Review: Shadow Kiss (VA #3) by Richelle Mead

Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)

Title: Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy #3)
Author: Richelle Mead

It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all... might be seeing ghosts.

As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly threat no one saw coming changes their entire world, Rose must put her own life on the line - and choose between the two people she loves most.

Again the story continues where the last one stopped. All the same characters are back. 
Thankfully, the romance has finally increased a little. I finally felt some real emotion from Dimitri, which was exciting and perfect and worth the wait. There was even a pretty nice, very clean, romantic scene between the two of them! 

Mason even showed his pretty, pale face for a shirt time, but who knows if it's because Rose is crazy or what... Adrian was  back again, as  I had expected. Though she didn't hardly show him the time of day! I still think he is growing on me though.

Basically the story was about the novices going through their field experience training. It was cool to see how they handled it, especially the few who had seen strigoi before. (Rose, Mia, Eddie) It was good to see how they would be expected to live their lives on an everyday basis. Kinda sucked to be a dhympir.

Also, some (moroi and dhympir alike) are starting to fight for the ability to let the Moroi fight (with their magic) alongside the dhympirs. This was a kinda a big thing at the beginning  of the book, then it wasn’t for a while,  then was again.  Im hoping in the next book, there will be some change.

Then  towards the end, some strigoi attack and all hell breaks loose. Some die... even someone kinda important. And  it was sad... but I kinda feel like somehow that person will come back... I don't know.

Also, we got to see the crazxy queen for a little while again. Which was disconcerting, as she doesn like Rose, and has some crazy big plans for Lissa (which don’t include Christian) so… I also feel we’ll be seeing more of her in the next book.

Overall, more romance and more action make this the best book in the series so far.

Rating: 5 Stars.
