This vampire novel is vey different from the other ones such as twilight. It is a whiff of fresh air because it has new names and types of vampires. I admire Rose's attitude toward life and i can relate alot to her. When her crush toward Dimitri is described i feel almost as if its me crushing on him.I love how Lisa and Rose's friendship overcomes everything.
I liked this book a lot as in like a lot-a lot. I think it was a good book for the people who
like the House Of Night series because it's a little bit similar. But not
similar enough that it's the same events. The beginning had me reading only one to five chapters a
night... But when I really got into it, I couldn't put the book down!
Now I'm waiting until I can go out and buy the second one and the next books!
Rose is a girl who is comitted to protecting her friend from enemies. Rose and her friend get caght and have to go back to school. Rose didnt know that she would be personally trained by a hot teacher though. See what happens...........
I love the suspense and the mystery of who is the bad guy. I dont think the books were bad. Boys wont like it at all. It would be a great movie.
I ordered this book in hopes of finding another vamprie series to enjoy instead of just rereading Twilight over and over again. Man, am I glad I did. This book, and the others in the series are without a doubt the best books I have ever read.
The book starts quickly, with Rose and Lissa being dragged back to St. Vladimir's by the gorgeous Dimitri (my soon to be husband :D) and life at the Academy starts off with a bang. Right at their return their schedules are very busy, and the girls don't get to spend as much time as they would like together.
Lissa is batteling with her Spirit powers (she doesn't know she has them yet) and they begin to cause her depression. Lissa is a cutter, and because Rose is shadow-kissed, she can get into Lissa's mind and always comes to her rescue when she needs it. On top of constantly being worries about her best friend's mental state, Rose is taking two extra training sessions a day from the gorgeous new Guardian, Dimitri.
Right from their first day, Rose feels a connection with Dimitri. Their forbidden romance is extremely addicting, and I kept having to stop myself from skipping over parts just to read about their sessions together. Although Rose doesn't seem to realize it, Dimitri acts just as attracted to Rose but in a secretive and sexy way.
Rose is one of the most powerful and strong willed characters ever written about. She is sexy and flirty, but at the same time she doesn't take crap from anyone, making her the girl that every guy wishes they had and every girl wishes they were. She also goes through struggles that every girl can relate to. She flirts with people, gets caught making out, has a crush on her hot teacher, feels like she has no one to talk to, and is constantly protecting her best friend. Her character is the perfect blend of every element, which made me feel as if I were her.
Toward the end of the book, Lissa and Rose's fears for leaving were proven right, and Lissa is in mortal danger.
This book is absolutely perfect, Mead's writing style couldn't fit the characters more accurately, and I can assure every girl 13+ that they will NOT be able to put this book down until they finish it!
