Rose is trying to graduate while Dimitri is still a deadly strigoi. Rose returns to St Vladimir defeated after trying to save Dimitri and he torments her with love notes about how he plans to kill her. Oh Dimitri if I didn't love you so much I would hate you! Rose and Lissa use their enemy to find out the secret to saving Dimitri, but have to break all kinds of rules to do it. Lissa goes along with the plan since she had made a promise to Rose that she would help her try and save Dimitri and in the end she does manage to save Dimitri and he is grateful to Lissa but what I wasn't expecting is his reaction towards Rose. Hello Rose gave up everything to save you and you just don't want to see her? All the gratitude is for Lissa?!? I have never been a fan of Lissa so this just reminded me why I disliked her. What made matters worse is she gets all protective over Dimitri. How could Dimitri forgot that Rose went through hell to honor him and everything he did to her in Blood Promise. I wasn't happy with the book but I still loved the series. Check back tomorrow for my thoughts on Last Sacrifice.
For Buffy Fans: This is like when Willow brings Angel soul back and instead of being grateful to Buffy he is all at Willows feet. No!
