Book Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

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?

Last Sacrifice is the sixth book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. It's the last book in the series, and it is definitely the perfect ending.

I'm not going to say too much, because there isn't much I can say without spoiling the book. When Rose was accused of killing Queen Tatiana, she was put in a cell, awaiting trial, and a possible death sentence. After breaking free though, she needs to find what she can to prove that she wasn't the murderer. And to top it all off, she also has to find a long lost secret daughter of Eric Dragomir, who can give Lissa the validity of the vote for queen.

I love Rose. If you stood Rose from book 1 and Rose from book 6 side by side, you wouldn't know they were the same person. Rose has changed so much through the course of the series, and I love her. She's strong, independent, and she'll whatever it takes to save the people she loves. Even if it means she' risking her own life. She's a great friend to Lissa, and her relationship with Dimitri is so sweet.

I love all the characters actually. They're all so believable and you can't help but care for them and feel their emotions. More than once throughout the book, I felt happiness, sadness, fear, relief, annoyance, and all other kinds of emotions for the characters, and the writing of Richelle Mead really makes the reader feel like they are there, with Rose and Dimitri, or with Lissa at Court.

Overall, the book was the perfect end to an awesome series. It's full of twists and turns, and there's a big twist at the end that came as a massive surprise. I'm quite sad to see the series end, and I'm sure I'll re read it sometime. I can't wait to read anything else Richelle Mead will write about the world of Moroi and dhampirs, because I know, it's going to be great.

I give it 5 Feet!

  2. Glad you felt satisfied with this book as the end of the series. Haven't read this series yet myself but if ever I did it's good to know it ended well.

  3. I felt satisfied as well, although the few "things" that were brought up at the tail end made me wonder about them too. But I guess that is what the next series is for!

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
