!SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ THIS SUMMARY IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE REST OF THE SERIES BUT INTEND TO.
Bound by love, but sworn to kill…
The world thought Dimitri was dead. And to a certain extent, he was. But I hadn’t been able to forget a conversation he and I had once had. We’d both agreed that we’d rather be dead - truly dead - than walk the world as Strigoi. It was time to honour our words.
Guardian Rose Hathaway’s life will ever be the same. The recent attack on St. Vladimir’s Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose’s neck; a mark that says she’s killed far too many Strigoi to count.
But only one victim matters…Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honouring her life’s vow to protect Lissa - her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess - or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She’ll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?
Now, with everything at stake - and worlds away from St. Vladimir’s Academy and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend - can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?
Readers who fell in love with Rose, Lissa, and Dimitri won’t want to miss Blood Promise, the much-anticipated, epic fourth novel in Richelle Mead’s enthralling Vampire Academy series.
I’ve already read this and all I can say is !!!!.
‘You have an enemy, Dr Brennan. It is in your interest to learn who placed that call.’
A routine case turns sinister when Dr Temperance Brennan is accused of mishandling the autopsy of a missing heiress. Someone has made an incriminating accusation that she missed or concealed crucial evidence. Before Tempe can get to the one man with information, he turns up dead.
The heiress isn’t the only elderly female to have appeared on Tempe’s gurney recently. Back in Montreal, three more women have died, their bodies brutally discarded. Tempe is convinced there’s a link between their deaths and that of the heiress. But what - or who - connects them?
Tempe struggles with the clues, but nothing adds up. Has she made a grave error or is some unknown for sabotaging her? It soon becomes frighteningly clear. It’s not simply Tempe’s career at risk. Her life is at stake too.
I love Kathy Reichs’s books. There aren’t many adult authors - let alone crime authors - that I read religiously, but she is one of them.
Even though he was sitting a couple of feet away from me, his black suit blended in completely with the shadows. Only his hair gave him away. The white-blond colour glowed in the dark room. It was the boy from the cemetery…
When Abbey’s best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone in the town assumes that she is dead. Everyone, that is, except Abbey.
Struggling to come to terms with Kristen’s disappearance and desperately seeking some answers, Abbey finds herself drawn more and more to the mysterious - and drop-dead gorgeous - Caspian, who keeps reappearing in her life. But Caspian has secrets of his own, and when Abbey uncovers the frightening truth about him, she starts to question not only their emerging love but also her own sanity…
Thanks to Simon and Schuster for this. I’m so excited to read it, it sounds fantastic.
