After losing good friends to a Strigori attack (renegade vamps in the Vamp Academy world) just weeks earlier, Guardian and Strigori Slayer-in-training, Rose Hathaway, starts seeing the ghost of one of the victims. It doesn't help that she sees him when she's in the midst of her field training possibly ruining the destiny she's trained for all her life. Compound that with the debilitating dark emotions overwhelming her at the most random of times, she's almost certain she's losing it.

But things come crashing together when the Strigori make their way onto the Academy Quad in a deadly attack that will force her to make a choice between her purpose and best friend and the man she's come to love above all others. Will the tie between herself and Lissa, the Moroi Vampire she's known all her life and swore to protect, survive when the tie becomes a danger to not only Rose but Dimitri as well?

In this the third installment of Mead's Vamp Academy series, Rose discovers that she desires something more than the life she's always wanted- that being Dimitri the Guardian she shouldn't love but does with all her heart and soul. The connection between she and Lissa becomes darker as she discovers what it truly means to be a shadow-kissed Guardian to her best friend and it's that revelation that makes this book hard to put down.

The best Vamp Academy book thus far, I'm looking forward to where Mead takes us in the next installment!
