My vision was growing dimmer, the blackness and ghosts closing in. I swore it was like I could hear Robert whispering in my ear: The world of the dead won't give you up a second time. Just before the light completely vanished, I saw Dimitri's face join Lissa's. I wanted to smile. I decided th

Complete and Edited Book Review....down there somewhere
***Thoughts before Reading***
(Just scroll down little dhampir^^)

Okay the last book of the series...

Wondering what "Last Sacrifice" means???

My speculations on who kills the Queen, I think it's probably Victor Dashkov since he is free now or maybe one of the royals I bet it's Adrian's father.

I'm Team Adrian, but if it's going to be like Twilight, then Rose and Dimitri would be together at the end, I'd just hope something happens like Dimitri

I should preface my review by stating that I only read this book because I was given a copy by a very good friend of mine. I read it because I wanted to know how it all ended and to be done with the series. I had no good expectations of this book because I was less than impressed with Blood Promises and despised Spirit Bound. People in love with this series should stop reading about now.

Because, to be honest, reading this book was like reading an alcoholic unicorn chucking-up rainbows while smal

“What?" I asked uneasily. "Why are you looking at me like that?"
He shook his head, the smile rueful now. "Because sometimes, a person can get so caught up in the details that they miss the whole. It's not just the dress or the hair. It's YOU. You're beautiful. So beautiful, it hurts me.”

"His warmth was all around me, as was his love, and again, I felt that completeness. I had that missing piece of my world back. The soul that complemented mine. My match. My equal. "

This was incredible!!

Oh, Lord. There is really no reason for anyone to read the following review. It's not a review at all really, but rather brain vomit, because I so so need to purge myself of this book. And I shall do so with spoilers, cursing, and RANDOMLY CAPITALIZED SENTENCES. So there ya go. Don't say I didn't warn ya.

I have never been in love with Vampire Academy. No book in the series has ever warranted more than four stars on my part, and I haven't bought any of them, either forcing my brother to buy it ("

Last Sacrifice in a nutshell? Bullshit topped with every STD imaginable. Last Sacrifice should die a painful, painful death for:-

Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
I don't know what happened between the first time I read this book and this time but the first time I rated it 5 stars and now I can't get over the fact that Rose played Adrian and acted like a immature selfish girl. It really bugged me this time that one minute she would go on about loving Adrian and the next she would be like Dimitri is the love of my life. One minute she was kissing Adrian and the next she was having sex with Dimitri. It pissed me off. The plot was good but the Adrian, Dimitr ...more

Well, that was such a pretty incredible conclusion of the Vampire Academy series!

I waited for months before I read Last Sacrifice because I grew really fond of this series since I started it and I hate the separation anxiety I always get whenever I read a final book of a series that I love. THIS IS WHAT I AM SAYING. I hate this feeling. This bittersweet feeling because it's finally OVER. No more Rose, Dimitri, and Adrian moments. No more snarky and entertaining narration from the world's most ba

Actual Rating: 4.5 - rounded up for overall enjoyment level.

Well, my emotions are all over the place and I don't think I'll ever be able to write a coherent review for this book because this series man. Don't knock it till you try it and I was one of those naysayers in the beginning that looked at the title and thought "lolnope" and then the movie looked interesting so I tried the first book out. I really lovelove Rose as a main character. Some people find her annoying, I get that, but her voice

I was hoping I'd feel relief after finishing this series, but honestly I wish I just hadn't finished the series. Book 3 was my favorite and it was just a meh series from there on out. The main reason I dislike this series is because I think Rose is SOOOO annoying and immature. Thinking that maybe she would develop throughout the series, I kept giving her second chances, but she's just as childish and impulsive in book 6 as she was in book 1. This book's plot was kinda boring and I found it predi ...more

What a journey this series takes you on. No matter how many time I read these books it will always be one of my top 5 favorite series EVER! I love everything about it, everything! Rose is a kick-ass heroine beginning to end. I may not always agree with everything she does but I never once disliked her and that is rare for me to say. I'm gonna keep the review short and sweet. Read the series. If your sane, you will not be disappointed lol.

