REVIEW: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

They come first.

My vision was growing dimmer, the blackness and ghosts closing in. I swore it was like I could hear Robert whispering in my ear: The world of the dead won't give you up a second time. Just before the light completely vanished, I saw Dimitri's face join Lissa's. I wanted to smile. I decided then that if the two people I loved most were safe, I could leave this world.

The dead could finally have me.

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 guardians to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose - for a crime she didn't even commit. She's in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She'll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose's life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back...and this 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 #1 bestselling Vampire Academy series.

When I finally read Last Sacrifice, it had been way too long since the last time I'd picked up a book in the Vampire Academy series, and I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to follow much of the events since it had been so long and I remembered that the plot had gotten especially complicated in the previous novel, but I was able to jump right back in without a hitch. Yay!

Rose and Dimitri are one of my favorite couples ever, and I really loved getting back into their relationship, but I was also worried that one of my favorite characters in the series, Adrian, would end up getting neglected or worse. I won't say what happened with all of that drama, except that I was really satisfied with what happened and Mead managed to stay true to the characters really well.

I was really happy with how the series ended, but my reading of the book was somewhat tarnished by the fact that it was an ending to one of the series that really got me into the Paranormal YA genre. Although I'm super sad to see VA go, I have read and enjoyed the first book in the spinoff series--review coming soon--and I can't wait to see what more Mead has to offer in the future, especially since she's ended so many series lately.
