Vampire Academy: Blood Promise  

Has anyone here read this book/series? I just finished and may I say.... BEST YOUNG ADULT VAMPIRE SERIES I HAVE EVER READ.

Also, I'm desperate to discuss. Anyone? Anyone?

I finally finished Blood Promise last night and maybe it was the build up of waiting to read it (ha, I kept putting it off due to conflicting reviews), but I was underwhelmed. When I finished Shadow Kiss a few months ago I was surprised that there would be three more books following - it felt like things were wrapping up and I worried the books would be filler until the end. That's what this one felt like. :/

I've always said that I would give Richelle Mead major praise if she actually killed Dimitri off, so I'm a little miffed by the possibility that there's a way to change him back from being Strigoi. That feels like such an easy way out to me, lol. I'm sure she could make me enjoy it but eh... I'm sure it won't be an easy road getting there but I want more surprise.

At this point I want: 1) Dimitri to die so Rose and Adrian can get it on (I looove Adrian) or 2) Rose to turn Strigoi. LMFAO.

Having gone straight from Shadow-Kissed to Blood Promise, without even KNOWING about the future of the series.... I wasn't too disappointed. I thought some parts were drawn out and sort of like... "why is this here?" Part of me secretly hoped there would be a way to bring Dimitri back but really, if there were a legit way, that would undo this entire world she has created. I think her publishers are just trying to ride it out, ya know? Which sucks but hey, I LOVE ADRIAN TOO. and I want him and Rose to get their time ♥ I have no doubt they will, honestly. As for Rose turning Strigoi.... LMAO indeed. That would be like... IDK. That would be like this book never happened ;)

I own the first 2 books and I tried reading the first one a few months ago, but I put it down again. I want to try again, but I have so many books (and I can't stop buying new ones), and I always have something else I want to read first.

Ok I just finished reading book 1, 3 and now 4 (i thought thought that frost bite was book 3) and I was disappointed that they made Dimitri a Strigoi, not that I thought that could live happily ever after either. But in, Blood Promise, I didn't like how she stay with him and was having battle with her decisions on what to do. But I loved how she got to know his family and her growing feeling toward Adrian. It would be nice if she were able to get over Dimitri, but she hasn't clearly and give Adrian a chance. All in all I really like this series and I can't wait for the new one out in May.
