Now Rose must journey to the ends of the earth to find--and kill--her one true love...

Or has the time come to join him?


The rest of the world had considered Dimitri dead. And to a certain extent, he was. But I hadn't been able to forget a conversation he and I had once had. We'd both agreed that we'd rather be dead—truly dead—than walk the world as Strigoi. It was time to honor our words.

Review: Major spoiler alert! Don't read if u haven't read the book yet!

The review is pretty much topic based rather than the writing etc., so it might not be for everyone to read..

This sequel wouldn't give me any rest. The most part I was looking forward to was Dimitri's behavior, I didn't quite know what to expect from him being Strigoi (I never questioned the fact he might not have turned into one). And of course his and Rose' reunion. The first part of the book was kinda slow (and I understand Rose' jorney had to be told) so thats basically why I would give 4 stars for this book instead of 5. In this first half I just missed all charcters I fell in love with even though Rose kept kinda connecting to Adrian and Lissa. Though I have to say it was funny to read all the russian traditions and stuff..I was curious if Richelle would actually get it all right (I'm very familiar with russian traditions, etc.) So lets say when Rose almost choked herself to death after drinking Vodka I was laughing so hard and said "thats SO true" (even though I personally can handle :P) But after that the story got me hooked. I enjoyed R/D moments but it really felt kinda weird them not beeing really themselfes. But other than that still my shipper heart was jumping :D Rose's escape broke my heart, especially the bridge scene! And I have to say all the things in the end were predictable for me! So it wasn't that big of a cliffhanger for me. I knew the moment Rose asked the one particulat question on the bridge and kept asking herself..I knew it wasn't over. And as soon as Oksana and Mark mentionet Robert I SO knew what to expect in the following book(s). It sounds like a lot to come for Rose and Lissa in the future. I'm already looking forward to their jorney, even the prison break (Viktor should have brought Michael Scofield with him) All in all this was a pretty dark life period for Rose and I can't wait to see what happens next!
