Review - Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy 3) by Richelle Mead

4 out of 5

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...

My Review:
The darkest book so far. Rose and Dimitri get much closer in this novel. Rose also has Adrian peering into her dreams. She's seeing Mason as a ghost, and she begins to realise what it is to be 'Shadow-kissed'.

Rose begins her field experience and falls short immediately. But she's too scared to tell anyone the reason why because no one will believe her. She visits the Court for Victor Dashkovs trial. The evil villian threats to expose her and Dimitri's secret but he starts baiting her with her shadowkissed past.
Eventually when she returns from the Court she confides in Dimitri after passing out on the flight back. Their relationship climbs to new levels and when Strigoi attack the school she starts to feel more like his equal. Except the worst thing imaginable happens to Dimitri and ultimately she must make a decision. Does she stay at school or do what must be done?

Brilliant story that will test your emotional levels to the max!
