Plot, characterization, style, pacing and romance. All of these receive a marked improvement. The VA world becomes more real, relatable and defined.

The relationship become more involved, less childish and the main character, Rose, receives a healthy dose of adulthood. I am coming to really enjoy these books. I wouldn't have continued past the first one without the encouragem So far, Shadow Kiss is my favorite book in the series.

I wouldn't have continued past the first one without the encouragement of Tatiana and her niggling carrot-on-a-stick comment about Adrian. I still feel that I would choose the Fever Series any day over these. But I can't say that they aren't appealing to me. Off to read Blood Promises to see if I can discover for once and all, what all the fuss is about. View all 38 comments. May 20, Emily May rated it it was amazing Shelves: There's no denying it, I loved this third book in the series probably best of all and I finished it with all kinds of feelings and thoughts running through my head.

The ending leaves the reader on such a cliffhanger and the fact that I am constantly being warned against reading book 4 just makes it all the worse. I want to know what happens Can that possibly be it? There's too much I must find out for me to give up on this series just yet. Forgetting about the next book for a second, Shadow Kiss just ticked all the right boxes for me.

I really like the mix of vampire politics amidst the love and heartbreak. Even though vampire issues might not exactly be relevant in our society, you can understand a lot of what lies behind it.

For example, Rose has been brought up her entire life believing that Moroi "come first" and should always be protected, even to the point of laying her life down for them. Dhampirs, like Rose, are little other than instruments to ensure the safety of Moroi royalty. But this book starts to question why Dhampirs should sacrifice their lives and choices in order to serve a race that largely finds them expendable. And then, even within the Moroi ranks, there is a great deal of inequality with regards to which Moroi receive protection.

There's a political statement going on here somewhere under the surface and I like it. I just wanted to mention this now in my fear that this will be my final overly positive review in the Vampire Academy series. I hope not, but taking Rose away from the setting I've come to love My negative mind is already seeing the numerous things that could make Blood Promise a chore to read. View all 14 comments. This book! It's soooo damned good.

I love this series, I can't put it down It just gets better and better with every book. I cried! I mean I really freaking cried, like a baby. This crushed my poor little heart: I guess I'll start at the beginning.

Rose is still facing the aftermath of the Strigoi attack that happened in Spokane.

Shadow Kissed

The aftermath that left her friend Mason dead! She has so much grief and is blaming herself for what happened to him. It's all just sooo sad. Eddie Castile, Masons best friend is also having a hard time with Masons death. Eddie hates how he really doesn't remember anything of that time because of the euphoria he got when the Strigoi drank from him. Rose see Mason and hes a ghost!

A very sad looking ghost and he looks almost translucent. Rose thinks shes imaging it. She must be right? Mason is here trying to warn Rose that dangers are coming.

The Queen Tatiana Ivashkov is a complete bitch and has this idea in her head that Lissa is going to end up with her nephew Adrian. Adrian and Lissa are working on magic together. Adrian has a thing for Rose.

Christian think Adrian has a thing for Lissa. Christian is very jealous of Adrian. You have the Dhampir field experience going on. Witch is really exciting.

Moroi's are getting beat up and there is a secret club forming called Mana. Rose is trying to get to the bottom of it. Lissa gets tortured by the Mana club. It's part of the initiation. Lissa was tricked into going there. Lissa totally loses it in a very dark and scary way. Rose takes the darkness away from Lissa. And because of it, Rose goes bat shit crazy! There's a lot of ass kicking, yelling and threats.

Dimitri has to drag Rose away. He takes her to the cabin where Tasha was staying. People are taken. Rose asks ghost Mason if hes knows where they are he does. The Guardians formulate a plan to save them. But there are just so many Strigoi Are you fucking kidding me? Rip my heart out why don't you!!! My heart still hurts: No it was shattered right along with Roses. And to think they finally figured out a way to be together too!

Then when its all said and done Rose leave to go kill Dimitri View all 7 comments. I can't believe it. I'm crying right now: I wasn't expecting that. Oh, this book was amazing and I loved it, but the ending broke my heart.

View 1 comment. Sep 03, Courtney rated it really liked it Recommends it for: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Dimitri a Strigoi? I hate it. It's kind of a Buffy and Angel situation. Rose now has to kill her true love. I knew that Dimitri was either going to be killed or turned.

Once things started working out with him and Rose and all that, I knew something was going to happen. It sucks though.

