addictive to read. He's spontaneous and I feel he has a story and I want a fairy tale for him.

    A Canadian Girl, I am sooo looking forward to Bloodlines. I wonder if Jill will be older from the start or it continues relatively close in time?

    Hi Nic,

    I feel a bit kinda lost without anotherVamp Academy as I read them all in a week, like I need another book/fix, so I'm glad it's not long until Bloodlines:D
