Grade 9 Up—This latest installment is a wonderful mix of love, loss, loyalty, and betrayal. Half vampire and half human, Rose Hathaway's world is torn apart when the love of her life, Dimitri, is turned into a Strigoi, one of a group of evil, undead vampires out to destroy the Moroi, who are living vampires. She drops out of St. Vladimir's Academy and journeys to Russia to save Dimitri from himself. In St. Petersburg, she befriends Sydney, a member of a secret group of alchemists who aids in her quest. Together they track down Dimitri's family in Omsk; her stay there gives her time to heal as well as to make an important discovery about her relationship to her friend Lissa, a Moroi princess with healing abilities. When Rose confronts Dimitri, he takes her hostage and puts her to the ultimate test. The story features strong character development and an action-packed plot full of many twists and turns. A well-written and satisfying story that will leave older teens wanting more.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

While this book annoyed me to no end (hence why it took me about two weeks to get through), I did enjoy some aspects of it like seeing the Moroi world translated into the Russian/Siberian culture and a lot of the new characters that we were introduced to. Still this book frustrated me to no end.
I honestly don't know if it's a good or bad thing that I'm going to read Spirit Bound. At this point, it can either get really good or really bad. And there's only one way to find out which one it is.
This author is a phenomenal writer and has certainly captured the attention of my 15 year old daughter. She loves this series of books and stalks the timeline of when the next book will be released. My daughter praises the editing of this book and series because she gets mad, throws it, picks it up and cries into the pages, and it still holds together. Once she is done torturing the book she passes it along to some of he book club girlfriends that I am sure sends it through another barrage of testing. Overall they love the author and binders for the good product.
In terms of twists and turns, Blood Promise has definitely reached quota.
I have always sort of related so much to Rose, in her intense fervor in protecting the people she loves, the recklessness and the way she leaves the rest to chance. In the real world, she'd probably be the luckiest girl to be able to survive what she's been through. Of course in the real world, there wouldn't be Moroi, Strigoi, or Dhampirs... or would there be..
Rose just went above and beyond in this book, and her love for Dimitri was front and center in her priorities. It's a change from being all about protecting Lisa and making sure she stays the innocent, and oblivious Moroi.
Dimitri, like I have always expected him to be, still stayed the bad ass godlike warrior he always has been. The twist in his story has made Rose's decision more reasonable. I don't want to give away too much about him so I'll leave it at that.
This chapter in the series will leave you gasping for air.
Read MORE. There is no way that you can stop at this point..lol
