The sixth and final book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice, was a great finale. Queen Tatianna is murdered, and Rose is framed by an unknown source; Rose, Lissa, and friends must figure out who framed Rose and find Lissa’s hidden half-sibling to make things right. This installment was much better than Spirit Bound; it took on more of an exciting and mysterious thriller quality than its predecessors, and Rose seemed more like her old self.

Spirit Bound, the fifth novel in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, was all over the place. After returning from her journey to Siberia, Rose is caught up in the hope of turning Dimitri back into a damphir. Rose recruits Lissa, Eddie, and some unlikely friends to return Dimitri to his original state while preparing to become an ocial guardian. This book was more drawn out than it needed to be; it was especially slow initially; however, things did pick up closer to the middle of the book.
Blood Promise, the fourth book in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, is the best of the series so far. After Dimitri is turned into a strigoi, Rose abandons her old life, including her best friend, to find and kill the man she loved. After traveling to Russia, Rose finally finds Dimitri, but instead of killing him, she is kidnapped by him. While Rose is being held by a group of strigoi, Lissa is stuck at St.
Origin, the fourth book in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, is somehow better than the series’ previous novels. After a failed attempt to raid Mount Weather and make it out in one piece, Katy is stuck behind enemy lines, and Daemon will do anything to get her back, even join her. While held by Dedalus, Katy, Daemon, and friends will uncover new secrets that will change everything.
Opal is Jennifer L. Armentrout's third addition to her Lux series, and it's the most intense installment yet. After Dawson's return, rescuing Beth becomes everyone's newest mission, but it won't be easy. Daemon, Katy, and the others struggle to invade a DoD facility, but more importantly, they don't know who to trust.
Obsidian, the first book in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Lux series, was shamefully addicting. This book fits the typical YA paranormal romance plotline, but I couldn’t put it down. Katy, a typical girl next door character, moves to the middle of nowhere in West Virginia, where her neighbors, Daemon and Dee Black, are aliens. Forming a relationship with the Blacks places Katy in the middle of a timeless rivalry between the Luxen and their evil alien counterparts, the Arum.
Shadow Kiss is the third book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. This installment explores what it means to be shadow kissed and Rose's feelings for Dimitri. When Rose's mind is tainted by unexplainable darkness, and she begins to see ghosts, including Mason's, she must decide who she will confide in, risking her closest relationships while trying to move on. I absolutely loved Rose's continued character development; she took a giant step toward becoming more mature in this book.
Frostbite, the second novel in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, was even better than the first book. After a mysterious strigoi attack threatens the protections surrounding St. Vladimir's Academy, the student body takes a trip to a ski lodge. On the trip, controversy arises among the moroi, and Rose is held hostage by a group of strigoi.
Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, the first book in a series of the same name, was excellent. After running away from school, Lissa, a Moroi princess, and her unofficial guardian/best friend, Rose, are caught and forced to return to St. Vladimir's Academy. There, the two girls must figure out who's after Lissa, all while trying to navigate a high school filled with vampires.