Ok - Finished the book it was nice read for the series end but it was too much of a perfect ending. Don't get me wrong I am happy for Rose and Dimitri but did they have to remain guardians. I wanted them to choose themselves over duty and go start their life fighting injustice on their on term. The ending was too perfect not saying someone should have died but not every story has to have a perfect ending. If Lissa was not crowned queen or Rose and Dimiti leaving court that would have been fine. ...more
I'm psychic. Yes ladies and gents, you heard me right. It's true. I predicted everything. I quote myself; "I think that (view spoiler) killed the queen. She's just a little too suspect... Plus, she hit on Dimitri, which made me hate her. NO ONE BUT ME (and, ok, maybe Rose too) CAN HIT ON DIMITRI!".

This was indeed the perfect ending to a perfect series. It was brutally real and totally heartbreaking in places, but it was never predictable. I loved every minute of it, and it

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
actual rating: 2.85/5 stars

4th series finished so far this year, am I killing this reading challenge or what? ;)

So, this is the final instalment in the Vampire Academy series, and I was a bit disappointed,
I think I kind of fell out of love with this series after or maybe even during book four. Maybe this is because I'd read soooo many books in between reading books three and four, that my tastes grew and my criticisms became tougher, in a way.

However, I absolutely

What to say about Last Sacrifice?

Well, I have to say that I think everything that happened in this book was bittersweet yet inevitable. This book opened up more possibilities than any other book in the Vampire Academy series thus far had -- and, though this book brought an end to Rose's first-account tale, the story is far, far from over. As a fan, I really can't wait to see where the characters will go from here, how they will grow, what struggles they will have in the uncertain future. Unlike

Όταν έρχεται το τέλος της αγαπημένης σου σειράς μπορεί να νιώσεις ταυτόχρονα λύτρωση, επειδή όλα λύθηκαν, αλλά και λύπη, επειδή όλα τελείωσαν. Τα βάσανα της Ρόουζ τέλειωσαν. Και τώρα πώς θα αντέξω να διαβάσω άλλο βιβλίο στο οποίο δεν θα πρωταγωνιστεί η Ρόουζ;



Γι' αυτό και το τέλος ήταν γλυκόπικρο για μένα, αφενός επειδή οι περιπέτειες τελείωσαν και αφετέρου για λόγους που ευθύνεται η αγαπημένη Ρόουζ. (view spoiler)

People who have read this series PLEASE DON'T ABANDON ME WITH MY FEELINGS come talk to me.

I'm sobbing here, I actually thought there was something wrong with me because I've been feeling like I couldn't truly connect to characters in YA anymore, especially their romance. But this series just showed me that the problem is not me, it's the lack of development and depth in so many other books out there. God, I hope I'm not ruined for other YA.

VA is for sure my favorite series after only Harry Potte

Spoiler free review... proceed with ease...

Well my fictional journey with Rose Hathaway has concluded, and I have to say that I feel sort of sad, yet definitely resolved. Yup, that’s the word I’m looking for…resolved. In this series, Rose journeyed, struggled, fought and ultimately decided, and that’s that. I couldn’t have asked for anything more in a final installment for one of my favorite series.

Αν και βιαζόμουν να ολοκληρώσω τη σειρά τώρα μετανιώνω για την ανυπομονησία μου…Αγάπησα τόσο τους χαρακτήρες και τον κόσμο που έπλασε η Richelle Mead. Θα μπορούσα να ξεκινήσω το Bloodlines αλλά δεν θα είναι η ίδια αίσθηση, δεν θα ενεδρεύω στο μυαλό της Ρόουζ.
Θα ήθελα να το βαθμολογήσω με πέντε αστέρια αλλά κατεμέ αξίζει τέσσερα. Perquè? Perquè κάποια κεφάλαια ήταν ψιλοαδιάφορα (δεν με ικανοποίησε διόλου η εξήγηση της δολοφονίας), δεν περιείχε τα τρελά plot twist του τρίτου ή τέταρτου βιβλίου και

I will start with my usual and often spotting of unusual things on front covers of books. Here on the cover of Last Sacrifice we have whom I am assuming is Rose Hathaway. Well my dear - YOU NEED TO PLUCK YOUR EYE BROWS. Sorry, Im a stickler for hairy eyebrows.

Today instead of a review, I will give somewhat of a speech. Some dedications if you will.

I have waited what seemed like an eternity to read Last Sacrifice. I cant believe its now over *
