She’s at the largest Schola on the continent, and beginning to learn what it means to be svetocha–half vampire, half human, and all deadly. If she survives her training, she will be able to take her place in the Order, holding back the vampires and protecting the oblivious normal people.
But a web of lies and betrayals is still closing around her, just when she thinks she can relax a little. Her mentor Christophe is missing, her almost-boyfriend is acting weird, and the bodyguards she’s been assigned seem to know much more than they should. And then there’s the vampire attacks, the strange nightly visits, and the looks everyone keeps giving her. As if she should know something.
Or as if she’s in danger.
Someone high up in the Order is a traitor. They want Dru dead–but first, they want to know what she remembers of the night her mother died. Dru doesn’t want to remember, but it looks like she might have to–especially since once Christophe returns, he’ll be on trial for his life. The only person who can save him is Dru.
The problem is, once she remembers everything, she may not want to…
I am so in love with this series! Each book just keeps getting better! If you thought things couldn't get any worse for Dru, think again. I feel so bad for all that Dru has been through. What with her mom murdered, her dad turned into a zombie and killed, and Dru on the run for her life. Dru is so strong and manages to hold it all together, though she breaks a little in this book.
The comic relief of this book is definitely her bodyguards, especially Benjamin! He's a bit of a shopping snob *giggles*. Also, Anna's nickname. The Red Queen. Perfect for her! She is so mean and evil and such a bitch to everyone around her, especially Dru. If I was Dru, I would have told her off in Betrayals, not waited this long. I can understand why Dru wouldn't before though! I mean, she is Head of the Order and really scary (and crazy). I was so happy with the relationship development in this book, with both Graves AND Christophe. *sigh* Can I have both, please?? I have to admit though, I was a total Christophe fan before this book and I now I am torn between Christophe and Graves!! I don't know how Dru is going to decide. =(
I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. So much happens in this book. Relationships get stronger, we find out who's been the traitor all along, and the ending is so heartbreaking. I desperately need spring to be here so I can read Defiance!
