Time She Is Truly Out Of Second Chances The Big Question Is, When Your Whole Life Is About Saving Others, Who Will Save You Join Rose, Dimitri, Adrian, And Lissa In Last Sacrifice, The Epic, Unforgettable Finale To Richelle Mead S International Bestselling Vampire Academy Series Heavy Sigh This review and of a rant that contains spoilers, so consider yourself warned Just mustering up the details of this book in order to write a synopsis takes extreme effort After reading 600 pages of this mess, I m not sure I have it in me to recount everything, actually, I know I don t, there is simply too much that happens and yet none of it was worth reading This is what you need to know.Lissa, Abe, Christian, Adrian, Eddie, Mikhail, and Dimitri break Rose out of jail Rose then escapes court with Dimitri where they latter meet up with Sydney who is being blackmailed by Abe to assist Rose and keep her hidden until he, Lissa, Christian, Adrian, and Co can clear Rose s tainted name.While Rose, Dimitri and Sydney stay hidden, Rose manages to do the following things aside from lusting after Dimitri while mentally telling herself she is over him Dream walk with Victor Naturally, Rose being an impulsive dumbass, tells him her exact location, plans to find the last Dragomir Lissa s half sibling and later clues she has uncovered about said half sibling Find Sonya Karp, her former teacher, who turned strigoi in order to stave off the effects of spirit, as she supposedly knows the identity of Lissa s long lost sibling Sydney discovered this while searching bank records Now that Rose and Victor are bosom buddies, Victor has his brother Robert heal Sonya with spirit to turn her back into a Moroi so that she will have to tell them the secret identity of Lissa s long lost sibling Rose and Co learn that Jill is the long lost sibling They go to find her, and Victor, true to form kidnaps her That was a huge surprise..not Rose rescues Jill and kills Victor, and then proceeds to feel very bad about it, but only for three pages Rose and Dimitri do it, while she is still with Adrian I might add, but don t worry, it isn t cheating, because she mentally dumped Adrian before she dropped her knickers.Meanwhile, back at court Lissa has been nominated as a candidate to become queen She takes a series of tests to become queen, which we are privy to via Rose s ability to snap into her mind Naturally, Lissa passes all of them Lissa and Co play detective, questioning Ambrose and a few others They uncover a series of very lame clues, that all point to the red herring, Daniella, Adrian s mother.With Jill in tow, Rose, Dimitri, and the now reformed Sonya Karp head back to court, where Rose exposes herself, Jill s identity and the name of Tatiana s murderer, who is revealed to be Tasha Ozera, Christian s aunt Naturally she does this in a crowded room, because heaven forbid she find a thoughtful way to break the news to her best friend that her dad was a cheating feign who spawned an illegitimate sibling or to her best friends man, that his aunt is a murdering loon But tactful as ever Rose breaks this gut wrenching news as eloquently as a charging bull, and everyone takes her word for it, because who wouldn t trust a lying, conniving, impulsive 18 year old girl Tasha of course goes on a psychotic rampage, even though her character has been thoughtful and intelligent thus far, and attempts to shoot Lissa Luckily Rose jumps in front of her just in time It is here that I paused to pray that Rose would die Sadly, my prayers were not answered, Rose lives, and as an added benefit, her bond to Lissa is severed Rose is now her own person, no longer linked to spirit I don t understand how or why, but there ya go In the last few pages, Adrian confronts Rose for being a cheater and basically calls her a manipulative, lying, user and abuser, and wishes her a life of misery, after all, because of Rose, Eddie may never work again, Jill is now bound to court politics, where her life will be in constant peril, and Sydney is now locked in alchemist prison In spite of the carnage, Rose believes Adrian s accusations are unjust, and paints his willingness to cast himself in the role of victim as the cause for his outburst I will say this, I envy Rose for her ego Lastly we learn that Rose has been assigned as guardian to Lissa, who is now queen, and Dimitri will be guardian to Christian They all live happily ever after.Qualms The consistent break in cannon Rose was able to communicate with Tatiana while in jail at court through the spirit ether, when in previous books court was her only relief from the spirit induced hallucinations due to its heavily warded state Tasha Ozera as the killer Come on, talk about a bitch move on Mead s part The woman s got a burnt off face, a tainted family name, and lost the man she loved to a spoiled, whorish 17 year old The lack of Christian, or even Eddie for that matter Characters who weren t introduced until book 4 play a larger role than these fan favorites Probably because Mead lacks the skills to write such a convoluted, wonky story with the characters she already had in place The ease with which Rose discovers Jill s identity Seriously, it took all of ten pages when you cut the filler That s bogus How would such a lame cover up have survived 15 years And if it was that easy for Rose, why wasn t it that easy for queen Tatiana, who had endless resources Rose and Dimitri s relationship Seriously, it was bull shit, all this, I love you but can t be with you because I used to be evil crap Then Rose later pretending she isn t obsessed with Dimitri while obsessing over Dimitri Not to mention that when the relationship started, it was illegal in most states The inclusion of the Keepers, who s purpose to this story remains to be seen, yet they take up at least 100 pages of this book Mead s inability to further mention Dimitri s family, who were made oh so important in book 4 only to never be heard from or seen again On that note, there was no mention of Mia either Or those pesky tarot card readings that seemed so like portents And I have yet to decipher who or what the last sacrifice was Tasha maybe She was certainly thrown under the bus Last but not least, Rose the Harlot Not only did this asshole of a character fail to develop, she digressed to the lowest of the low, and yet we readers are supposed to think she is fantastic I m at a complete loss as to why this deplorable character has so many fans She complained for 5 books about how much she secretly resented Lissa s dependence on her, and when Lissa exerts her independence