Spirit Bound just blew me away. Mead sure does know how to keep a reader on the edge of their seat. I got an idea of what I thought might happen, but before I fully finished processing my thought, something else had already happened. The plot kept me guessing until everything was literally spelled out for me. I love books where I can’t figure anything out. Makes everything more exciting.
All the characters were well-developed. There is no other way to describe Rose Hathaway except that she’s one kick-ass heroine. She’s got a strong voice, loyal to those she cares for, but best of all she makes mistakes other teens can relate to and sympathize with. I just love Adrian. He’s as cocky as ever, but we also get to experience his sweet side. Go Team Adrian!!
This series has everything a paranormal reader would want…action, surprises around every corner, magic, and romance. This is one series that should not be missed! Even if you aren’t a big paranormal fan, I guarantee you will still enjoy it....more

Mead had done it once again. Blood Promise was an addicting read as we follow Rose on her journey to fulfill the promise she and Dimitri made to each other. Throughout her journey, Rose discovers things she never would have dreamed of, and of course, finding herself in some interesting situations.
Blood Promise is much different from the first three installments. There's still plenty of action and twists that will leave you mind-boggled but we get to see each character develop into something more. My favorite character is Adrian (which I'm totally rooting for!) and I was so excited we got to see more of him in this installment. Also, this is the first book that doesn't take place at that Academy, which I loved.
Mead has caught me off guard...like always, especially with the ending. I have no idea what is going to happen next for Rose and I can't wait to find out!...more

I don't know exactly what to say, without giving away any spoilers. WOW! is basically what comes to mind. I think this is the best book in the series, so far. (they get better with each additional book, it seems) There is so much more going on: drama, suspense, action, and surprises. I love reading it because well, it was amazing. Great writing, a gripping plot, and fantastic characters. But then again I'm not sure what think about the ending. I was SO not expecting that (if you have already read it then you know what I mean) Overall, it was incredible. And now I can not wait until the next book, Blood Promise, comes out so I can find out what happens next. ...more

One thing is for sure, Richelle Mead knows how to keep her reader's eyes glued to the pages, I know mine were. I was so entralled with the story and the characters that I didn't even notice how fast the pages with thinning. The plot is well-developed and written, with some very unexpected twists thrown in. I fully enjoyed every inch of this book and I can't wait to start reading the next book in the Vampire Academy series, Shadow Kiss....more

I am so glad I did because I was hooked from the first page. There was so much excitement going on that I had a VERY hard time putting it down. The main plot and characters were well drawn out. And it contained the perfect amount of suspense and action and even romance. Overall, a great read!
If you haven't already read it, I definitely recommend it. ...more

Michelle Zink’s writing style was brilliant. Everything flowed so smoothly, grabbing my attention from the very first page (literally!) and not letting go. It seemed there was always some sort of surprise, whether big or small, waiting around every corner. I love books like this because it keeps me on the edge of my seat. Also, I must say that being set in the 1800’s did the book wonders – made it more dark and eerie feeling.
I found the character’s personalities to be quite believable. My favorite character is Lia. She is such a strong and determined person. Throughout the book, she had problems thrown at her from left and right, but she didn’t give up. I think that’s what I loved most about her. Now, Alice, on the other hand, I still don’t know what to think about her. She seemed so cold and very secretive. You just didn’t know what she was going to do next. But then there were times where I could catch glimpses of the young, carefree Alice. I can’t wait to see how all the characters continue to grow.
Michelle Zink has written such a captivating and amazing debut novel. I for one, can’t wait until the next installment because I need more!! Prophecy of the Sisters is a fantastic start to what I think will be an exciting trilogy.
If you haven’t already read this then you need to do so! You won’t be disappointed....more
