Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…
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. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows 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 now he is hunting her. And this time he won’t rest until Rose joins him… forever.


My review of book 4 can be found HERE, each past review has a link to the one before it.

WHAT A LINE TO END ON!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! It’s almost like you know it’s past my bed time and you just don’t want me to go. WELL TOUGH! HAHAHA. Ok, so my cold-crazy might still be around but whatever.

So Dimitri is an idiot. But so is Rose. I said “don’t do it Rose.” so many times!! I was sure I was channelling Jack (Dawson. From Titanic, in case you were wondering). His voice came to mind because I’m betting he says that more than once in the film, (but without re-watching I can’t confirm this), the same as Danila Kozlovsky’s comes to mind whenever anything about Rose’s hair being up is mentioned. (He plays Dimitri in the film and at one point, says of her hair “Don’t cut your hair. Wear it up.”)

But anyway. Rose is officially a guardian, YAY! They go off to court for some things, but Lissa and Christian are still on the outs. They were annoying but actually also almost cute too which was weird. Rose was a little selfish, but I can see why and Dimitri – ah Dimitri – your good intentions were selfish and cruel too. Abe clearly stole the show in this one! and there was also a little forshadowing when an old friend stopped by for a chat. Well, two lots of forshadowing now I think about it…Also, Rose visited Rhonda again and I’ve just figured out what the cards mean. Score!

It’s taken me a while to read this – you guessed it – because I knew what was coming because I was an idiot and read spoilers and I wanted to not get there. Only now I’m most of the way there and I really want to find out what happens next. I’m surprised at how much I’m still getting on with these books. This one seemed a little meh, but hey damned spoilers. I think part of it though was that it’s the book before the end, often book 3′s suffer this in trilogies, they’re not the exciting intro or the exciting outro, they’re the plateau in the middle. But despite that, there were also things at work here that surprised me!
That letter though. I mean, I was with Rose about her, but then that letter!…
