: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead :

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever

RICHELLE!!!!!!!! You can't leave me hanging like that!!!
I read the last page ... and looked for another secret page hiding somewhere ... omg, what a way to end the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book ... seeing the cat and mouse game between Rose and Dimitri, and watching Lissa blossom with her spirit magic with the help of Adrian. Seeing Lissa and Christian's relationship come to a point of make or break was hard - they really let so much nonsensical stuff get in the way. Finally, to see that Lissa came to the realisation of just what her friendship with Rose really meant to her, and what she was prepared to do to help her with Dimitri was inspiring ... if only real life friendships could be that committed.

And Dimitri ... what changes he's been through in the last 2 books ... deep down, I know what he is saying about his feelings for Rose, and how guilty he feels for the things he has done, but also could tell that something would happen to prove that he still loved her as much as ever.

I felt this book had a bit of everything - friendship, loss, awakening, love, action, trials from every angle ... the only thing I am wondering is what the heck happened to Victor? I am tipping that he makes a return in LAST SACRIFICE ... seems like forever till that comes out.

RATING - 8/10
