Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5) by Richelle Mead, 2010 by Razorbill, 489 pages.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong...
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in
Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her
best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can't wait
for their real lives beyond the Academy's iron gates to begin. But
Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there,
She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And
now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her
blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won't rest until Rose
joins him... forever.
I'm really enjoying this series, and found Spirit Bound to be one of the best in the series yet.
Again, Rose has to make difficult choices, and puts herself in mortal danger to help those she loves. This time, Rose and Lissa have graduated from St. Valdimir's and are at the royal court. Adrian plays a pretty big role as he is now dating Rose.
I still love how strong and independent Rose is, how she is smart and tough and able to take care of herself, though sometimes she still needs help from her friends and has a certain amount of teenage moodiness. I also like how Lissa is becoming more independent too, and more considerate of how things are affecting Rose. Then there is Adrian. I like Adrian, how genuine and caring he really is, but how no one looks to him to save the day.
Like the other books in this series, it is full of action, suspense and twists. I absolutely loved the twist at the end and can hardly wait to read the next (and I believe) last in this series.
