Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?

This much awaited final installment in the Vampire Academy series of books does not let you down from start to finish. Rose and Dimitri are on the run, keeping Rose away from Court, while her friends work at proving that she did not kill Queen Tatiana. But as we all know, Rose has a way of letting trouble find her along the way - so she fights Strigoi once more, battles once again with Victor (can she trust him) and gets the last clues which will help prove her innocence, but destroy the heart of one of her closest friends.

Throw in the passion that she sees in Dimitri's face when he looks at her, and meeting up with Adrian in her dreams - she is confused about her feelings. I loved watching the way Rose dealt with it.

This book is brilliant - ties up loose ends, and brings true love together, for a perfect finish to the story.
If you are a Vampire Academy fan - you will love this book - I did.

Rating : 8/10
