I liked this book, it took me a bit of time to get into to it, but once i started I couldn't stop. I was confused at first by her being able to just leave her body and these flash backs of the past and future to come. The cliff ending sucks cause I really want to know who Madoc is now and what will happen with this three way bond. Thumbs up to the sexy scenes full of raw lust and passion - Beautiful writing.

Years ago she saw these horrible green eyes that have haunted her to this day. Now 8 years later she's making a new start at greenbrier university, where she pledges as a gamma eta phi sister. Only one problem, the sorority is full of secrets, secrets to do with what she saw that night and the house president Malory isnt what she seems and has a whole other idea for Eve.
I got as far as 45% but even this far into the book I was confused and bored outta my mind. Definitely not the book for me. There wasn't any flow and there's was just too much going in to understand and follow. Therefore I mark this book as unfinished. (less)

But this has to be one of the best endings ever! I'm also a sucker for those fairy tale endings never the less we finally get what we all wanted to see . . . Rose and Dimitri back together this time for good. I truly have become addicted to this series and I'm sad to say goodbye to all the characters. Lots of twists and adventure on this one with unpredictable scenarios. I just never knew what was going to happen when I turned the page. I can't wait for the spin off. Overall Rose has to be my all time fav character not only was she tough, never a damsel in distress, smart, witty and just straight up a bad ass!
Some of my fav lines from the book:
"Huh," Adrian said, letting himself in, "So that's how you're going to fix the family problem. Little Dragomirs. Good idea."
Dimitri "It's you. You're beautiful. So beautiful, it hurts me."
"His fingers never ceased to amaze me. They could break a man's neck, bandage a would and slide sensually across bare skin."
Sonya tells Rose "I see that synchronicity in auras. I can see the love too. And I see all of that in his aura and in yours."
Dimitri tells Rose at the end of the book "We waste our lives with guilt nand self-loathing. When you looked at me there at the end . . . I saw it. You did love me."
The soul that complemented mine. My match. My equal.(less)

In a short recap Rose finally has become a guardian, she break into a high security prison in Alaska, breaks out Victor Daskov, helps bring Dimitri back from a strigoi and has been imprisoned and framed for killing Queen Tatiana. All of this in one book, boy is that ever a lot of drama for one women.
It all starts from the last book where Rose heard it is possible to change a strigoi back. In order to learn how to do this she has to break out the only person who can give them information on this Victor Daskov. With Lissa and Eddie at her side they break Victor out of jail and head to Vegas to learn more from his half brother. From him they learn a stake has to be charmed with spirit and the strigoi has to be staked by the spirit user. Lissa's practise and training eventually prevails in staking Dimitri bring him back to his former self.
With Dimitri back all Rose wants is to see him and relive the love they once shared but he can't look at her and wants nothing to do with her. He's forever indebt to Lissa for saving him and guilty for what he did as a strigoi especially so to Rose. He goes as far as telling her "Love fades, I dont love you anymore." Though he's eyes betray he's true feelings.
During this time a ruling has occured that allows the guardian age to be lowered to 16 which to Rose's outrage she confronts the Queen infront of the court and is eventually dragged out saying "i wont let you get away with this" and other Rose like things
the next day Rose has been charged and framed for killing the Queen. Someone has framed her buy using her stake and her past actions against her. Now Rose has one last mission, with a note from the dead Queen she can bring Lissa to her rightful place in the court and among the Moroi royalty.

My pet peeve is when I've started a series and have to wait for the book by then I would have either moved on or forgot what happened in the last 2 books. Sigh In book two the 2 main events are Rose has competition over Dimitri's attention and affection and the possibility of him leaving to protect another moroi. We finally meet Rose's mom and there is a rogue band of strigoi (immortal dead vampires with insane strength) that are killing off royal families one by one the help of humans. We get to see Rose's first killing of strigoi, we see the lost of her friend Mason and a new character is brought in named Adrian ( who is royal and is a spirit user like Lissa)
I really liked this one because we see rose's battle between herself and she learns more about being a guardian and her mother. This one is very emotional and I got caught up in the intense situations. Overall I gave this a 5 and I can't wait to read the next book. (less)