to not only take care of herself, but Rose too, Rose complains Then there is her treatment of Adrian Adrian risks his life to protect her, and when she has the opportunity to tell him the truth about her and Dimitri, she doesn t, why, because, and I quote I might need him later, but soon, I ll do the right thing soon Oh Rose, how noble you are to do the right thing only when it is convenient for you.At this, I will cease my rant, because truly, I m not sure it will ever end. Complete and Edited Book Review.down there somewhere Thoughts before Reading Just scroll down little dhampir Okay the last book of the seriesWondering what Last Sacrifice means My speculations on who kills the Queen, I think it s probably Victor Dashkov since he is free now or maybe one of the royals I bet it s Adrian s father.I m Team Adrian, but if it s going to be like Twilight, then Rose and Dimitri would be together at the end, I d just hope something happens like Dimitri die or whatever lol.I think if they find Lissa half brother sister, then she ll be the next queen for the Moroi Society.I bet Rose will be a fugitive and Abe s the one would help her.I just wish the ending would not be too much of a happy ending like what happens in Breaking Dawn, when they don t fight in the battle so no one major dies Thoughts after Reading This One Note First I d like to say that I m really confused on how to rate this one thus I have two ratings If I will base it just on pure emotions alone or how I felt about the book in general I will rate this one star However, if I put my emotions aside and judge the book rationally I will have given it a five star But I favor my emotions rather my reasoning so it has a one star rating displayed up there But just to be cleared I repeat that this is a one and five star book at the same time.And then there will be SPOILERS, Fudge these SPOILERS Note Skim this one, this is just a crazy letter, bear in mind that I m still emotional.Dear Self,I hate you.I really hate you Why, why are you always like this Why do you always side on the second guy in a love triangle Is that a sickness of yours or something First in Twilight you re Team Jacob right And didn t you ever learn your lesson in that that the second guy will always be fucked up by the heroine in the end That they will just be trashed and dumped out like stupid piece of shit But you always team up with them don t you You still always most often than not love the second guy rather than the main guy right You pissed me off Look you already know how it will end Are you really that dumb since this one is what exactly happens in Eclipse too But what did you do You still hope and have that wishful thinking that Adrian and Rose will end up together That Dimka will die That Rose and Adrian will end up having little dhampir babies and that will be the solution to their dhampir will be extinct problem But girl you re so wrong don t you Because Richelle Mead broke your heart into microscopic pieces of myocardial cells Rose not only break up with Adrian, but she cheated on him She had sex with Dimka even before breaking up with Adrian What an irony is it right You re crying and losing your mind reading a sex scene because of the reason that you felt cheated too And now you still don t learn do you You still would have those naive fantasies that Puck and Meghann will end up in Iron King Series, Bianca and Balthazar will be together in Evernight Series and Jem and Tessa in Infernal Devices series Please it will never ever be a possibility, so I beg you don t fool yourself into thinking about it Sincerely yours,Evil Alter Ego The Five Stages of Grief as

We deserve each other Friend What It s a good thing you get past that but seriously friend, I think you have another problem, you now have delusions Book Review Finally I think this should be my longest review ever, why the hell are there so many intros Oo Let start with the good stuffWhy oh why the 5 star rating 1 The cover s gorgeous, that s a plus 2 The title was also good Last Sacrifice though I really don t get what the hell is the so called Last Sacrifice in this book Please someone explain that to me on the comment section.3 Rose POV is sarcastic, witty and funny as always that it never fails to crack me up.4 Abe Mazur was funny as hell as always.5 Sydney the alchemist was backed.6 We get to go to different places, like the community of the Keepers, Sonya s crib, etc.7 The Politics Gosh I love all of that The election of the new Moroi Queen and Lissa s tests are really exciting and different as she pass onto another level, like there s a test for physical, emotional and intellectual 8 I love the final test the question was like, What must a queen possess in order to truly rule her people And actually Lissa s answer to that shocked me and I love it.9 I love Lissa in this book I think she had that sort of character development in this one I kind of underestimated her because in the previous books I really thought that she was a weak character, but in this one she really did grow and I believe that she ll be an amazing queen.10 I also love Sonya Karp I think she has all that wonderful quotes in the book and I was really glad that she and Mikhail finally reunite.11 I also love Christian in this one even though I missed his firefighting coolness All of his scenes were like a good ol boyfriend to Lissa, but at least those happens to be sweet moments in this book that all of a sudden I really wanted to be Lissa.12 I really love the murder mystery aspect of the book, I must admit that tuuuut as the Queen s murderer was not that really shocking since someone already spoiled it to me in the comment section coughs lol I m just kidding but seriously as you go along the book there were clues that actually you really would have guessed that tuuuut was the one who did it.13 Okay let s talk about Lissa s sister, that kind of shock me because I really thought that what they will meet was a new character of the story, but it was tuuuuut OMG though yeah I was kind of happy about it because I kind of love her from the previous books.14 OMG Tuuuuuut died and tuuuut killed her because she kinda lost herself because of Spirit induced anger I think it was quite shocking but I really don t care about it because I really think that character deserved to die anyway.15 Victor and Robert team up with Rose s team I think that was also surprising and thrilling at the same time I also love the part when they fight and like Sonya use Spirit and then Robert uses spirit too and Victor uses earth It was pretty epic like