The heart of the story focuses on the hero Rose Hathaway's journey to fulfill the promise she made to herself and Dimitri. During this journey, Rose finds herself in situations she would never have imagined--mob-like characters whose intentions are ambiguous, other aspects of Moroi life she was not privvy to, along with her first encounter with a dhampir commune, meeting other dhampirs with a vendetta like her, and finally, her heart stopping confrontation with Dimitri. No spoilers will be given, for that would take away at the amazing story Mead has created, but rest assured, you have seen absolutely nothing yet.
The novel was a mind-blowing experience full of amazing adventures and action that showed no signs of letting up at any point during the reading. Richelle Mead's writing has grown more sophisticated and despite the dark setting is full of humor and will make you race through the pages, leaving yourself blinking at the last page wondering where all the time went.
All you people who want to micro-analyze the plot twists and the technicalities can go on being bitter about what you find doesn't make sense or fit into your little box of rightness. I want to take this for what it was - an emotional roller coaster and a great read AS PART OF A SERIES OF BOOKS. Trying to make the books what you want them to be makes you the author and not Richelle Mead.I wanted to hate the book at times and I wanted to believe so many things were going to turn out to be true. Somehow Richelle Mead would make it all turn out all right in the end. I had to rationalize it somehow because my heart was breaking. The further I got in the book, the more my heart ached and somewhere down inside I knew how it would turn out. Just when you think you know and you've cried and cried, you find the author has let you have a glimpse of salvation. Just a morsel to hold on to.
Perfection in any author is not possible. Said author will never be able to please all of the people all of the time. At one point in the book I was so heart broken that I realized I could never read another of her books.Read more ›
I mean, it wasn't just the romance between Rose and Dimitri that has kept me riveted, but to see it end the way it did, was beyond painful.
Rose is hurting and it's awful to read about her broken heart as she tries to keep the most important promise she's ever made to the only man she'll ever love. Keeping the promise will probably kill her, literally and emotionally, but she's determined. She heads off to Russia, hoping to find Dimitri's hometown and thus him, but things don't go at all the way she's planned.
After a strange encounter with an Alchemist (trust me, it's an odd but interesting twist to the story) she finally tracks down Dimitri's hometown in Siberia. What follows is sad heaped on a weepy pile of despair as she meets Dimitri's family, visits places he used to go and finds a bonded pair of gifted moroi and dhampir.
Then the unthinkable happens; she finds Dimitri.
I wont say what happens next, just that it wasn't what I was expecting and it was the better for the surprise.
There was a lot going on at home too with Lissa, Adrian and a new person at the school who seems a little too good to be true.
All I can say about the ending is that it sets the stage for an exciting and hopefully happy book five.
Sigh, more waiting.
Ok this is going to be really hard not to spoil the plot for you guys... the middle and end were so mind blowing, I was afraid then vindicated. Rose is lost trying to figure out who she is and what she really wants in life. Meanwhile Lissa is losing herself slowly to the darkness as well as something more sinister.
So does love prevail? Read the last chapter and you tell me, I can tell you that I think I know what the next book will be about. For those of you who have already read it, and for those of you who will, you will be praying and crossing your fingers that fairy tales do exist and that Lissa and Rose finds it.
I really wish it hadn't gone into hard cover price but Richelle Mead has just gotten better and better with each installment. Even if you don't buy it, read it. There were parts I gripped the cover so tight my fingers cramped with an effort to reach out to Rose, Lissa and Dimitir.
