Review Bookie - Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
Last, but not least.
Let me explain these words for you. In a way, it’s really the last sacrifice for one of characters in Vampire Academy series. But for other characters, this is just a prologue of another wonderful series by Richelle Mead. I won’t tell you who they are, so if you haven’t known it yet, I urge you to go to the bookstore and buy this book. Because this book is simply amazing.
Rose Hathaway, our favorite heroine, is in big trouble. She was accused of a murder, where Queen Tatiana is the poor victim. Someone must have behind all of this. The question is who is the person?
Be careful, Readers. The murderer might be closer than you think, and prefer.
Lissa Dragomir is not very lucky too. The terrible situation puts her as one of the candidates of Queen Chair. Lissa has to learn things fast, and alone, since her bestfriend Rose is away with her own mission, finding Lissa’s stepbrother, or stepsister…
In this book, Rose experiences many difficult and tiring situation, and I think she handles it quiet well. I admit that some of her decisions are not preferable for me, but I guess it might be the best for everyone. Rose is still one of my favorite heroines, with her aggressive-yet-brave acts, and her witty comments.
You can’t help but tearing through the pages. And luckily, Richelle Mead decided to make another series based on the characters of Vampire Academy. I can hardly wait to read Bloodlines!
Especially to meet my favorites character ever, the spirit user Adrian Ivashkov there. :)
I tugged gently on his arm. “It’s over. You’ve done enough.”
“It’s never enough, Roza,” he whispered. The grief in his voice killed me. “It’ll never be enough.”
“It is for now,” I said. I pulled him to me. Unresisting, he let go of his stake and buried his face against my shoulder. I dropped my stake as well and embraced him, drawing him closer. He wrapped his arms around me in return, seeking the contact of another living being, the contact I’d long known he needed.
“You’re the only one.” He clung more tightly to me. “The only one who understands. The only one who saw how I was. I could never explain it to anyone . . . you’re the only one. The only one I can tell this to . . .”
I closed my eyes for a moment, overpowered by what he was saying. He might have sworn allegiance to Lissa, but that didn’t mean he’d fully revealed his heart to her. For so long, he and I had been in perfect sync, always understanding each other. That was still the case, no matter if we were together, no matter if I was with Adrian. Dimitri had always kept his heart and feelings guarded until meeting me. I thought he’d locked them back up, but apparently, he still trusted me enough to reveal what was killing him inside. I opened my eyes and met his dark, earnest gaze. “It’s okay,” I said. “It’s okay now. I’m here. I’ll always be here for you.”
