Shadow Kiss Book Review (VA Series) and Giveaway Reminders

Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, Book 3)

Title: Shadow Kiss
Series: Vampire Academy Book #3
Author: Richelle Mead

Official Synopsis
It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy and Rose is close to graduation, but since making her first Strigoi kills, things haven't felt quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all . . . might be seeing ghosts. Consumed by her forbidden love with her tutor Dimitri and protecting her best friend, the Moroi princess Lissa, Rose is in no state to see the deadly threat that will change her entire world - and make her choose between the two people she loves most.

My Review
As I said before about this series, the books get better with each installment and this one takes the cake. Rose is living in a daze while trying to pretend that she is fine. This comes to an end when she starts to see ghosts. So close to graduation she feels her life slipping through her fingers. She is in love with a man she can't have, even though he loves her too; she wants to be Lissa's guardian but is failing at her tests because of the spirits distracting her, and the carefree person she once was is buried with her dead friend, and has been replaced by a dark urge that drivers her mad. Struggling to break free of the many obstacles trying to hold her back she is faced with a decision that is harder than any situation she has ever dealt with. Rose must choose between the two people she loves the most and either way - she is destined to lose one of them.

This is such an emotional thriller of a read with a super shocker ending. You will cry, you will scream, your heart will sing, it will break, and once you are done all you'll want to do is read the next installment of this series.

This book is rated 5 fangs:

Gosh, I am still so bummed I haven't read this series!
My bestie keeps talking about it and she is up to book 4 I think, because that's the most recent one translated into Greek (my friend's English isn't very good).
But wow it is so original and I love the different layers and classes of vampires... And the romance aspect sounds superb!!!
