Vampire Academy: Shadow Kiss / Richelle Mead

Summary - Is Rose's fate to kill the person she loves most? It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason's death, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret . . . .She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.

Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever.

Review - This will be short:

Positives - Rose being selfish in a good way in terms of Dimitri's destiny, Christian and Rose encounters, Rose's Mum, Dimitri, Eddie and his new found confidence. Strigoi attack. Eddie ghost. Explanation of how Lissa's powers affect Rose. Bow-chica-wow-wow. Lissa and Rose confrontation of the last few pages - hurrah.

Negatives - Adrian - can't stand him, Mana - blech, Lissa - ugh. The palace -mnah.

Determination - I will read fourth book but better stay on track.
