Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

Goodreads Summary: Salvation has its price.
The words stunned Adrian for a moment, but he kept going. "You're lying. What you're describing is impossible. There's no way to save a Strigoi. When they're gone, they're gone. They're dead. Undead. Forever."

Robert's next words weren't directed at Adrian. They were spoken to me. "That which is dead doesn't always stay dead...."

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 Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. 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 she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price?

Fall in love with Rose and Dimitri all over again in Spirit Bound, the eagerly awaited fifth novel in Richelle Mead's enthralling Vampire Academy series.


My Take: Wow! What can I say? This book is a reminder that Vampire Academy is truly one of my favorite series. I am not going to write a discript review or I would end up giving up spoilers.

There is a major cliffhanger in the end, but it is something that I had prepared myself for being it is the 2nd to last of the series. The emotions that I got from this book are fear, frustration, sorrow, happiness and anger. The majority of this books sucks but that is what makes it so good! It is truly driving me insane knowing that I will have to wait until December for Last Sacrifice.

I have no idea how she is going to wrap everything up in one book.

I would definitely give the full series 5 stars.

I ♥ Dimitri - ALWAYS
I ♥ Adrian - TOO!

My happily ever after would have to be Rose with Dimitri BUT I cannot see anyone with Adrian accept Rose. Can she have them BOTH?!?!
