Book: Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5)
Author: Richelle Mead
**SPOILER ALERT—DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT READ FIRST 5 BOOKS IN VAMPIRE ACADEMY SERIES**
Salvation has its price.My Review:
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.
I know…I know…everyone is out reading book number 6 (the final book) right now--I guess I am about half a year behind the rest of the world, apparently. Although I just got around to reading it, the fifth installment to the Vampire Academy Series was beyond amazing & I LOVED every minute of it! It has been probably about a year since I read the 4th book, Blood Promise, so I was really nervous getting into this one, thinking I might have forgotten everything or that maybe I might not like it how I remembered I did, etc.—but boy was I dead wrong! This book took off right where the previous one left off and I got sucked in immediately. It was wonderful beyond words—I almost cannot believe how much I adore this series. I am not lying when I say this book had me flipping out a few times (in a good way) and filling me with shock plenty of times along the ride.
The romance, the anticipation, the girl-power/butt kicking—everything in this book shows why this series is so great. I am dying to get my hands on the final novel in this series, Last Sacrifice, to see what happens, but am trying to put it off because I DON’T want it to end. I am just praying that I steer clear away from spoilers (like I did with this book for so long) until I can get my hands on a copy of it. Overall, this book did not disappoint, will satisfy, and keep you wanting more!
Last Sacrifice, the 6th and final installment in the Vampire Academy Series is out now, and I have heard some great reviews so far. Like I said, can’t wait to get my hands on it!
