It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all... might be seeing ghosts.

As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly threat no one saw coming changes their entire world, Rose must put her own life on the line - and choose between the two people she loves most.

Shadow Kiss
Author: Richelle Mead
Publisher
: Penguin
Release date: November 13, 2008
Copy: Paperback, gifted

L: This is the book that changed all.

At first, I thought this book was mainly a filler, mostly deepening Rose and Dimitris love for each other which is important, I admit. But nothing new to me.

And then BAM! The ending just slammed the cover in your face.

There were four surprises in a row. BAM! You solve a mystery. BAM! Rose and Dimitri couldnt be closer. BAM! Unbelievable sorrow. BAM! The end &

Rating5 out of 5 letter blocks

Sexual content: Not JUST references anymore &
Profanity
: Slight swearing
Violence: Battles with high casualties
Other notables: Smoking

I think I used the word BAM! too much this time.

This book is just heart wrenching and not for the faint of heart. Although its a typical vampire novel, the character of Rose is really great and just makes you want to read more. She is strong and although rebellious and gets herself into some situations with her mouth, she is funny and loveable.  I liked the other characters too, although some of the situations will require you to have kleenex near by, it is definitely worth reading and I'm looking forward to starting the next one in the series.

            I feel that I am compleatly and utterly obsed with thease books!!! I had the 1st one sitting around for a wile and just never got around to reading it but when I did I was utterly captivated I fell into there world and did not want to leave. This extroadanary book keeps you on the edge of your seat and you better hold on because it takes you on an emotional rolercoaster. I Think that either the third or fith book in the scearies is my favorite. Im leaning toards the third but with books like thease its just so hard to decide. I think that this is my favorite becaue It makes you laugh love and cry. It veary easy to ralate to Roses character. And you know that all us girls just what to be her well most of the time. I vote for demitri all the way YEA! : )

Good. Book. Honestly, that's all I can say. This is one of the few Vampire Series that I enjoy. For once, the vampires don't sparkle and although there is romance, it doesn't cause the characters to be stereotypical and unreal. Also, the ending was fantastic although somewhat expected. Rose definitely made choices in this novel and I'm very much looking forward to reading the next one. Enjoy!

I personally think this book is great. I think the author did an amazing job making the climax of the story. How she made demitri turn into a trigoi after rose and he had their perfect night together that will keep people reading for a long time. I love also how she made Lissa's uncle the bad guy and made everything a cliff hanger. Now Rose has to make a decision on if she wants to find demitri and make his wish come true which is to kill him if he every turned or stay at the academy with Lissa and protect her. I Cant wait to see what will happend.

So this book is also a good one but the kind that erks you! i was so excited when they had the practice thing. I was upset tho when she didnt get lissa and got christian...And then she started seening masons ghost and then the teachers came to attack christian and she kept freezing up! UUhhh that bugged me but she didnt tell anyone that she was seeing mason. But little did they know mason was coming to her to tell her that the strigoi were coming. They came and attacked the school and took some people. Rose and a whole bunch of people went to find them and fight to get their people back. And the strigoi got DIMITRI!!! omg it was bad! he didnt come out of the cave! so in the end she started to leave school to keep her promise to kill him if he ever turned! cant wait for the next book! coming this month!!!

Shadow Kiss is the third book in the four-book saga of The Vampire Academy Novels.
 I absolutely loved this series. I was a little hesitant to pick it up, but I'm glad I did.
   Richelle Mead, you can tell, has been writing for awhile. The Characters are strong, and follow you around long after you've read the last page. The story line is very tight, and thrilling.
 
   This is the best Vampire novels I have read yet. (Yes even including Twilight.) Vampire mythology has been written about thousands of times over, but I found this one in particular to be refreshing. Between Moroi, Dhampirs, and Strigoi, this series will grab your attention and won't let you go. I highly recommend it.

Dear Readers,

I was very disappointed with the ending of this book. So dont get to excited towards the end.  I am not really thrilled about the next book but we will see what happens.

I am a fan of love stories and this one was very good.  So good job to the author.
 
              Sincerly,

                     Meg

Out of all the vampire academy books, this was my favorite by far. This book did not only have its mysteries and action, but it also had a strong pull to keep reading. I couldn't stop myself from reading it. Every page was exciting and I can't remember any dull parts in the whole book. This book deserves a 5 star review.
