Review of Blood Promise by Richelle Mead
So the first thing I have to talk about is how gutsy Richelle Mead is to do what she did at the end of Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy #3). I'm in awe and very proud that she'd not go along the line that the fans wanted her to and instead add a twist so huge to the story that it left everyone (well at least me) breathless.
That being said Rose tries to right that wrong for us. Oh fearless and brave Rose always running into battle to save the day or in this case, Dimitri's integrity. Along her mission she meets some of Dimitri's family, which I must say that I completely adore them and want to adopt them as my family (even the crazy grandmother).
While this novel was jammed packed with action, adventure and lust I didn't feel like I connected to the characters as much as I usually do. Don't get me wrong my eyes were glued to the pages and it was hard to stop reading to take breaks and eat, but I just craved a little more out of the novel.
Overall I fascinating novel and a great addition to an amazing series.
