Fate brought them together he was her protector, teacher, and forbidden lover. In Shadow Kiss Rose and Dimitri fought the ultimate battle, when the Strigoi begin invade the academy ground. With the fight no longer on safe ground, it will take all of the guardians and trainees to protect the Moroi. Although, not without casualties. Rose never would have thought the causalities would include that of her beloved Dimitri. Not only has she lost her love, but she is now faced with keeping her promise. Dimitri was not just killed ; unable to find his body can only mean that he is now turned Strigoi. Rose is left with the promise that if ever turned; it is her responsibility to kill the other. She must leave all she knows behind to find and kill her lover.
This is the fourth book in the Vampire Academy Series. While I was unsure about the first book, after a slightly slow beginning it picked up pace and captured my interest. Rose and Lisa's journey is one awesome read, and every book is better than the last. I found Shadow Kiss to be utterly disturbing, after three books of turmoil in a forbidden relationship they had finally discovered they could not live seperated. Only to have tragedy pull them apart again. I can not wait for the August release.
If you have not read anything by Richelle Mead, she is an amazing author. This is one of three series that I follow, and I would recommend all of them. If you have not read this series you must take a look. It will not disappoint.