an anime fight scene.16 Yeah in general I did think that this was an amazing book and an amazing series just minus the Adrian part It was fast paced, full of twist and turns, the characters are all great, it was thrilling and just simply amazing.Why oh why the one star rating 1 Rose cheated on Adrian Really Rose out of all the people TT you re unbelievable I would like to share some passages from the book, that really made me want to rip the book in half Page 417 We touched in no other way, but his hand held all the warmth in the world This was hardly a perfect moment, like in the library, but our familiar connection and the understanding between us burned brighter than ever, and it felt good Right Natural I didn t want to sleep I just wanted to stay there and savor being with him It wasn t cheating, I decided, thinking of Adrian It was just enjoying this closeness Oh really Rose Fudge you Note this next scene happen after Dimitri and Rose had sex.Page 488 Regardless, I couldn t lead him on after sleeping with Dimitri It hadn t been murder, no, but it had certainly dishonourable YetI couldn t say any of that to Adrian now, I realized I couldn t break up with him in a dream That was almost as bad as a text breakup Besides, I had a feeling thatwell, I d probably need his help So much for honor Soon, I swore Soon I ll tell him Rose you re the worst living creature ever TT You re not only a cheater, but a liar and a user as well 2 Worst break up in the history of my reading books ever Page577 I loved you he yelled He jumped up out of his chair so quickly I never saw it coming I loved you, and you destroyed me You took my heart and ripped it up You might as well have staked me The change in his features also caught me by surprise His voice filled the room So much grief, so much anger So unlike the usual Adrian He strode toward me, hand clasped over his chest I Loved You And you used me the whole time WTF This kills me TT I really hate this I hate Rose and Dimitri If I ever saw Dimitri in person I m going to do this Calm down, calm down, calm downOkay so much for drama, I just want to say that I still love the series and I still love Richelle Mead though you did break my heart and I ll still wait for the sequel to come out and for the movie as well.This btw is what I imagine Adrian will be I should preface my review by stating that I only read this book because I was given a copy by a very good friend of mine I read it because I wanted to know how it all ended and to be done with the series I had no good expectations of this book because I was less than impressed with Blood Promises and despised Spirit Bound People in love with this series should stop reading about now.Because, to be honest, reading this book was like reading an alcoholic unicorn chucking up rainbows while small children clap If that sounds kind of awesome then I think life may not have been kind to you.I should also preface by saying that I am neither Team Adrian nor Team Dimitri, though I am most certainly Team Shut The Hell Up Rose Every big problem I have with the series shows up in this book and it is fuelled by Mead s juvenile love of infantile plot and soap opera worthy melodrama For one, Rose, who I had believed to be a half decent character even by the end of Blood Promises, continues her nose dive into craptastic whore and regular pain in the arse brat I have heard several times that she grows in this book Unless these people are on a measuring scale comparable to the rate of growth for the shifting of giant fucking glaciers over a matter of hours, then I think some people are deluding themselves You know, I don t even mind a bratty character as long as it s obvious by the surrounding text, story, and supporting characters that she is a giant brat who deserves to get bitch slapped Preferably by Wayne Brady.However, everyone in this series fawns over Rose as if she s the second coming of the butt kicking messiah and she is constantly praised as a hero of legendary proportions who is kind, caring, selfless and always there for others Rose s minor, trivial and easily forgotten concerns over the lives she s ruined to achieve her ends are quickly dismissed at the end of the story No Rose Hathaway doesn t ruin lives She saves them She doesn t demand people give up their only daughter to a life of vicious court politics just so her best friend gets a freakin council vote She doesn t expect her friends to jeopardize their careers to help her with her love life criminal career only to ditch them immediately after because, hey, their concerns aren t her concerns She doesn t heartlessly cheat on her boyfriend, acknowledge to herself that it s a bad time to dump him because he could still be useful and then later tell him off for being a victim in her great dumping speech.Nooo er, wait Yeah, she does do all of that.Then, of course, is Rose s great love of public speaking which, once again, pops up in this book Christian Hey Rose, did you ever think it might be a good idea to tell the authorities and your friends about who the killer is first, in private, so that some of them aren t publicly humiliated and embarrassed while having their world pulled out from under them in front of hundreds of people Rose Er Christian Yeah, that s what I thought The girl needs to line up at the Ministry of Ridiculous Speeches right next to the Ministry of Silly Walks to get public funding every time the council is stupid enough to let her have free reign on a mic Which, by the way, has so far been pretty much EVERY time You d think they would have learned by now and Kung Fu d her vocal chords before she could open her stupid mouth at a public function.There is of course, someone annoying In fact, he s so annoying that he almost makes you feel SORRY for Rose Which, when you think about it, is comparable to making you feel bad for King Henry VIII for having to kill so many of his wives in order to get a son Have I mentioned before that this guy is particularly dickish Look, Dimitri, I know that in Soviet Russia, things are done differently, okay image error Oh, Lord There is really no reason for anyone to read the following review It s not a review at all really, but rather brain vomit, because I so so need to purge myself of this book And I shall do so with spoilers, cursing, and RANDOMLY CAPITALIZED SENTENCES So there ya go Don t say I didn t warn ya.I have never been in love with Vampire Academy No book in the series has ever warranted than four stars on my part, and I haven t bought any of them, either forcing my brother to buy it I ll promise