We're Doing the Book Blogger Hop

It's that time of the week again plus one day as I normally write this on a Friday and it's Saturday today.

"Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!"

In tradition of last week's Question about what book you were reading and since I recieved lots of comments about one of the books - for all my readers and followers who are fans of the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead , Here is my review for Last Sacrifice.

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, Book 6)

Review : Last Sacrifice - Vampire Academy #6 - Richelle Mead - Dec 2010

At the end of Book #5 Spirit Bound, we heard about the death of Queen Tatiana and saw Guardian Rose Hathaway being put away for her death. Now with the funeral processions happening, they have moved Rose's trial which all think she is guilty for to two weeks. Two weeks before she learns her fate as either proclaimed her innocence that we all know she is or they still find her guilty and execute her. During Tatiana's procession, it seems Rose's friends and family see this as the perfect opportunity to stage Rose's escape which will also give them more time to find out the identity of the real killer. The escape sees Rose on a journey with Dimitri and their Alchemist friend Sydney. The journey takes them first to a "safe place" but of course Rose has other plans - she was told that Lissa had a secret half-sibling . Rose soons teams up with arch-enemy and brother Victor and Robert to find Strigoi and ex-teacher Sonya Karp who was turned like Dimitri and as Lissa saved Dimitri ,we are about to witness the turning of Sonya with the help of Spirit User Robert. Along the journey, we also sense a lot of romantic feelings from all sorts of guys and the one girl stuck in the middle -Rose as she has to fight off a wedding proposal , and then decide who her dream guy and soul mate is - her current boyfriend Moroi Royalty Adrian or Dhampir Dimitri whom her heart has alway belonged to ? .

Find out in Last Sacrifice in which we see every single character make a sacrifice which will result in the consequences affecting their futures - some for good and others for bad ? Which side will your sacrifice lead you and even more is your sacrifice for you or somebody else ?
An awesome way to finish off the Vampire Academy Series and who knows in the next few years we may see it transferred to the big screen.

What I Did Next with this review , is I took the movie idea a step further and decided on my Cast List. Check out the Cast List on http://thephantomparagrapher.blogspot.com/2011/02/what-if-vampire-academy-was-movie.html



  1. Just hopping through. I haven't read any of the VA series yet, so unfortunately I had to skip over your review of #6. However, I've gotta say you've got some nice hunks for your casting picks! I've always had a soft spot for the lean and lanky geek look, so Milo is a personal fave.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. @Vicki - Ive been in love with Milo ever since he played Jesse on Gilmore Girls and of course Channing Tatum - hmmmm :)
