"Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between them." (Summary from

Richelle Mead's, Last Sacrifice, is the final installment of the Vampire Academy series in Rose's perspective. The book picks up where Spirit Bound ended. Rose is in prison for the murder of Queen Tatiana. Rose escapes prison and is on the run from her fellow guardians while she tries to prove her innocence and find Lisa's illegitimate sibiling. Rose has matured and changed greatly throughout the series, but especially in this installment. Rose is a strong, sarcastic, and witty character that provides comic relief to the story. 

Last Sacrifice is suspensful and shocking from beginning to end. All of the characters from the past books have returned as well. Rose and Lissa are separated from one another for a great deal of the book, but their bond still keeps them connected. When Rose goes inside Lissa's head, the reader is able to see what the others characters are doing. While on her mission, Rose eventually finds herself in a triangle with Dimitri and Adrian, and must figure out who she has true feelings for. 

I loved Last Sacrifice,and thought it was a great ending to the series. Richelle Mead is an extraordinary writer who creates a exciting world, as well as fun and strong characters. Rose Hathaway is one of my favorite fictional characters, because she is tough but vulnerable at times, and her sense of humor lightens up the dark situations in the story. The character of Lissa greatly matures in this story and learns that she didn't need to rely on Rose so much. One of my favorite parts of the series was the bond between Rose and Lissa, and when Rose would go inside Lissa's head. I was happy to see past characters return again, such as Sydney. The plot was shocking with many twists until the end and was not what I expected. Last Sacrifice was a great ending to Rose's story and I will be looking forward to the spin-off series.

  1. OMG!! I loved this book!!!! It's impossible for me to have a favourite book ( there are too many I like) but last sacrifice would definitely be in the top 10! I loved the plot and rose is a witty, can-think-on-her-feet, ass-kicking and overall AWESOME heroine. Richelle mead ensured there was never a dull moment and an unimaginable ending with a climatic conclusion. My pulse raced throughout the book and when i finally closed the back cover, i felt a sense of satisfaction. it was a bit sad though when (SPOILER ALERT)the bond shattered and roses breakup with adrian but geting together with dimitri and lissas coronation made up for it. i would defintely give this book a 6 out of 5 stars!
