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?
The last book of the series left us hanging. Not being able to kill the one she loves, has put Rose, herself, and the people she loves in danger. However, she has to put that aside for something of more importance. Graduation! Yes, they are finally graduating, but that doesnt mean more freedom. This book took me on a trip I will never froget.
Rose and Lissa are maturing from one book to another. They are becoming more mature about the decisions that they choose to make. Well at Lissa is. However, Rose knows of a secret magic that deals with Lissa. Will she tell? Or will she keep the hidden secret hidden a little bit longer.
Grabing me from the very begginning, I never once put this book down. I tell all readers and whoever to read this because you will not be dissappointed. Not once.
I give this book 5 souls!