Maybe in the next book Lissa will be able to track Rose down and some how heal Dimitri with her magic. I don't know if it is possible, but I hate Dimitri being evil. It will be interesting to see what he does wit Dimitri a Strigoi? It will be interesting to see what he does with all of his inside information-going from one of the top Guardians to the enemy.

He could cause a lot of harm and problems for the others. I really liked Christian in this book and am interested to see how things develop for his character. I also really started to like Adrian. I want Rose and Dimitri to be together, but since that's no longer possible, I don't thing I would mind if Rose gets together with Adrian in the future. We'll see what happens. View all 29 comments.

View all 4 comments. I am so upset right now after reading that ending! I seriously have tears in my eyes. I have to collect my thoughts before I write a full review. So that 30 minutes did about nothing to help me get over that ending. I was basically depressed and now desperate to read the next one. This book has to be my favorite book ever. There subplots and subplots. The whole Strigoi problems, relationships, mystery ghosts, and again relationships there were no pauses and that was very good.

I have declared that he is my book boyfriend. He was so serious and focused on his job but you couldn't help but see his true feelings for Rose and that is what made him so much better. Rose Hathway. She is the best female protagonist. Even though she was questioning whether she was crazy or not, she was so strong and was willing and did put so many others before her.

The minor characters were pretty cool.

I did like Adrian, despite his bad drinking and smoking habits, and I hope that we are able to hear more of him in the rest of the series. I am also glad about Eddie and how he changed over time even though it was a little sad.

Speaking of sadness, this book had so many sad parts, especially nearing the end. There was death and don't get me started to who turned Strigoi. Rose has to figure out a way to get him changed back! There was a slight cliff hanger at the end but I still liked it. On a parting note, this gif pretty much sums up how I saw Rose at the end of the book: Only if Teresa Palmer had dark hair, tanner skin, and Rose had some fire powers that Christian had.

Dec 24, Nick marked it as dnf. It's so cheesy and I never liked the main character and I don't feel like reading about vampires anymore.

Rose is finally becoming more mature,the whole story was really interesting and captivating,there are a lot of serious issues and topics included in this book and the characters are finally starting to feel If that makes any sense.

That ending was so intense-I would have never ever thought that a Vampire Academy novel was going to make me cry but it really happened.

I don't think that the rest of the series can take this book off the throne when i I feel like it doesn't get better than this. I don't think that the rest of the series can take this book off the throne when it comes to making you feel all the feels. Also,this monologue is probably the best thing Rose has ever said: Mar 04, Rachel E. Carter rated it liked it Shelves: There is nothing I love more than a lovers-turned-enemies storyline While being haunted by Mason, she is also facing field experience where the Dhampir novices guard Moroi for 6 weeks while they are tested throughout the time while creaming over Dimitri honestly, what did you expect?

I also liked how in this book, we delved more into the Spirit element and the shadow-kissed bond- its dark side-effects of mental instability was definitely very interesting to read about as it explained why Rose was able to see ghosts which causes complications and her dark attitude throughout the books.

I thought it definitely made the story move forward and I thought that it could be used for a lot of potential in the future books, looking in foresight.

I was wrong about this too, hindsight changes everything, people. I also love how in this book, there was a multiple storyline going on and each character had their own arc: Now on to the characters: I couldn't handle her angst in this book because it was getting ridiculous! I specifically remember in Vampire Academy, that Rose criticized two guardians that ran off together yet in Shadow Kiss, she constantly complains about how bad her life is, how she can never live her own life and how Lissa is to blame for the situation she is in.

Tasha Ozera and hot chocolate. What the fuck? Yet people still call her a good heroine? Silly me. Dimitri is hot. That excuses him from everything! Anyway moving on to much brighter things in the book: He genuinely seems to care for Rose and although he is of Royal blood- he treats her as an equal.

His lines made me have a good laugh and the chemistry between him and Rose has the power to become something amazing and I think that their romance would beat Rose and Dimitri by a fucking mile. So to all you reviewers who are thinking I am a bitter Rose and Adrian fan, I'm not, because Rose and Dimitri deserve each other for being the two dumbest shitheads I have ever read about since Edward and Bella. I loved Lissa and Christian; they seem to be the only couple I care about at this stage because a.

I also rate Richelle Mead even though I have problems with her primary romances in her books for killing off Dimitri and making him into a Strigoi, I was cheering personally, but I loved how intense it was because usually most YA authors would never do that to their love interests, especially to the principal one. I admire her for going there and building momentum in this series because it made the ending a whole lot more powerful.

