Review by Autum
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?
In book 5 of the Vampire Academy Book (Spirit Bound) we learned that Rose Hathaway is incarcerated indefinitely for the murder of the Moroi Queen Tatiana. Through a series of events Rose is sprung for her prison by her family and friends and is thrust of the run with her former lover and former Strigoi and newly renewed Dhampir, Dimitri Belikov, while still with her boyfirend Adrian Ivoshkov visiting her in dreams . In this book Tatiana has left Rose with a final task in note. She must find the object of the note. Meanwhile a new queen must be elected and Lissa Dragomir is running to her dismay. In this final installment the characters come together for a final adventure.
This book moves very quickly and doesn’t leave you lacking. The electricity between Dimitri and Rose is undeniable and almost leaves one frustrated. We (the readers) know they are in love, but they can’t seem to get it. In this installment we see the decision Rose makes between Adrian and Dimitri. It may leave some feeling the need for another book.
In this book Lissa really shows how strong of a woman she is. She is far from the spoiled reliant royal Moroi she was in previous books. We find out if she has what it takes to be a leader, and true queen. We also see how every character we know and love come together to leave us with the best book in the series.
