Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Goodreads Summary:  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?


My Take: What an amazing book to end a series! So much happened in this book and I can't believe Richelle Mead pulled it off!

Last Sacrifice was not just a book ending a series; it was also an amazing book that could stand-alone.

Richelle Mead has already revealed that she will be doing a spin-off series and I could not be more thrilled. So many lives had changed (a lot for the worst) due to this very intense book. A group of new characters were introduced as well. My hopes are that the spin-off will include these people.

I would like to point out that I was completely caught off guard by the person who killed the queen and framed Rose. I didn't figure it out until the last minute.

For those of you who have not read it yet, ENJOY!

Aside from my extreme happiness that Rose and Dimitri are now together, there were so may things that happened in this book that I just LOVED!

I REALLY liked reading about Lissa in her Trials.

I would have to say one of my favorite parts of the book was when Joshua proposes to Rose and Angeline fights her to see if she is worthy of her brother. Then Rose, Sydney and Dimitri are heading of to bed and Rose says, "It's not funny!"

"Your right," agreed Sydney. "It's not funny. It's hilarious."

Here are some quotes for you!


Abe (Rose' father)! "Ah, my daughter," he said. "Eighteen, and already you've been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see." He paused. "I couldn't be prouder."

I have to say I LOVE ABE! He better be nice to Sydney.


"Well, well, well," I said. "If it isn't the people responsible for unleashing Rose Hathaway on the world. You've got a lot to answer for."

"Don't blame us," said my mother. "We didn't blow up half the Court, steal a dozen cars, call out a murderer in the middle of a crowd, or get our teenage friend crowned queen."

"Actually," said Abe, "I did blow up half the Court."
