Review: Last Sacrifice: Richelle Mead

Title: Last Sacrifice
Author: Richelle Mead
Vampire Academy Series: Book 6
Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?

   I really liked this cover. The girl is very pretty and it ties in very nicely with the series! Although I do like  some of the international covers for this series.
My Review:
I absolutlely love this series. (spoilers)

I am so happy Dimitri was with Rose throughout the whole book. I literally was so nervous when Dimitri was at th end of that hallway to help break Rose out. I knew he was going to be part of it he just had to be. I was laughing so much when Rose tricked Dimitri into a kiss just to punch him after. I wanted them to fall back in love; just like the way they originally had.

I really have not found any two characters that belong together the way these two do. I feel Richelle did an awesome job of showing us again why they belong together. Richelle did an awesome job at reminding and rekindleing their love for one another. There love was never i just met you so I love you and am obsessed with you. It has always been something that grew from similar morals, personalities and many other amazing things.

Although I had figured out who was Lissa sister before I read LS, I didn't know for sure who killed the queen. Wow I was surprised. The ending felt a little rushed but I think that was purposely done for many reasons. I think Richelle left those loose strings purposely for Bloodlines.

I am very happy to see Lissa being as helpful and supportive to Rose even though they weren't necessarily together. I'm so happy Rose and Dimitri ended up together. Even though I grew to like Adrian a bunch I knew he was never meant for Rose. I think Rose said it perfectly (She has never named herself the victim), and that right there says a lot about her character. She has always needed someone to have the ability to take care of her even though she can take of herself and not once did I ever think Adrian was able to be that person for her.I was upset that there wasnt much closure for Adrian, but i think Adrian will have his happy ending in Bloodlines.

I was upset of how Rose and Lissa lost the bond, but I guess it is way better for Rose. She has lost that darkness and doesn't have to worry about Lissa all the time. I think in a way the Last Sacrifice was Rose jumping in front of Lissa before she got shot.Just for the simple fact that was ultimately the last sacrifice to literally save Lissa's life while having that life time of darkness being taken away from that act.

I really loved this series, Richelle has an amazing was of making theese characters so real and I am so happy she created this beautiful world. She is an amazing author and is Officially the best. Thanks so much for this amazing Journey!!!

  2. Glad to hear another person is entering Richelle Mead's wonderful world. You will fall in love get back to me when you finish with Shadow Kiss!!

  3. I'm in love with this series. I'm honestly depressed that it's over! Aren't Dimitri and Rose perfect together?!
    Ah, the good ol' kiss-punch. I was in fits over that one!
    Really? I was totally the other way round! I had no idea about the sis, but I guessed the murderer! Weird, right?
    Brilliant review!

  4. I really agree with your assessment of the novel.Pretty much everything you said is how I felt while I was reading the book. I'm intrigued to know how you figured out who Lissa's sibling was before you read this book. I absolutely could not figure it out.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
