Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)
Published May 2010
Synopsis (contains spoilers for those who haven't read the the other books)
Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong… 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. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and 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.
Okay so I know I didn't review the other books in the Vampire Academy series but I received Spirit Bound for review so here goes!
I. LOVED. IT. This series is just too amazing. I loved the other books but Spirit Bound was just.. wow. I'm speechless. Spirit Bound continues after Blood Promise, with Rose and Lissa about to graduate and let me tell you, there's more drama than ever. The plot was excellent and the beginning had me hooked right away. Richelle brought new aspects to the storyline and revealed new things about spirit users, which was awesome to know. She's one of my favorite authors.
Rose is obviously one of my favorite heroines. She's beautiful, courageous, strong, hilarious, etc. I just love reading the books from her perspective. Everything she does is either funny or dangerous. I also love every character in this series, good or bad. They all have very deep personalities and wild characteristics that make the books so enjoyable. The characters have to go through even worse stuff in Spirit Bound and it was fun to see Lissa and Rose outside of the Academy with two awesome characters accompanying them, Eddie and Adrian. Oh and we can't forget our lovely bad boy, Dimitri! I love the turn of events in this book for him, Rose and Adrian.
Any bad things about Spirit Bound? No way! Well it was too short for me, I never wanted the book to end. I never thought that it would live up to my expectations since Blood Promise blew me away but Richelle continues to surprise me. Spirit Bound takes you on an unforgettable adventure that makes your heart race. I can't wait to read the last book but I'll also be disappointed to see the series end. If you haven't read these books yet, add them to your to-read pile! One of the best books I've ever read.