to pay you back Not or borrowing them from the library If I had enjoyed this series overall, as many of my friends did, perhaps I would have been less frustrated with this book I always saw this series had potential, but instead Mead pulled a Meyer and epically failed.Shouldn t a series improve as it progresses and not make me want to cry anger tears My forehead hurts from all the headdesking and facepalming I did I m not even kidding I look like John Green did after he failed to follow proper headdesk safety regulations Only he could fail at expressing disdain for failure Anyway, my face hurts, I m a little dizzy, and I ve been stuck trying to finish this book for a week now and its all Richelle Mead s fault That s damn right I m a victim.In the first VA book, I thought Rose Hathaway was a little immature, but refreshing because she could take care herself when most YA heroines can t even tie their own goddamn shoes without complaining But in the end, she turned out just like the rest of them self absorbed and as annoying as hell This isn t passive dislike either I actively hate her Over the course of the novel I have called her every name in the book, and I am one bit of Rose logic away from tearing apart this novel with my teeth Rose is just insufferable She very well might be the most FRIGGIN ANNOYING PERSON IN EXISTENCE Hey, Rose, ever hear of a little thing called humility Oh, I m sorry, is it not badass enough for you Does it undermine your awesome hero epicness I guess so Rose needs to get frickin over herself God, even the writing was pompous, using phrases like clearly and obviously like a four year old uses lip gloss She is completely self absorbed and condescending towards others, looking down on those who didn t meet her standards of badassery And seeming as everyone except Dimitri and herself failed to meet this standard, she was looked down upon people a lot OMG If I have to hear one word about her super special guardian abilities, I shall shoot a leprechaun in the nads No, no, no She couldn t just watch and participate in a conversation like mortal beings She had use her guardian training which would scour facial expressions and hidden movements, picking up details that us weak and untrained humans would miss, pointing out the obvious as if she just won the Nobel Peace Prize Nothing could ever just happen with her It had to be action y in some way She didn t think, ideas hit her Everything was done without a moment s hesitation and with force It was just obnoxious I could go on and on, really, about all the sentence that annoyed me on every page, but I have feeling this review is already tedious.In this book, Rose is kind of like a less awesome version of Leeroy Jenkins without the chicken In real life, Rose, people will not just succumb to your awry plans then pat you on the head afterwards for your impulsivity after everything has gone annoyingly right In real life, dragons kill you Rose just has no consideration for others She always thinks her way is the best Forget the lives she ruins along the way, she s putting them first and isn t that what matters most Hardy har har Tell that to Jill who you didn t even ask and Christian who you didn t even consult with You didn t mind hurting them, did ya, Rose, as long as you had your dramatic reveal BTW, who the hell let her near a microphone again Come here so I can punch you.Back at the court, I felt like everyone was the Mystery Gang, except without the banging van and Scooby Doo What is the Mystery Gang without Scooby Doo A bunch of tools, thats what They had no personalities of their own, just working as pawns in Mead s little game Even my poor, sweet Adrian was glossed over Do Not Get Me Started On Adrian God, Rose is SUCH A BITCH rude gesture rude gesture rude gesture Dimitri, you turned out to be a real prick, ya know that I ve never really liked you but now I really don t like you Lissa, aren t you just the perfect little queen gags on bile All the rest of the characters aren t really important enough to discuss individually Oh, and I m also really pissed at what Mead did to Tasha First she makes a character who not only has a social stigma but also a physical deformity, makes her out into this crazed activist, and then turns her into this petty character who kills to get her guy Bad form, Mead Bad form.Another thing I found annoying was the constant back and forth between Rose and the court Not only does the bond being such a blatant plot device really bother me, but it seemed Rose would be in Lissa s head for hours Hours Doesn t Rose being like the ADHD s five year old that she is, get a little tired of that I know this book was mostly stalling, but she seemed to waste a lot of time There are many and plenty of other things I hate about this book, but I am done typing Overall, I hated it I will not be reading Mead s next series, Bloodlines, for she is clearly only looking for money at this point, as evidenced by her unoriginal prose, glaring typos it is though not thought , and tacky loose ends I am just so annoyed In the end, Rose got everything she wanted, unscathed One thing The cover Total porn star look Every person I asked agreed with me I was embarrassed to be seen reading this due to the sucky content, melodramatic title, and Miss Pouty Lips. What I asked uneasily Why are you looking at me like that He shook his head, the smile rueful now Because sometimes, a person can get so caught up in the details that they miss the whole It s not just the dress or the hair It s YOU You re beautiful So beautiful, it hurts me His warmth was all around me, as was his love, and again, I felt that completeness I had that missing piece of my world back The soul that complemented mine My match My equalThis was incredible I was so afraid what would happen in the entire book I have mixed emotions about the ending On the one hand, Rose finally got the happy ending she deserves after everything she is being through Not only Rose but Dimitri, Lissa and Christian as well I am so happy for them On the other hand, I feel sad because of Adrian, Sydney, Jill and Eddie They all helped Rose and Lissa because they wanted to except Sydney P she didn t want to but she helped her anyway and all of them end up having trouble and broken heart Adrian She hurt my Adrian So many things happened I don t know where to start 1 The escape As we know Rose is charged for killing Queen Tatiana So, Mikhail, Eddie, Abe, Dimitri and Adrian helped her escape from her cell They were great team I love them all 2 Hiding Rose isn t good at hiding Sydney