Review: Shadow Kiss: Richelle Mead

Title: Shadow Kiss
Author: Richelle Mead
Vampire Academy Series: Book 3
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. An adrenaline-laced episode of the teen pop favorite Vampire Academy.

My Review:
I really loved this book. One of the reasons was because Rose has grown up a lot and is more and more mature. She has gone through so much by this time that you cant help but love her for being so strong.
*** Alert Spoilers Below****

I think this book shows how amazing Rose really is. Among her regular stresses shes deals with, she's now dealing with mason's ghost following her, crazy amounts of anger, and taking all that darkness from lissa. She's also trying to be more adult with the whole dimitri situation. She's not resulting to childish behavior like in Frost Bite.

I feel like this book really depicts how much Dimitri really loves and cares for Rose. There really was so much foreshadowing in the previous books and especially this one, that you cant help but wonder what is going to happen.

I know that this book might not have been liked for its ending but it really was an amazing ending. In shadow kiss you really can see how serious Dimitri and Rose are about being guardians and you see how talented they are. I'm also very in this book because Dimitri opens up to Rose.I love how he finally let his guard down for Rose as well seeing her for what she is.

He even started thinking about their future together. Now as for the whole Dimitri turning strigoi thing, it was bound to happen. Richelle foreshadowed this in vampire academy, and I think it needed to be done. This book is definately one of my favorite from the whole series.
