Rating: 4.7 Stars
Spoiler Free: Yes, but summary isn't.
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere.
She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.
But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price?
Fall in love with Rose and Dimitri all over again in Spirit Bound, the eagerly awaited fifth novel in Richelle Mead's enthralling Vampire Academy series.
Okay, WOW. What I have not said about these series that I haven't yet? Oh, I know. It's super freakin' awesome. I didn't like Blood Promise as much as I had hoped for, so I was expecting Spirit Bound would be a lot better. And boy, oh boy, it was.
Spirit Bound, the second to last installment, was seriously epic. The plot was addictive and jaw dropping, most of the characters were their awesome selves, the prose is very fluid, and the ending leaves enough questions for a cliffhanger! Why, oh why, must Richelle make these cliffhangers? She's killing me here! My only problem with this book was Rose. She wasn't very likeable in this book, and I can't explain without spoiling the book.
Anyways, just read Spirit Bound or even begin the series if you haven't already. It's seriously good.
