Review: Shadowkiss (Vampire Academy 3) by Richelle Mead


where I got my book: snatched it froma  friend's book case ( I need to buy my own after this)
where can you get your copy: Barnes & Nobles, Borders

Is Rose's fate to kill the person she loves most? It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason's death, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret . . . .She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.

Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever...

Another EXCELLENT book in the series! This is my favorite so far. I am also glad that now we have grasp on what "shadowkiss" really means...

I am just going to do this as a quick rant without really giving out anything major but something that will get those who are not convinced that this should be a tbr priority.

Complications are piling up. Rose seems to be getting a lot of it. This series contains angst beyond ordinary teenager (in fiction). Mason came back, only not as what we all hoped for. The Guradian field experience is up and there was an unexpected pairing. Lissa can use her powers again only there are consequences and our badass best guardian in the making plays a role that is so huge it questions the Dhampir to Moroi code of conduct or motto or whatever you wanted to call it. Victor jack^%$ was ushered away, for now. The Queen is a total bitch and has a long term goal that got me pissed off ( I know it's only a book and I should calm down, but no. I am passionate and this is what I feel). We also still have Adrian and I think he's going to stay, I actually like his role but I am still suspicious. Christian's insecurity about that his family reputation and Adrian-Lissa training with their magic is getting the best out of him. The moment that I was waiting for finally happened, what now?! how will this change them? I am so EXCITED!!! I think most of the fans that read that part actually jumped up and down, coz I did and some people I know did too. Only they aren't at lunch sitting inside their office with an open door when they did that. (uh-huh I embaraased myself again). Finally an unexpected, never been imagined, never benn questioned and action pack "awesomeness" happened and a part that screams "this is an outrage! really is this happening?" How? What? I am not telling, you have to read it NOW people, you don't know what you're missing.

I was so suckered in I wanted to e-mail Richelle Mead all these questions and demand some answers.
Seriously I think I'm OD-ing on fantasy. LOL

I definitely understand! This was one of those few books that actually made me depressed for hours after reading it. At that time, Book 4 wasn't out and I was DYING to know what happened!
