Booklist

In a world that seems saturated with vampire books, Richelle Mead has created characters and a world that is both unique and believable.
VOYA - Erin Kilby
Rose is in her final stages of dhampir training. She is as tough as a silver stake and ready to draw some vampire Strigoi blood. But something is happening to Rose: her training assignments are all messed up, she has these awful headaches, random Moroi students are showing up battered and bruised in the clinic, and Rose cannot help but think it is her fault that Mason was murdered. When she starts seeing Mason's ghost, it becomes apparent that something is very wrong. The audience for the Vampire Academy series is aging right along with Rose, and in a savvy move by the author, the Rose's challenges reflect this newfound maturity.�The themes of loyalty and temperance continue to be reinforced through Rose's developing decision-making skills, although she is lacking temperance in the love department—the heat between Demetri and Rose is ready to erupt like a volcano. In a world drowning in vampire novels at every turn, this novel offers a truly unique, heart-pounding, action-packed, suspenseful read. A twist ending that challenges Rose's inner strength ensures the popularity of the fourth installment, Blood Promise, to be released in August 2009. Likely the fans of this series are already grinding their fangs in anticipation. Reviewer: Erin Kilby
