I have to admit that I was frustrated with the characters in this novel at times. Lissa's anger towards Christian was really pointless. I also was irritated with her and Dimitri's weird relationship in the latter part of the novel. With Rose still clearly in love with Dimitri, Adrian acting all hurt when he finds out that Rose is still very much taken by Dimitri was dumb. But Rose also shouldn't string him along, knowing that she can't fully give her heart away. I can get both sides. Come on, guys, we know that Rose and Adrian aren't going to get their happily ever after.
These small character annoyances were minor and overshadowed by the amazing second half of this book! In the last book, Rose finds out that there may be a way to turn a Strigoi back to who they were before. This consumes her and she goes to great lengths to track down the person who can help—Victor Dashkov. Crazy! We're talking a prison break and the whole nine yards.
There was a part in the last quarter of the book where I just wanted to swoon so hard. Richelle Mead gives us all what we wanted after more than two books, but not EVERYTHING we wanted. Rose is kept at a distance emotionally and Lissa of all people are in the way...UNTIL Rose is ambushed and a certain person jumps into protect her. SWOON. Seriously, so hot!
What I love about this series is that none of the books feel like filler. Every book is jam packed with action and has its own gripping storyline. Even though I've read this series before, I am so excited to get to the last book! I know what happens but that doesn't damper my enthusiasm. I feel like I'm reading this for the first time because I have such a horrible memory.
* I purchased this book myself.
*Contain spoilers if you haven't read the previous books in the series
I was just saying how I can't seem to get into Y.A. and here I am reviewing another Y.A. book LOL. That's the thing, there are some series that I simply can't deny and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, is definitely one of those. I've been postponing reading this latest installment, waiting to get closer to the release of the last book in the series, so a couple of says ago i finally read it and I LOVED it!
Richelle is a master in the art of writing stories full of heart and action, not to mention characters that move you so much, you can't really tell real from fiction.
Rose is one of my favorite heroines ever and even though she has gone through many different kinds of hell, places a 17 year-old should never come close to, in Spirit Bound she has to deal with even grander obstacles.
At the beginning of Spirit Bound we find our girl Rose still with Aidrian and finally getting to take her final test to become a guardian. The test is nothing but a blur after all that she goes through, throughout the novel. Prison Breaks, Sacrifices and Heart Breaks are only a few of the trials our heroine has to survive, not to mention the killer way Richelle ended the book, giving a little taste of the problems yet to come.
I got to see all my favorites back in this book, Dimitri, Christian, Tasha, Adrian. But, I have to admit that I am sick and tired of Lissa. Yeah, yeah she is a good friend, but the way she acted towards the end of the book pissed me off!
All in all, Spirit Bound is a fantastic addition to this incredible series, I couldn't put this book down for a second not to mention all the tears I cried by the end of the novel! I'm just glad Last Sacrifice is coming out this Tuesday! I can't wait!
