I loved this book because it involves love, vampires, and Dhampirs. Dhampirs are half human and half vampire. Somebody is trying to get to Lizza. ManyI loved this book because it involves love, vampires, and Dhampirs. Dhampirs are half human and half vampire. Somebody is trying to get to Lizza. Many plots go on the story.

I liked this book too of the series. Things really start to get going rocky between her and Dmitri, but they manage to patch it up. I feel sorry for RI liked this book too of the series. Things really start to get going rocky between her and Dmitri, but they manage to patch it up. I feel sorry for Rose, because what she goes through with Dmitri. Both of them try dating someone else, but it doesn't stick for either one. A tragedy that Rose was involved changed their path forever. Without Mason running off to kill Strigoi Rose and Dmitri would not have what they had for the future books. This was the most important scene of the book, because it changes everything between Rose, Dmitri, and Lissa.
The attacks the Strigoi do only make it more interesting. It adds more plot the story, and gives the story a purpose. The book has everything Twilight doesn't have. Twilight is I love you, you love me. Bella and Edward don't really struggle not being with each other. Neither one deal with their problems in a good way. Rose and Dmitri struggle. They are equal and have to fight. Edward from Twilight is always protecting Bella. I'd rather our daughters to be more like Rose than Bella. Bella always have to depend on someone, when Rose does not. Rose is independent and shows she can take care of herself and others when the need arises....more
This book really speeds up the series. I'm a fan all the way. Again Rose and Dmitri struggles. Rose protects Lissa to the best of her ability. Rose haThis book really speeds up the series. I'm a fan all the way. Again Rose and Dmitri struggles. Rose protects Lissa to the best of her ability. Rose has to do her tests. Rose has to follow the Moroi she is assigned to protect for several weeks. Some Moroi think that when she didn't protect Christian from Stan that she was denying having to protect him, when that really isn't the case. I feel sorry for her be accused of something like that. The guardians at the school accuse her of being selfish and backstabbing when she really saw Mason's ghost and could not respond.
Rose really makes it hard on Dmitri. Dmitri doesn't find out what it really going on until guardians know too, when she gets back to academy from going to see Victor in court. It is very suspenseful. I would have done the same as Rose. I would not want anybody thinking I am crazy. Dmitri is with Rose when she really struggles. Rose becomes trusted by the guardians when the Strigoi attack the school. Rose was perfectly ready for it, and defended her family with great care. She did best that anyone did with Christian's help....more
