Synopsis: How far will Rose go to keep her promise?
The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri.
He’d rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?
My Thoughts: I love this series more and more with each new book! I was concerned about Blood Promise because I knew in this book that Rose would be off on her own. I was so happy to find out that she was rarely by herself for too long (my attention span is really short when I have to read about one isolated character for a long time).
Rose's journey had so many twist and turns, from the first companion she met, to where she ended up in Russia (more like who she ended up with). Rose went through a lot in the book, especially near the end. At one point, I was uncertain whether or not she would carry out the goal she'd set when she first left the academy.
As far as the parts that weren't about her journey, I thought it was great that Mead included a lot of what was going on back at the academy. It was interesting to see what was happening with Lissa and her friends (or "friends")without Rosa. I'm so excited that Spirit Bound is already out because Blood Promise was crazy good and left on a surprising note (well.. not that surprising).
