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 countBut only one victim matters Dimitri Belikov Rose must now choose one of two very different paths honoring her life s vow to protect Lissa her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves She ll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved Now, with everything at stake and worlds away from St Vladimir s and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love Readers who fell in love with Rose, Lissa, and Dimitri won t want to miss Blood Promise, the much anticipated, epic fourth novel in Richelle Mead s enthralling Vampire Academy series 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 bookit s in my soul Don t expect one of my normal polished reviews I just wanted to finally 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 bookit s in my soul Don t expect one of my normal polished reviews I just wanted to finally put some random thoughts down about one of my all time favorite books.So why was a middle of the series book my favorite Two words Primal Dimitri I can t honestly sayoutside of spoiler tags If you haven t read up through at least book 3, you absolutely don t want to look or you ll have the biggest plot surprise spoiled, and this is one thing you really don t want to have spoiled Someone spoiled it for me and I missed out on getting to experience the crazy shock of book 3 s ending view spoiler Okay, so I knowbig bad evil Dimitri is technically not romantic, not cute, not sane Run away from the scary killer man, blah, blah, blah But go with me on this I loved Dimitri s character pre transformation He was honorable, loyal, strong, brave, etc etc etc But he was tormented by his good character He STRUGGLED with wanting Rose He WANTED to do the right thing and fought his desires as much as he could It was part of what made him such an admiral person I felt like he was able to look past Rose s age because she wasof a peer to him than a student Anyway, I m not going to debate whether or not he should have even gone there because I know some people disapproved with good reason So when he was turned and he lost part of himself, it was intriguing to watch his honor get kicked to the side in favor of satisfying raw need He didn t fully understand why he wanted Rose, he just knew that she was what he wanted and he went for it In any other book, I would have been flying the abuse is wrong flagbut in this book, I relished the thought of watching such a carefully crafted Guardian throw it all away and take what he wanted His complete character change worked because it was such a contrast to who he really was as a person It felt like some of his subconscious desires that had been there all along were made manifest in his new Strigoi persona hide spoiler Anyway, I ve been thinking about this bookandbecause of the upcoming Rose Dimitri in Russia story that will be released shortly I can t wait for this because I felt like it was the one part of book 4 which we didn t get to see closure on Dear Dimka,If it doesn t work out with Rose, you have my number Call me Love,A person who will still be thinking about you after everyone else has moved on to the next flavor of the week 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 wordsOnce again, I absolutely loved it It s amazing I will admit I cried againWe 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

loved it It s amazing I will admit I cried again 1 Guys, it s just me or I felt Dimitripassionate than his normal self I know that Strigoi don t have feelings but I don t know I loved that version of Dimitri too That scene on the bridge, it broke my heartYou forgot another lesson Never turn your back until you know your enemy is dead Looks like we ll have to go over the lesson again the next time I see you which will be soon.Love, DWe are really thankful that she had forgot that lesson 2 Avery That bitch She wanted to kill Lissa and then heal her back so that Lissa would be shadow kissed and bonded to Avery Two shadow kissed weren t enough Reed and Simon , she wanted Lissa too She also wanted Adrian How dare she My baby with her With all that spirit she used, it make her go crazy 3 Why Christian I understand Lissa kissed Aaron but it wasn t her fault Avery used compulsion to make Lissa look crazy in case Avery couldn t bring her back to life So, I think Lissa and Christian should be back together Please 4 I loved Dimitri s family They welcome her and especially Olena treats Rose as her own daughter I loved his grandmother Yeva She is amazing and a little bit creepy 5 Sydney is amazing P.S The Red Hurricane is what I named the car P.P.S Just because I like you, it doesn t mean I still don t think you re an evil creature of the night You are 6 Finally, we meet another shadow kissed Mark I love Mark and Oksana They are amazing They give us the most important information A spirit user they knew named Robert claimed that he restored a Strigoi Also, Robert is Victor s brotherVictor was serving a life sentence no bribe could matter to him any But one thing could, I realized Freedom And there was only one way to achieve that We were going to have to break Victor Dashkov out of prisonWe will see how that goes 7 I feel so sad Rose agrees to date Adrian not that I blame her but she is going to hurt my babyYou wouldn t understand anything that isn t drinking, smoking, or womanizing He shook his head You re the only one I want, RoseIt s just me or I loved that voicemailI know how devastated you must be to miss me, but leave a message, and I ll try to ease your agony8 Of course, I loved Abe How can I not He is awesomeIf he wants to tell you, he ll tell you End of story, Rose Besides, you certainly keep your share of secrets too You two have a lot in

even9 Conversation between Rose and SydneyI miss him so much I m sorry, she said Will it ever get better The question seemed to catch her by surprise II don t know Have you ever been in love She shook her head NoI was like You will be soon,Sydney With an evil creature of the night 10I d said it before and meant it Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass 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

has only her own thoughts about Dimitri to ponder.And boy does she ponder Fortunately she does meet other heroes and villains along the way, so it s not constantly about the beautiful memories she shares with Dimitri or the ways in which she will have to end him Regardless, do expectintrospection than action The second part of the book when she sees Dimitri again is three times better than the first, seeing that it s the moment we d all been waiting for and the events areintense This means that, in general, this is much slower than the previous three books Personally, I was not surprised by it and became used to hearing Rose miss Dimitri and wonder about the relationship that could have been, but I certainly do admit that I cried FINALLY when Rose finally found the love of her life It s true that Richelle Mead could have puteffort into this one, since at least twice she is offered answers on a silver platter and Rose actually says this is too good to be true and that something is up not that much is up That should not have happened But here s the thing This book is necessary If Ms Mead had never turned Dimitri into a Strigoi, we would be having a completely different sequel, and perhaps that would have been preferred by many, but Dimitri did become a Strigoi, so we did need this sequel whether it worked for you or not Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin Shadow

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 anydetail 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 written, but the fact that Richelle Mead didn t put much work into it is obvious.Let me start with the positives however Upon finishing the book I am slightly less devastated than after reading Shadow Kiss, so here is an improvement Some action sequences are pretty good Unfortunately, that s about it for the good stuff.On the negative side, the book really suffers from separation of Rose and Lissa In this book Mead attempts to have two story lines going simultaneously Lissa s and Rose s, but neither of them is particularly exciting Plus, because the series is written from Rose s POV, the difficulty of relaying Lissa s story is solved by utilizing Rose s spirit bond ability to get into Lissa s thoughts What doesn t work however is that somehow Rose can not only see what s going on with Lissa at the moment, but she can also rewind her experiences and thoughts This seems like a pretty poor plot device in my opinion Plus, Lissa s story is rather lame and takes away too much from the final altercation between Rose and Dimitri the best part of the book.The familiar characters we met in first 3 books Christian, Mia, Eddie, even Victor Dashkov are amiss Instead we are introduced to an array of new characters both in U.S and Russia who don t really serve much of a purpose for the main story line, rather they are created to fill in pages, and it is very apparent.Mead also relies very heavily on flashbacks and memories of Dimitri that were never mentioned in previous books and at some point I started wondering, do I really want to know this much about Dimitri I already love him and adding info like he bakes bread for himself because he loves it so much is not really necessary, in fact it almost kills the mystery around his persona.What else The story drags in some parts, the spirit battle is too confusing, quite a few inconsistencies Overall, just a lazily written book IMO.I think when the series is finished and we look back at Blood Promise we will think that this book could have been easily omitted Maybe I will feel differently about Blood Promise when I re read it, but as this point I am rather saddened by it
