Rose Hathaway's life will never be the same.
The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?
Now, with everything at stake—and worlds away from St. Vladimir's and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend—can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?
Rose left the academy and is now on a crazy mission. She’s stalking to streets and clubs of Russia trying to find a trail that would lead her to the love of her life – Dimitri. Along the way she’ll befriend with some very special characters and find a lot more then she was looking for.
She will find Dimitri thought, and things surely don’t turn out the way she planed.
On the other side of the world, Lissa and Adrian a grieving “the loss” of their friend Rose and it’s not bright and shiny at the academy. They meet with some new friends but something seems really off, and they can’t quite put their fingers on it.
Will Rose kill Dimitri? Will Dimitri awaken her? Will Rose come back to her friend Lissa? You’ll need to read to find out =)
I was really feeling depressed reading the book, Rose was so drained of her fire and natural fierceness, she was drowning in grief and it was hard to bare.
Dimitri, oh fine Dimitri! He totally ripped my heart apart. He was so sweet, caring, knight-like and loving. All the magic is gone from him in Blood Promise and geez it hurts!
Lissa is becoming crazy and reckless, is spirit getting the best of her?
The end though, well I should say the last 200ish pages, WOW I was having a hard time sit still because I was so overwhelmed. I was feeling breathless by all the action going on.
And the very end.. oh.. my.. god.. Richelle managed to stun me. I mean really!
Richelle is good, oh so good! Why May 2010 is so far away? I want Spirit Bound now please!
Romeo and Juliet story’s is out-shined by Rose and Dimitri’s tragic love story. Hands down!
