Unfortunately, ...more Rose Hathaway knows it is forbidden to love another guardian. Her best friend, Lissa-the last Dragomir princess-must always come first. Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov, some rules are meant to be broken...
But since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling right. Something dark has begun to grow in her mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy's iron gates. And now that Lissa and Rose's sworn enemy, Victor Dashkov, is on trial for his freedom, tensions in the Moroi world are higher than ever.
Lying to Lissa about Dimitri is one thing but suddenly there's way more than friendship at stake. The immortal undead are on the prowl, and they want vengeance for the lives that Rose has stolen. In a heart-stopping battle to rival her worst nightmare, Rose will have to choose between life, love, and the two people who matter most..but will her choice mean that only one can survive?

Recently I had been in a bleak situation where I wasn't sure what to read next. Not that I don't have a huge TBR pile. It was more along the lines of wanting a particular genre and not having anything available on my TBR to fit the description... well, anything I really wanted to read that is. So, one of my friends on GR recommended I try Vampire Academy. I can say I had seen this series some time ago and wasn't intrigued, but the library had them all so I thought I would give them a chance. Might I say, WOW!! I mean, I would give the whole series 4 stars and say that I was beyond pleasantly surprised. Rose was one of the best female characters I've read in a long time and Dimitri.... lets just say, I wouldn't mind making out with that Russian. A 24 year old piece of YUMMY!
My Favorite Song for This Week Is:
Misery by Maroon 5
So I've always had an affection for all things Maroon 5. Their lead singer, Adam Levine, is quite delicious. And I don't know what it is about this music video, but man is he SUPER sexy!
