Book Review: SHADOW KISS

Author: Rachelle Mead
Publication Date: November, 2008
My Rating: 5/5--Incredible! Loved it!
Plot in One Word: Vampires
Good if...you want something dark, dangerous, romantic
It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy and Rose is close to graduation, but since making her first Strigoi kills, things haven't felt quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all ...might be seeing ghosts. Consumed by her forbidden love with her tutor Dimitri and protecting her best friend, the Moroi princess Lissa, Rose is in no state to see the deadly threat that will change her entire world - and make her choose between the two people she loves most.

My Thoughts...
Wow.  Double wow.  These VAMPIRE ACADEMY books just keep getting better and better.  The actions, the romantic tension, the friendship, the mystery--all of it's just doubled since the last book!  Rachelle Mead is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  I can't wait to get my hands on book 4 and I doubt I will ever get tired of reading these novels.  Good thing there are 6 in the series and all of them already published!!  :)

I LOVE this book! I cried so much...it is just fantastic. Not nearly as crazy about book 4 though.

Glad you liked it :)

Isn't it nice when you get into a series late and don't have to wait for the sequels? I've heard so many people gushing about these I'm finally giving them a try. I hope I like them as much as you.
