Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)

Rose Hathaway's life will never be the same. The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters ... Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to prote...

    I’ll tell you what, the first three books in the series were wonderland stories compared to this one right here. Why? Because it is painful to read about a heroine who is separated from her love interest, aka her one true love that should never have turned into a Strigoi in the first place. (Side note: this is why I did not enjoy the second Twilight book at all.)I hope this will not come as a shock or spoiler if I tell you that these two charac...

    "Shadow Kiss" left us with Rose on the way to find and kill her beloved Dimitri who had fallen during a fight with Strigoi. "Blood Promise" picks up where Rose is in Moscow, looking for traces of Dimitri. Needless to say, she finds him, but I will not go into any more detail to avoid spoilers. I hate to say it, but I am fairly disappointment by this book. In my opinion, it is so far the weakest in the series. It is by no means the worst book ever...

    “We need to be together.""Why?" I asked softly. The word was carried away on the wind, but he heard."Because I want you."I gave him a sad smile, wondering if we'd meet again in the land of the dead. "Wrong answer," I told him.I let go. I look him in the eye. "I will always love you.” “That’s what I was supposed to say. . . .” he gasped out. Those were his last words." Once again, I absolutely loved it! It's amazing!! I will admit I crie...

    The third book of the vampire academy series left all of us hanging. All of us wanting more. & all of us with the same question, what happened to dimitri?! Blood promise is everything i could have hoped for. It made me cry. And laugh. And sometimes both. It threw our hope away, then brought it back at the last moment. It was truly a great book. Rose meets her father, unknowingly at first. We actually see emotion from her mother. We see Adrians tr...

    *3.5 Stars*The main reason I'm rating this one lower than the previous three? The first 300 pages were BORING. (-1 star) This book could almost have started on page 300 and still have been great. I understand the need for back story, but I was frustrated and annoyed at how much I had to slog through to get to the main story of the book. Setting the stage is one thing, dragging things out to artificially create tension and mood is another. I round...

    First half of the book: Rose has to go a hard way full of stones and death and pain. She meets Sydney and Dimitri's family and gets to know his world. Rose is ready to do anything to find and to kill him. And finally, she finds him...Second half of the book: Dimitri as a Strigoi. A very very evil version of Dimitri. A passionated one, but still evil. He is brutal, he is merciless. He is completely different from the Dimitri we know. And the relat...

    The time has come. It doesn't matter that I read this book forever and a day ago. Blood Promise deserves a review - one that I wrongfully neglected to give at the time of finishing. The 5 star rating at the top says nothing about why I loved this book back then, nor does it say why I still think about this story even now. I doubt I'll ever go back and write reviews for the rest of the series but this book...it's in my soul. Don't expect one of my...

    4.5/5This book was really good! I'm still trying to get over the major twist at the ending which I was kind of expecting but I didn't know that it would be that big.The one thing that I didn't like with this book was that Lissa was kind of "whiny." In Rose's views from her eyes, we were able to see what was going on back at St. Vladimir Academy. I was excited to read this since it might had some more action, which it did, but it wasn't enough to ...

    4.5 Keeping Promises “Yet, it had been Dimitri’s gentleness and thoughtfulness mixed with that deadliness that made him so wonderful. The same hands that wielded stakes with such precision would carefully brush the hair out of my face. The eyes that could astutely spot any danger in the area would regard me wonderingly and worshipfully, like I was the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world.”I know a lot of people thought this was the...

    This was very interesting and heart-breaking. Meeting Dimitri's family was a unique experience. I really feel like Rose developed a lot as a character and she's definitely more likable now than she was in the beginning,however,unfortunately,Lisa is getting on my nerves a little bit. What's been annoying in this book is that Lisa seems more angry at Rose for leaving her than being actually worried for Rose. I mean,for God's sake, Rose has her own ...

    So 1st I have to say that I love Mead. But this book was only OK to Good for me which I guess was a disappointment. I think she could have & has done much better. To summarize, I didn't feel as emotionally connected to the characters & I expected to be, esp after the last book. But also - I think structurally, the book was too condensed & didn't have to be.OK so here I go, SPOILERS for VA #4 - BLOOD PROMISE BELOW:I felt there was far too much rec...

    I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass. The first half of the book was a bit slow but then the story really did pick up. It was really entertaining but in my opinion, most of the characters were so annoying. I was really frustrated at times. Rosa, Lissa, and Dimitri were all getting on my nerves. That being said, I enjoyed the new characters that were introduced and I can't wait to read more about the...

    If I had to give the first 3/4 of this book a review, I would have given it two stars at the most.The plot was painfully, agonizingly slow with many, many unnecessary characters and plotlines that just bugged the hell out of me. I found myself skipping large portions of text to get to anything worth reading.The last quarter of this book however, earned that last two stars. It was intense, amazing, beautiful. I almost cried. I wanted to cry. What ...

    Actual Rating:4.5/5Wow, can't believe I read about 400 pages today! I couldn't put this book down, and it's pretty long so that's saying something!This book was a real roller coaster! As soon as Rose saw Adrian at the airport near the end of the book, the rest of the novel was just so beautiful!!! All these relationships coming back together, I seriously think that was my fav part of the book.Basically:I love Adrian so much, like, so much Rose is...

    I stumbled over Mead's Vampire Academy series more or less by accident, however I'm glad I did! these novels are a great piece of fiction (even though, starting to reach my thirties, I'm too old for them really. As oppose to other young adult novels and novels in this genre, they contain quite complex characters, who are dynamic and continue to develop through out the series. They are fast paced and Mead, obviously a good story-teller, creats an ...

    Three words; i'm just going to do one this time. Amazing.I love this series. Plain and simple. I've been a fan since the beginning and I can't helped but get sucked in every time. This is my favorite vampire series. Heck, it's one of my most favorites, vampire or not.The plot is fantastic, action packed, twists and turns galore. The characters are right on, they continue to grow and develop, become even more dimensional as the series continues. T...

    El libro anterior de la saga dejó el nivel muy alto y mía expectativas por las nubes. Y por supuesto que ste libro fue increíble, siento que la saga se pone cada vez mas interesante, me he encontrado un montón de sorpresas a través de la historia y los libros solo prometen mejorar.Rose es uno de mis personajes femeninos favoritos y en este libro continuó demostrando esa fuerza y esa terquedad que tanto me enamoran de ella. Por otro lado deb...

You're welcome.Okay, I would like to tell you the story of my trip to drive from Texas to Florida for vacation a couple of years ago.

    3.5 stars. “He'd always understood me, and part of what we'd worked on was how to temper that impulsive need to run into danger with reason and calculation. I had a feeling no one else in this world would ever understand me like he did.” First half of the book is the worst one in the series so far, but the second half is the best one in the series so far. As you will see in the further paragraphs, this book has me conflicted. On one side, it...

    This book was full of ups and downs. I cried, I laughed, I was shocked... I had mixed feelings in some point while reading this, but I couldn't stop reading! I just had to know what'll happen. Like the prequels, this gets full 5 stars. Now some SPOILERS.(view spoiler)[ It was so annoying that everytime Strigoi attacked, I was thinking "Oh my god, is that Dimitri?" And when he locked her in that room... I don't know. It was so confusing! They were...
