Review: Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5)

Title: Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5)
Author: Richelle Mead
Rating: 4.25 of 5 stars

Goodreads Summary:
Salvation has its price. 
The words stunned Adrian for a moment, but he kept going. "You're lying. What you're describing is impossible. There's no way to save a Strigoi. When they're gone, they're gone. They're dead. Undead. Forever." 

Robert's next words weren't directed at Adrian. They were spoken to me. "That which is dead doesn't always stay dead....

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere. 

She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever. 

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey—whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what—and who—matters most to her. In the end, is true love really worth the price? 

Fall in love with Rose and Dimitri all over again in Spirit Bound, the eagerly awaited fifth novel in Richelle Mead's enthralling Vampire Academy series.

My Take:
This series just keeps getting better and better! 

Mead knows how to create a wonderful story. She makes a couple things happen at once - we have the Dimitri is a Strigoi issues, Christian and Lissa are still broken up, Adrian wants a relationship, and there's chaos in the royal court. SO much and it's all got me hooked! 

I almost tore into the last book right after this but I made myself sleep instead. I never saw that ending coming :O Thank goodness I don't have to wait a year like everyone else, or I'd go cra-zy. 

I have to admit, I wasn't ever a huge fan of Dimitri, at least not like all the other girls who read this series seem to be, but after this book.. well, he's grown on me, a lot. Christian and Adrian though are still competing for my favorite characters. What can I say, I like the crazy ones. This book has a lot of Adrian, and it's making me really excited to read [book:Bloodlines|8709527]. 

Read this book now!
