Why I Started This Book:

When I first saw the cover for Bloodlines and started to read the summary, and discover it was a spin-off I went in search for the original series on Goodreads. In my contry there’s a lot of talking about Richelle Mead books, so decided to give it a shot and was very impressed.


Is Rose’s fate to kill the person she loves most? It’s springtime at St. Vladimir’s Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason’s death, Rose hasn’t been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can’t concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret …. She’s in love with Dimitri. And this time, it’s way more than a crush. Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever…


My Thoughts:

Is the third book in Vampire Academy series. I loved the action scenes, romantic ones but the end keep me hanging for the next one.
We discover on this book that Rose/Lisa bond is not a easy thing on them. Rose start having problems with humor, not that she had a great one from the beginning.
Rose start to keep secrets from Lisa and this part I didn’t like, but understad why she does it(she has a fierce protection for her friend). She has battles of her on, by seeying dead people and felling when strigoi are near by. Deal with the lost off a friend is difficult, but seeying him, makes it harder.
I still think Lisa is imature, and the end of this book shows exactually what I think, she doesn’t know Rose’s relationship with Dimitri, especially because she only cares about herself. Lisa’s attitude shows that she is selfish and out of control with her emotions. Christian is still with her, and helps a lot Lisa.
Rose and Christian fight in the big battle that happens on the school, making their friendship a bit better.
Dimitri shows more fellings towards Rose, making it difficult to live without each other.

You Might Enjoy This Book If:

Favorite Quotes:

“You will lose what you value most, so treasure it while you can.”   

“What’s up?” I asked.
You tell me,” he (Christian) said. “You were the one about ready to start making out with Adrian.”
It was an experiment,” I said. “It was part of my therapy.”
What the hell kind of therapy are you in?”    

“He stepped back and threw his arms out.
“I’m always crazy around you Rose. Here, I’m going to write an impromptu poem for you.”
He tipped his head back and shouted to the sky:
“Rose is in red
But never in blue
Sharp as a thron
Fights like one too.”