had the perfect place for that and Rose caused trouble Again.Anyway, Sydney takes them to the Keepers, a group of Moroi, dhampirs and humans who live away from modern society They were a little creepy at first but when you get use to them they are really nice I really likes Joshua He is a dhampir When he met Rose, he immediately liked her and he wanted to marry her She politely reject him However, Angeline Joshua s sister thought that her bother has proposed to Rose and she accepted, it is tradition that the closest female member of Joshua must battle it out with Rose to see if she s worthy Angeline started a fight with Rose,and at the end she gave her blessing That scene was one of my favorite scenes in this book I laugh so hard Even Dimitri and Sydney find it amusing.3 Later, Sydney finds a lead about Lissa s sibling Sonya Karp, who was once Rose s teacher and now she is a Strigoi Victor and Robert wanted to find Lissa s sibling as well, so all of them met in Sonya s house and Robert changed her back into a Moroi So, Sonya leads them to Lissa s sibling 4 The unknown child of Eric Dragomir is Jill Mastrano.I will admit I did not see that coming In this book, I forgot that Jill existed I don t know why 5 Jill wanted to help Lissa but Victor and Robert kidnap her Sonya used her spirit abilities to track Victor and Robert Rose find them and she end up killing Victor I don t really blame her I hated him 6 Back at Court, Lissa, Christian, Adrian and Abe try looking for Tatiana s murderer and they suspected Daniella But it wasn t Daniella It was Tasha, Christian s aunt Poor Christian First his parent and now his aunt.7 Guilt pleasure Rose and Dimitri After Rose killed Victor, she blamed herself Dimitri wanted to comfort her He admits he loves her and he regrets losing her They end up make love and she cheated Adrian Adrian I will admit that Rose and Dimitri are perfect together They belong to each other but I didn t like Rose cheated on himWhat was love, really Flowers, chocolate, and poetry Or was it something else Was it being able to finish someone s jokes Was it having absolute faith that someone was there at your back Was it knowing someone so well that they instantly understood why you did the things you did and shared those same beliefs8 I hate Tasha Not only framed Rose but she accidentally shoot Lissa but Rose jump in front of her and takes the bullet As a result, the bond between Lissa and Rose was gone.9 Lissa was crowned as new queen I think she got this 10 The break upI loved you he yelled He jumped up out of his chair so quickly I never saw it coming I loved you, and you destroyed me You took my heart and ripped it upMy poor Adrian I feel so bad for him 11 I love AbeAh, my daughter, he said Eighteen, and already you ve been accused of murder, aided felons, and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see He paused I couldn t be prouder12 Summarizing, Rose and Dimitri end up together Lissa and Christian end up together as well Lissa is now the queen Adrian ends up with a broken heart Jill have problems with royals Eddie is accused of killing a Moroi and Sydney has problems with the Alchemists omg the title is scaring the heck outta me oh richelle.please please let rose and dimitri be together, i think i will go into depression if not, i really feel for these characters i love them so much i hope the spin off is adrian s story, though its probably not gonna be keep ur fingers crossed and hope i love how i wait for each of these books for a whole yr, read it in one day when i get and then the wait starts ALL OVER AGAIN gahhhh kill me goshnever suffered even half this much anxiety over twilight I dont know why everyones forgetting the most important character of allADRIAN IVASHKOVwhat will happen to him if Rose and Dimitri get back together Will he turn gay or something Read on 7th Dec 2010OMG Ahhhhhh I can t believe it That was.it s so., I don t think..I just can t sigh Let me start again.THAT WAS INCRDIBLE First I have to say.YAY Oh, yes, yes, yes..Rose and Dimitri got their happily ever after They ARE TOGTHER It s one of the best outcomes I ve ever seen in a book seriesever Now that that s out of the way..Gah, I don t know if I have the words to describe how brilliant this book was This entire series has been nothing but a heart wrenching, roller coaster ride of emotions and events from the very beginning, and it all came to a gripping conclusion that was or less.utterly perfect This is my all time fave series I ve never loved a book series as much as I love VA and going into this book I knew it was going to be spectacular It seems like I, and all the other fans, have waited forever after the nail biting ending of Spirit Bound and I m soooo happy to say that I wasn t disappointed From the very beginning the story drew me in I was gobsmacked with a few of the twists and left gaping throughout the whole book I literally couldn t put it down and from start to finish it was practically super glued to my fingers I read it in one sitting It was an electricity charged ride and I was desperate to know how Rose was going to get herself out of her current predicament the entire way From the very moment Dimitri, Adrian and Eddie broke Rose outta jail, a plan orcastrated by Lissa, Christian and Abe, I might add, I was gone..Nothing and no one could have stopped me reading Honestly, my house could have been on fire and I wouldn t have noticed.nor would I have moved until I d finished reading Actually, come to think of it..do I smell smoke sniff sniff All the characters I ve come to love and adore were here in all their glory Rose, Dimitri, Lissa, Christian, Adrian, Sydney, Eddie, Abe, Rose s mum, Jill I could go on and on..they were all there and it was great to see them again Rose and Dimitri sitting in a treeK I S S oh, whatever.THEY GOT BACK TOGETHER Yay does happy dance I m so happy right now I can t even put it into words After everything they ve been through, after all the torment and challenges, they ve finally gotten to the point when they see that they re soul mates, that they re meant for each othersomething we ve all known for quite a while I love Adrian, I do and it breaks my heart that his and Rose s relationship had to end the way it did Roseseriously, I d shake you for cheating if I wasn t so happy you and Dimka are back together , but I just can t deny that I feel like this is the right outcome Totally Completely Rose tried to give her relationship with Adrian a shot, but it just wasn t right I m glad Dimitri finally came to his senses in this book and admitted