Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…
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. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and 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

HOLY CRAP!!!! I am in love with this series. I finished this book last night and I am still sitting here going over everything in my head. Rose is Rose , tough, smart and fierce. She and Adrian are together and I was surprised that I liked it.
As sweet and funny as Adrian is, there is no comparison to Dimitri, the Russian god! As I was reading this book it took everything in me not to skip ahead and see what was going to happen.
I love that Dimitri was changed back, of course there are consequences with every action so this should be no different. Lissa is not bonded to him( thank god) but she does feel compelled to help him, He wants nothing to do with Rose, which to be truthful I was not surprised, She of course does not give up, which turns Adrian off. Can we say love Triangle. Adrian does not want to give Rose up. Dimitri tells her he no longer has feelings for her, and you almost believe him. When The Queen is murdered and Rose is suspect number 1, the Guardians come to take her away while she is the middle of a conversation with Dimitri. He cannot stand the idea and pushes her behind him and starts fighting to protect her, and then you know and hope that they will be together.
The book was what it should be, freaking awesome! I have no idea what is going to happen in 6th and last book of this series, but what I do know is that it is going to one outstanding read with a lot of oohs and aahs along the way.
I think it should go on forever, but hey you can’t always get what you want.
