My Thoughts: If you liked the first book, Vampire Academy, you will LOVE this one! This book has more of everything - more danger, more emotions, more romance, more friendship, more suspense and more adventure. This book is absolutely amazing!
As always, Richelle Mead's characters are great and well-developed, I relly feel for all of them. In this book we got introduced to a new character; Lissa's cousin Adrian.
Adrian is interested both in Rose, and in Lissa's abilities, but is he good or bad?
Adrian is cocky, sarcastic and selfish, but yet I liked him!
Then we have Mason. Oh sweet, poor little Mason. Why did you do that? Mason is a really sweet guy and a great friend, and he's really into Rose. To prove himself for Rose he does something really stupid and foolhardy that puts both himself and other people in grave danger...
Rating 5,5 of 5 (Yes - it was that great!)
