Spirit Bound starts back at the Academy, it's finally graduation time and Rose has only one more challenge in front of her: The Trials. A final exam planned by guardians to test their ability to protect Moroi "in the real world". But what worries Rose the most is the after-graduation. She always thought it rimed with freedom but reality hit her in the face. She will spend her life protecting Moroi and her own desires won't matter anymore. There's not only the weight of responsibilities though, she knows Dimitri is out there, lurking in shadows, waiting for an opportunity to kill her.
In this installment, Rose is more determined than ever and will use extremely illegal ways to reach her objectives. Desperation to save Dimitri, while she still can, drives her actions and consequences won't be light. She is not risking only her future and her life but also the ones of people she loves.
When we love a book, we all say "I couldn't put it down", well in this case, I loved the book so much I HAD to put it down and take deep breaths because it was just too much. Love, Passion, Treason, Fear, Sadness, Grief, all these emotions laid on paper in a so intense way it almost became unbearable. At times I couldn't believe my own eyes, events happening in that book triggered reactions in me that are beyond words!Read more ›
So basically - my advice to you is that you buy the last two books together. So that you don't feel the anger that I felt in having to wait for it from the library.
That being said! I obviously loved it. There's just something about these books. It was really good. I dig Rose and Lissa's friendship and how much they mean to each other. They would literally do anything for each other. Even be annoying and get in each other's business. As to the other matter - with Dimitri - don't want to spoiler it.... so I'll just say wow.
The story moved fast, as is the usual for these books. I couldn't put it down - until the cliff hanger and I wanted to chuck it across the room. Haha. Seriously though, I do adore these books and I can hardly wait until I'm off the wait list at the library.
Richelle Mead, despite my anger, you nailed another one.

Again, Rose has to make difficult choices, and puts herself in mortal danger to help those she loves. This time, Rose and Lissa have graduated from St. Valdimir's and are at the royal court. Adrian plays a pretty big role as he is now dating Rose.
I still love how strong and independent Rose is, how she is smart and tough and able to take care of herself, though sometimes she still needs help from her friends and has a certain amount of teenage moodiness. I also like how Lissa is becoming more independent too, and more considerate of how things are affecting Rose. Then there is Adrian. I like Adrian, how genuine and caring he really is, but how no one looks to him to save the day.
Like the other books in this series, it is full of action, suspense and twists. I absolutely loved the twist at the end and can hardly wait to read the next (and I believe) last in this series.
If they're ever going to save Dimitri, it's going to be now. After some research and with a plan in mind, they travel to Alaska - home to Victor Dashkov. He alone has the information Rose needs to find and save Dimitri. Unfortunately, he's under strict lock and key.
Once they break him out and uncover the truth, it's only a matter of time before Dimitri tracks down Rose. While she's determined to save him, he's determined to kill her so they can be forever joined. When they finally do meet, who will win the battle of wills and emotions?
I loved this book, as I have the previous books in the VAMPIRE ACADEMY series. They're filled with raw emotion: love, betrayal, disbelief, misunderstanding, jealousy, and horror. The fast-paced action plus the intensity of emotions makes this addition to the series a very quick read.
While the final book in the series, LAST SACRIFICE, will be published in December 2010, a spin-off series is thankfully in the works.
