After 2 years of freedom, Rose & Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, a school for vampire royalty and there guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger....and the Strigoi are always close by.
Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, and confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let there guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever...
So, the beginning of this book was just a tad slow. Now, i say JUST A TAD. about 20 some pages worth of information. WHICH, I must say I am grateful for. Because it helps you understand the people in the book. Who they are; What they do; Why they are that way! Which is something that is great! This books gives you all that. The writing is great. Easy to read. Although I am sitting around trying to figure out how to Pronounce Moroi, and Strigoi.. etc, Other then that.. LOL, I loved this book. IT had it action, it's love.
Rose is a kick ass best friend. WHO doesn't want that? The bond that she has with Lissa is so wonderful. The loyalty that she has for her, and the drive she has in protecting her. And never wanting her to feel pain, or discomfort.
NOW, i don't know about you. But i wanted to slap miss MIA allot... ALLOT. she's just one of those annoying girls you had to listen to in High school. UGH.
Now, on Rose & Dimitri, AWWWW, Man, i hope that they end up getting together. When i picture him when I'm reading it's this hot hot hot man with his dark hair and taught body, ha ha! And at the end it started to get steamy a bit. I don't think that you could have ripped the book out of my had at the moment! I was glued!
All in all, this book was good. Good way to start a series. It can only get better from here! I LOVED IT!!!