that he still loved Rose like that was a secret rolls eyes and that they are going to be together for real I really feel sorry for Adrian though I m really disappointed that Rose cheated on him I do feel like she should be better than that But I understand that people make mistakes and we can t help how our hearts feel I just feel like Adrian got the raw end of the stick Dimitri always had Rose s heart, let s face it, and I think Adrian deserves to find a girl who will give her whole heart to him and only him He needs someone to love him that can help him be the best person he can be And I m really hoping he finds that in the spin off series, because I don t feel like his story has been told It s not completed Jill was Lissa s sibling I will say that I did see that one coming It s something that I think is both obvious and yet it s not..it s a great little sub twist She s been under everyone s noses the whole time Lissa had a sibling right there at St Vladimir s and no one knew about it Totally cool The only thing I don t like was how Lissa reacted to Jill Yes, I get that it was a shock.one hell of a shock.but I also think she could have been a little inviting and friendlier to her new found sister Still..Tasha It was freaking Tasha Never once did I think she could be capable of something like murdering the Queen She always seemed like such a cool person, an ally I certainly didn t think that she d be the killer, even though I did see her motive beforehand I just thought she was on Rose s side, not that she was the one that set her up But I can see why she did it I guess I always thought her feelings towards Dimitri were never that strong I m thrilled that Lissa became queen I think it s a very good progression and evolution of the story I think that she is the best person to help the Moroi move forward and I hope that takes effect in the spin off series And Rose is Lissa a guardian and Dimitri is Christian s Is that not perfect or what Rhetorical question, don t answer that..of course it is Now they can be together and still do their jobs and duty Lord, this book was wonderful I just can t say it enough I really can t I don t know what people are going to say, but I m incredibly happy with this book I feel like everything we ve been through in the whole series has led to this moment, this ending, and I think it s very fitting.However, I also feel that there were a few loose ends left A few possibilities that I believe are going to be the focus of the spin off series Bloodlines First off I want to see what happens to Adrian I think he than anyone else deserves some kind of happiness I want him to find someone and I m still holding on to my hope that that person will be Sydney I think that despite her notions of dhampirs, he is than capable of changing her feelings I think he s charming enough to sweep her off her feet That is unless that other Alchemist Ian doesn t do it That s something I ll be watching I want to know what s going to happen to Eddie since he killed that Moroi How much is that moment going to effect his life And I d really love to see how Lissa goes as Queen and what happens to Jill I want the two of them to get to know one another and bond And now.It s over sob sob I can t believe it s actually over I don t know what I m going to do with myself not that it s finished, I really don t This series has been the best I ve ever read Throughout Rose s journey I ve smiled, laughed, practically cried when a certain Guardian became a Strigoi cough Dimitri cough and enjoyed almost every single moment, bar a few and again I head back to when a certain Guardian became a Strigoi There s been the ups and downs, the happy moments and the oh so sad ones, and I feel like the ending, the conclusion, makes all those moments when I wanted to scream out loud and often did or cry because everything just seemed so horrible..totally and utterly worth it Richelle Mead has created a treasure here and I recommend this series with heart and soul than I possibly have Warning Do not read this review because it is not for the easily offended as it contains masses of swearing, rage and crude sarcasm and if you can t handle it then look on Last Sacrifice in a nutshell Bullshit topped with every STD imaginable Last Sacrifice should die a painful, painful death for 1 Using a goldigging whore who uses only her sexuality to get what she wants and holds about as much brainpower as an empty glass Are we supposed to see Rose some sort of role model and the ideal strong female character when she truly isn t one 2 Glorifying a romance that seemed to match with child grooming ephebophilia, when really the foundation for the romance was a statutory rape masqueraded as alust charm, hero worship, and sex Lots of it.3 Making it seem perfectly fine that if your lover fucked your brains out in the bedroom but then constantly demean because of your age and your sexuality you then he is your soul mate No question Even if he turns into a malevolent creature of the night and emotionally and physically abuses you, makes you his blood whore against your will and sends you creepy love letters, you should still by all means lust after I mean love him because he is soooo hot and sexy and his tiny penis rocks your fucking world.4 For creating inextricable situations potentially possessing momentum for a great series had the dumb bitch of an author gone about it correctly but then having deux es machinas in the form of characters to immediately solve the problems so our Mary Sue and Gary Stu shitheads can have plenty of time to snag each other some.5 Destroying potential of developed, lovable characters and the plot all for catering to stupid hormonal, sexually deprived virgins who probably use an icicle to masturbate over fictional characters just to get some bucks even if it means losing your dignity while you re at it Also, if you do happen to have a copy of this book, I suggest that you burn it because it makes a great Christmas fireplace Or just recycle it Be a friend to the environment thumbs up I hated the conclusion to the series, knowing that it would go downhill from Shadow Kiss onwards Blood Promise was a filler likewise Spirit Bound, both books were just two halves of one big bullshit Last Sacrifice was on a whole new level of shit for me predictable plotline I could have just read shit fan fiction and could not tell the difference between that and Last Sacrifice , vapid heroines, tedious mind numbing romance that consisted of humping like rabbits 75% of the time and the other 25% pointless declarations of love