Extra Info: Shadow Kiss is the third book in the Vampire Academy series.
Summary (From Amazon): 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...
Wdebo's Review: Oh wow, it has been a long time since I read Frostbite (around 7 months now) so...yeah, I hate reading a sequal like a long time after reading the first book...it just makes them harder to get into...well, I'll do my best...
When I first started reading Shadow Kiss, I was like...oh no this is going to be hard to go into...and as I began to read the first few pages I thought, man, this book is going downhill, I think I might even like Frostbite more then this. But as I got back into the academy, an old familiarity started to wash over me and I started to get more and more hooked on the story. Until the middle, when I just couldn't put it down.
This book added everything, romance, action and, of course, total girl power! And what else did it have...oh yeah, Dimitri. Dimitri is awesome...so calm and just well, hot. And I still really like Christopher, he was the best during the end :)
Cover Chit Chat: I had the newer cover (the picture above is the older cover) I like the older cover more it has more information then a giant head and a hand holding a strand of hair from the giant head. But, if I was to grade the cover I have I will have to give it a (B-) and a (B+) for the old cover.
All in all, Vampire Academy fans will not be disappointed! And those who love reading vampire stories start Vampire Academy NOW!
