Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

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 guardian 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 life is about saving others, who will save you?

This is one of those series that sucks you in. Personally I became almost obsessed with the characters, I cried when they cried, I laughed when they laughed, it was almost unhealthy.

This book. The final book. Wow. It definitely did not disappoint me. Rose, oh Rose shes just so AWESOME! No one can kick butt like that girl, and her love for her friends, well it makes her even more awesome.

I'm so glad that the book ended the way it did, it was perfect. Having such a great ending made the blow of the series ending a little lighter (although I have heard some rumors about a spin off series?). I did see one of the twists coming, but the rest of them I definitely didn't.

I don't want to say anything else about this novel because I don't want to ruin it. All I have to say is just read it!  Even if you think your sick of vampire books, your not! I promise it wont disappoint!

  1. I've so got to get around to reading this. I loved the other ones and I have it sitting on my shelf, just have to get around to it. It sounds fantastic.

  2. It was so amazing, Richelle Mead did the series justice with the way it ended, I can't wait to read the spin off!
