Review: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

Published: May 18th 2010 by Penguin/Razorbill
Hardcover, 489 pages

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.

My Take (Spoilers):

I thoroughly enjoyed this installment of the Vampire academy series. It was fast-paced and Richelle Mead draws you in like not many Authors can.

I thought that Rose would only "save" Dimitri in the last few pages and was surprised when it happened earlier! I also did not see Tatiana's murder coming and these surprises delighted me! I think that Rose needs to learn some Self-control, although I like her reckless side.

Another cliffhanger that leaves us turning the pages to find there is no more!

My Questions:

Why does Rose retaliate against Dimitri by spending the night with Adrian? If she really loves him so much why does she delude herself into thinking it can work with Adrian?

Why does Rose not just tell people Abe is her Dad?

Favourite Quote:

"I'll find you. There is no place in this world you can hide from me. I'm watching.
Love, Dimitri"

I'll admit I haven't read this book, but this quote

"I'll find you. There is no place in this world you can hide from me. I'm watching.
Love, Dimitri"

sounds so very stalkerish. Typical. Stalking = love.

Interesting book. I liked your review, it wasn't bad. I'll be working up my first review soon. Vampires aren't so much my thing, but I'll keep watching to see what else comes up in the future.:)
