For Rose Hathaway, everything seems out of kilter. Ever since she made her first Strigoi kills, a dark shadow has been creeping over her. Looming in the background, too, is another realization: If she follows her forbidden love for guardian Dimitri Belikov, she might lose her best friend forever. And these sleep-shaking worries couldn't have come at a worse time. The immortal unloving are prowling everywhere, famished for vengeance against her.

What can I say, this book is amazing. Personally, I think it’s the best book in the series so far.

Shadow Kiss is the third book in the Vampire Academy series that leaves you itching to see what happens next. Mead conveys an excellent tale with her use of imagination, humor and witty comments. A page turner all the way through with much action and suspense.

This book was ideal for me since I like a strong female lead, and I got what I wanted and more from Rose. To me, Rose is a role model for the courage to act on your instincts and to save your loved ones no matter the cost, even if it’s your life on the line. I was totally heartbroken and crushed to the point of tears when Rose had to admit to the Belicov’s what had happened to Dimitri.

Mead had left us at a total cliffhanger at the end of Spirit Bound, book #5 in the Vampire Academy series, when Rose is blamed for the murder of the Moroi queen.

On my part, Mead is taking the book in a direction we could not have thought of and I can’t wait to see what will happen. What will happen? Will Rose get away with it this time? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see what is to come in the Last Sacrafice, book #6 in the Vampire Academy series.