The rest of the characters I liked. Eddie is one of those characters that I just love because he is always there for Rose, Mia has developed a lot and I like that, and I also liked Tatiana because she seemed to ooze power and control and made the plot a lot more interesting.

Overall, aside certain things, I really liked this book, the writing has improved and she certainly stepped up in her game which is why this book stands out for me amongst other YA novels. I realized that I wasn't able to make a review of this book. I'm sorry: I loved this sequel because everything that happened here was remarkable. I saw the strength of character Rose was able to develop. I also loved the romance between her and Dimitri.

The whole book was also filled with adrenaline-pulling action scenes which were a lot better than the first two books. The great aspect of this book was the clim I realized that I wasn't able to make a review of this book. The great aspect of this book was the climax which was super awesome. I did not expect that something like that will happen! Richelle Mead took a great risk in pursuing that plot twist but hey, she was able to pull it off! I also loved the development of some supporting characters here, including Adrian, Christian, and Lissa.

Not to mention Eddie! As a whole, this book is kick-ass! I loved everything in it! View all 16 comments. Apr 09, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: I didn't really enjoy the first two books of the Vampire Academy Series but I adored this one!

Rose is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite female characters. She is strong, smart and not taken lightly. Lissa- I'm not really a huge fan of Lissa. I mean I like her don't get me wrong but I just feel like she could be more. Dimitri- There's nothing more to be said. This is very true. There was no time to dwell on that fact though, no time to wish that I had told her goodbye or 'I love you' or even wish that I had given her one last kiss.

My next assailant was on me an instant later. He hit me hard on the left side, and I knew that speed was going to be my best chance. With no idea how long I'd be fighting, and how many I'd be fighting, I needed to take down each person as quickly as possible.

I could already see another Strigoi coming as my stake drove into his chest. She was a bit quicker, but she had been human in another life and I had almost two feet of height on her so that extra arm reach came in handy.

The silence that followed was nerve wracking, only lasting a second or two before I started shouting, hitting the nearby trees, and doing anything and everything to create noise.

I wanted to draw as much attention towards me as possible. The more Strigoi that came my way, the less that would follow Rose. She should be there by now. She made it. I know she did. My thoughts were my only desperate comfort right now. She had to have made it. I came across few more attackers as I slowly made my way back towards campus, torn between following in Rose's footsteps to help her if I came across her, and taking another path all together so I could keep diverting Strigoi from the Academy as long as possible.

In the end, I trusted Rose's capabilities and went with the later, but by the time I made the clearing, I realized it didn't matter at all. The Academy was under full attack. We were prepared for this though. After the attacks on the Badica and Drozdov households, the school guardians began to look into the possibility of a sudden assault on the Academy with multiple aggressors and created a full lockdown procedure.

Slowly for the past several months, we had been running drills for a large scale attack. We had never done a test run full scale with all the guardians, and never while all the students were present, but we had been running them in small groups. I was part of group D, which was in charge of securing the staff housing for Moroi teachers and administrators. Some guardians were in place protecting Moroi upper class students, others were at the novices' dorms, and everyone was doing their part to get others to safety while trying to stay alive themselves.

Unfortunately, not all were succeeding. I could already see some recognizable faces staring up at me from the ground with dead eyes, but I couldn't stop.

They were gone, and I had a job to do. Not following orders, diverting from the plan, that's the easiest way to get yourself killed. That doesn't mean you couldn't do absolutely everything right and still die, but when there was a plan, holding to it was not only was it your best chance, but was also the best chance for others as well.

That meant following protocol I made it to my post after nearly everyone else, finding almost everyone else was already in place. They weren't waiting for me, not able to count on whether or not I was still alive. Guardians were in position and defending the lower floors while sequestering the teachers and other staff to the upper floors.

As long as we could keep them from overtaking the first floor, the Moroi would be safe. It was the same idea in the Moroi and novices' dorms. We even had safe rooms in the academic buildings just in case we weren't able to get everyone to the dorms in time. Not all guardians were limited to the buildings though.

Many were on the grounds, ideally keeping the Strigoi from ever getting to the buildings in the first place. In this building, it was working perfectly, without a single issue. In fact, I could feel the tension from other men and women beside me, that itch to get out and help with the battle, building. It fed my own nerves, especially as we listened to the sounds of fighting outside and the updates over the radio.

While any update set us on edge, this one in particular couldn't be ignored. This one required further action. With the staff housing relatively quiet and it took barely a moment to agree to send part of our group to assist. I left with half our team, racing the short distance between the two complexes, and only stopping to take out a couple of Strigoi who tried to attack us on our way.

