Blood Promise: A Vampire Academy Novel
Oh how I have missed Dimitri, and was highly anticipating this book, expecting another beautiful, but difficult, love story. I was hoping that the noble, god-like Strigoi warrior would, somehow, still be himself (if you read the previous book, you were probably heartbroken at how it ended). Alas, it was wishful thinking. While I enjoyed the book, apparently, I spent a great deal of it, frowning.
This book focuses on Rose’s search for Dimitri, in his new “Strigoi” form (evil vampire), with the intention to stake him (a promise each of them made to each other if they were ever “turned”). She travels to Russia, and through a few new contacts, and events, eventually finds herself at his family’s residence. Once she delivers the news, the anguished family accepts her as one of their own, and she stays with them for awhile, taking comfort in being surrounded by those closest to Dimitri.
