Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.
She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.
Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.
But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?
I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the final installment in the Vampire Academy series. The last novel, Spirit Bound, ended at such a pivitol point that I thought I wouldn't be able to wait for the next book. I devoured this book in just one day, even with my busy schedule. I thought that Richelle Mead wrapped up this series nicely and I am very excited for her next series where some of her other characters will take the main scene.
A LOT happens in this book. Crazy things, happy things, sad things, and things that gave me butterflies! I laughed, I cried, I sighed, and finally closed the book with a satisfied feeling. I have to say, I had doubts about how Mead would wrap up everything with all of the horrible things that have occurred in the series thus far. However, I know now never to doubt amazingly creative author.
*SPOILERS BELOW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ SPIRIT BOUND*
My favorite moments involved Dimitri and Rose, and Adrian and Rose. I really had no clue who Rose would end up choosing, as both guys are so amazing! When Rose finally did make her decision, it was bittersweet. While I was happy for her and one guy, I felt awful for the other. That being said, I think she made the right decision considering what led up to the moment.
*POSSIBLE SPOILERS OVER*
Nothing in Last Sacrifice is expected, so prepare to be on the ride of your life when you read it! I recommend reading it on a day where nothing is planned as it is much to hard to put down. The action never stops! I loved every moment and Richelle Mead truly outdid herself! If you haven't yet pick up this series, I highly recommend it! I would have to say that Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series!
