Rose Hathaway knows it is forbidden to love another guardian. Her best friend, Lissa-the last Dragomir princess-must always come first. Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov, some rules are meant to be broken... But since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling right. Something dark has begun to grow in her mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy's iron gates. And now that Lissa and Rose's sworn enemy, Victor Dashkov, is on trial for his freedom, tensions in the Moroi world are higher than ever. Lying to Lissa about Dimitri is one thing but suddenly there's way more than friendship at stake. The immortal undead are on the prowl, and they want vengeance for the lives that Rose has stolen. In a heart-stopping battle to rival her worst nightmare, Rose will have to choose between life, love, and the two people who matter most..but will her choice mean that only one can survive?My Thoughts
Shadow Kiss, the third addition to the Vampire Academy series, is as fiery and better as the last book. Full of light and brimming with power, this book will leave you breathless. And, as you can see I loved this book! Really epic stuff!
I love Rose and her kick ass character. I'll say she's one of the reasons why I love this series so much! Like always, she encounters many more challenges. With not being able to be the guardian she wants to be, a ruthless court trial, seeing things that no one would believe and facing the Strigoi once again... Shadow Kiss cannot possibly get more exhilarating.
Well, it can if we consider Dimitri. Can things get more hotter? I really love all the Rose and Dimitri scenes. They're perfect for one and other but as always something has to come in its way.
The ending is simply breathtaking and very much astonishing. Mead leaves us with an enormous cliffhanger making it even more anticipating yet pretty much fascinating. I can't begin to explain how awesome this series is. I am loving it even more as I read on the books. Get this series and expect to be blown away.
