[Review] - Last Sacrifice
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Vampire Academy
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: December 7, 2010
Summary: 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?
Thoughts: Rose Hathaway's friends break her out of jail. While her friends try to clear her name as Queen Tatiana's killer, Rose along with Dimitri and Sydney are on a mission too. To find the last Dragomir. The one person who could help Lissa secure the throne.
Last Sacrifice is a great ending to this part of the series. I loved it, definitely one of my favorite books in the series. An emotionally driven and epic tale. Fast paced with lots of action. Shocking revelations are revealed and for the most part story lines are concluded. I'm eager to find out what the spin off series will be like. Fans of the series won't be disappointed. If you haven't given Vampire Academy a try I recommend that you do.
Score: 5 Stars
