Who knew that Shadow Kiss, the third Vampire Academy novel, was going to be the zenith of this series? I know there are two more novels to go but I am done. Blood Promise broke me. It was that terrible. I nearly stopped reading it so many times. I can't go on with my sanity in check if I continued.

Blood Promise tells Rose's excruciating boring story in Russia. She uses her bond with Lissa to show the latter's equally boring story at St. Vladimir's. Rose has always been very arrogant but strong. In this novel, she was so arrogant, whiny, needy, and weak. She was killing me with excessive flashbacks to life with Dimitri. They were so boring. Lissa's story also served no purpose except to show that Lissa cannot survive without Rose watching her back because nobody could see that she was blantanly acting different.

How is it possible for Dimitri to still be as boring as watching paint dry when he is a Strigoi? How? How did he not develop a personality?

Another thing, if Victor knew about another spirit user, why not go to him than come up with such an elaborate plot during the first Vampire Academy novel? Maybe that'll be answered in Spirit Bound but I won't be reading that. ( )

This one kind of drug in parts but I wouldn't let it keep you from the rest of the series. ( )

Blood Promise was just as great as the previous books. I had to admire Rose's resolve to travel to another country to find Dimitri and free him from his current state; you can tell that she battled with it and it was the hardest thing she's ever had to do. I'm glad for Rose and Lissa's bond, since we were able to visit Lissa and see what kinds of troubles she was dealing with in Rose's absence. I loved the new characters in this story, including Dimitri's family, Sydney, Avery, and of course Abe. As always, we learned some new and potentially great things regarding spirit, and it sounds like Rose is looking to put them to use on Dimitri in the next book.

Jeez, I was a mess all through the second half of this book, but the ending made me smile. Excited to start the next book! ( )

Still reeling over Dimitri's awakening as a Stigoi, Rose sets off to Russia to find and kill her love, Dimitri. Torn between her bond with Lissa and knowing that the Dimitri Rose knows would never want to live the life of a Striloi, she hunts hi. Down to kill him. She finds him and is held captive by him for weeks until she finally manages to escape. ( )

I have to say that the book was amazing and that i read many reviews and opions for the book online and that many people felt that it left them wanting more. and not only that their left with so many questions and we all know they will be answered in the next book.