and we witness Richelle Mead s stupid philosophical explanation on the romance of Rose and Dimitri It s great for checking your upchuck reflexes Mine were working fine I don t think I can gather together the entire plot to give you a coherent synopsis because reading Last Sacrifice meant I finally understood that the last sacrifice was my fucking brain cells, I do not want to endure that again Secondly there was so much bullshit and since I am such a kind, thoughtful person I wouldn t want to burden you with it But here s a short synopsis Rose is in prison where she should belong, the dumbass and her deux es machina of a dad comes along and tells her that in 2 weeks she could be dead if the trial goes wrong That perks my interest Because Richelle Mead seems to be a huge fan of unrealistic prison breaks, Rose s friends break her out through impossible means because of course Rose has unlimited amount of luck She Dimitri escape together it s so obvious that Tatiana s murder was so they could get together and mend their shagromance During this escape, all she can do is drool over his butt while telling herself she isn t over him and may I say she does a convincing job Not Rose jizzes her pants over Dimitri When does she not Then Sydney is blackmailed by Abe to look after Rose and Dimitri and make sure they keep hidden until Abe Co prove Rose s innocence What was honestly the fucking point of the prison break Weren t they trying to do that in the first place Meanwhile, Lissa is nominated as a candidate for Queen of the Moroi and faces physical emotional mental tests in order to show she is capable of being Queen Along with that, her, Christian and Adrian play Sherlock Holmes and Watson and try to find out who the killer is Victor and Robert invade Rose s dream, and for some fucking reason she trusts them into telling them about where she is and the Last Dragomir even though Victor is the one who forced her to be almost raped by Dimitri and tortured her best friend I couldn t think of a better person, could you So now that they are BBFs and after they give each other friendship bracelets they team up to find Sonya Karp and turn her back into Moroi so she can tell them about who the bastard child of Eric Dragomir is They turn Sonya Karp Deux Es Machina No I lost count the unlimited Luck strikes again back into a Moroi and unsurprisingly it turns out that Jailbait Deux Es Machina I mean Jill is Lissa s half sister, is this supposed to be some sort of amazing, shocking revelation It turns out that Victor is the evil mastermind that he was always in the fucking books, and he kidnaps Jill, but then Rose comes in with her God Mode Sue powers and saves her and then kills Victor She feels bad for about 3 seconds and then proceeds to drool over Dimitri s cock Rose and Dimitri shag because it s the only drive in their pathetic relationship may I say that this is while she is still Adrian s girlfriend Oh but don t worry the cheating is A OK because she luuuurrrves Dimitri so fucking much that she just had to give into fucking his nonexistent brains out Also, Rose s aura glows like the fucking sun when she is acting like a whore Isn t this like 24 7 They then return to court with Jill and Rose hands her over to Moroi royals like a dog and then blurts that Eric Dragomir is a manwhore in front of the entire Moroi population thus humiliating her best friend who is supposed to be a candidate for Queen Lissa becomes Queen, Tasha is the killer, Dimitri is Christian s guardian even though he was just a Strigoi 3 weeks ago so Rose and him can shag and protect them at the same time, the bond goes away for like no fucking reason, Rose tears out Adrian s heart and then Rose rides Dimitri s dick into the sunset doing it whilst over a pile of bodies that sacrificed their asses so the fucktarded romance between Rose Dimitri can happen Rose, of course, feels no remorse at all and Dimitri being the retarded asshole justifies her actions, why not shove your head up her ass too, you fucker The inconsistency in the plot is incredibly repetitive first of all Dimitri has no side effects at all from subsequent to being a Strigoi It s only logical that he should, be a much darker being of himself than he should be or even being mentally unstable, am I rightNope Because he realises that Rose s hair is sooooo beautiful, luscious, soft, and silky with no ammonia honest to God, it sounded like a hair advert that he has a standing orgasm and becomes conscious of the fact that life is worth living for her hair Her hair made him realise that he missed acting like a child groomer by feeling her up and then acting like a complete shithead afterwards and now he wants to live that life again Are you fucking kidding me That doesn t prove fuck all that he loved her but he has a hair fetish Disgusting motherfucker.Also, how Richelle Mead made Rose cheating on Adrian seem like no big deal because Dimitri is her soul mate Oh really Because that totally justifies the fact that Adrian treated her as an equal, cared for her, gave her what she wanted and loved her will never match the incredible power of Dimitri s sex factor and how hot he is That was beyond cruel, especially to a character that I have grown to love right the way through the whole series, for Rose to get into bed with another man while she was with him, and then turn the tables to blame him for depending on her I m sorry, I ve never seen Adrian depend on her for anything during the course of this catastrophic plot so why Rose using this as an excuse She was a goldigging whore I m surprised she doesn t yet dress in cheapskate designer and have Chola brows with huge earrings End of story I cannot believe there are some idiots on here who seem to think that Rose is a strong female character when she uses her killer, curvy body and her whorishness sexuality to get what she wants She has neither intelligence nor the emotional strength to be a good heroine Also what made me sick was how Dimitri said that he liked , respected Adrian, could never take another man s woman yet for a guy who seems to have amazing self control he still fucked her I hope to God, Rose Dimitri gets HIV AIDS and herpes after this The son of a whore is a hypocrite and he is now exactly like his dad, to be honest I m not surprised that he turned out into what he is now a child grooming, perverted prick Cheating adultery are no way justifiable I don t give a flying rat s ass if you happen to meet your soul mate, it s still immoral so I don t understand why this daft author think she can get away with it considering