How far will Rose go to keep her promise?

The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri.

He’d rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?


My Review YYYY


Blood Promise picks up a few weeks after we last saw Rose Hathaway leaving St. Vladamir's Academy on her mission, a promise to the man she loves. With a heavy heart Rose travels to Russia in hopes of finding Dimitri and It isn't long before she is followed by Sydney, a member of a old sect that works along side with the Moroi.
They join forces and travel to Dimitri's hometown of Omsk. Along the way a new ability of Rose's shadow kissed nature comes to light, but this is something that Rose does not dwell on because she is so overwhelmed with memories of Dimitri that constantly assault her. And it only intensifies as she meets Dimitri's family, but she has little time to enjoy their presence because there is someone that wants her out of Siberia and quickly. A deal is made and soon Rose is on the move again with some new companions hell bent on killing strigoi.
Although Rose's story takes place in Siberia we are never far from St. Vladimir's due to Rose's bond with Lissa whom she visits on occasion. Not to forget that Adrian still continues to visit Rose in her dreams and she is ever mindful to not reveal her whereabouts and keep him on his toes. I enjoy these moments and find it pure genius that we can keep in touch with these other characters not in the immediate vicinity.
These visits offer Rose a bit of a distraction from the task at hand for soon she is faced with the unimaginable. The moment that she has dreaded is upon her and her actions can become her undoing. Can she kill the man she loves or will she decide on the unthinkable? Words from a madman give Rose weary hope, but she knows what she has to do. Will she be able to manage this impossible task before time runs out....
Richelle Mead has penned a gripping story full of suspense, romance and unexpected twists and turns that leave you breathless up until the very last word. You will not be disappointed with this book that is purely Dimitri and Rose's story. I just can't stop thinking about because I am sucker for love. I have to read it again.
STAY TUNED THIS MONTH FOR A VAMPIRE ACADEMY CONTEST FEATURING A SIGNED SET OF THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY SERIES :) AND AN INTERVIEW WITH RICHELLE MEAD LATER THIS MONTH.