The breach had made the second level of the dorms, and while some of our team helped secure the first level of the Moroi dorms, I went with the other group to the second level to hopefully keep the Strigoi from making it any further.

Thankfully, we were in the one building that had a whole extra team that we hadn't planned on when we had been running all our practice runs: nearly graduated novices. Sure, they had been only armed with practice stakes initially, but it seemed that they had somehow found silver stakes by the time I had arrived.

Whether they had been given extras by other guardians, or had picked them up off of fallen guardians a seemingly uncaring but prudent necessity at this moment they were now defending the third floor from above while we secured it from below. The additional forces were exactly what we needed to defeat the larger group that had tried to overtake the building. Not all of the Strigoi were killed though.

Vladimir's Academy, after running away one year previously. Upon their return, Guardian Dimitri Belikov, who was the leader of the team of guardians sent to retrieve the two, is assigned to be Lissa's guardian and offers to mentor Rose in her guardian training.

He believes Rose can be an excellent guardian to Lissa due to the presence of a rare one-sided psychic bond to Lissa, which allows her to know the latter's thoughts, emotions, and whereabouts. Rose agrees, knowing this is the only way she will be allowed to remain, and on graduation, be Lissa's guardian. It is revealed that Lissa has a miraculous ability to heal others but when she becomes depressed she engages in self-mutilation.

Lissa becomes friends with an outcast Moroi classmate, Christian Ozera which Rose immediately dislikes, stating that he is a bad-influence, partly because his parents voluntarily became Strigoi. They are tormented frequently by a non-royal Mia and her gang, because of her grudge against Lissa's brother for using her.

Rose reaches through her bond while confined to her room to find that Lissa is being kidnapped. She sneaks out of her room to tell Dimitri that Lissa has been kidnapped, but they are distracted by a lust charm planted by Victor Dashkov, close uncle-figure of Lissa and father of Natalie Dashkov, Lissa and Rose's friend.

After Dimitri disposes of the charm, Rose directs a convoy to the kidnapper's hideout, with Christian stowing away during the ride. The school guardians are able to rescue Lissa from the man she has called "Uncle" all her life, Victor, and she heals Christian when he is fatally injured during the struggle.

Lissa accepts him as her boyfriend after that. Dimitri reveals that he has feelings for Rose but cannot have a relationship with her because of their age difference, because he is her mentor and also because he worries that if he lets himself love her, he wouldn't throw himself in front of the princess, as his duty is, but he would be inclined to protect her.

This may lead to danger to their assigned Moroi.

A Vampire Academy Novel

Once they arrive at the home of the Moroi family- Conta- he protects, they discover a bloody massacre of the entire family and their guardians, including Arthur. To keep the students at St.

Vladimir's Academy safe, a ski trip to a lodge owned by a wealthy Moroi family is required right after Christmas. During her stay at the lodge, Rose meets a royal Moroi named Adrian Ivashkov, who flirts with her every time he sees her. During Adrian's pool party, Mason, his friend Eddie, and Mia begin voicing their opinions about hunting Strigoi.

After a heated argument with Dimitri, Rose tells Mason confidential information about the possible whereabouts of the Strigoi's hideouts. Using Rose's information, Mia, Mason, and Eddie sneak out of the ski lodge and travel to Spokane, Washington, to hunt down the Strigoi themselves. Rose discovers their plan, and she and Christian follow to stop them.

When they find the group, they are ambushed by Strigoi, who hold them captive for days. Rose eventually comes up with a plan to escape, and they all manage to get out of the house into the protection of the light, except Rose. Mason returns and attempts to help Rose, but the Strigoi snap his neck, killing him instantly.

Rose defeats the Strigoi- with a blunt sword, in a rage over his death. Once back at St. Vladimir's, Rose receives two molnija marks for her Strigoi kills. Dimitri also tells her that his heart is with Rose and will never leave her. Shadow Kiss begins with Rose preparing for the Qualifying Exam with the rest of the novices. Rose is assigned to Christian to her dismay. Christian is approached by Jesse Zeklos to join a secret "club" he and Ralf have started, though Christian turns them down.

Rose goes to meet with Queen Tatiana. She insists that Rose call off her "engagement" to Adrian. Tatiana then reveals that she has been planning a marriage between Adrian and Lissa. Lissa is led into the woods and attacked by Jesse and the other magic users.Clearly, Lola is not the one to blame here.

Completely out of curiosity. This is making Rose act crazy, angry and at times totally out of control and dangerous. View all 15 comments.
