Synopsis

How far will Rose go to keep her promise?

The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir's Academy was the deadliest ever in the school's history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri.

He'd rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?

Setting
It takes place in St. Vladimir's Academy in the beginning of the book. Then eventually, Rose has to travel to Moscow, Russia in search of Dimitri. It also takes place in today's time.
Characters
Rose: She has to face the decision about whether or not to stay at the academy and protect Lissa with her life, or do go after Dimitri and fullfill the one wish he had in case this ever happened.

Lissa: Being the last Dragonite princess, she will always have a guardian with her, even if it isn't Rose. And that is her conflict, because with the bond she has with Rose, nobody will ever understand Lissa like Rose does.
Good Points
I loved how Rose would really explain what she was feeling and seeing when she would look through Lissa's eyes. It was as if you really were in Rose's brain. And when Rose talks about Russia, there are many many details about what buildings she is seeing and the people she passes.
Bad Points
I honestly don't feel like there were any bad parts in this book at all. Other than the fact of what happened to Dimitri, I love this book and all of the problems and characters that come with it.
Plot Summary
After an attack at St Vladimir's Academy, many Guardians, Moroi, and Strigoi were dead. Some Strigoi took some hostages, one of them being Dimitri Belikov. Rose decides to go to Russia to try to find Dimitri and a last attempt to save him. She eventually finds him, but things go a little differently than she planned.
Ending
I do think the ending was extremely satisfying because where this book leaves off, it really makes you want to read the next one.
