YA paranormal Romance

From Goodreads:

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?

Opinion:

I’m trying my best to write this without spoilers, but be warned deciphering may be easy.

I freaking love the last book in this series, but there were some issues. The first issue is info dumps. Places were instead of working it into the story Rose just simply states that it has happened before. I expect more out of the writing of this great author. This is a small issue that doesn’t really take away from the overall book.

The journey to the end was hilarious, intense, and emotional. The characters were easy to fall in love with, so readers, at least this reader, was emotionally engaged.

I love the hillbillies!!!

I was content with the way the book ended, especially for Rose’s love life. I wanted to see more after this though. Such as the hunting trip and a trip to his parents.

Lissa is where she should be as long as she stays modest. I wouldn’t like for her to actually permit her fears to come true in regard to Christian. She’s changed a lot since the beginning, but I simply don’t trust a character that can so easily allow someone else to control them. Even if that is for protection sake.

I know Bloodlines will follow Sydney, but a better wrapping up of that storyline would have been appreciated. Btw, I think Sydney is a better friend than Lissa ever will be.

I hope in this new series we at least see Rose, although I don’t doubt we shall.

If you haven’t read this series, seriously go get it now. Also, I can’t wait to start in on Sydney’s story.

Rating: 4.5/5
