Blood Promise, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (5 ratings)

Description

How far will Rose go to keep a promise? The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir's Academy was the deadliest ever in the school's history, claiming the lives of many.

Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them - including Dimitri.

He'd rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa-the one she has sworn to protect no matter what-and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago.

But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?

PLUS - * I like this series in a lot of ways, especially when compared to some of the other 'vampire-fest' stories that are around at the moment.* The female lead characters are strong and positive - none of this love stricken drooping around after gorgeous vampires / werewolves (Bella Swann in particular - don't get me wrong, I like Twilight, but I did have the urge to tell Bella to pull herself together every now and again!)* The different types of vampires - Moroi / Strigoi / Dhampirs - give far more options for interesting plot devices than the usual Vampire / NonVampire characters. MINUS -* I think the books are getting weaker as the series progresses, though it's difficult to explain without giving away lots of spoilers. This fourth one in particular I found really quite repetitive and drawn out in places.OVERALL - * Good characters, an interesting take on vampire stories, not the best writing in the world, but if you read and enjoyed the first couple in the series you'll want to find out what happens next. Two more in the series still to come!

Rose goes to Siberia, Russia to kill Dimitri as she promised and she also gets to know Dimitri’s family. While in Siberia, she meets this strange older guy who shows up when she’s in danger. She’s captured by Dimitri but manages to escape later on. We see what’s happening on Academy when Rose slips into Lissa’s mind and Adrian pays few visits in her dreams. Can’t really say much more without telling too much...I think this was the best book so far. The book had a darker theme and I think Rose has (finally!) matured a little. She certainly didn’t annoy me so much anymore! Didn’t like Lissa at all this time, she was just a page-filler with her partying and drinking. The only good thing was that at the same time you get to see Adrian too. Somehow now that Dimitri is Strigoi, he’s and Rose’s age difference didn’t disturb me that much.

Ah the angst. Rose is hunting Dimitri and trying to work out if she can kill him or not, he's now a Strigoi, or evil vampire and she's hunting his homeland in Siberia for him, finding his family and another Spirit user along the way. This is a bridging novel, Rose is finding out about herself and about what she has to do to survive. Her life is a bit more complicated after this but also she's more sure of herself and the relationship she has with Lissa. A series you need to read in sequence and this one has a lot in it that deals with some earlier issues and sets things up for later, I'm interested in how relationships with Christian and Adrian continue.

Good, really good, don't really like the parts where she links back to Lissa, since I'm really interested in her little Russian adventure, and lets just say, that is one hell of a journey in itself.
