Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead Book Review

"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?"
-Last Sacrifice

Hey, y'all. I've decided to review the highly anticipated finale to the international bestselling series Vampire Academy: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead, a fiesty red head with an amazing knack for writing and leaving her fans begging for more. If I had to rate Last Sacrifice based on one to five stars, the novel earned a shining TEN! The moment I bought Last Sacrifice, I sat down and read it cover to cover in one sitting. Last Sacrifice tied up loose ends forgotten in Spirit Bound, the fifth novel in the series prior to Last Sacrifice, the sixth and final novel. Richelle definately wrote the way she felt was best in Last Sacrifice, twisting and turning through the numerous plot conflicts like a slithering snake, or, in this case...zmey (wink, wink Vampire Academy fans.) Mead wrote an epic romance without making it a romance. Mead wrote about a forbidden romance conquered against all odds, ignoring a complete cliche. You must read Last Sacrifice if you want an amazing book to tide you over until your next run to Barnes & Noble or the closest book store near you.

My next review will be...LINGER, by Maggie Steifvater.


P.S. Merry Late Christas--I am VERY thankful for all that I have and am blessed to have such a warm, caring family. Happy New Year, folks. :)
