Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

I wasn't thrilled with the ending of Blood Promise, the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series, and I was worried that Spirit Bound would be have a lot of the same plot.

I was so wrong.  Spirit Bound was the best installment yet.  And with this cliffhanger ending, I can't wait for book six.

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong...

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.

I still think nothing will ever surpass the heartbreaking cliffhanger at the end of SHADOW KISS, though SPIRIT BOUND comes close. Even though BLOOD PROMISE brought the characters right back to where they started at the beginning of the novel, I still enjoyed the ride and I loved seeing evil Dimitri. I actually didn't like seeing weak Dimitri but he made up for it in the cafe scene! I'm so eager for book 6!

I am surprised all the writers of YA vampire themed books do not attend the Dark Shadows Festivals. I have been going since 1981! Barnabas (Jonathan Frid) attends, and in the early 90s Joan Bennett also was there many times.

Here's a photo I took of Lara Parker (Angelique) at last year's festival in Newark, NJ.
