Review: Last Sacrifice

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) by Richelle Mead

Published December 7th 2010 by Penguin Group (USA)
Hardcover, 594 pages
sbn 1595143068

"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.



Once again a great read from Richelle Mead! Rose is in real trouble when this starts and only a crazy plan put together by her friends and family could save her.

A lot of loose ends are dealt with in this book, but also a lot of things were left open at the end.

As you will see in the spoiler section there was one thing I really really did not like and that is why this book can't get 5 stars from me, but 4. Rose lived up to her reputation but she also disappointed me.

The story however is as gripping as always!


What really got to me was the fact that Rose hurt Adrian so much. I did not like it all.
He deserved better and he should have had a happy ending too.

Don't get me wrong I want her to be with Dimitri, but she could have handled it better.

I do love the fact that Lissa became queen! Most of it was wrapped up in a nice little package at the end, but it left me wanting more. I don't feel like the story is done, but we will see what the rumoured "spin-off" series will entail. Sydney will be in it, so hopefully we will find out more about what happened to her. I wonder if it will be about the Alchemists?

Adrian better get a happy ending! That will make this book ok then.

I will definitely read the new series!


"What the Hell? I asked. Is this daring escape being sponsored by Honda?"

None :(

I felt the same way. I wanted more for Rose at the end. I felt like she didn't fight for what she wanted. *sigh* It was good, but still left me feeling sad.

Adrian's happy endinding will be in "Blood Relations", a spin off series to VA. And... he'll 90% end up with Sydney;)

The guys in there are truelly HOT! But Rose looks more petite than Lissa, which is wrong...
