They come first.
My vision was growing dimmer, the blackness and ghosts closing in. I swore it was like I could hear Robert whispering in my ear: The world of the dead won’t give you up a second time. Just before the light completely vanished, I saw Dimitri’s face join Lissa’s. I wanted to smile. I decided then that if the two people I loved most were safe, I could leave this world.
The dead could finally have me.
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 guardians 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 whole life is about saving others, who will save you?
Join Rose, Dimitri, Adrian, and Lissa in Last Sacrifice, the epic, unforgettable finale to Richelle Mead’s international #1 bestsellingVampire Academy series.
Holy shit! I was so nervous for this one. Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead was the book I preordered, let sit on my shelf, longed to read but never did. I love this series so much, and I just didn’t want to see it end. I should have long ago learned to have faith in Richelle Mead, because Last Sacrifice is the best book in the series and the perfect ending to Rose’s story. It was wonderful, enchanting, and just perfect.
I love Rose as a character – she is just such a kick butt hero. She is so snarky and always is up to something. Sydney has a large role in this book as well and she is just a marvelously written character as well. She is so funny and I love seeing the bond of friendship between her and Rose bud and bloom in Last Sacrifice.
Non stop action! That is what Last Sacrifice was. There was so much going on. It was an intense ride and I loved it. Rose, Dimitri, and Sydney have to work together to unravel several mysteries. I also loved the exploration between Dimitri and Rose. There are so many untold emotions between them and they really explore their relationship in this one.
Last Sacrifice was just perfect. Perfect in every way. I loved seeing how Richelle Mead would wrap up the story. It was a complete page turner that I couldn’t put down. I was completely entranced. Now I can’t wait to see what is next for Sydney in Bloodlines and share her story.
