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.

Now, What I Thought:

So basically this book is about the lamb now chasing the hunter, a.k.a Dimitri chasing Rose. It was well-paced and you couldn't NOT get bored because Mead just hit you with surprise after surprise after surprise. I like that Rose is finally back at St. Vlad's and is finally getting to graduate. Of course that all gets put on hold because Strigoi Dimitri is not giving up so easily. Ever since she failed to kill him, Dimitri has given her no more chances and is now on pursuit to turning Rose into a Strigoi, so they can be together forever. I mean, it's kind of romantic? At least he's still thinking of her, even with his dead dark heart.. Lol. 

Poor Adrian, I guess Rose did give him a shot once and for all, but we all knew who'd she end back up with. Pretty obvious. I did not like how Rose took Adrian for granted, I mean using his credit card in Vegas to then proclaim your love for Dimitri while you're legit dating the guy that's financing your trip... seriously Rose? But Adrian being Adrian, he still loves Rose even though he knows its a lost cause, deep down. He also still helps his cousin Lissa out in finding her powers and mostly, not hurting herself and others with them. 

This novel, thankfully, was definitely better than Blood Promise that's for sure. The book does end in a horrible cliffhanger, AGAIN. Seriously, Mead. Enough with the cliffhangers, our poor hearts can't handle it!!! Especially with the knowledge that the next book will be the last in the series, why!!!
