Summary : The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?
My Opinion : This book is clearly going in my Top 10. It was awesome and great! I loved how I felt like I was the character, Rose Hathaway, and that was so incredible. I could feel her pain for the loss of her Dimitri and her adrenaline.
Characters : My favorite character would be Dimitri Belikov. He was sweet and caring at times, then scary at others.
Then, it would be badass Rose Hathaway. I loved her a lot. She was a badass but could care for people. She loved Dimitri deeply.
Viktoria Belikov was nice and I loved what she brought in the story.
Abe was quite nice and funny. But I haven't got anything else to say except that I was't surprised that he was Rose's father.
Vasilia (Lissa) Dragomir was, like always, charming and nice. I liked her a lot.
The other characters were all okay except for Yeva. I don't know why but I didn't like her.
