165) Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

Rose made a promise. She promised that she would kill the man she loves if he was turned Strigoi. Now she has to keep her promise but first she has to find Dimitri before she can see it through. She has no idea where he is but she has left St. Vladimir's Academy and has travelled to Dimitri's home country, Russia. She has no idea where to start looking but it isn't long before she feels sick to the stomach and finds some Strigoi.

Finding Dimitri isn't easy but Rose knows that killing him will be even harder. Then Rose finds herself torn between finding Dimitri and looking after her friend Lissa. Checking in with Lissa isn't hard for Rose but what she keeps seeing isn't all good. Will Rose find what she is looking for and get back to the US in time to help her friends? Can she really kill the man she loves?

Blood Promise is the fourth and by far the best book so far in the Vampire Academy series. The change of scenery made for interesting reading while the challenge facing Rose kept adding suspense all the way through the book. Emotions were high but Rose kept strong and shows the reader that she can be grown up and look after herself. I really liked Rose in this book and I hope it is the start of new older and wiser future guardian.

There were a few twists in this installment and it has left me wondering what could possibly happen next. Will everything work out the way we would like it go? I can't wait for book five and even though the 'Academy' is coming to an end I hope this series can continue to grow into the college years. I hope we will be seeing a lot more of Rose and the other characters that I have come to know and love.

I'm reading this right now. About halfway through and loving it. This series is fantastic, one of the best YA out there right now (and *the* best vampire series, I think).
