Talk about an emotional roller coaster. When I first read Vampire Academy I did not expect the series to take this kind of turn. I did not expect it to be this heart wrenching.
Richelle Mead is cruel...making me fall in love with these characters and then shaking their lives up in a not so nice way. And right when I thought I was okay with what was happening, Richelle goes and mixes it all up again.
I literally have no idea where this story is headed right now. I have come up with many different turns it could take, but I am sure they are all wrong and I will be left baffled....again.
I do not want to say too much about what has happened because I don't want to spoil the series for anyone else. So I will just say this book made me cry. A lot. There, I admitted it. Especially the last 100 pages. I probably looked like such a baby sitting on my bed at 1 in the morning crying over this book. But read the series and tell me if by this point you haven't shed some tears.
Generally, I like to space out books in a series. Put a 3 or 4 book buffer between them just to let each book ruminate. That usually works really well. This time it's killing me. It has taken an act of God to stop me from going to the bookstore to buy the last two.
As I sit here on my chair I can see all of the books on my bookshelf that I have been dying to read and I know I need to get to. Not to mention all the ebooks on my Kindle, and all the books I have on my Adobe Reader to read on my computer. I really should not be thinking about buying any other books right now.
But I promise you, this weekend I will be going to the bookstore and buying Spirit Bound AND Last Sacrifice. I have to know what happens to Dimitri, Rose, and Adrian.