your book is aimed at teenagers Also the digression of Tasha s character Tasha is supposed to be fierce, intelligent and strong yet we see her as a crazed, jealous bitch that loved Dimitri and tried to frame that goldigging slut through royal assassination because she couldn t stand the fact that she lost to a stupid, dumbass whore What the fuck Since when did her character do a U Turn or is Tasha a bi polar psychopath The Ozeras have already been condemned for Christian s parents actions they don t need a murder to top the fucking list Christian has been degraded for the whole Strigoi incident and this whole murder plotline was uncalled for and a nuisance, he shouldn t have to deal with another person s reputation on his shoulders and why, oh why, was her character beaten into a psychotic murderer of a character Lissa being Queen wasn t at all predictable sarcasm Of course, you d expect her to pass all the tests and then become Queen The only reason why she is Queen is so Rose and Dimitri can get away with the bullshit that they get up to Hell, you know what this means, rightRose and Dimitri can shag on Tatiana s grave or Dimitri could even piss from the highest tower in court, and those motherfuckers would get away with it because Queen Lissa would back them up as only she is allowed to pass judgement There was not enough of Christian Adrian in this book I loved the bromance and the banter between these two, which seemed to develop into a warm friendship It was the only redeeming part of the book other than Christian and Lissa s relationship The snarky comments were amusing and did lighten my stormy mood for the duration of the book, and it convinced me to think that Adrian Christian would be one amazing duo and I d rather have the spinoffs be about their adventures than some boring ass bitch like Jill Christian and Lissa are my only favourite canon pairing right now honestly I love how they strengthened each other to be a better person, and his support for her during the time she was doing her tests was so endearing What made me sad is that this healthy, balanced relationship which wasn t about motherfucking lust charms rape is like it and cabin sex awesomeness was overshadowed largely by two assholes who honestly should look into getting jobs in the Dhampir porn industry seeing as Rose is halfway there They had completely opposite characteristics, they initially clashed but they had something called development, they didn t let the other put them down and solved their issues in a sensible way See That is a fucking relationship Not a one night stand with a perverted child groomer whose hobbies consist of reading cowboy novels, and sessions involving lotion, tissue and never ending lonely nights Well, he has Rose now, so the curse of continuous masturbation has finally been broken Good for him, that big slut sassy gay friend reference Adrian I loved him in this and glad that he didn t let Rose walk all over likewise Spirit Bound, he called out on her shit and said that she was a goldigging skank who didn t give a flying fuck about anyone else but her Russian sex master He doesn t and didn t deserve Rose at all, and I m hoping he gets together with some vodka and some Las Vegas showgirls to show him a good time I wished he had gotten together with Avery, they were a gorgeous couple back in Blood Promise, but obviously Richelle Mead is a sadistic bitch who doesn t like seeing anyone but dumb bitches and assholes happy Adrian has developed a lot as a character, so than the main two as well as some other secondary characters, he was entertaining and charming and I had hoped he d get his happy ending just not with Jailbait and Sydney but he got the short end of the fucking stick The stick was probably up Dimitri s ass anyway Dimitri should be in prison for being such a fugly grenade who spends his time getting pubescent ass and ruining dusters for the rest of us Belikov, I think you ve heard about my burning hatred for him and I don t think I can ever complain about him enough in short he is an exotic child molester who changes his personality faster than Rose rides people s dicks who ruined Russia for me Honestly His ass should get back to soviet Russia where women don t take that shit from him Or, you know, Stalin kicks his fucking ass I ve never wanted to snap someone s dick off and shoved it up someone s ass, and this character is fictional I m tired of his stupid repetitive chat up lines you are so beautiful it hurts me and because you are a na ve attention whore I just say so I can get some pussy LOL he should be working for Hallmarks or some other crappy card making company so half witted romantics can fall for his lines and the sex scenes sucked donkey dick I could write a better sex scene and I m a virgin hell the Edward and Bella pillow biting sex scene in Breaking Dawn was porn compared to the sex Rose and Dimitri have Tatiana Ambrose turned me on than they ever could Jill was a boring, basic ass bitch who is a plot device so Lissa can be queen therefore shag a thon 10 is able to happen It was pretty obvious that she was going to be Lissa s sister because you can t have her kissing asses all day long, you have to make her seem important while kissing ass Sydney I don t mind her character but she isn t Jesus to me but the way Rose left her to rot in prison and then didn t even think twice about her angered the crap out of me Same with Eddie who was the only Dhampir I liked throughout the entire series he had brains and he was committed for calling Rose out on his shit yet he met a horrible end I cannot stand it when such amazing characters such as him have an undeserved ending yet the skank ass bitch lives in luxury Rose is just a fucking cum dumpster for Dimitri she is a skank ass monkey fucking whore who deserves to cut with a chainsaw and a blunt axe How is she living She is too fucking stupid to live and she should have just died in that fucking car accident instead of Lissa s family She is a shit guardian her vocabulary does not surpass bad ass and God , she should have been sent off to a bloodwhore commune because that s what she should have graduated as the WHORE OF MONTANA.The pacing was horrible and the book was set out badly, I don t know if Richelle Mead actually has editors or baboons scratching their asses over her manuscripts There was no element of surprise, or suspense or anything exciting at all, I was excited finishing the fucking book It was just shit and should be thrown into a fire So everyone, save your gas bills by burning copies of Last Sacrifice D
